Did you know that the average American home contains 300,000 items? If you’re struggling with a clutter situation, you’re not alone!
But if you want a magazine-worthy space, or are just trying to decrease your stress, clutter is your worst enemy.
The right amount of living room accessories can put your mind at ease while still putting your personality on display. In this article, we’ve compiled a list of a few tips to help you do just that.
Now then, let’s get started!
Add Some Artwork
Hanging a few pieces of art is a great place to start when it comes to adding living room accessories. Whether you purchase a large piece to be the focal point of the room or several smaller works to create a gallery wall, you can’t go wrong with some artwork.
For an even more personalized look, have some professional family photos taken and display them in a collage. Depending on your family’s personality, you can take serious pictures or bring props and let everyone show a little character!
Bring in Greenery
Plants are a vital piece of any home’s decor. Not only do they quite literally add life to a room, but they’re also beneficial to your mental and physical health.
Now, unless you’re going for a jungle vibe, you don’t want to pack your living room with greenery. But a potted plant on a side table or near a window will make your space feel that much nicer.
Throw in a Rug
Rugs are ideal because they come in every size, shape, and color imaginable, making it easy to choose one to fit your style. And if you want a bohemian look, you can even bring in multiple rugs to layer as a centerpiece!
Just be sure that the color rug you choose compliments the rest of your decor. For example, if you have brightly colored walls or furniture, a neutral-toned rug will provide balance to the room.
Set Out Souvenirs
Displaying souvenirs or other trinkets in your home will instantly add personality. However, this is probably the category in which it’s easiest to go a little too far, so display sparingly.
A good rule of thumb, particularly with bookshelves, is to leave at least a third of your shelf space empty. The goal is to create an attractive arrangement of your keepsakes, not an overwhelming mess.
Choosing the Right Living Room Accessories
Well, there you have it! By using these tips, your home will be the envy of all your guests. Adding a few living room accessories to your space is important to make it your own, but you don’t want to go overboard.
Choose a few pieces of art or family photos to hang on the wall and add a plant or two. If you’re on the adventurous side, putting some souvenirs from your travels on display is a great way to show it off.
