Sometimes coming up with living room wall decor ideas can be challenging. There are windows, fireplaces, and entryways to work with. Some living rooms have extra high ceilings, so how do you fill that space correctly?
Today, I would love to share with you some of my simple steps to choosing living room wall decor ideas that not only will fit your style, but will fit your space beautifully.
Decorating a Fireplace Mantel
The living room’s focal point is usually the fireplace. When beginning to decorate with wall decor I like to begin with the focal point. I realize you may not have a fireplace, but for those of you who do have one, let’s begin here.
One of the most common problems is deciding whether you want a television above your mantel, or in another part of the room. This becomes a problem because then there are two focal points. What makes this become a problem is deciding how you arrange your seating. Which focal point do you have your seating face?
To keep both focal points in one area, mounting the television above your mantel a great solution. But, you may hate the idea of how ascetically unpleasing it is to see a television above the mantel. A great solutions is to have a special cabinet to house your television when not viewing. Then that built-in can become a great piece of wall art decor.
Fabulous Ideas for Hiding a Television!
I saw this television cabinet in a home in Nashville. What a completely brilliant idea! This cabinet is mirrored with antique mirrors, and opens in the middle. It creates dual function! Not only is it beautiful, but it hides the television when not in use! I love it!
Choosing the Right Fireplace Decor
This rock fireplace is beautiful, but the pine mantel didn’t add much to the detail. I painted the fireplace mantel black, and purchased a new fireplace screen, and accessories.
