The living room is one of the most used spaces in your home. It’s a versatile and multi-functional area, that caters to entertaining friends, hosting family and cosy nights in on the sofa.

As such, when it comes to revamping your living room, you want it to feel warm, welcoming and stylish. We’ve recently just about finished re-styling our living room with new wall colour and new flooring and furnishings, which I will share on the blog soon!

To help you if you’re planning your own revamp, here are 5 ways to reinvent your living room.

Upcycle Old Furniture

One of the easiest ways to breathe life into a tired living room is by updating furniture. However, replacing everything can be expensive. Instead, try upcycling. This involves repainting and recovering old furniture, to give it a new lease on life.

You could create shelves from pallets, reupholster an old armchair, or add a bold new colour scheme by creating a statement dresser.

Invest in Statement Pieces

Every living room needs those key pieces of furniture that pull the theme together. These work as a focal point, adding a touch of luxury and making the room feel more purposefully styled.

To do this, invest in statement pieces. This could include a console table (to define the entrance way in living rooms that open onto the street), a large coffee table (beautiful and functional), or an oversized rug (to make the seating area feel cosy).

Floor and Ceiling Focus

When revamping the living room, you may be preoccupied with paint colours and wallpaper samples. However, it is important not to forget the floor and ceiling – if painted well, they can transform a dull, neutral space.

Experiment and add colour to your floors and ceilings, to transform your living room. Just make sure to choose corresponding colours, so it looks stylish.

Bring Nature Indoors

Plants have the power to instantly refresh a space. They make it feel lighter and brighter, while adding a hint of colour. So, invite the outdoors into your living room by decorating with plants.

You could choose cacti to add year-long greenery (great if you’re good at killing plant, like me), or choose brightly coloured flowers that match your living room’s colour palette.

Add Colour Through Accessories

When it comes to painting or choosing a scheme, you may go with neutral shades that will stand the test of time and look stylish, regardless of trends. However, when selecting accessories, you can afford to be bolder.

Add style and personality by choosing accessories with a hint of colour. This includes throws, cushions, curtains, candles and lamp shades.

Use these easy tips to revamp your living room and transform it into a beautiful, stylish space.
