Certain things should always be kept in mind while you are glancing through various living room designs. The most important thing is that the design you chose should compliment the décor of the other rooms of your house. Proper color combinations are a must while selecting your living room design. Go through magazines, websites and articles on living room designs to have certain options open. Do not rush into a decision; take your time.
If you have designed the other rooms of your house according to a theme, follow the same for your living room and select a design which matches the theme of your entire house. You can hire an interior designer to guide you with the selection and implementation process. Use their tips and focus on the style and ambience the design promises to create in your living room. Also keep in mind the lighting and the placement of your furniture while you choose the design.
