Your living room is one of the busiest rooms in the home. Whether you’re entertaining guests, playing with the kids or binge watching your latest TV show with your partner, the living room is a diverse, multi-functional room that is the beating heart of any home.
Frustratingly, because your living room is such a high-traffic area, it doesn’t take long for it to become tired, dull and no longer fill you with joy. It no longer looks inviting after a busy day at work, it’s dull and dingy after the sun goes down, and you feel the need to apologise for it when your friends come to visit. If this sounds familiar then don’t worry – by investing a little time and even less money, you can breathe new life into your living room and enjoy it once again. Read on to find out more.
Add Some Memories
The photos on your mantelpiece probably fill you with joy, but perhaps the frames are looking a little dated, or take up too much room? Photos can quickly become tired and dull, which is why adding some new memories into your living room can inject a new lease of life into the proceedings. Start by choosing your favourite memories from your digital devices and have them transferred onto metal canvas prints. With a high gloss finish and razor-sharp image quality, these eye-catching prints will update your tired living space within seconds.
You don’t have to worry about your walls either, as each print comes with a free hanging kit that ensures your HD metal print hangs perfectly.
Update Your Lighting Fixtures
Have you ever replaced the lighting fixtures in your living room? Whether you have an overhead bulb, wall sconces or an arrangement of lamps, updating these fixtures can quickly inject some life into your living room. Whether you want to choose something sleek and modern that compliments the theme of your living room, or something subtle and minimal that doesn’t detract from the rest of the room. Updating your lighting fixtures is a simple but effective way to breathe new life into your living space.
Add Some Wall Moulding
This trend is seeing a surge in popularity at the moment, simply because it looks great and is incredibly easy to complete! Adding moulding to your living room walls gives the room distinctive details and the features of a traditional parlour space. Raised wall moulding with individual panels requires patience and a positive approach to DIY, but the finished results are worth it!
Update Your Current Furniture
If your budget is a major factor when it comes to updating your living space, then don’t worry. You can still inject some new life and update your living space without breaking the bank. If your furniture, e.g., side tables, coffee table, bookcase, media centre etc is looking a little tired, then why not give them a lick of paint? Breathing new life into your old furniture can instantly transform your living room.
Whether you have an endless budget or a modest one, you’ll find that these tips can help you update your living room and breathe new life into the heart of your home.
