Simple Styling For A Modern Living Room

Wednesday, October 28, 2015

Of all the rooms in our homes, the living room is the most used. It is where we go to relax after a long day at work, socialise with friends, and spend quality time with our loved ones. As we spend so much time in our living rooms, it’s important that they are places that make us feel happy and relaxed.

You most probably loved your living room when you first designed it. However, if it has been decorated in the same way for a couple of years, you might now be feeling a little bored of the space. While you might not like your living room, you might be reluctant to redesign it. This is probably because, not only can decorating be expensive, but also time-consuming.

However, that doesn’t have to be the case. To give your living room a new lease of life, you don’t need to makeover the entire room or open a can of paint. All you need to do is make a few simple updates, and you can significantly change the look and feel of the room.

Get new flooring

One of the easiest ways you can make a big difference to the look of your living room is by getting new flooring. The best thing about this is that swapping your old flooring for a newer design, doesn’t have to be time-consuming or expensive.

Spend some time choosing from the different carpets and flooring on offer, select your choice, order it, and hire a fitter to lay it for you. The best option for this is getting your new flooring laid while you are out of the house, so it as undisruptive as possible to your day.

Add an area rug

If getting new flooring isn’t within your price range, adding a stylish area rug can have a big impact on your living room. Adding an area rug can completely change the look of your living room, adding style and colour to the space.

A fantastic way to give any room a new lease of life is by adding splashes of colour and pattern, as these help to elevate the area. One of the easiest ways to do this - without painting, that is, is by investing in a rug. Even if your living room is fully carpeted, adding a rug can make a big difference to the room’s style.

Pop lots of pillows and throws on the sofa

For a quick living room update, investing in a new sofa probably isn’t part of the plan. However, you can give it a style boost, by adding lots of throws and pillows to it. These should match the colour scheme of the room, but should be in various prints and patterns. [When it comes to adding style, mixing and matching prints and patterns is a fantastic way to do this.]

As well as opting for pillows and throws in varying prints, also look out for designs in different textures. If you want to make the sofa itself, more stylish, consider swapping the pillow cushions that came with it, for something more unique.

Invest in a coffee table

Simply be adding a new coffee table to your living room, you can make a big difference to the feel of the space. You may not realise it, but when it comes to decor, a piece of furniture, can be a fantastic statement piece.

Updating your living room doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming, and doesn’t have to include a tin of paint, either. The key is to mix up the design of the room, giving it a fresh feel.
