Over time a Living Room can begin to look tired and in need of a touch of TLC. A place where families spend a lot of time, its only natural for furniture to succumb to the wear and tear of everyday life.We understand that you may not necessarily have the time or the money to give your living room a complete makeover – instead you can make small adjustments that can give the illusion that you’ve made dramatic changes.
There is no need to spend thousands of pounds revamping your tired outdated Living Room when you can make smaller changes that will make your living space seem like new but for a fraction of the price.
Changing your colour scheme is often more trouble than it’s worth – especially when you’re not starting with a blank canvas. Giving your home a fresh coat of paint can work wonders – the space can look entirely different. Opt for lighter shades to make the room brighter, it’s amazing what a lick of white paint can do for a smaller room, the light reflects off the walls making the room feel bigger.
Purchase a Rug
If your carpet is looking tattered or your wooden floors are starting to look rather bare then it may be worth investing in a new rug. Area rugs are just a fraction of the price of what replacing your whole flooring space could amount to. A large area rug can dramatically change the look of a room, whether you’re looking for an intricate colourful design or a softer shade to brighten up wooden flooring – there are hundreds of styles covering a wide price range.
Rearrange your Furniture
Having a bit of a change around can completely transform a space. If your furniture has sat in the same position for years then switch it up and try a new layout. If your space is over crowded then take out some pieces and move them to other areas of the home – for example if you’ve got an extra arm chair then you could move it up to your bedroom. Repositioning your furniture could give you a completely new perspective on your living room – give it a go.
