Is your living room in a decorating rut? Here are three tips to turn your tired space from drab to fab.
1. Take stock
Assess the room’s furniture and decor and get rid of items that do not work in the space. For instance, are there pieces that are too large for the living room? Or too small? Is there furniture that is outdated or damaged? When choosing new pieces of furniture, such as a sofa, armchair, or end table, keep the size of the room in mind. If the space is large enough, you can add in accents such as an ottoman or additional seating.
2. Get some paint
A few paint gallons can be a quick and easy way to change your space. Choose wall colors that can help set the mood of the room as well as compliment your decor. Want to create a more cozy atmosphere in your living room? Experts recommend going with warmer shades. Do you want a more modern look? Choose hues with cool undertones. You can also create an interesting design element with an accent wall.
3. Add some accessories
Perk up the color palette of your space with accent pillows and throws. It’s OK to mix and match prints but design experts recommend making sure the hues relate to the overall color scheme of the room. Wall art is another way to make a room come alive. Again, it’s important to keep the color palette in mind to ensure the artwork complements the current theme of the room. Area rugs can also help change up a space. Just make sure to choose that is proportional to the space.
