Bringing Luxury To Your Living Room With The Best Delhi-NCR Home Interior Designers
Your living room is one of the most lived-in rooms of the house. It is where you hang out and de-stress. It is where you probably read, watch TV and entertain. It also happens to be the first room your guests see upon entering your house.
We at Mansionly believe that a living room should reflect the owner’s taste and personality. It should be comfortable and functional yet make a lasting impression.
According to us, every new season brings with it a new reason to re-do the house, and what’s better than working with best Delhi-NCR home interior designers to ensure this?
This is the time to steer away from the ordinary and add that ‘luxe’ effect to the most adored room of your house. To make your living room as luxurious as it should be, Mansionly designers have pulled together a list of handy tips for you. Check them out:
1) Pick a theme keeping in mind the season
Red and shades of blue are common winter colours. But you don’t need to blindly follow the basics. Add a little twist to the colour scheme of the room and opt for metallics. Use striking bronze and gold furnishings for a contemporary take on your living room.
Paint one of the walls of the room in teal and decorate the entire space with complementing silver decor items to create a calming aura. If you plan to go ahead with a red feature wall, fire up the place with metallic green and brown for an earthy decor, that will also bring some warmth to the space.
It may be all dull and gloomy outside, but your living room can still sparkle and shine. With the best Delhi-NCR home interiors, the extremes of weather will never bog you down.
2) Purchase smart and sleek furniture
Customising furniture may not be your first choice, but it certainly can bring out your personality as a homeowner. Designing a gorgeous living room that reflects your style and aesthetics is tough but with carefully curated pieces and the support of the best Delhi-NCR home interior designers, you can make an impact.

At Mansionly, our interior designers are constantly encouraging homeowners to opt for furniture that is tailored to suit their needs. It could be a storage shelf or an ottoman – if it makes your room look spacious and beautiful, go for it.
3) Choose warmer yet beautiful lighting
White CFL bulbs may make a space look really bright, but the light they exude is rather harsh. Yellow lights, on the other hand, are warm and welcoming. And that’s why they make such a fantastic addition to the living room decor.
The best designers can help decorate your space with the right lighting and colour effects. It will not just instill a sense of easy sophistication within the living space, but also bring warmth to it. But if you want to continue with white lights, choose a lampshade or a pair of sconces that softens the rays exuding from the bulbs.
The right light fixtures can make all the difference in the living room. Take your pick wisely.
4) Get set on DIY dried floral arrangements
If you don’t fancy changing the flower vases in your home with fresh blooms, then it is best to add a dose of whimsy to the living room with dried floral arrangements. Seriously – you don’t have to be in love with flowers to experiment with dried florals.
Create your own arrangements with dried flowers, twigs, pine cones and leaves for your living room. You can use this arrangement as a centerpiece, to accentuate a corner space or to give your shelf a new look.
5) Don’t ignore the floor space
Perk up the floor with an area rug or a carpet. There is no dearth of shapes, colours and textures when it comes to choosing the right floor decor. Purchase one that screams “luxury”. What’s better than a plush carpet for the living room?

If the decor of your living room is in grey, choose a rug or carpet in a darker colour such as crimson or navy blue. Use a contrasting decor scheme. Let the floor look inviting and warm to your guests. If need be, take assistance from the best Delhi-NCR home interior designers.
6) Furnish a single wall of the room nicely
There’s a lot you can do on the walls to make your living room more luxurious. Hang a huge wall painting. It could feature any motif or element that is your favourite. If you want to put up a winter-inspired accent such as a reindeer head, go for it.
Hanging a cluster of small artworks on the wall is also a good idea. Follow the “rule of three” and arrange three artworks together. The theory is odd numbers are more dynamic than even numbers. Therefore, please make sure you group the artworks in groups of threes, fives, sevens or nines.
Alternatively, paste a wallpaper in your living room if you want a quick fix. Pick something that is textured, has a polished finish or features some sort of visual art – whatever you feel is pretty and complements the rest of your living room decor.
What to do post living room decoration
After the decoration of the living room comes maintenance. Don’t you worry – it isn’t as difficult as it sounds. We understand that a lot goes on in a living room. Hence, it is obviously a bit challenging to keep that part of the house spic and span; and we will help you keep it that way.
Check out the following handy tips:
1) Put double duty furniture to good use
Pick out coffee and side tables with a lower shelf. You can spread out your stuff when it’s just you and your family. But when you are entertaining guests, stack everything neatly on the lower shelves. A storage ottoman is a good idea to tuck away magazines, media, and even shoes often found scattered in the room.
2) Use decorative baskets and trays for smart stacking
If you want a neater living room, use baskets. Messy-looking items and personal documents can straight away find themselves kept in those baskets. It is a smart tactic to de-clutter quickly.
Please make sure that you have some idea about the size of the baskets you require for your living room.
For example: A coffee table strewn with newspapers or magazines in the living room obviously looks untidy. Therefore dedicate one generously sized basket to house periodicals and dailies. Remove the ones that don’t fit in the basket or are outdated.
Trays are another good option to keep things like keys and unopened mails. A basket may come in the line of vision especially if you haven’t put in much thought while purchasing it. But such is not the case with a tray.
If you have media in your living room, keep your remotes in a tray. They are visibly less intrusive and still serve the purpose of de-cluttering the room.
3) Create minimalistic areas in the room
If you believe in the decor mantra of “less is more”, then minimalism is the way for you. Carve out small areas in the room that are clean. Seriously – don’t put any furniture piece or decorate it whatsoever.
Empty corners can go a long way in keeping the whole space cleaner. Try to clear out a few spots on your bookshelf or the mantel. Don’t display too many décor elements on it. Showcase a few artistically arranged items for the right effect.
4) Do a weekly deep clean
Cleaning the house is a routine task in India – especially Delhi/NCR. With all that construction going on, the houses in these areas are notably dustry. Therefore, it is highly unlikely that you would ignore mopping and dusting the room every day. However, don’t forget to sweep the corners, clean the windows and vacuum spots you can’t reach or tend to ignore otherwise.
Another great idea is to fix a day for living room cleaning. While you’re already tidying up the space every other morning, this should be the day where you leave no corner untouched.
5) Position a shoe rack at the entrance
If you are one of those who kicks off his or her shoes the minute you get home, then you need to place a shoe rack right at the entrance of the house. Not every household would consider that to be an ideal place to keep shoes but if it works for you, then invest in a furniture piece that is sturdy, space saving and easy to maintain.
6) Change the linen periodically
A living room typically comprises of different kinds of linen such as drapes, cushion covers, carpets, shelf covers, and more. While changing the linen is not possible on a weekly basis, make sure you do so every three months or so.
This will not only keep the room fresh and neat but also lend the design scheme of the space a fun and easy uplift.
