Use the following living room decorating ideas to turn your living room into a warm and friendly place for everybody to gather.
Paint is one of the most inexpensive ways to redecorate any room. If you want one wall to be the focal point of the room, paint it your favorite color and then accent it with wall hangings or furniture.
Use an Area Rug
Use area rugs rather than replacing carpet. An area rug is a great way to define a conversation area.
Pictures & Mirrors
Hang pictures and mirrors that reflect your personality. Plus, when hanging a mirror, place it where it will reflect either a nice view, or an interesting architectural element of the room. Including a mirror in a room also creates the illusion of more space in a room because of the light reflecting off it.
Replacing lampshades is a low-cost way to accent a room.
If your coffee table or end tables are looking tired or scratched, then cover then with small decorative throw rugs. Or consider tiling the top of the tables with mosaic tiles or colored glass.
Rearrange the Furniture
Rearranging the furniture can give a whole new look to the layout of your room. You do not have to think square; try placing your furniture at angles.
Plants can add freshness and impact to your room’s décor. And, if placed strategically, they can hide flaws in a room.
If you do not need or love it, then sell it or give it away. By de-cluttering a space, you will not only be providing yourself with more room, but you will also be gaining a whole new look.
