Home Care > 5 Design Tips to Jazz Up Your Living Room

What is the most important room in your house? Well, many people would say it’s your living room. So, to celebrate living rooms across the country, we’ve put together 5 simple design tips to maximise your in-living-room comfort.

The living room is meant for relaxing and socialising (or watching TV and being unsociable – different strokes for different folks, right?). Whatever you use your living room for, it’s important that you feel relaxed when you’re there. So if you’ve just gone through the painful home removals process – or if you’re contemplating an upcoming move – take a look at some of these cool design ideas to help you feel like your living room is just the way you want it to be.

1. A Grid of Frames

Inexpensive, artistic and eye-catching! A wall gallery works best with similarly styled frames, and the contents can be as inexpensive as you like.

2. Colourful Sofa

Do away with the dull, lifeless sofa and add some colour to the room. This works particularly well in rooms with a neutral backdrop, as it adds an instant focal point to the living room.

3. Painted Floor

A painted floor is one of the quickest and cheapest ways to add some creativity to the room. If you want to get real quirky, then a colourful design (i.e, the lily-pad pattern in the above photo) can complement and enhance the room’s features.

4. Glossy Monochrome

A glossy monochromatic style is particularly useful if your living room is on the smaller side. Light will reflect off the shiny surfaces and create the illusion that the room is larger than it actually is.

5. Wall Stickers

Add a sticker to a bare wall to instantly add an eccentric quality to the room. They are incredibly easy to put up, and are perfect for those who are renting a property as they can be removed very easily. These stickers come in all sorts of colours and styles, and some places even allow you to design your own.
