27+ Formal Living Room Design Ideas (Pictures)

The formal living room is not quite the style we can say it is “in trend”, but it is part of that select group that never goes out of style because it has its “loyal followers.” Another factor that makes the formal living room almost disappear is their size. The new apartments are smaller every day and use a room to have an place especially to receive visitors, far from any technology that distracts the good chat, really, has not been considered a priority.

However, for those who would like to have a formal living room and have this space available, but are not even sure where to start, below you will see the tips on how to decorate this lovely room. Whether it’s structure, furniture or objects, we teach how to set the right tone for a formal living room. Check out the tips!

1- The atmosphere of a formal living room should look broad even when it is not the reality. Unfortunately, another problem with the new apartments is just the height. Some are so low that they suffocate. However, you always have to use those decoration games to set the right tone for the ambient. In the case of a formal living room, it is common for the curtains to come out from the top, placed on the ceiling, and if it is tall, choose a fabric that has vertical lines to magnify that feeling.

2- We know that the wallpaper is up and it has everything to do with the formal living room. Just find the right shade, the right texture and put it in a central point of the decor. Remember that in choosing a texture and colors for the wallpaper, all elements of that ambient should be taken into consideration. And there is more, the size of the room, if it is small, dark colors, more full-bodied textures, should be avoided.

3- Who can afford to have a large formal living room, which would be ideal to use all the “techniques” to have this space at home, can make divisions. Not to put all the furniture leaning on the walls, on the contrary, give movement to the room by creating groups of places. Kind of like the seats in a hotel lobby. This decoration for the living room works mainly when the area is used to hold some kind of party.

4 – Some objects should NOT be present in a formal living room and certainly the top of this list is the television. The most you can do, in case you can not have the TV room separate, but want to have your formal living room a lot is to create a space for the fake electronic. For example, by putting the television inside a custom cabinet, have a running mirror that makes it disappear completely.

Another solution is to place it framed as if it were a frame and leave a still image of a drawing or figure as if that were its usefulness and not that of watching. Obviously, except with the presence of only the family, the television in the living room should not be in sight or working as such when you receive a visit if your goal is to have a unique room.

5 – Typically, architects seek to create a driveway leading to the formal living room. In general, they start from a ladder, for example, whose photos and pictures can be placed on path to the living room. Of course, not everyone will have the stairs, in this case, you can improvise a hallway and the floor can be differentiated to give this charm to the formal living room. Another alternative that architects is to use a floating shelf marking the way to get to the room.

6- The plants are a must that can not miss in a formal living room decor. You can not miss it, you have to have it and to make sure they always look beautiful, choose the one that suits the type of ambient, considering lighting, air circulation.

The grandmas used artificial plants in the formal living room, but today, it is not appropriate to do the same. In the impossibility of having a plant of truth, prefer to place objects that refer to something associated with nature.

7- At least one architectural element has to be part of the decoration of a formal living room. Choose something traditional, which does not necessarily have to be a piece that costs a fortune.
