Your living room is that sacred space where you spend a lot of time together. Be it watching TV or entertaining your guests, it is that space that speaks volumes about your personality. Remember, first impressions are everything. And no one ever told you that you have to keep it the same way always. Add a dash of freshness to your living room with these simple tips.
Declutter for a quick makeover
First things first. Look around, do you see something you do not use often? Can you do without it? If you can, declutter. Stow it away or throw out stuff you think does not add to the aesthetics of the room. Larger, clutter-free spaces create the impression of more space too.
Try and bring in a change
From changing the drapes and curtains to adding some throw pillows on the sofa, these changes can be subtle and budget-friendly. Bring out the artist in you, try your hand at paintings, indoor gardening, and make your living room your area to show off your talents.
For the kids
Since the kids are at home, allocate some space for them. Carve out a playroom nook in your living room. This will ensure you can keep an eye on them while you are enjoying conversations or a TV show. You can even designate a wall in your living room, call it the wonder wall and show of the paintings and other achievements your child has won.
Let the sun, shine in
Make your living room airier and a fun place to be in. The strategic placement of a mirror can add an enormous amount of natural light in your home. It will also make your space appear bigger.
Living cum home office
With a little help from your family, you can convert your living room into a home office. Pull up a desk behind the sofa, add in a chair, and hey presto, you have a home office right in the most important room in the house!
