02 Aug 5 Living Room Remodel Ideas You’ll Love
The living room is the window to your home, providing a good opportunity to make a first impression on visitors and show off your sense of style and organisation. It’s also a place to sit and spend some quality time with your loved ones. Luckily, the living room is one of the easiest and least expensive areas of the home to renovate, and below, we share some remodelling ideas that will have your living room looking brand new.
- Refresh or replace your front door
During any living room remodel, refreshing or replacing the front door is a no-brainer. For one, it gives the room a fresh look. Secondly, if your living room is at the front of your house, a new door improves your curb appeal. The good thing is: you don’t need to buy a new door – you carry out minor fixes on the old one, change the coat of paint, and have it looking new. But if you do need a new door, consider sturdy and well-crafted pieces.
- Get new windows to maximise lighting
Nothing typifies the living part of ‘living room’ like letting natural light into the space. Now, because of their long lifespan, windows are seen as permanent fixtures, not something that needs to be changed at all. Subsequently, the windows in many homes are draughty, not up to scratch, and need replacing. Check yours now to see the current condition – is it letting enough light into the room? If not, you’ll need a new set. While searching around, look out for energy-saving windows.
- Repaint the space with a new palette
Repainting is one of the most popular niches of remodelling, and with good reason. It doesn’t cost a lot of money, you can DIY, and a few hours of work provides visible results. So, no living room refresh is complete without a new paint job. To give the space a new look, choose a different colour palette from the one you have currently. Neutral colours are the wave for living rooms these days, and you can pick from white, beige, cream, grey, or light brown.
- Create the illusion of space
If you don’t have a lot of real estate in your living room, it can cramp your style and make the area seem cramped at the same time. Thankfully, there are quick fixes you can apply to make your living room look bigger. You should look to implement the following during your next remodelling: paint your ceiling white, get tall shelves that rise toward the ceiling, use a rug with a large surface area, and place a statement piece (like a chandelier) to catch the eye and make the room feel bigger.
- Break down a wall and expand the room
This is an extreme one, but it works. Nothing will change the look of your living room like expanding the space considerably. And this is only possible when you break down an adjoining wall. If you have a room close by that you don’t mind converting, then start making plans to do so. For this project, you’ll probably need the help of a home renovation specialist. Because you don’t want to bring down a load-bearing wall, or start off a remodelling that you can’t complete.
