Living trends seem to be changing at a pace which is not only hard to keep up with but also impractical most of the times. I am not saying that you follow every popular trend that sets in but if you feel that your living room has started to give off an old and worn out look it is probably time to redesign your living room for a fresher look. Your living room has to be spectacular. It is the first place in your house which gives a glimpse of your lifestyle and your aesthetic sense to your guests.
When you think of redesigning there are a lot of options open to you ranging from a major makeover to simpler cost affective solutions. A complete redesign may involve a complete change in the layout of your living room like bringing in new furniture a complete change of color schemes new carpets, rugs and art effects… I mean the works, which means that you have to spend heavy.
However using a little creativity and making some changes to the existing layout you can redesign your living room for a fresher look. Here are a few simple but cost affective solutions that may come in handy:
Repaint: You will be amazed what a fresh coat of paint can do to that dull old look of your living room. Overtime paint tends to lose its original hue and gives off a dull and worn off look. Fresh paint will give a lively and brighter look to the room.
Secondly while going for a repaint you have the option of going for a different color scheme which goes well with existing furniture and fixture of your room. You might think about painting a wall different or may be an artistic texture could do the trick.
Change curtains and window blinds: Try different color combinations to find out just the right match. Changing curtains and window blinds can give your living space a new look without costing you too much. Needless to say that if you have decided to repaint a different color scheme you have to make this change as well.
Relocate: Relocation of your furniture can make tons of difference to the way your room looks like. You will have to tryout different creative ideas to come to a final decision. When relocating do keep in mind that you do not cram things up which will not restrict your moving space but won’t be much presentable either.
The final touches: You need to make some final adjustments which will add spice to the decor of your living room for a fresher look. I call them attention grabbers, you could hang some wall paintings or you could add some decorative art effects.
You can do these fine tunings as long as they blend with the overall layout and look stunningly attractive but don’t look over done.
