Your living room is the heartbeat of your home. It is a space that always welcomes you, your family, and friends, and provides a comfortable room to relax and enjoy. Sometimes we are so used to our surroundings that we overlook furniture and home accents that show some wear and tear. It’s easier than you think to update and modernize your space to make it as beautiful as it is comfortable. Here are three easy ideas to modernize your living room.
Replace Outdated Furniture
Take a look at your sofa, chairs, and other furniture in your living room. Are the cushions of the sofa flattening, are the arms of the chairs worn through the fabric, or is the furniture simply just a little too lived in? You can either replace the entire room with brand new furniture or start slowly and replace one piece at a time.
Tip: Select new furniture pieces with neutral tones and patterns to coordinate with existing furniture.
Enhance with Art
Hanging framed art on the walls, displaying sculptures, collectibles, and art accents on end tables, accent tables, and curios are effective ways to modernize add personality to your living room.
Tip: Display artwork that has meaning to you including framed photographs, children’s artwork, and mementos.
Add Multi-Functional Furniture
Today’s lifestyles are busy, many homes double as offices, workout areas, and entertaining. Add new modernized furniture that is multi-functional. For example select a coffee table with a built-in desk, a sofa complete with a charging station, and ottomans designed to use as additional seating or table space.
Tip: Select an oversized ottoman that offers storage and keeps clutter hidden inside until it is needed.
