The living room is often one of the most-used rooms in a home, so when redecorating or remodeling think about how you can maximize utility and comfort. And whether the focus of the room is a home entertainment system or a functional space for conversation, a good way to anchor the room is by using a focal point. Sometimes your living room will have one already, like a fireplace and mantle, but if not you can create your own.
Painting the floors can open up a world of design possibilities, especially if you choose to paint or stain a concrete floor. For modern simplicity, a bold, solid color or bright white works well. You can also imitate the look of traditional checkerboard tile with two contrasting paint colors. Concrete floors look especially sleek with an ultra-shiny coat of epoxy that reflects light back into the space. Concrete can also be stained for a more subtle finish that imitates the look of quarried stone or marble for a more natural look.
Check the joints and frame. The best sofas have joints that are double doweled and fitted with corner blocks that are both glued and screwed (not stapled) into place. Quality pieces have legs that are part of the frame, not just attached to it (although removable feet do make it easier to get items through doorways).
