Redecorating your living room doesn’t have to mean a full redesign. Here are a few simple tips to help make your living room feel brand new.
Cut out the clutter
If your living room looks messy and dense, this means it is time to remove the clutter. It might be that the furniture layout you are using is not appropriate for a small space. Your focus should be on using only a few pieces of furniture and décor items. This will easily give the illusion of a larger space.
Decorate with canvas prints
You can install one large print in the middle of the room to create a focal point. If possible, keep the canvas beneath a light source to create a “wow” effect. Sometimes even the smallest improvements can make a huge difference.
Use neutral colors
Interior designers always say that neutral colors can have a dramatic effect on the appearance of your living room. Beige walls, floors, and ceilings give the impression of expanding the space as neutral hues reflect light and make the room appear bigger than it actually is. You’ll be amazed at how much larger a room will appear when the right colors, patterns and textures are used.
Accessorize the furniture
If you don’t have enough money in your budget to get a new sofa, try draping a blanket or pillows over it to instantly give it new life. Pick a few accent pillows and coordinate them with the rest of your décor. This is an affordable way to add aesthetic to a room without blowing your budget.
Install good lighting
Every time you are redecorating a room, pay close attention to the lighting. Doing this will make your space feel more elegant. Whenever possible, invest in light fixtures that will create a pleasant ambiance and give your room character.
