Your living room is where you usually receive your guests. This is why it should always leave a good impression. These are five things that can help you redecorate your living room if it badly needs an upgrade:
Consider installing motorized blinds on your windows
A motorized blind is among the most useful addition to your home. They are convenient and easy to use and gives you more privacy. Installing custom motorized blinds make things more efficient for the people using the space. Is the sun too bright? Just pick up the remote to control the amount of light coming in. You can do the reverse if it gets too dark, all without getting up to adjust your blinds.
Be consistent with your style
Your room should have a cohesive look. Before you start redecorating, take all the time you need to decide on the design, color palette, and material you will use. Consistency is something that you should strive for so that it will look great and functional.
You don’t necessarily need to do a remodeling job if you don’t have the budget for it. Instead go for simple and quick changes, like new window treatments, adding accent pieces, or rearranging furniture.
Do not hesitate to reuse furniture
It is understandable if you do not have the money to buy new furniture for your living room. If you have old furniture that would belong well to the current design and style that you will be going for, you should still use it. A lot of the problems with furniture is with the proper arrangement. Place your sofa and coffee table around a focal point, like the fireplace or a big window. And don’t forget about the traffic flow, people should be able to move around without bumping into something.
Hang art on your walls
Bring elegance into your living room by hanging art pieces on your walls. Find a painting that you really like that can be a conversation starter for you and your guests. An art piece also adds a sense of symmetry and pops of color in a space.
As an alternative to paintings, hire an artist to create a mural on your wall. Or display a dramatic sculpture that will get the attention of your guests.
Be meticulous with the paint colors
The colors you will choose must be consistent with the aesthetic you are going for. Painting the walls is relatively easy and it does not take a lot of money. But choosing the right hue is always the difficult part; the color should tie up the entire space. You can pick a clue from one of your accent pieces and make that your main color. Don’t forget to check the color wheel for the complementing hues.
Decorating your living room is easy if you have the eye for design. Simple changes can do a lot to improve your space. But if you do not, you can at least follow the tips above or hire someone to do it for you.
