Let’s talk about that communal space of the home that has earned these common names; living room, sitting room, front room, or lounge, over time.
However, in the report by John Lewis & Partners, the living room is the most popular name that represents this space, closely followed by the lounge.
Interestingly, watching TV is the activity nearly all of us do in this space. So, I won’t sound cheesy calling this space the TV room too.
Meanwhile, beyond your ideal relaxation space, you should take a look at these 3 interesting factors that have made the living room a special part of our homes;
1.) Love Symbolism
Isolation is not what you project in a living room.
The heart symbolizes love. Similarly, the living room symbolizes love as well. The living room serves as the heart of the home, uniting family and friends in revelries and merrymaking. Being the first room you see when you enter the house, it is usually decorated with the things the family loves the most – paintings, pictures, accessories, ornaments, and, degrees award. As the receiving room for visitors, it basically sets the mood of the home and reflects the personality of its owners.
2.) The First impression
In the house, the living room is the first room the visitor walks into. This is why it’s critical to be realistic about your intentions for your living space.
Well implemented interior design ideas can help in creating a lasting first impression on visitors who enter your house. You should spend so much time designing your living room, to make sure it is the most comfortable and the best one you can get for yourself, and your guests, extensively.
Make a great first impression with elegant home decors.
3.) Multiple Functions
The living room takes on different roles all at once. From where intimacy grows within the family to where you gather to talk with friends, a fun place for the children to play, a sanctuary to take a nap or relax with a book
Tip: When designing a sitting room, arrange furniture in a way that facilitates conversation.
