When it comes to living room decoration, most homes tend to have dull, bare walls that make them appear as nothing more than a boring collection of boxes people inhabit. It doesn’t have to be that way, as you can create something unique and beautiful with only a marginal amount of work required to pull it off. One of the biggest mistakes you can make is to completely rely upon the vision of others instead of creating something unique you can work with on your own.

Ask yourself one simple question: Does this work? If the answer to your question is not to your satisfaction, then you will need to change the results of your living room decoration efforts into something more reliable and pleasant. You can do your decorations as you see fit, but we will point out a few ideas you can use if they are to your liking.

Before undertaking any major actions, you need to prepare your walls with a thorough cleaning. Dusting is essential. Pay extra attention to the areas around the sinks, stoves and basically everywhere splashes occur. Wall cleaning will help you achieve a polished and finished look when you decorate.

You can use fabric to create a unique and stylish look for your walls. You might be surprised at how well you can do this by creating collages of patterns for unique and great-looking artsy decorations. Don’t worry about the maintenance of the walls. Cleaning them is not as difficult as you think. It will take some work, but with the right approach, you will have what it takes to make it happen.

The next thing you need to decide upon is a good theme for the living room décor you have in mind. It's recommended that you stick to a single theme per room, encompassing the walls with similar decorations that work well in all cases. A clean and simplistic design is a safe bet. Make your choice wisely and work with anything that will get things looking good in the long run, as long as it stays within the realms of the aesthetically pleasing and not something unfeasible.

The next thing worth noting is that you will need to pick a good color scheme you can work with. Do keep in mind that colors will have a profound impact on the psyche of those who live inside, so do your best to ensure you have something welcoming as part of the color scheme.

You can also use photographs and paintings as powerful decorating tools, making them a great part of the efforts you place in having the ideal home. If you want to create the perfect look, then you can use some strategically placed decorations of this kind to have the desired effect. If you happen to use too many of them, then you will create a sense of claustrophobia, so make sure you use them in moderation. It will also require extra effort when it comes to your cleaning routine.

Experiment as you see fit with your living room walls, but have things flowing as you work. A harmonic look will always feel welcome in most rooms, but you would do well to ensure you don’t mess things up with out-of-sync, screaming colors or something else that simply doesn’t fit in with the rest of your decorations in a meaningful way. Once you do that, you will have no issues dealing with the rest of your decorating needs.
