We’ve all been there. We look around our living room and realize it doesn’t have the same style and flare that it once had. Well, fear not! Our team of designers have come up with some helpful tips for turning your living
room from drab to fab!
Make a plan. Before you start your room revamp, think about all the ways you use your living room. Do you watch TV there? Do you curl up with a good book? Do you need extra seating for family get-togethers? What pieces of furniture do you love? And, what can you live without? Consider everything and build a plan around how the space can best serve your needs.
Declutter. Cleaning up and storing unnecessary clutter and knickknacks can free up a lot of space in your living room. Want to keep your favorite items on display? Try grouping items on one shelf or tabletop. A grouping of three items is always most appealing to the eye.
Find the focal point. When picking the anchor piece of the room, be it a sectional or a sofa, it’s important to remember longevity and durability...and that goes for style too! Pick a versatile upholstery fabric for your sofa or sectional like neutral gray, soft cream, taupe, or brown. Infuse your personality and style by adding a splash of color with a patterned accent chair and throw pillows!
Paint. A fresh coat of paint can really transform a room. Let the paint color be the perfect backdrop for your furniture. Remember to choose a paint color AFTER you find the right furniture. It is much easier to match paint to fabrics or new furniture than vice versa.
Most importantly, accessorize. Even if you’re not looking for a whole living room revamp, changing room accessories can be the best way to add new life to your space. Try hanging a mirror to bring in more natural light. Accent your sofa with new pillows and a throw. Use an area rug to complete the look.
With these helpful tips, you can revamp your living room in no time!
