4 Ways To Spice Up Your Living Space

4 Ways To Spice Up Your Living Space

Your living room is typically one of the places that you spend lots of time in your home whether it’s watching football, entertaining guests or just relaxing, it is definitely a do it all room. Here are a few easy ways to spice up your living room and give it a personal touch.

 

Paint

Painting is far and away the best way to add a personal touch to any room. If you are good at taking your time and have a great attention to detail, you can even do the painting yourself. However, if you are not good with details and don’t like working on ladders, hiring a painting professional is not overly expensive for most budgets.

Millwork

If your millwork is a standard 2.5″ – 3″ in height and barely noticeable, consider installing some new, more decorative millwork. In many homes today, homeowners are installing 4-6″ millwork along with crown molding along the ceiling. This really adds a bit of elegance to a room and makes the molding stand out and become part of the room.

Rugs

A rug might be the easiest thing you can do to transform a room. Options for rugs are truly endless as you can choose different shapes, patterns, colors and materials. A well thought out rug can add character and color to an otherwise bland room.

Furniture

Spicing up a room with furniture definitely works, but can be more expensive than the other routes mentioned. If you have the money, purchasing unique furniture that sets the tone in a room will definitely give your room some flair. Other options include refinishing/painting furniture from garage sales and thrift stores. You can find many online tutorials on refinishing furniture.
