Open spaces do attract clutter. The more space we have the more we try and fill it, often with things that could easily be tidied away if only some storage had been planned for them. Built-in cupboards are a solution here but if your room does not suit this style, then think carefully about some other options. Solid oak sideboards or oak cupboards work very well. A natural wood finish helps to keep the living space look open and spacious, and their solid construction will resist many knocks. Solid oak, and indeed solid pine, can be easily looked after - minor scratches and marks are easily sanded away and a light application of oil or wax will bring out the natural warmth and give the furniture a really mellow appeal. Cupboard space like this will give you plenty of room to tidy away toys, DVDs and books.
Of course, you will also want to provide space near all of these seating arrangements for snacks and drinks, as most people like to enjoy something while they are watching the television. Providing a table for every seat is generally a good rule of thumb to follow. It will give everyone the space to set something down while they become absorbed in what they are doing.
Play with textures. Do not be afraid to use stripes and polka dots in the same room. Texture the walls before you paint them. Use brightly colored and variegated pillows or throw rugs to add definition to the room. Use mirrors to make a room bigger. Set them above the mantel or in an empty spot above a larger piece of furniture. Lighting is one of the biggest assets to your living room. Set lights behind furniture or on end tables. Use three way bulbs or mood lights to create various levels of lighting. Lamps come in hundreds of different sizes, shapes, and colors. Not only are they practical, but they can add a real art to your room.
