Living Room Accessories - How to choose them: Tips & Ideas

The concept of housing is nearly 1.8 million years old (1) which means that the art of sanctifying one’s personal space has been evolving, just as mankind has. Our homes mirror our way of living and therefore they occasionally require intricate attention to detail in terms of maintenance, design and upkeep.

The living room is perhaps one such area of the house - it is an embodiment of one's personality, a reflection of taste, and of how guests, or the outside world, perceives you. At the same time, it is supposed to have a certain amount of comfort that blends in with personal aesthetics, because that is where the family lounges around and spends quality time with loved ones. The family lounge area should embody both comfort and luxury, reflecting personal aesthetics, as it serves as a cherished gathering place where family members can relax and spend quality time together.

In addition to comfort and luxury, the family lounge area should prioritize ergonomics, ensuring that the space is designed to promote proper posture and reduce strain on the body. This is essential for creating an inviting and functional space where family members can enjoy spending time together.

Incredible tips and ideas for choosing living room accessories

We have put together a list of living room accessory ideas to help you make well-informed choices in terms of adorning your living spaces:


Stick to a theme

While choosing decorative accessories for the living room, make sure that you stick to a particular theme instead of putting together random items. If you wish for the theme to be kitschy, then an eclectic mix of styles and materials work, as long as the colours and fabrics complement each other. A beginners helpful tip toward serene surroundings is to opt for neutral-coloured accessories, highlighted with a pop of colour here and there.

Be careful of the sizing

You might have seen that a big lounge chair has a small stamp-sized cushion mounted on top of it. No matter how pretty that cushion is, it won't do much in terms of accessorising. Choose accessories that complement the size and style of your living room, and your living room furniture. If you wish to have differently-sized accessories, you can layer them amongst larger accessories.

Experiment with the arrangements

It is always advisable to opt for quality over quantity when choosing living room accessories. For instance, you can add big cushions to the sofa first and then throw on some small highlighters. Then again, cushions need not always be on a sofa- floor cushions are all the rage, especially for easy nooks in family living rooms, and in dens. Try to opt for balance while putting together different accessories in your living space instead of focusing too much on symmetry


Your home speaks oodles about your aesthetic taste and living sensibilities and therefore it makes great sense to put articulate effort into beautifying your abode in the best possible way. After all, your home is nothing less than a sanctuary and it needs all the love, attention and care. We hope that the above-mentioned tips will help you in decorating the home of your dreams.


1. How do I decide what to decorate in my living room?

Accessories can have a significant impact on the overall appeal of your room. They can add an extra dash of creativity and finishing touches to the final look of your living room. The nature of accessories can beautifully personify the artistic flair and personalities of home dwellers.
