5 Ways to Completely Transform Your Living Room


Your living room is one room in your house where you spend a lot of time. It’s often where you eat as a family and spend your time relaxing watching TV. It might also be a room in which you do the most entertaining. Does your living room feel a little tired and outdated? Would you like to know what you can do to update it? Here are five ideas you might like to try.

Let in More Light

If you’ve got heavy curtains in the window, you’ll be letting in more light if you swap them for blinds. If there are less texture and fabric filling your windows, more daylight comes in, and the room will feel much bigger. Open up space even further by fitting doors to the outside. If you want to change the look of your patio doors or they need repairing in the future, it’s easy to do because replacement parts from Debar can be purchased online.  

Change the Color Scheme

A quick and easy way to transform your living room is to change the color scheme. The first step is to plan carefully as this keeps you on track and reduces the chance of a mistake. For a family home, it’s best to choose a hard-wearing paint. A popular way to make a big impact is with a feature wall. A single panel of wallpaper is also going to be far less expensive.

Move Things Around

It’s not something you tend to do very often but moving the furniture around is worth considering as it could well increase the sense of space. Alternatively, moving a radiator or replacing a horizontal one with a vertical one can make a huge difference.  

Clean and Declutter

Sometimes the simplest of solutions will have been staring at you for months. You’ve been looking at all the clutter in your living room for months but never got around to doing anything about it. This transformation tip might only take a few hours, and your living room will look neat and feel more open immediately. Don’t be afraid to be ruthless. You might even have some things you can sell to help finance more changes.

Update the Flooring

What flooring have you got in your living room at the moment? If it’s carpet, often a popular choice for the living room, why not consider changing it for something with a more modern feel? Replacing it with a solid wood floor changes a room instantly. It also reflects light and leaves a room with a clean, fresh feel. If a solid wood floor is a little out of your price range, there are some very affordable tile and timber-effect laminates.

Some of these suggestions might require a small investment, but there are others that cost nothing at all. Try one, two or maybe all of them, and you’ll be amazed at the transformation. A room with a tired and unloved feel will be transformed into something far more homely and welcoming.
