5 Tips To Improve Your Living Room Decor
If nothing is permanent except change, why has your living room been unchanged in several years? Your splendid home is still beautiful after several years, but you must admit that the décor could do with a bit of sprucing up. Rehauling the interiors, putting in more storage, even creating an extension are all excellent things to do.
But if you’re not in the mood for a major rehaul, then small touches here and there should do the trick just as well. It’s about giving the living room a fresh new look, and you don’t need to break the bank to achieve this objective. Just follow our lead with these 5 tips:
#1 Be More Chair-Ful.
Chairs are the most underrated item in home décor. When we think seating, our minds leap automatically to large sofas and squashy sofa chairs. But chairs offer among the easiest and best ways to increase seating options for the living room and bedroom. They are available in a variety of materials and designs, so finding the best one isn’t as tough as it appears. You can buy a chair online depending on the room’s colour scheme – transteel chairs go best with a cold colour palette, for example – and even foldable chairs for the kitchen to save space. You can browse through our collection for home chairs before you buy the chairs online.
#2 Invest In New Drapes And Curtains.
Most of us like to match our curtains and drapes with heavy furniture like the sofas. But this ends up restricting the curtain colour choices, unless you routinely change your sofa upholstery. If you don’t, then you might be left with the same colour of curtains in different designs. Why not go for a colour contrast with a fresh set of curtains? A new trend is to add sheer curtains in the centre and darker cotton curtains on the sides – the sheer curtains filter the sunlight, and the darker curtains add a pop of colour to the room.
#3 Let There Be Light.
Nothing is more refreshing than a ray of natural light entering the living room. It adds instant cheer to the living area, while also purifying the air and killing bacteria on the floor. But artificial light is just as important in good living room décor. The light fixtures you use can ‘shape’ the quantum of light, while you can create different zones of light as per use. For example, you can use a single pendant light to highlight a large wall, or a stunning chandelier in the main seating area.
#4 Pad The Floor.
Few sensations are as pleasurable as your feet sinking into a plush floor carpet. Many modern Indian homes are waking up to the concept of carpets and area rugs. We have an excellent collection of floor rugs to fit your living room. These visually designate different areas of use in the living room, and are also safe to use by crawling children and pets. Besides, they lend an air of sophistication to the space and add a pop of colour as well. Please pick carpets or rugs that you can.
#5 Add Wall Art.
Sign off with a flourish by investing in few pieces of wall art. You can find these on e-commerce sites and furniture sites. Wall art that defines your ethos and personality can become a great talking point when guests come over. You can have a large canvas by a famous artist on the largest wall in the living room, or decorate a smaller wall with a set of five or six prints in different sizes. Several e-commerce sites have wall art on sale, or you can visit a gallery to pick the best frames.
