The living room plays a very important part in each house, because it is considered as the face of the house owner. A beautiful living room with elegant and luxurious style can demonstrate the care of the house owner to his or her family as well as the living condition of them. Therefore, knowing how to decorate the living room with all kinds of furniture such as some ceiling fans or a sofa that is on top of the current trend is one of the most essential skill that you should know when taking care of your house. In this article, I will show you some furniture I think you might focus on to have the best result.
This is considered the must – have furniture in your living room. A beautiful and proper sofa would be the main spotlight of the room. Depending on the structure and the size of your room, as well as the room traffic, you should choose the size for the sofa so that the room can have the best position in the living room without colliding anything. If your room is quite small and the sofa is a little bit too big, the way to move around the living room could be narrowed, and that’s one thing every designers have to avoid. For a living room which is not too big in area, an I shape or L shape sofa in medium size would be perfect for space saving.
Living room always needs a comfortable set of sofa. It can be used for a small family meeting or guests up to 4 or 6 people at the same time, or can be used as a nap place at noon for a person comfortably. Moreover, sofa can also be the favorite place for children to play as a chair game. If your house doesn’t have additional bedroom for guests or relatives that must come overnight, you still can use sofa as a bed.

Using the ceiling fan can help you not only in cooling down the atmosphere inside the room in summer days, but it also can be a decorating furniture if you can choose the right one that suits for room’s style.
However, the maintaining and cleaning process for the ceiling fan requires time and works. The fan is just used in summer, so that it could be covered with thick layer of dust in winter. If you want your ceiling fan to be strong with long lifespan, you should take care of it regularly.

Try to refresh your living room with a floor carpet, and you will see yourself the warmth that it brings to your house. Floor carpet is also a way for house owner to show his or her sense of beauty and the style of the house.
In general, with the living room that has modern and simple style, you should choose thick carpet with solid color. That would go well with the spare shape furniture. In contrast, if your living room is designed with many complicated details or vintage furniture, you can consider buying thin carpet with unique patterns.
