When’s the last time you gave your living room a facelift? If your home’s living room setup has been the same since you moved in ten years ago, maybe it’s time for a change. Some types of updates are big, but even a small update can make a difference. Here are some of the best ways to update your living room.
Add a Coat of Paint
If something about your space has always seemed a little off or boring to you, consider painting your walls. A paint job is an inexpensive update that can make a world of difference. Paint adds color to a room, transforming the room’s entire atmosphere by making it seem lighter or darker. You can also try painting your window trim or the furniture in your living room to achieve a similar effect.
Reduce Clutter and Stay Organized
In any room of the house, clutter is an eyesore. Because the living room is where the family typically hangs out, clutter accumulates more quickly there than in other rooms. Therefore, one of the best ways to update your living room is to create an organizational system that will combat clutter. Add bookshelves to hold books, magazines, and decorations, and use bins, baskets, and shelves to keep everything else organized and out of sight.
Update Your Decorations
The decorations in your home put your personality and sense of style on display. If the decorations in your living room no longer fit your sense of style or the function of the room, rearrange them or replace them with new decorations. Rugs, throw pillows, lampshades, wall art, and knick-knacks are just a few of the features that you can update in your living room.
Consider Your Furniture
The most important part of your living room arrangement is furniture. To give your living room a fresh look, rearrange the setup of your current furniture and change out pieces that no longer work with the style of the room. Every living room should be furnished with a couch, comfortable chairs, and a coffee table. If you have a TV in your living room, add a solid wood media console to give it a sturdy place to rest and to give you more living room storage space.
