Style of the curtain should be guided by the architecture size of the window, if the window is tall, roman style of curtains would enhance the looks. Broad windows can have two rows of curtains, one shear and other normal.
While deciding the layout of the living room one has to decide on the focal point of the room which could be a audio/video unit or the sitting layout. If one ignores this then it could lead to errors in deciding on the type of furniture and uncomfortable arrangement.
Unlike other rooms i.e. bedroom or dinning room, living room will never have large piece of furniture in the center of the room. Usually the center of the living room is open so as to allow free movement, and as the center is open the flooring in the room becomes very important so visually balanced and designed flooring can contribute to the beauty of the décor.
