“As we evolve, our homes should too”
While you spend a lot of time in your living room, there are many things we want to change over time and give it a makeover. The living room being the focal point of any house, here are some astute ideas to give your living room a simple yet alluring makeover.
Let’s get started…..
1. Add a rug-
The rug shouldn’t be very small and it shouldn’t be very large. It should simply cover the edges of your seating area, doing so will make the room appear larger. One can opt for square, rectangular or circular rugs, however placing a circular rug can be a little tricky. Some of the commonly used rug sizes are 3′ x 5′ , 4′ x 6′ , 4′ x 8′ , 6′ x 9′ , 5′ x 8′ , 4′ x 4′ , 6′ x 6′ , 8′ x 8′ .
Picking a rug color can be difficult so here is some quick help. You should not try and match the color of the room to the rug, just take the hues of the room while choosing the rug. If the furniture is a solid color without a pattern you can opt for a patterned rug or vice versa. If you are unsure about the color, pattern, and print, stick to a neutral color rug, with a soft and muted pattern.
There are different types of rugs available- wool, synthetic, viscose, silk, etc. Synthetics are a little easier on the pockets compared to wool and silk. Every material comes with its features so it’s best to see, feel, and decide.
2. Introduce Accent chair or poufs-
3. Pop some throw cushions –
4. Let the artwork talk –
5. Bring in some light with a floor lamp –
6. Get the freshness of some greens-
How can a room be complete without adding the freshness of some greens? Apart from looking aesthetically pleasing and bringing natural beauty to space, it has a lot of additional benefits too which every one of us is aware of. It helps clean air and provides oxygen, even if you don’t see a plant’s presence, seeing a plant subconsciously makes you feel calm and relaxed.
you can visit your local nursery and talk to a plant specialist to find out which is better, one can go for air plants, succulents, and regular house plants.
7. Style it up with accessories-
Last but not the least, add accessories. Accessories are a powerful tool to pull out textures, hues, patterns, and forms, they are more than just objects. They are functional in their forms- vases, antiques, books, bowls. They help put everything together and make it look complete.
Try not to spread it out too much as it lowers its visual impact, you can style up your furniture pieces with a cluster of accessories or pair them up with greens placed well together on the center table, side table, console, or T.V unit.
That’s all you need to do to give a quick makeover to your living room. Hope you guys liked it, do share it with your friends, and stay tuned for more.
