Tired of the current style of your living room in Foxbank Plantation? Who says that you have to do a complete overhaul of your space in order to give it a fresh look? We’re sharing a few simple ways you can transform your living room without going over-the-top with updates and renovations.
Play with the furniture
It is incredible the difference that a simple slipcover or fresh upholstery can make in the look of your room. Choose a neutral color for a clean slate that you can style with modern pillows or accessories. If you are feeling more adventurous, pick a fun patterned fabric to create a bold accent piece. You can also give your furniture a face-lift with a new coat of paint. Another quick fix that cleans up old furniture is nail head trim. Don’t believe us? See for yourself.
If all else fails, consider rearranging your furniture. Sometimes all your space needs is a new perspective. By moving your furniture around, you can create a fresh look with minimum effort.
Organize the space
You would be surprised how much clutter can distract from a home’s style and décor. A little bit of storage can go a long way. Tuck office supplies and small toys away in glass containers. Conceal your loose papers and magazines in boxes that are out of the way.
Treat your bookshelf like a display case. Don’t let it become cluttered with excess stuff. Arrange your storage in a pleasing manner. Choose a color scheme and arrange various collectibles in between your books to create a loose symmetry. You can also arrange your books by color for a clean, colorful look.
Update small décor
Sometimes all it takes is just a small addition here or there to give your space a fresh feel. Adding new throw pillows is an easy solution, especially if you are interested in trying out new trends without having to make a major commitment to patterns or color schemes.
Lighting is such a small thing that can make a huge difference. It can set the mood of the whole room and make your small spaces appear larger. By trading out a lampshade or painting the base can add that fresh pop of style you’re looking for.
Another thing to consider is swapping out your pictures or paintings. You can keep your same wall arrangements, just switch them out for different pieces that are similar sizes. An even quicker fix? Keep the same frames and simply change the pictures inside the frames.
