Living room paint ideas have the potential to completely transform both the look and feel of this important space within the home. This is a room that often has to function in many different ways — as somewhere to welcome guests into your home, to gather together as a family or maybe simply to kick back and relax after a long day. 

Even though your room layout will, to a degree, dictate how successful this space is at fulfilling all these requirements, so too will the way it is decorated.
