Changing the Look of Your Living Room

~ This is a featured post.~

It’s the room that your family relaxes in and the space in which you entertain your guests — your living room, then, should be as comfortable, appealing, and atmospheric as it can possibly be. To ensure this is the case, especially if yours is very much stuck in the past, it might be time for you to change the look of your living room.

For cost-effective advice on how to update your home’s main living area, be sure to check out the advice below. 

De-clutter the space
If you continue to treat your living room like a dumping ground for all of your worldly belongings, sooner rather than later, the area will feel cramped, muddled, smaller and, worst of all, uncomfortable. To fight this plight, you have to resolve to de-clutter the space… and you have to be ruthless when you do so. None of this ‘I might use it again’ when you have absolutely no intention of using it again — if something doesn’t benefit you and your family right now, sling it. This is the only way you are going to inject your living room with the spaciousness it needs to transform back into the comfortable living area you need it to be. 

Let there be light
Lighting could do wonders for you in your bid to change the look of your living room. Preferably, you should let as much natural light as possible rain in through your windows, as this will make your living room appear to be much larger than it actually is. At the very least, you should ensure that your electrics are wired up correctly and that all the lights are working. Quite simply, nobody is going to want to spend time in your living if they cannot see what they are doing or who they are speaking to!

Change your color scheme
If you wish to give your living room’s look a complete overhaul, then you should seriously consider changing its color scheme.

In this instance, there can be no half measures — either go all in, or don’t go in at all. Don’t just invest in a few matching ornaments, for example, and instead change absolutely everything about your color scheme. Lay your floor with white oak, such as that made available at, and buy white curtains and furniture that match it. By taking this kind of action, your living room will be transformed to the point where it will be all but unrecognizable.

Change your seating arrangement
Changing your seating arrangement is a simple yet effective way to change your living room’s look.

When it comes to re-planning the layout of your seats, you must keep the focal point of the room (which is, more than likely, your TV) in mind at all times. No matter how pretty your new layout may be, if visitors to your home have to strain to see something or talk to someone, it will constitute as a fail.
The next time you feel the urge to change the look of your living room, be sure to remember all of the above advice.
