The living room could be one of the most used rooms in a home. This is where you spend family time watching movies, talking and enjoying quality time together. With all the time spent there, your furniture and décor may be getting a bit stale. If you are looking for simple, yet effective ways to liven up your living room, here are four tips to get you started.
Livening Up Your Living Room in Four Steps
Making this change alone can turn your living room around; a curtain change is quick and dramatic. Keep your current furniture outfit in mind, but go for a color, texture or pattern that you wouldn’t normally go with. This change will get you out of your rut and give you something new to look at. Remember that hanging curtains incorrectly can ruin how your room looks; consider contacting Lagnappe Custom Interiors for professional assistance.
Throw pillows are generally inexpensive when compared to a brand new couch or entertainment center. These smaller items give you plenty of opportunity to experiment with the number of pillows you have and you can get you out of your comfort zone with patterns and colors you’re not used to.
Accessories or knick-knacks are great for adding little touches of color around your living room. Many people like to have a bowl of seashells around or hang bird cages in the corners. You can also go bigger and repaint a side table or chair; this will make it feel like a brand new item!
- Re-Arrange Furniture
If buying or repurposing furniture isn’t an option for you right now, consider re-arranging what you already have. Moving a couch to the other side of the room or changing where your book cases are can alter the flow of your room in a whole new way.
Making big or small changes to a living room can be exactly what you need to get out of a visual rut. When thinking of reviving your living room, consider buying new curtains, pillows, accessories or rearranging your furniture.
