Design Your Living Room With These Quick And Easy Update Ideas !
The living room is one of the busiest rooms in the home. All of the family will make use of it at some point during the day. So over time it can get a little worn out and tired. After a little while, it might need a little update. It can be easy to make a few changes to the living room furniture arrangement, without having to change everything. Just updating a few things at a time can make such a difference to the look of the room. Of course, it does depend on what your budget is as to what you will change first. If you have a lot to spend, then one of the first things to change is the seating.
Sofas can get pretty worn out. So if yours are looking a little tired, then it would be a good thing to update. Leather sofa sets often are the hardest wearing so they might be best for a replacement.
Ottomans and footstools are a great idea to design your living room and mix things up too. It helps to create some extra storage for the bits and bobs around the room. It makes a new feature, as well as gives you somewhere to put your feet up.
So if you just wanted something new to add to the room, they could be a great option. Extra storage is always a winner, right ?
Flooring is something that will mix up the look of a room too. You could start off with having the carpets cleaned. If you have lighter coloured carpets, they pick up dirt quickly. That can give the carpets a quick update, without having to replace anything. Looking online for cheap carpet cleaning services is a pretty inexpensive option.You could change the look of the flooring with a rug. You’d be surprised at just how much of a difference a rug can make.
If you were up for changing the flooring, then it will make the room look so different. If you currently have carpet, it might be nice to mix up the flooring and change to wooden flooring. Wooden flooring can be a bit of an expensive option, though. Wood look tiles look fantastic and create the effect of tiles instead. They can be quicker and easier to install than wooden flooring too.
Lighting is a great way to update the room. Even just replacing the light bulbs could be a good thing to do. It can lighten up the room and make things brighter. So opt for a higher wattage of light bulbs.
If you only have wall lights at the moment, it might be a good idea to get some floor lamps or lamps for coffee tables.Then you can create mood lighting if you need to. It makes the room much brighter and sparkling too.
A cheap way to update the lighting in a room is to install a dimmer switch. It is super quick and easy to do, and you can create mood lighting that way as well.

I love the ideas you shared here. We bought our house a couple of years ago and have been slowly re-doing all of the rooms to reflect our taste. The kitchen is next followed by the living room, so I’ll definitely be back for inspiration.
Such a great inspiration! Thanks for sharing!
A new area rug and drapes are order for my room. Two simple things that can make a big difference.
Hi Laurie , thanks for your nice comment! Yes, you are right, just a few little touches can make a huge difference.
nothing beats a great couch – and I love pretty lighting (that lamp making patterns on the wall was gorgeous)
I absolutely love these styles and colours. I could live in any one of these rooms,
