Many people are in the mood right now to make some home improvements to refresh their tired and boring living spaces. If your living room is boring, it may be time for an update. It’s important to remember that redecorating doesn’t have to be expensive. Sometimes a simple swap here and there makes a big difference.
Here are just a few ways you can update and renew your living room.
Illuminate your space
Good lighting, especially natural light, does wonders for a living room. Get rid of those heavy curtains and replace them with light window drapes that let natural sunshine fill the room. Airy curtains with geometric or abstract patterns create a modern look.
Décor for the Floor
A new area rug can instantly transform your living room. Particularly in open floor plans, a rug helps define the space. Choose a rug that fits the size, layout, and design of the room. If the living room is a favorite family gathering spot, look for a durable, natural fiber rug.
Mix and Match
Swapping throw pillows and blankets is a very simple, inexpensive way to update a room. To give your living room that coveted interior design look, try mixing and matching patterns. Work in threes, and choose patterns in the same color groups.
If the main pattern has round elements, like circles or florals, opt for plaids, stripes, or boxy geometric designs for the second pattern. Add balance by spreading the patterns throughout the room.
Antique and vintage furniture add distinctive character, but you don’t have to convert your home into a museum to make an impact. Instead, find one special piece. For example, a mid-century credenza, reclaimed-wood coffee table, or an antique grandfather clock, can give a room a whole new feel.
