Whether you live in a loft, have a living room with extremely high ceilings or simply have a lot of space to fill, these 10 ideas can help you make your room feel balanced and comfortable!
STRATEGICALLY PLACE TALL POTTED PLANTS
Fill vertical height in rooms with tall ceilings or fill bare, lonely corners with potted trees.
As long as your space gets enough light to support the plant’s needs, you really can’t go with adding a massive houseplant!
PAINT TWO-TONE WALLS
While tall potted plants are great for drawing the eyes up and accentuating high ceilings, sometimes we crave the opposite effect.
Painting color on your walls only part of the way up, creates a cozier feeling, tricking the eye into thinking the ceilings are lower than they are!
SWAP YOUR COFFEE-TABLE FOR OVERSIZED OTTOMANS
Large seating arrangements can feel a bit empty if there are too much distance between the sofa and coffee-table.
Choosing a big upholstered ottoman instead of a traditional coffee-table will close that gap and add softness at the same time!
DEFINE ZONE WITH A CONSOLE TABLE
Another option for sectioning off parts of a large living room, is floating your sofa in the middle of the room and placing a console table behind it.
This is an excellent way to make look smaller a large living room, and at the same time comfortable, cozy and very decorative!
ADD COZINESS WITH A SCREEN
In a large, open space you may want to create an area that feels more protected and intimate-decorative screens are your friend for this.
Partially folded and placed behind your sofa, a screen will create the impression of a smaller room without stopping the floor of the room!
COMFORTABLY FILL A LARGE SPACE WITH AN L-SHAPED SECTIONAL
Large, modern spaces, are especially suited to accommodate a great big L-shaped sofa.
This piece screams luxe and comfort. Isn’t it?
USE AN L-SHAPED SECTIONAL AS A ROOM DIVIDER
Another great place for your L-shaped sofa is between two seating areas or dividing the living room and dining spaces, in an open-place space.
No doubt, this is a great functional and practical way to make a large living room feel comfy!
FILL DEAD WALLS SPACE RATHER THAN LETTING IT GO BARE
In a large space, it is nearly always best to pull furniture off the walls, creating cozy arrangements closer to the center of the space.
The trouble is, this can leave a great deal of wall space bare-don’t let it go to waste.
You can fill the walls of your large living room with some nice frames! Nothing more comfy and cozy than this!
USE OCCASIONAL CHAIRS
Another great use of surplus wall space is for housing a few extra chairs.
A console table between a pair of chairs with a large mirror or artwork above.
Always looks smart, and you can pull the chairs in closer, when hosting a large group of people!
Color and pattern can be used to brake up big expanses of walls in a great room or cut the size of a tall wall down to a more comfortable height.
With varying shades of neutrals or colors painted above and below the molding, that will make it feel smaller, cozy and very comfortable!
