Mix and Match Furnitures: Step-by-Step Guide to Make a Stylish Living Room - ASPVO Furniture

by ASPVO Home

Living room is one of the most important spaces in our home. This is where we relax ourselves, entertain with friends, and do reception to visitors. Creating a comfortable living room is not easy – we want the area to be cozy, functional, and stylish at the same time. But we do know how to start – by finding some mix and match furniture that complements each other and reflect our personalities. Here are some mix and match tips:

Step 1 - Choose a color scheme.

A color scheme can help you create a harmonious and cohesive look for your living room furniture sets. Choose a main color and two or three accent colors. Once you have some color ideas, you need to decide on a main color and a few accent colors for your color scheme. 

  • Choose your style

    Let’s begin with a style that you love. Some folks are drawn to modern decor, while others have a soft spot for traditional furniture. Industrial furniture holds its own charm, but minimalism is gaining popularity these days. It’s important to have a clear vision of your dream home before we start.

  • Select an anchor piece

    Can start by selecting a neutral color for your sofa, which will act as the centerpiece of the room. Sofas and couches are often our go-to choice for a centerpiece because they’re essential living room items. Popular colors like brown and grey are versatile and easy to match with other pieces. If you prefer colors like orange and green, it is likely to narrow your options for choose other living room furnitures.

  • Mix and match other furnitures

  • Do some add-ons

    You can also use rugs, pillows, curtains, and accessories to add more color and texture to your living room. The possibilities are endless, and the choice is yours to create a living room that truly reflects your style and personality.

No matter what colors you pick, it is a good idea to test your colors in your living room. You can use paint samples, fabric swatches, or online tools to see how the colors look in different lighting and settings. You can also compare your colors with other elements in your living room, such as the flooring, the ceiling, or the trim.

Step 2 - Mix and match styles.

Now, let’s think beyond just color. Mixing up different styles can give your living room its own special vibe. While color sets the mood, it’s really the design of the pieces that shows off your style. Don’t be afraid to play around with different looks - leather sofas with fabric chairs, wooden shelf and metal tables - it’s all about what you like. Here are some main styles to think about:

  • Modern Style

    The modern style is a popular choice due to its versatility and ability to blend seamlessly into most rooms. Characterized by its sleek and simple design, it typically features a limited color palette, offering a clean and uncluttered feel. 

  • Minimalist Style

    Minimalist furniture usually features a restrained 2-3 color scheme. This style helps to create a warm, inviting atmosphere, making any room feel more like home.

  • American Classic

    American classic furniture often features design elements such as fluted panels and white paint. Examples include furniture with a white body and wooden color base, like our white block coffee table.

  • Farmhouse Style

    Farmhouse style furniture exudes a rustic or vintage charm. Some pieces feature design elements like barn doors and crossbars, adding to the old-world feel.

  • Industrial Style

    Industrial style furniture is a fusion of heavy metal frames and rustic wooden parts. It exudes a robust feel and is known for its durability.

  • Mid-Century (Traditional) Style

    Mid-century style harks back to the designs of the 50s and 60s. While these pieces were typically handmade in the past, they are now industrially produced. Commonly seen in bureaus, most pieces feature a brownish paint finish.

Step 3 - Think about size and shape.

It might seem simple, but it can trip you up. A tiny mistake in measuring can cost you time and money. Plus, your furniture choices can really change how your living room works. So, questions must be asked before makeing a decision.

  • Will This Furniture Fit My Room?

    Your furniture needs to fit your room. So, make sure your pieces match the size of your room and leave enough space to move around. We all love big furniture, but it might not work in every space.

  • Will The Furniture Shape Go with My Other Home Decors?

    You’ll also want to think about the shape of your furniture and how the pieces work together. Mixing angles and curves might not look so great. For example, you could go for a rectangular lift top coffee table, a rectangular sofa, a rectangular TV stand, and a square end table for a neat and orderly look. Or, you could choose a round lift top coffee table, a curved sofa, a round TV stand, and a round end table for a fun and lively vibe.

There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to mixing and matching furniture pieces.

You can also use your lift top coffee table, sofa, tv stand, and end table as a canvas to display your personal items, such as books, plants, photos, art, and collectibles. The goal is to create a living room that is comfortable, functional, and reflects your style and personality.
