If you’ve had enough with the same old living room design from last year, well it’s time to change things up. Changing the entire room completely will cost you a fortune so you need to do a very few easy things to switch things up a little bit. Your living room is the first thing a guest notices as soon as he enters and hence it needs to look the best out of all other room in the house. The first impression is the last impression so give it your best. Here are some simple things you can do.RearrangeHow hard is it to push around the existing furniture and rearrange the room’s structure? All you have to do is draw a picture in your mind as what should go where and try it out. Make use of corners and small spaces and see if you can fit any furniture in them. Rather than switching them up at once, you can measure the spaces and the size of furniture so that you know exactly how things can fit. There are various techniques that can make a room look spacious just by placing the furniture in a certain way.

For example, placing the couch in a diagonal position to the wall will add volume to it. Also, if you bring all furniture to the centre, there will be ample room to walk around it making the room look bigger. Look them up online and choose the best for you. While pulling the couches all about, you might want to do some upholstery cleaning Chatswood before you place them.

Add one new itemYou need to get one item that catches the eye of a guest and make that item the hero of the room. It could be a crystal vase, oil painting, custom made coffee table etc. You can base the rest of the room’s décor on this one item. For example, if you have a turquoise vase that your grandma gifted, choose such a shade for the walls and couch cushions. A beautiful Kashmir carpet will also do the trick. You don’t have to worry about the cleaning since there are professional carpet cleaners North Sydney who can do the job for you.

Focus on the wallsUsing colours effectively will add life to your living room. Go for light colours such as yellow or light blue so that the rooms look less congested. Dark colours make rooms look smaller. You can focus on just one wall and leave the others in a pale colour. For example, paint one wall yellow and leave the others white or off white. Or you can pick out stylish wallpaper that matches the ambience of the room.
