Living Room Design Elements for a Restful & Cozy Space

Your living room should be a place for relaxation and comfort. It’s a space where you can kick back and escape the stresses of daily life. When designing your living room, it’s important to make sure that it has all the elements necessary to create a cozy and restful environment. In this blog post, we’ll discuss some of the most important design elements to consider when creating your perfect living room!

CONSTRUCTION & FINISHING ELEMENTS

  • Highlight Historic Architecture – Renovating a historic Tampa home? Preserve period architecture such as millwork and paneling and complement it with more contemporary furnishings. The two work together to create a unique, inviting space you and your guests will enjoy. 
  • Add Textured Paneling to the walls – Shiplap and Board & Batten are great examples of what can be used to add texture to your living room walls. Many homeowners do this to create that nostalgic, old-Florida look.
  • Incorporate Natural Wood Elements – For larger more open rooms where you want to be more informal and relaxed, consider installing large beams, plank walls, or raw oak floors for that organic element that reminds you of nature.
  • Opt for Deep, Dark-hued Walls – Though all-white walls are still extremely popular, deep, dark-hued interiors are on the rise. Dark walls, or even just a dark accent wall, create a sense of intimacy. While it can seem like dark paint in a living room would feel heavy or dim, it can be quite the opposite! In a room where the walls are dark, but the trim is light, the contrast brings focus to the light from the windows. The room will still feel airy and bright.
  • Don’t Forget About Lighting Soft, ambient lighting will help to create a warm and comfortable atmosphere in your living room. In addition to recessed lighting that you’ve likely had a licensed Tampa Bay contractor or electrician install, consider additional lighting sources such as candles, table lamps, and floor lamps to increase the coziness factor.

INTERIOR DESIGN ELEMENTS

  • Choose the Right Furniture One of the most important details of a cozy living room is the furniture! You want to make sure that you have comfortable seating that you can sink into after a long day. A sizeable sofa or sectional, armchairs, and ottomans are all great options. Another important element to consider is your coffee table. You want to make sure that it is the perfect height for your seating area and that it has enough surface area for you to put your feet up or set down a drink.
  • Make Your Fireplace the Focal Point – if you’re fortunate enough to have a fireplace in your living room, make it stand out! If it’s outdated, give it a fresh coat of paint, or revamp it entirely. A fire on those rare but much anticipated cold Florida evenings will certainly achieve those warm and fuzzy feelings.
  • Make the Space Your Own Fill the room with framed pictures of family and friends, beloved artwork, throw blankets and accent pillows to match your taste, and some live plants for a little greenery. Adding a personal touch will make it the coziest, most used room in the house.

So, there you have it! These are just a few design elements to consider when creating a cozy and restful living room. By incorporating some of these elements into your design, the result will be a living space that you’ll love coming home to everyday.

They were very professional. Quoted us a time frame and they were exact on the time frame. The were very clean as they cleaned up every night. Any questions I had they were very helpful. Overall a great experience. We plan on using them again if we decide to redo our bathrooms. The kitchen came out very nice and we are very happy with it.

This company is great. They did an awesome job on our remodel. The quality of work surpasses everything. All project hiccups were professionally handled and solutions came out better than planned. Jason Rossi and his lead foreman on our job Brian Smith are very professional. Brian provided a wealth of knowledge in regards to our entire first floor remodel project. Brian Smith is trustworthy and the quality of his work is impeccable. Job well done JRossi Construction!!

The work quality was outstanding, the crew friendly and a delight to work with, and they cleaned up after themselves and left the place in great shape! When I remodel my other unit, there is no doubt that Rossi Construction will be doing the work there also. I had an issue with the door quality of the cabinets and Rossi and his crew met with myself, and the Cabinet Representative immediately, and the issue was resolved to My Satisfaction. You can easily tell that Customer Satisfaction is what everyone in the organization is focused on. Great Job and thanks again, Ed.

Rossi just remodeled our hall bathroom and kitchen. They are incredibly skilled craftsmen who use the best products. We had two different men lead each project and they were both wonderfully skilled (cabinetry, tile, hardware installation, electric, plumbing, painting, etc.). They are honest, hardworking, on schedule, clean up after themselves, and fix problems. We highly recommend them.

Rossi Construction just finished renovating our veterinary hospital. The entire process from start to finish was flawless. Jason was the only contractor who looked at our space and was able to get a rough quote to us within 24 hours. Everything ran on schedule and within budget, and the final product was beautiful. Our project supervisor was incredibly knowledgeable and easy to work with. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for construction work in the Tampa area.

The guys from Rossi do great work. We did a complete remodel of two levels of our house (we have a split level). The work included a full redesign of the master suite (took space from the bedroom to make a bigger bathroom and add a walk-in closet, also changed configuration of some windows), full redesign of main level (kitchen, living, and dining space) that included floating a sunken floor and removing walls to open the space, and cosmetic updates to the rest of the bedrooms (new doors, trim, paint, etc.). Only small issues were due to subcontractors, and Rossi made sure everything was brought up to expectation. We're super happy with the result and would not hesitate to use them on future projects.

I would highly recommend Rossi construction. Jason and his employees were very professional, very conscientious, and definitely went the extra mile to make sure I was happy with the project. If I emailed questions, they were promptly answered. I believe the pricing on the project was very fair. I am recommending them to all my friends. It was a great experience working with this contractor. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.

Overall, the remodel went quite well. The workmanship is very good.The crew was very punctual and professional. I found some minor issues that I pointed out to them, and they resolved them to our satisfaction. They could have done a better job with drop cloths in the hallways. There was a fair amount of joint compound that got tracked around on the carpet, and some of the dirt & debris got ground into the carpet. However, I consider this to be a minor issue, and would definitely consider using them again.
