It's time to make some changes to your living room. After all, it has been a whole year since you last changed anything! There are many ways to update your living space, and here are the top four ways for you!
DIY a Bar Area
If you love to entertain and grab a drink with your friends, then why not have a bar in the living room? You can create an area for this by installing cabinets or shelves under your TV. If you don't want to make any pricey changes, many stores sell ready-made bars as well or find ways to affordably transform your pallet bar!
Your home bar will be more than just a gathering place; it can also serve as storage for your cocktail glasses and store other bar supplies.
If you're short on space, consider installing shelves that are at different heights to maximize the amount of room available! Additionally, if you don't want to have all of the alcohol out in plain sight, try installing a mirrored cabinet with glass doors.
If you're starting, try using bar carts as opposed to a full-blown custom bar! These are easy on the wallet, and they offer some excellent storage space for your alcohol too!
A perfect way to make your living room feel like it has been updated is by adding this touch of class.
Add a Chandelier
A chandelier is a perfect way to add an instant touch of elegance and class to your living room. You can find many different styles on sites like eBay or Amazon, so it's easy for you to customize what you're looking for! Plus, they come in a wide range of price points too!
When deciding where exactly you want to install your chandelier, think about the focal point of your living room. If it's a fireplace or TV, try installing the chandelier over that area for extra drama!
Mix Modern and Vintage Pieces
If you're looking for a way to bring in both the old and new, then try mixing different pieces of furniture! For example, try adding a modern coffee table to your vintage couch or vice versa.
You'll be surprised at how much more interesting it will make your living room feel! Plus, if you find that this mix doesn't suit your needs, you can always switch it up.
Have More Green
If you're looking for some more green in your living room, then try out the idea of adding plants. If you have ample space available, consider getting an entire plant wall! Not only will this provide great decoration but it's also good for the environment. You can purchase faux plants, too, if that suits your needs better and they're easier to maintain.
If you're looking for something more temporary, try out the idea of a seasonal plant wall! These are perfect if you want the green without committing to it all year long, and they can be changed with each season. Plus, this type is easy to maintain.
In conclusion, there are many ways to update your living room this year, and hopefully you will find some of these ideas helpful.
