Is your living room looking a little dull and dreary? If so, you might want to think about making some upgrades and completing a redesign in this area of your home. By doing this, you can learn to love your living room once more and make sure it’s the perfect place for entertaining guests, enjoying the summer or simply watching TV with the family. Here are a few fantastic possibilities to spruce up your living area.
Brighten Up Those Plain Walls
You can start by adding something to those boring basic walls in your living room. If you don’t feel like painting the room a brand new colour, you can think about adding some wall decals. Wall decals are a great, easy way to decorate and if you’re on a budget, you’ll also be pleased to hear that they are cheap too. Indeed, you can pick up a few different decals for a couple dollars each. They come in lots of different styles from 3D effects to pictures like the Disney Castle! This Insta has gorgeous examples of the type of decal we’re talking about:
As the mastermind behind this ultra-chic space @melissaennisdesign says, “The calm before the kids…” Ha! We know the feeling. A gorgeous design offset by our Warm Grey Play decal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thesearemyurbanwalls #walldecor #wallsticker #walldecal #walldecals #roomdecor #roominspo #decor #homedecor #interiorinspo #interiordesign #interiordecor #homedecor #decals #housedecor #inspo #wallinspo #decorinspo #home #wallpaper #interiors #decal #inspiration #interiordecorating #stickers #getthelook #designinspo #interiordesigner #decorating #walldesign
Alternatively, if you want to spend a little more, you can consider purchasing some modern art. Prints of modern art are cheaper than you think and will give your living area a contemporary appeal.
Bye Bye Beige And Brown
Next, let’s think about that furniture. When you buy a home, it’s typical to invest in cheap furniture because you spent so much on the property. This can leave you with chairs and sofas that are plain, boring and perhaps a little ugly. If that’s the case, you should think about throwing these out or at least moving them out of your front room. Instead, you can opt for furniture that is a little more stylish. If you’re wondering how to buy furniture, you should check out sites online because you can discover some great discounts. This is another way to keep a stylish redesign well within your budget.
Of course, if you don’t have a lot of money in your budget, there is another option. Purchase some throws to cover your furniture and completely restyle them without paying for an upgrade.
Futuristic? Fancy That
How about adding style features that look a tad more futuristic? If you’re interested in contemporary decor ideas, we suggest adding an artificial electric fireplace to one of your living room walls. These can be built into the wall and will look absolutely stunning. Some can even produce the sounds of a real wooden fire and look very convincing indeed!
Alternatively, how about just investing in some fresh tech for your living room. These days, TVs are like works of art. They can look fantastic, particularly if you mount them on your wall. Slim enough to be mistaken for a beautiful modern picture frame, a new 4K TV could be perfect positioned over your new fireplace.
Dress Up The Windows
Last but not least, consider adding a touch more appeal to your windows in the living room. Add lights or some accessories to the window sill, and you will immediately give your room some much-needed character.
