What Counts As Traditional?

The traditional living room design is the default: couches and chairs organized around a central table, all oriented toward a TV. There are also typically side tables with lamps, and often artificial lighting as well.

There’s no single color profile that makes up the traditional living room design, but for most people, it’s a hodgepodge of whites and beiges. If you’re looking to add a twist to your traditional living room, try adding a splash of color via a throw pillow on the couch or integrating a brightly colored ottoman.

The traditional living room is versatile in that it’s made for individual comfort as well as entertaining others, but making a standout traditional living room can be tough.

Making The Most Out Of A Traditional Design

The traditional living room tends to live up to the amount of space that it’s allocated to the house. Larger traditional living rooms seem to fill up with natural light better, and offer more room for needed features like bookshelves or runner tables to populate the edges.

In general, art gets displayed wherever it’s convenient in the traditional living room, which can be either good or bad. The best way to pull of the traditional living room design is to set up certain walls with thematic pieces of artwork and direct an artificial light source at them so that they stand out no matter what.

Likewise, there should be a variety of lighting options within the traditional living room space itself to maximize the amount of comfort that people have when they use the features of the room, whether it be a bookshelf, piano, television, or desk. The contents of the traditional living room are really up to you, so long as you stay within a reasonable range of colors and light sources.

You should shy away from deeply saturated dark colors in your traditional living room design, with the exception being wood and leather—large spots of dark color catch the eye, and can interfere with the pleasant unity of a room for relaxation.
