3 Small Changes That Will Give Your Living Room A Contemporary Twist
The living room is one area in our home that needs a little sprucing up now and then as it can get quite monotonous and become dull and boring to look at. A quick rearrangement or replacing just one odd piece of furniture is all you may need to do to give a fresh new look and feel.
With our fast-paced lives, making significant changes like changing the flooring, paint or furniture can be too much to handle. So, start with a few small changes that don’t affect your life and pocket to a great extent. Here are 3 changes that we have come up with to give your living room a contemporary twist!
Declutter and organize: Yes, it is easier said than done. But this is the first step in any makeover. Walk around your living room and make a note of all those things that you haven’t used in the past 6 months. You may have some cd’s, books, magazines, movies that are lying around on shelves collecting dust.
You may also have certain books that you love and will never discard. It’s ok. Just rearrange them neatly, so that your shelves have more breathing space in them. Also, discard all chipped or broken items. Only once you remove them, can you create space for new ones.
The addition of accent pillows and rug: Throw in a few colourful accent pillows for an instant facelift. You can also add a new rug to give a warm feeling to your living room. Adding a pop of colour to your living room with cushions, rugs, lamp shades, or flower pots can make it look brighter instantly.
Multipurpose cabinets: Replace the old cabinet with a new multipurpose one to let your TV sit nicely on it. Along with that, you can store your memorable photo frames, collectables, books, etc. in other cabinets and make this piece of furniture the focal point of your living room. If you already have a good TV bench, you can add attractive and sturdy storage units on either side to create one whole furniture unit. BESTÅ, LISABO and BRIMNES are some great modern and stylish options to choose from.
So, just by putting in a few hours, you can give the favourite room of your home a brand new look! Whether you want to spend a romantic evening with your partner or have friends over this room will be the perfect venue!
