Spacious living roomNext to your bedroom, the living room is the part of your house that should make you feel most welcome. What if your living room no longer seems inviting to you? Then, perhaps it’s time for some makeover. Here are some ideas:

Dress up the walls

The walls not only provide structural support and serve as partitions; they also enhance a home’s overall appearance. For your living room, the simplest makeover method is to give it a fresh coat of paint. If you want a more dramatic transformation, as Supawood and other experts noted, consider altering their finish. One way you can do this is by having, for example, timber panelling interior walls installed over the existing plain ones.

Retouch the floor

Like the walls, the floor serves both practical and decorative purposes. To improve your living room, start by cleaning or polishing your existing flooring (especially the tile, marble, or granite types) to make it shine again. For the hardwood type, you should have it refinished to repair scratches or holes. If you have the means, you can also go all out and have your living room flooring changed to another type (e.g. from laminate to carpet).

Embellish with fixtures

Aside from furniture, you can add other features to your living room to make it more appealing and inviting. A fireplace, for instance, can help create a warm and cosy look for your living room. On the other hand, a water feature (like an indoor glass waterfall) gives off a calm and peaceful vibe. For a fun and engaging atmosphere, you can consider adding a small bar to your living room.
