When you first upgrade from hand-me-downs and furniture freebies, you usually have three key items in mind for the living room: A coffee table, TV stand, and - of course - a sofa.
But one thing you’ll quickly find you’re missing out on is a side table. Or two: One for both sides of the sofa.
A trusty side table is the hidden gem of the living room. The coffee table typically takes centre stage, while the side table sits subtly in the shadows away from the limelight.
But this little afterthought has a lot to give. And there are plenty of ways to incorporate side tables or corner tables into your overall living space aesthetic.
To help, we’ve gathered 21 side table ideas for the living room. The list combines side table design ideas, as well as what decor to use on top.
As we all focus to bring more natural elements into our lives, green living rooms have become increasingly popular.
Often associated with rejuvenation or health, green is the perfect go-to colour if you’re looking to bring new life into your old living space. It has the ability to make a room feel lighter and brighter, even if natural light isn’t available.
The living room should be a place to relax and recenter. However, as one of the busiest areas of the house, the space can easily become overwhelmingly cluttered.
Unfortunately, most of the things that clutter up the living are deemed essential. Letters, kid’s toys, wires from everyone’s phone chargers, etc. Pair that with sofas, side tables and other accent furniture and you’ve got a lot of ‘stuff’ to organize in the room.
If you’re looking for a way to organize your living room, you’ve come to the right place.
Whether space is premium, or you’re looking for a way to manage the toy-tornado that comes with the Terrible Twos, we’ve got living room storage ideas just for you.
Every year Pantone and Dulux release their ‘Colour of the Year’; the outcome of separate conversations with design experts to understand the mood of the public and how colour in the home is influenced by this.
Looking to spruce up your living space, but not sure where to start?
Well you’re in luck: This is your ultimate guide for lounge and sofa inspiration. Whatever your style, budget or room size, we’ve got something that will be right up your street.
Let’s get started.
Whether your living room is long and narrow, open plan, small and stuffy, or perfectly proportioned, you still want to make the space your own.
While our furniture choices can do all the talking, especially when using colours like our teal, vine or brick sofas, walls are the perfect canvas to get creative.
There may be certain features in the room’s build that you want to highlight, or perhaps the room feels a little plain and boxy. No matter what the case is with your space, a living room accent wall is a great solution.
After two strange years, it’s time for a fresh start.
You’ve likely already set yourself a few resolutions or challenges for the year, but with so much uncertainty and disruption in the air, it can be tough to feel the motivation to do anything you’ve set out to do.
If this sounds like you, the best way to keep your motivation up is to ensure your surroundings offer a positive and encouraging environment in which you can thrive.
In Winter, it’s easy to hibernate under a blanket and refuse to get up off the sofa (afterall, all the best TV comes out in the colder months…). But with a fresh lick of paint, and a few new decor ideas, your living space can help you start the year as you mean to go on.
