Bold & better living room trends

This year's trends are bolder and even better! What better way to honor your living room than upgrading the decor into something new and trendy?   From using mood colors like violet to using plush upholstery like a velvet sofa and statement carpets – 2018’s decor trends will only add flamboyance and personality to your living room. 

Velvet is Trending

Just like the fashion world, the decor industry has also fallen in love with velvet. The luxe fabric has been synonymous with plush for a long time. Fusing it into the living room is a great way to embrace the change. Gone are the days when velvet used to be a fragile texture that couldn’t be washed regularly or got stained easily. Today’s new age velvet features low-maintenance properties like being machine-washable, stain and absorption resistant and more. Velvet upholstery, especially sofas, ooze out warmth and flamboyance, making you want to feel the fabric and melt into it. Opt for a bolder color for the living room sofa, say emerald, orange or purple.

 

Compact Living

 

 

With the increasing space constraint, more and more homeowners are compelled to live in smaller homes. And, hence the need for compact living comes to their rescue. Additionally, if you are living in a rented space, then you need a layout plan that can be changed and evolved with the need of the hour. Opt for modular and multi-purpose furniture such as sofa cum bed, nesting stools, and expandable coffee tables, that can be moved around easily with the changing requirements.

 

TV Unit Is the ‘In-Thing’

Gone are the days when people used to wall-mount their TV. Indeed, wall-mounted TV is a good option for small living rooms, but if you have a big living room, consider keeping them in the TV unit. If you don’t like the concept of a TV unit and feel that it might consume significant space in the living room, go for legged TV units that will make the room appear airy and light.

 

Deck Up With Indoor Plants 

 

With the world getting environment-conscious, more and more homeowners are infusing organic elements into their interiors. One such environment-friendly trend is using plants as a decor element. A large potted plant in the living room is definitely a head turner! However, not to worry, if you don’t have much time to take care of the plants. These days you get a number of low-maintenance plants like succulents, cactus, and hanging foliage that requires water once in a week.

Statement Carpets

 

Forget accent walls ‘coz this year, carpets and rugs are going to take center-stage. While you may have a plush wooden flooring in the living room, nothing can beat the panache of a heavily worked rug. Be it patterns or colors, a carpet will solve all your decor pain points.

Corner Sitting Option 

 

Trends may come and go, but the classic corner seating arrangement never seems to go out of style. Additionally, with the increase of open-floor plans, sectional sofas and occasional chairs are the most sought-after options.

From entertaining guests, hanging out with friends to relaxing with family – it is safe to say that the living room resides in the heart of the home. Hence, living room decor plays a crucial role in setting the tone for the rest of the home.
