A lot will always depend on the size of your living room. The thought arises that if you have a rather large living room at your disposal then, joy of joys, you can really go to town, quite literally, with your design intentions. But do not be too sure, and do not be too hasty. You will be surprised just how quickly you can fill that good space with ineffective and sometimes completely un-decorative and usually quite cluttered. Yes, this can easily happen with a large living room space. You might thing that it is not quite the same with a smaller, much smaller, alternative.

Fair enough, but still, a design plan is still needed if you are going to be creatively successful. And that is the clue to it all. Start your decorating project off with an easy to use design plan. There is no need to confuse the issue by cluttering your plan with far too much information. Start by focusing on a few important basics. Two of those will be the budget and the creation of a focal point. Both these depend on you personally. It depends on what you feel you can afford to spend on decorating your rooms and what your tastes or style preferences might be.

Either way, being budget conscious is just fine, because here is a great opportunity for you to be even more creative. Bereft of ideas on how to create your focal point, let us offer you just one idea that continues to generate effectiveness. Living room floor lamps continue to be all the rage if you pardon the expression. You can utilize different shapes, go for square if you like, and shades to generate the perfect lighting effects to build around with.
