5 Easy Ways to Transform Your Living Room

Since the lockdown, perhaps most of us found ourselves drifting between our rooms and living rooms. Living rooms have always been essential for gathering around with family or sitting around when your friends are over. That is precisely why you should consider changing your living room to keep it looking fresh and up to date with trends.

Here are some easy ways you can change the look of your living room and spruce it up.

1. Rearrange Your Furniture

Updating your living room doesn't always have to be about spending money. You can bring plenty of change just by rearranging your existing furniture. The way you choose to rearrange your furniture has a lot to do with how you host or seat people. Ideally, have a focal point in your living room, like a table or the TV. If you tend to have people over often, then focus on creating a cozy space for conversations.

Remember not to upset the visual weight balance of your living room if you're moving your furniture around.

2. Update Your Walls

Next, look around you. See if there is something you can put up or bring down from your walls. Although we generally don't tend to notice, smaller adjustments like these can have a huge impact on the overall look of your living space.

3. Change Your Rug

Changing your rug can dramatically change the look of your living room, particularly if you bring in a different color than before. Since your living room is a place of high traffic, you should consider getting a darker rug that doesn't show all the stains. However, consider the overall look of your living room before you make the final decision.

4. Play With Lights

You can achieve another subtle but paradoxically powerful effect with your living room lights. If your living room has access to natural light, you can play with that by changing the curtains. Or you can consider changing the general distribution of light and create opposite effects to your existing living room setup.

5. Update Your Center Table

Finally, a big change in your basic living room design can be achieved by updating your living room's centerpiece — the table. You can go ahead and get a new table to suit your current style or just rearrange the things on the table to achieve a specific effect. Add in some elements that reflect your personality and your aesthetic taste.

If you want to liven your living room, then minor adjustments can make a massive difference. A table centerpiece is an excellent place to start.
