The living room is one of the most used spaces in your home. A lot of entertaining and hanging out happens there. After a few years of living, you may start to feel like your living room feels a little too lived in. If you’re ready for a change but not sure where to start, don’t worry. Here are some easy ways to refresh your living room.
Start by decluttering
If your first guess was decluttering, you’re right! Experts agree that decluttering is the best first step for every project because it gives you an empty canvas to work with. Clear out everything in the living room and carefully consider which pieces will return. Put items that belong in other rooms of the house in their proper place and find homes for the remaining items you want to keep. Toss or donate everything else.
Give everything a deep clean
Cleaning is often overlooked or glossed over but is another important step along with decluttering. Dirt and dust can overwhelm a beautiful space and items. Give everything in your living room a thorough cleaning, including the sofa and curtains for a fresh feel.
Change your layout
It sounds simple but rearranging your layout can breathe fresh air into your living room without spending a dime. You may be surprised at the impact moving your furniture can have. Pull your sofa and chairs away from the wall and try new arrangements to find the ideal layout for your family.
Repurpose owned items
Shop your home to find items that can work in the living room. Perhaps you have an extra chair or a pretty serving tray that can fit in your living room. Do you have any collections collecting dust in the closet? Consider giving them a new home in the living room.
Refresh your accents
Accent pieces are typically what brings everything together in your space. If you want a quick and inexpensive way to give your living room a new look, refreshing your accent pieces is the best way. Swap in some new lighting, throw pillows, rugs, artwork, or other small decorative pieces to give your living a new feel.
Bring a little nature into your home with greenery and natural elements like branches and flowers. Flowers and plants can completely change a room’s vibe. Worried about keeping plants alive? Don’t worry; you can layer natural plants with artificial ones.
