Every once in a while, we look at our living spaces and feel the need to upgrade. Whether we’re influenced by the latest interior design trends or feel it's time for a change. Today we’re covering four ways to tell what your living room could do with an upgrade.
1. Your style changed, but not your living room
We get it, so it doesn’t mean that you’re upgrading your lifestyle or personal preference in the style that you have to upgrade your home too. In fact, it takes time, planning and money to do some upgrades to your home.
Still, if it's been a few years and you’ve already changed your personal look, then it’s probably time to change your living space too. Transformation often covers a broad spectrum. In other words, you are having a “makeover” to transform yourself and indeed your home too.
Tip: If you’re in this post, then perhaps it's a sign that it’s time to look at some possible changes for your living room.
2. The bedroom seems a better space to relax rather than your lounge
The bedroom, by all means, has to be one of the comfiest places in the home since it’s in the bedroom that we will wind down and sleep. Still, we can’t help but wonder if perhaps you’re spending more time relaxing in your bedroom because the living room isn’t as pretty and inviting anymore?
As time changes, so do specifics in style and trends. What worked in the 70s for décor will not cut it in 2022. That said, it’s maybe time to makeover your living room to match the comfort of your bedroom. In this way, you can unwind in the lounge before heading to bed.
Tip: Consider your colour options, lighting and décor finish to make the living room a wonderful space to unwind.
3. There isn’t enough light, and the living room looks dark and gloomy
Few things complement a space the way light does. Light is like a magic piece that will open up the space and create a light, bright environment when added to any living space, including a living room.
Having a light and bright living room is not only inviting but mood uplifting too since light has positive effects on our mood in general.
Tip: Keep as much natural light as possible to light up the living room. If natural light isn’t an option, then add an addition of beautiful lighting finishes to set the tone and mood during different times of the day. Creating a skylight is another good way to get natural light in.
#4. Your seats don’t allow you to sit for a long time
When your living room’s seats are uncomfortable, it can cause pain. You might want to watch your favourite show or a movie, but your back is too sore from watching altogether. When your couches and chairs are giving problems, the chances are they will continue to get worse later on.
Tip: For high-traffic zones like the living room couches and seats, you need to invest in quality and something that can handle the traffic and last a long time.
