Are you looking for the best interior design tips for your living room?

At La-Z-Boy Home Furnishings & Décor, our degreed interior designers have completed thousands of projects for our clients in NC, SC, and GA.

In this article, our team presents their top five best interior design tips for your living room.



1) Cover Your Biggest Furniture in Neutral Fabrics

You should always think about covering your biggest pieces of furniture in a neutral fabric.

Neutral fabrics can be paired with a wide range of colors and designs.

This way you can change out your accent pillows or other accessories without having to redo the entire room.

2) Use Scale & Proportion In Every Room

Always make sure you’re using scale and proportion with every item in the room.

Especially your area rug.

Look at the entire floor plan as a whole and take that into consideration when choosing the size of your rug.

3) Accessorize to Express Your Style & Personality

Accessories bring your room to life and can be the perfect conversational piece.

These items also express your personality and the things you love.

Be sure to pick items that bring a smile to your face when you see them.

4) Choose Your Fabric Before You Paint

It’s much easier to match your paint to your fabrics.

You’ll find hundreds of fabric options. But there are a near infinite amount of paints to choose from.

This is why it’s a good idea to pick your fabric before you pick your paint.

5) Use Different Layers of Lighting

You can create a different type of atmosphere by adding multiple layers of light to each room.

This way you can set the mood based on how you’re feeling or what you’re doing.

You’ll also notice your fabrics will look different based on the type of lighting in your room.
