Our living room is the core of our home; the room we showcase for visitors and enjoy quiet family time in and therefore it is crucial that we ensure it is as homely and comfortable as possible. Whilst we would all love the most up to date, modern living room, it is essential this room reflects both your taste and your lifestyle.

Whilst some large changes such as; changing couches or adding new timber windows aren’t something we can all do on a regular basis, here are some smaller changes that are guaranteed to make a huge impact on your living room.

Improve your lighting

The lighting you choose for any room, particularly your living room can change the entire ambiance. If you are looking to have a living room where you and your family can relax; subtle, soft lighting can work really well and create a cosy atmosphere. However, if you want to create a space that is alert then harsher, brighter lighting will be more suitable.

Installing a dimmer switch is also the perfect solution as this will allow you to have brighter light during day time hours and a soft dimmer light for pyjama moments and those romantic evenings in.

Add an accent wall

If you really want to change things up and add a bit of the contemporary into your living room, why not add an accent wall? This wall is where you can add a bold statement in your otherwise quite neutral living room. This can be an extremely quick and cheap way of completely changing the entire look and feel of your living space.

Add some life

Believe it or not, the addition of a living and breathing plant can really enhance your living room. Whether that is an orchid or some herb pots; add them to random spaces in your lounge for a great effect.

Change your accent pillows

If you don’t currently have any accent pillows; get some! If you do have them, change them up a bit. This is a quick and inexpensive way of completely changing the colour or design theme of your living room. If you want to make sure your living space really stands out, add some brightly coloured cushions to your couch.

With these essential tips in mind, you can really enhance your living room this season without spending a fortune!
