Easy Ways to Brighten Up Your Living Room
If you feel like your living room décor is outdated and dull then it’s time to make a change. There’s no reason to stick with a design that you’re not in love with. Revamping your living room is incredibly easy. You can change it up as often as you want! Here are some fresh ideas to brighten up your living room.
Add Throw Pillows
A good set of throw pillows should not be underrated and their design adds richness and texture to any room. Adding throw pillows is also a great way to change up color without taking on the task of repainting walls. Pillows can also be changed out easily based on seasons – bringing warmth in the fall and winter and fresh, bright accents for spring and summer. Adding a few new pillows only takes a few minutes and the change is instant!
Invest in a Rug
A quality rug is like a good set of throw pillows. It instantly adds character to a room and it makes it so that you don’t have to commit to a major design change. If the rug doesn’t appeal to you over time, you can easily swap it out for a different one. Keep in mind that rugs vary widely in price. Some are affordable while others are quite expensive. Research materials and decide what will fit your style, season in life and budget best. If your walls are vibrant in color, a solid neutral colored rug might be the best fit whereas if your walls are neutral, a busier rug design will bring interest and flare and brighten up your living room.
Use Your Green Thumb
Who doesn’t love plants? Indoor plants are rising in popularity as modern consumers embrace the outdoors and the green trend is definitely thriving. If you are bored with your living room, adding a few plants can reignite your interest. It gives you something to take care of but without a huge time commitment. If the the idea of a real plant doesn’t quite strike your fancy, consider an artificial option to brighten up your living room. Retailers have done a great job mimicking the look of natural live plants and there are a variety of options depending on what you prefer.
Fun paintings on the wall are a conversation starter and an easy way to brighten up your living room. People’s eyes will naturally be drawn toward the art when they enter your living room. Your story about meeting the artist in the New Orleans French Quarter or finding the painting buried in grandparent’s basements will entertain your guests.
