The living room is often one of the most used rooms in the house because of the myriad functions it performs. It is the perfect place to welcome your guests, relax and watch television. Since you spend a lot of time in this room, you might want to refresh the style every once in a while so it can look its best.
Since renovating a living room doesn’t necessarily have to involve a complete makeover, here are some ideas that will help you give your room a fresh look without breaking the bank.
Expand your living room by tearing down an interior wall
If you have a room adjacent to the living room that you aren’t afraid to sacrifice, you can tear down an interior wall to create a large open space. Although the work is more complicated if the partition turns out to be a load-bearing wall, the end result will certainly be worth it. You have a spacious room that is perfect for entertaining.
Create a brand-new decor by painting your living room walls
Repainting a room is undoubtedly one of the most cost-effective and efficient ways to give it a new look. In the case of a living room, you can choose almost any colour, although neutral or pale colours are more likely to create a relaxing atmosphere. That said, it might be interesting to paint one of the walls with a bright colour if you want to spice up your decor a little bit.
Add architectural elements like mouldings and baseboards
Adding floor baseboards and ceiling mouldings will provide a higher level of finish to your living room. They can also be used to add height or texture effects. Moreover, this type of renovation can be done at a very reasonable cost. You can surely find moulding styles in store that perfectly match the look you want to give your room.
Install a new flooring in your living room
A room’s flooring is extremely important to the overall impression it leaves. Floating floors or hardwood floors are still popular because of their durability and ease of maintenance, but also because of the many colours available. While laying a wooden floor is a task best left to professionals, some types of floors are easier to install.
Change the lighting in the room
A room’s atmosphere is strongly influenced by its lighting. Installing new suspended, recessed or rail-mounted fixtures creates an atmosphere that is perfect for relaxation. If you also choose a lighting system with a dimmer, you will be able to adjust the brightness of the room based on the activity you are doing.
