Tips for Sprucing Up Your Living Room On a Weekend

The living room is the heart of any home and it is a space where your family and friends will come to relax and make memories. This room is used very often and it’s not surprising when it just starts to get a bit rundown. 

The best way to counteract this is to do some upgrades whenever necessary. A weekend is a great time for you to do upgrades and make your living room more livable. Here’s a look at some quick and easy ways to spruce up the space.

Declutter and Rearrange

A living room upgrade should be kicked off by the rearranging of your furniture. When you have a clutter free space you will instantly have a space that feels inviting and spacious at the same time. 

If there is a lot of junk in your living room then you need to get three boxes and start organizing which items you want to keep, which ones you want to donate, and which ones you want to trash. 

Statement Wall

A statement wall is a great way for you to make your living room come alive. The statement wall is a focal point of the entire room and should be made to pop. It should give that “wow” effect if possible. 

It’s easy to do this; you can simply paint one wall a different color from the rest of the room. This color should strike a strong contrast so that it stands out. In other cases, you can use wallpaper to achieve this effect.

Touch Up Your Fireplace

Your fireplace is also a centerpiece of the living room. It provides a lot of warmth and should be well taken care of. 

If you need fireplace repair then go ahead and do so before the upgrade you can do over the weekend. This upgrade is simply to paint the mantle of the fireplace as well as the wall above it. 

Lighting Makeover

Try to upgrade your lighting fixtures to create a more inviting and well-lit living room. Pendant lights can be installed to make things easier. Also, take a careful look at your chandelier. Is it time for you to take it down and install a new one? 

Find floor and table lamps that you can put in the right place to create an amazing ambiance that makes the room come alive, especially at night. You can get ideas for these on social media.

Add Art and Decor

Adding the right pieces of art is a great way for you to make the room come alive. The right art in the correct space can be a head-turner in the room. Make sure that you choose colors that match the existing decor.

You can also do DIY art projects yourself on a weekend. Simply pull up your YouTube app and you will find many tutorials that are easy to do, so you can become your own Picasso. This is how you can make room for creativity in your life and show off your decorating skills.
