Does your living room feel bland, boring and beige? Do you find yourself dreading spending time there, simply because it doesn’t feel alive and brimming with energy? Ideally, your living space should be a room where you feel relaxed and able to recharge your batteries after a long day of whatever it is that keeps you busy.
So, if you feel as though your lounge area is uninspiring and insipid, work your way through the living room list and learn seven simple ways to spice it up.
Get a Great TV Unit
A TV unit is a must-have if you own a TV and entertainment system. For one, it’s a practical space to store your television, sound system and other entertainment possessions like CDs, DVDs and other things. But, it also makes a feature on one wall. Don’t be hesitant to opt for a bold, striking design that will stand out and highlight that wall or corner of the room.
Invest in Art
Art is a brilliant way to spice up your lounge room. Depending on your personal preferences, you can opt for either subtle, cool and subdued pieces which will still create a great feeling in the room – or you could go for bold, bright and colourful. The choice is yours.
If you haven’t typically been into art before, don’t fret. You can get Googling and browse through an entire world history of art periods and styles and find one that feels right for you and your living room.
Make Use of Lighting
The right lighting can make a difference in how a room feels. Now, you’ll have a light fitting in your ceiling, but you can use lamps strategically to create different moods and feelings. A dimmable lamp is a great idea, so you can adjust the light level to your personal preference.
Style Your Coffee Table
You should dedicate some time to styling your coffee table to create a gorgeous centrepiece for your room. Make use of vases with flowers, coasters, magazines, books and even a fabric cover for your coffee table to spice it up.
Tired Old Lounge Suite?
Are your couch and chair set worn out, faded or downright uncomfortable. A new lounge set could be just the ticket to spicing up your living space. Here’s a tip – choose a style or colour that will either complement or contrast with the other decorative elements in your living space.
Depending on the type of flooring you have, you may want to consider adding a throw rug or other floor cover for an added touch of class.
On this topic as well, if you have tired old carpets that have seen a lot of use over a lot of years, why not rip them up and lay timber flooring, which is much more elegant.
Finally, consider where you can add some simple little touches that are easy to implement and won’t break the bank. Throw cushions, small decorative objects and an essential oil diffuser are all great ideas for nice little touches.
A Chic Conclusion
To spice up your living room, get a great TV unit. Invest in some art and make use of lamps and different lighting for added atmosphere. Style your coffee table, and upgrade your lounge suite. Get a rug or two, or consider ripping up the faded old carpet. Finally, don’t neglect small little touches that can have a big impact. Follow these tips and soon you’ll have a living space you can truly enjoy.
