Does your living room need a make-over? Well, it might do if you have not made any change in the furniture or the outlook for more than 5 years. Just like a typical American household, most of us spend the majority of the time in the living room, from watching home-made movies to eating dinner together with the family, it is the perfect spot in the home.
But unfortunately, we tend to ignore the fact that like any other part of the home, it needs changes too – maybe the furniture has become old or the wall paint is tearing off. Here are a few of the ways by which you can give your living room a very lively feeling.
Take a critical look at the furniture in your living room, when was the last time it was polished or replaced? If you have wooden furniture, check the color of the wood – does it still have a shine? If the budget allows, start searching for new furniture, if not – then go for a wooden polish or changing the covers of the sofas. This will give your living room a new look. If you have bulky furniture, it’s time to sell it and go for a lighter, modern furniture. There will be more space and your living room will give a very refreshed look.
A dark or gloomy ambiance in your living room will not only make it look small but also you’ll feel dull and sad for no reason. Check out the lighting in living room, do you have enough light bulbs? Is the room completely lit? With lightning done right, your living room will feel more welcoming and of course bright.
Is the cupboard, the corner tables and even the center table full with decoration pieces or pictures of the family? It’s time to get rid of a few of them, you don’t have to sell them – place it some other part of the home. The less number of objects on the tables and in the cupboard will make your living room more space.
The paint on the wall has more difference in the overall look of the living room than anything else. If you have less space and walls are painted in a dark shade, this will make it look smaller. Go for a light, bright color which appeals the eye. White is the best choice because it is forever. Although, this depends on you. If the paint on the walls is tearing off, you better get the painter.
Sometimes, there is more furniture placed in the living room that for people walking around comfortably. If that is the case with you, see thoroughly and take out all the items which are not serving any purpose.
Having greenery in your living room will give you a pleasant feeling. Find a vessel from home, paint it and have a little plant or two in the living room. You will see how it gives a very different and fresh look. You are going to absolutely love it, trust u
Does your living room have a painting or the walls are completely empty? Add some color to the walls, fix a painting on them. Abstract painting or modern art looks beautiful and adorn the walls. If you are a literary person, choose painting with a quote or words that inspire you.
