It’s no secret that after a few years, we grow tired of looking at the same stuff day after day. That doesn’t mean you have to constantly remodel your living room to achieve that updated look you yearn for. There are many simple steps that can totally change the way you feel about your favourite room in the house.
Even if you have a limited budget, the following ideas will give your living room a new, fresh look, allowing you to fall in love with your home all over again.
Who says the couch has to be the star of your living room? A colourful accent chair will add an element of fun, show off your personality and breathe new life into your space. Accent chairs come in a whole rainbow of styles, shades, patterns, and textures; just chose something elegant that provides comfortable seating.
If you want a chair that will stand the test of time and not just feel like a passing trend, go for this timeless and neutral coloured IDIYA Japan armchair. It will instantly bring a coastal cottage charm to your living area.
Reshuffling furniture is a surefire way to refresh any space without spending a dime. Instead of heading to the store, get a little creative with what you have. You can pull your sofa away from the wall or bring one piece of your elegant patio furniture inside.
Don’t stop there; you can relocate that framed art hanging in your bedroom to your living room or switch window treatments from room to room. This tip will definitely satisfy your need for change. And if most of your furniture looks dull after rearranging, there is no harm getting a bright colour armchair to break up the monotony and add an unexpected twist.
Lush green houseplants can help make a room feel fresh, modern, and inviting. A potted plant can make a blank corner instantly chic, while a small flowering plant can add the wow factor to your drab side tables and consoles.
Some greenery is also great at cleansing the air of certain pollutants, allowing you to breathe fresh air. Just make sure it can thrive indoors with little care and is safe for pets and children.
A statement wall is a killer way to make a massive change without investing too much time or money. By blending colour, texture, and tone, you can design an epic space that becomes the focal point of your living room. Just pick one wall, and get crafty and flashy with it.
You can paint by hand, create a photo collage wall, or trace the shape of a stencil or silhouette. If you’re worried about making a commitment you might regret, just put up wallpaper or decals. For a more trendy look, slip this fabulous Scandinavian style armchair next to the accent wall.
Finding enough storage in the living room can be tricky. But incorporating lots of nice-looking storage pieces can quickly reinvigorate the space and create extra room to stash away items that cause congestions. Go for pieces that offer as much storage potential as possible.
Think of a coffee table with drawers, floating shelves, a storage ottoman, or a chic sideboard. Use the storage to hold electronics, extension cords, cables, toys, and other household items. If your new storage piece opens up some space in the living area, tuck in this pleated IDIYA Inchon armchair.
Over the years, we accumulate many things that we don’t actually need. Go through the stuff in the living room and figure out what is taking up space and no longer adding value. Get rid of that old broken chair or that throw rug that wasn’t your style in the first place.
Remove the throw pillows that are out of fashion, sell or donate old gadgets and DVDs, and take out the magazines that are past their prime. Next, put away items that don’t belong in the room, then clean everything, including carpets, rugs, curtains, upholstery, shelves, lampshades, and ornaments.
If you’ve been noticing a widening gap between the living room you want versus the one you have, it’s time to revamp things. A simple layout shake-up, a fresh coat of paint, clever decor swaps, and trendy but inexpensive furniture will definitely make your home more lively.
