30+ Luxurious Modern Living Room Decor Ideas


Living rooms cater for many needs. They are for relaxing and socialising, listening to music and entertaining. They can also be used for eating and drinking, watching TV and playing. Modern living room design tries to cater for the whole range of activities and making the most of the space we have often becomes a top priority when thinking about decorating and furnishing the room.

The trend in modern living rooms is for a more open design – you need to look carefully at the quality of natural light in the room and how to supplement it with additional light sources. Wooden furniture with a natural finish is a good choice as it tends to lend a light and airy aspect to the furnishings, as well as giving some much-needed warmth and character.


Now think about what you actually need, and what you might desire to have space for – in other words, separate your needs from your wants. For instance, you might need space for a sofa, TV and music, lighting and a coffee table and sideboard. You might want space for toys and books, DVD and CD storage and your hi-fi speakers.

What you can actually fit into your room will depend on the size and shape of the space you have. You may have to be ruthless in your choices – it is important to obtain a balance between the areas taken up with furniture and open areas you use for access around the room.
