Decoration of Room Creative Tips From an Architect2

The living room is the cosy atmosphere, it is in him that we receive the friends and family, it is also in the living room that we aconchegamos to watch a movie eating popcorn on the couch, at the same time that the room needs to be a pleasant and organized to receive, it must be comfortable to use on a day-to-day. So the decoration of the room is not as simple as it appears to be, in fact it is more than decorating, is to plan and design the space so that it is functional.

Then in your interior project you will have to assess the relevant activities in the living room or dinner and how many people the rooms should meet. This is an important question to know the necessity of seating in the living room and in the dining room and that you can determine the layout of the furniture, especially in the decoration of the small room, where it is necessary to plan the usability of the space with attention.

Few people can count with TV room, living room and dining room, today most of the houses and apartments have sizes reduzidíssimos, so it is common for environments to be integrated into: living room, dining room and kitchen.

This integration between the environments extends the visual range and makes it seem that the space is larger.

On the other hand, with ever-smaller spaces you need to have the creativity to deal with so many functions in a compact space, this is the main challenge in the decoration of small rooms.

Decoration of Small Rooms

I’m going to start citing the famous phrase from architect Mies “Less is More”, because after all, in confined spaces, what is important are the things that are essential, or to be functional. Only, that the project does not start with the choice of furniture and decorative accessories of the room.

The project begins with the analysis of the space and of the relations between the spaces (functions and circulation) of how that space can be appropriated by residents. Then from the definition of the spaces and the sizing of the furniture.

The two mistakes committed in the decoration of the rooms occur precisely when there is made a plan of the space before choosing furniture are: pack the room objects and restrict the movement of persons.

The furniture may not hinder the passage, I know that the will of many people is to put sofas 2 and 3 places in their rooms, but not always this is cool in small rooms, even if it is possible may not be the best choice.

Sofas without arms, and with straight lines, like the picture above, are much more appropriate, because they allow more people to sit, and are less impactful visually.

This also applies to the choice of materials, transparent objects, create a perception of free space, metal parts tend to have the structure more slender than the wood, light colours create more spaces illuminated and that appear to be larger and objects with few details and textures draw less attention, therefore do not “weigh” the visual. This is the rule? Not.

If the small room has white walls, white furniture, without tables, without textures, without shelves, without pads … no grace! The word order in the decoration of the living and dining rooms is balance, always seek the balance between the colours, shapes and textures, bringing something personal that is distinctive.

Colors for the living Room

Now let’s talk a little bit of color to the room without falling into the me to indicate only light colors to illuminate the room and expand the feel of the station, because the dark colors can also collaborate to increase the visual perception, when used well in a design interior create the illusion of depth and space.

The textures and colored objects make the environment come to life, that attract the attention to various points and break the monotony visual, you just have to know where and when to use.

In general, the intense colours, saturated (red, blue, yellow, green, orange, purple, etc.) are used accompanied by neutral colors (white, black, grey, brown, ochre, concrete, beige, etc.). In this way, the environment is not very loaded, with neutral colors clear printing is a more illuminated, larger, already with the dark colors of the environment is more intimate.

When the TV room is large, or when there is a room specifically for the TV, Home Theater, dark colors and matte are a great option, because they absorb the light and leave the room looking like a cinema.

Already when the environments are integrated and small, the light colors bring a feeling of spaciousness, lightness and cleanliness. The white color is very much associated with psychologically with cleaning and purification. In this case the colors more intense or dark, can be applied in the details (pillows, vases, frames, sculptures, books,…), or even on a wall background.

The great advantage of using the colors on the objects is that it’s easy to exchange the covers of the pads, replace a few pots and leave the room with another guy quickly.

When the room is close to the dark color applied to the entire wall and the furniture can give a sense of depth when in contrast to other light walls, the higher the contrast the better to cause that feeling.

Or even, this dark color may be applied to the floor, a wooden floor ebanizado surrounded by white walls is wonderful and the print of that foot-the right is larger. Just not worth to throw a rug over the top and cover the floor.

Rugs for living Room

Then, the carpet in the room is bad? NOT. Only when you want to highlight the floor and create a visual effect between the floor and the wall!

In the rooms the carpets are allies of the acoustic absorption of internal, all the material is fibrous, foam and even fabric more bulky help control the reverberation in the room.

The carpet or even the carpet has the advantage of being used as an extension of the sofa when the room is receiving many people, who do not like to lie down on a soft carpet with some pillows?

On the other hand, people with allergies should avoid the use of carpets and other fibrous materials, as they tend to accumulate dirt, and if the maintenance is not constant representing risk to respiratory health.

Another risk that the rug can represent is that of stumbling across the room, so it does not to err on the size of the rug chosen. See this infographic cool about the optimal size of the living room carpet.

The same goes for the dining room, the rug has to be at least 80 cm more than a table with chairs in disrepair. Because, when they are being used, the chairs will be pulled back and if the carpet is short at the feet of the chairs will screw in. When they are busy, the chairs must be within the area of the rug to avoid accidents.

In the living room, the furniture has to hold the rug so that it does not keep sliding. If you want to use runners in the hallways, or in the kitchen, make sure that it is completely fixed to the floor. See this link for photos of rugs for the living room.

Curtains for living Room

When the rooms are integrated, dining room, lounge with tv and kitchen, the ideal is to use curtains versatile, with three layers. The voal light and transparent, the lining of course and material most simple and yet the blackout to block light in time to watch the tv.

The curtains should start almost flush with the ceiling to near the floor, should never start a bit above the window. At least 30 cm from the beginning of the window, and with plenty of 30 cm on both sides to prevent the light enters through the edges.

It is possible to combine the vertical blinds with fabric curtains, but never blinds horizontal fabric curtains.

Frames for living Room

To enhance the walls and attract the visual attention, giving more dynamism to the living room, the frames are a great option, but you need to know how to arrange the frames, then check out this image and some compositions with frames of different sizes.

Panel for the living Room TV

The panels for the TV are great for hiding the electrical cables, internet, sound and image – are so many that sometimes a node literally.
