When it comes to living rooms, our interior designers know a little thing or two. BoConcept offers a unique blend of Scandinavian simplicity and luxurious comfort, making us the perfect choice for creating a modern and inviting living room. We’ve consulted with our store teams, so let’s explore seven design tips to help you achieve a stunning living room refresh.

1. Define Your Style

Before diving into the design process, take some time to define your personal style. Working with furniture that can adapt to your style helps fuel your style journey. Consider factors such as colour schemes, textures, and overall themes that resonate with your taste. Check out our latest inspirations to find a style that speaks to you. 

2. Create a Functional Layout

Figuring out the optimal layout for your space is a great time to speak to an interior designer. Our free design service allows you to speak to industry experts about your space, no matter your project. Our designers say; “Consider the traffic flow in your living room and arrange furniture to facilitate easy movement. Consider modular sofas such as the Carmo and coffee tables that can be customised to fit your space perfectly, ensuring a harmonious balance between style and functionality.”

3. Play With Colour and Texture

BoConcept offers 100 options for upholstery and finishes, allowing you to play with colours and textures to add depth to your living room. Looking to make a statement? Consider incorporating bold accent colours or experimenting with different fabric textures to create visual interest. Looking to create a calming sanctuary? Muted, neutral shades and warm tones can be pared seamlessly with rich textures and stone finishes. BoConcept's design consultants can assist you in selecting the perfect combinations that complement your overall vision. Book a free consultation in-store.

4. Invest in Statement Pieces

Make a statement with statement furniture pieces that serve as focal points in your living room. Whether it's an iconic armchair such as the Imola, a sculptural coffee table like the Madrid, or a distinctive bookshelf like Como, these statement pieces can elevate the entire design. BoConcept's commitment to craftsmanship ensures that each piece not only looks exceptional but also stands the test of time. Learn more about our unique 5-point care guarantee.

5. Maximise Storage Solutions

Achieve a clutter-free living space by incorporating smart storage solutions. Our living rooms are generally the area of the home we spend most of our waking time in, so you’d be surprised how much clutter and items accumulate in the room. When planning storage, consider how you use your living room, as well as who uses it. Then think about what items you use in the room, and then how they are stored. You can work a plan from here, and find solutions with the help of an interior designer. From stylish sideboards to sleek wall units, BoConcept offers a range of storage options that seamlessly integrate with your design. Utilise these solutions to keep your living room organised while maintaining a polished and sophisticated look. Shop storage here.

6. Layer Lighting For Ambience

Lighting plays a crucial role in setting the mood in any living room. Experiment with contemporary lighting fixtures to create layers of illumination. Combine pendant lights, floor lamps, and table lamps to achieve a balanced and inviting ambience. The key is flexibility, allowing you to create different moods for different scenarios. BoConcept's lighting designs not only provide functionality but also serve as stylish accessories that enhance the overall aesthetic.

7. Personalise With Accessories

Add the finishing touches to your living room design with your own curated collection of accessories. From decorative cushions and throws to contemporary wall art, accessories allow you to inject your personality into the space. Don’t be afraid of personal mementoes when it comes to styling. Injecting your own personality into your space is key to making your home feel unique. Keep in mind that less is often more and choose accessories that complement your overall design scheme.

By incorporating these seven design tips, you'll not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of your living space but also create a comfortable and functional environment that reflects your unique style.
