Designers Anije Cho and Amanda Amato told Good Housekeeping how making changes can help you unwind after a long day at work or entertainment.

While you should always choose colors that you’re drawn to, the experts recommend a variety of palettes in a living room, ranging from warm neutrals to fresh gray tones.

The colors, layout and decor of the room should be tailored to the main purpose of the area as a literal gathering space.

The balance of the five elements of earth, wood, fire, metal and water is also crucial in creating a harmonious environment.

Amato from AMA Designs & Interiors recommends bold colors if you have a lot of visitors and relaxing tones for people who lead a quieter lifestyle.

It’s not a bad idea to let the sofa take over whenever possible.

Avoid having the back of your sofa facing the entrance of your living room, as an ideal furniture arrangement is one where you can see the sofa as you approach the room.

If your design strategy doesn’t allow for this arrangement, place a short console table behind your sofa to display beautiful table lamps, accessories, or a water feature.

Arranging furniture and artwork around your fireplace for a warm and welcoming atmosphere is also a good rule of thumb, as the safe haven can also be the focal point of the living room.

When it comes to lighting, balance is certainly key.

A dimly lit room can certainly dampen your mood, but an overly bright room can be unsettling.

“The best solution is to have different types of fixtures, like low table lamps for mood lighting, along with recessed ceiling lights for overall lighting,” says Reiko Gomez of Reiko Design, who favors layers and dimmer switches whenever possible.

Creating a seamless sense of flow is vital in the world of feng shui.

Your arrangement is probably too narrow if you have to twist and turn to get past pieces of furniture or squeeze between chairs to avoid tripping.

You should consider opening up your space a bit more and removing a few pieces of furniture.

“The sentence [living room] indicates it’s a residential location,” designer Cho explained, per Good Housekeeping.

She added, “Often closer to the front door, it’s more of a public space in your home than the bedroom or office, so the colors and layout should reflect that.”

Feng Shui living room recommendations also include using plants for decoration, opening windows, minimizing clutter, and being mindful of mirrors and wall art.

Stick to calm prints like beach photos and hang them an inch higher than usual, as placing them too low can spoil your mood.

A certain arrangement of the furniture is also important when it comes to staging the living room in the right way.
