3 Ways To Spruce Up Your Living Room

If you are like most people, you and your family spend most of your time in either your living room or family room. Whether you're the type of family who likes to watch Netflix together or if you're the type of family who plays board games, it's nice to have a place for everyone to hang out. However, if you feel like your space is a little bit outdated, then you may be wondering how on earth you can spruce it all up. Luckily, this article will list a few tips for you. Are you ready to learn more? If so, read on. 


Paint can really be transformative; especially a large room. If your family room is painted a kind of beige or tan color, then it may make the space look a lot smaller. To help brighten up your space and make it look a lot bigger, consider having it painted a bright white. White is a trend that isn't going anywhere anytime soon. In fact, white is considered to be the new neutral, and as soon as you paint your walls or have them professionally painted you will notice a big difference. 


Once you paint your space, then it's time to get furniture. One furniture trend that is really popular right now is mid-century modern. The fun thing about mid-century modern is that it can look really current, and you can mix it with a variety of different styles as well. For instance, you can get mid-century side chairs and then mix them with more traditional furniture like a console or couch. When you are choosing furniture for your family room, make sure that you choose fabrics that are durable like microfiber or leather; that way you won't have to worry too much about staining. 


Whether you have wood floors, tile, or carpet in your family room, it can be expensive to switch out your floors. To help you save on some money, consider getting a new rug instead. A new rug will help transform your space for a fraction of the cost of new flooring. Plus, a new rug can help tie in all for your furniture with the rest of your decor. When choosing a rug, make sure that it's not too light so that stains don't show up.
