If you're not sure where to start when it comes to choosing a colour scheme for your living room, there are plenty of resources out there to help you find inspiration. Pinterest is a great place to find inspiration for living room colour schemes. Try searching for "living room colour ideas" or "colour schemes for lounge" and browse through the results for ideas that catch your eye.

Don't forget to consider the type of flooring you have in your living room when choosing a colour scheme. The colour, texture, and style of your flooring can have a significant impact on the overall look and feel of your living room, so it's important to consider it when selecting a colour scheme.
If you have wooden floors like laminate or engineered wood flooring, you may want to choose a colour scheme that complements the natural tones and textures of the wood. Warm colours like browns, oranges, and reds can bring out the warmth in the wood and create a cosy and inviting atmosphere. Alternatively, you could choose a cooler colour scheme with blues or greens to create a more modern and sophisticated look.
For living rooms with carpet, the colour and texture of the carpet can also be a great starting point for a living room colour scheme. If you have a neutral or plain-coloured carpet, you might consider a bolder and brighter colour scheme to add some visual interest to the room. Alternatively, if you’ve got a patterned or colourful carpet, you may want to choose a more subdued colour scheme to avoid clashing with the carpet
In addition to the colour of your flooring, the texture and style of your flooring can also play a role in selecting a living room colour scheme. For example, if you have a shaggy or textured carpet, you may want to choose a smooth and solid-coloured upholstery to create a contrast. If you’re even considering changing up the flooring in your living room, why not check out our best flooring for living rooms guide to help you pick the perfect new flooring to complement your style?
