New house, empty house. The space to be filled is almost finished but she has no idea how to furnish the living room wall. Don’t panic, the solution is only one: organization.
Among inspirations, images, and photos, in this guide, you will find solutions to fill one or more walls and suggestions for decorating, equipping, or enhancing empty or bare walls.
Fill the living room walls: furnish or decorate?
It may seem trivial, but when it comes time to organize the living area, the priority is undoubtedly the furniture. Once the furnishings have been chosen, and even more so when they are arranged in the space, the living room will begin to take on the appearance of a welcoming and functional place, ready to be lived.
The first considerations are simple: what kind of wall do you have in the living room? And would you like to furnish an entire wall or decorate only a part of it?
Furnish a whole wall
To fill the entire wall you have to take into account two factors: the length of the wall and the width of the living room . Remember that the less is more rule is always valid, so overdoing the furniture becomes counterproductive.
Greenlight instead to minimal solutions, if you like the genre. Alternating full and empty spaces, asymmetries, and deconstructed compositions are useful for enhancing irregular walls and making the environment dynamic.
Furnish the wall behind the sofa
Once you have chosen the sofa, it is good to decide how to complete the rear wall. There are two possible situations: the sofa is leaning against the wall, so you will have to choose what to put on it; the sofa is in the center of the room, so you’ll have to think about what to put behind it.
In both cases, remember to leave enough space to not hinder the passage and to be able to sit comfortably on the sofa.
Furnish two walls in the living room
The living room is large, so why not occupy two neighboring walls? If you want to aim for a continuity effect, play on several fronts. Fill adjacent walls to give a sense of harmony, choose similar or identical finishes to ensure aesthetic consistency.
Corner of the living room
The smaller the living room, the more essential it becomes to exploit every available corner, in the true sense of the word. Unused corners are a veritable mine of centimeters to be exploited with space-saving solutions, suspended furniture, and accessories with reduced dimensions or that develop in height.
Furnishing ideas: which furniture to choose?
You have identified what to furnish, you just have to decide how to furnish the walls of the living room.
There are two ways: you can orient yourself on suspended furniture, which reflects the modern trend, or opt for furniture on feet or resting on the ground, no less appealing in terms of aesthetics.
Furniture to hang in the living room
There are at least three good reasons to choose suspended living room furniture. They offer a valid alternative to the classic equipped wall, do not take up floor space (some slim solutions are really smart), and are super, super modern.
Wall panels and TV stands
The TV cabinets find their natural habitat in the living room. Indispensable to make the environment convivial, over the years they have become real furnishing objects with which to embellish and set up a wall in the living area.
The slim or container models, then, make functionality their ace in the hole. Shallow, thin, small in size, they adapt perfectly to even the smallest walls.
If you have many books but there is little space, the winning idea is only one: suspended bookcases. In a reading corner, near the TV or next to an armchair, they furnish even the bareest walls with style, thanks to a more or less contemporary design that elects them to queen of the living room.
Do you need to fill a high and narrow portion of the wall? Try vertical hanging bookcases.
Suspended cubes and containers
Contain, rearrange, hide. Wall units and suspended containers are the allies of mini living rooms, where space is reduced to a minimum. We like the idea that they furnish without exaggerating, that they conceal accessories without attracting attention.
An excellent alternative is the cubes, which together with the suspended shelves are perfect for creating personalized and colorful compositions.
Furnish with equipped walls (and more)
It goes without saying: the equipped walls are born to furnish… the walls.
Beyond pure logic, the advantage of choosing a living room composition lies in the extreme customization of the solutions, to be modulated on the available space – no matter how small or long the wall is.
Furnishing the living room without an equipped wall: is it possible?
Yes, of course, you can. There are excellent and very valid alternatives to compositions for the living room wall, and I don’t necessarily refer to suspended furniture. Between bookcases, sideboards, grandmother’s sideboards, and transformable furnishings, the solutions are practically endless. Here are some ideas.
