As the heart and soul of any house, the living room should be a place that inspires togetherness and invites friends and family to pull up a chair and stay awhile. When looking to remodel your living room, here are four ideas designed to make the space as amazing as possible:
Color is Everything
The color palette you choose sets the tone for the entire room. Whether you are looking to convey a rich and homey look or a laid-back, breezy vibe, the choice of colors for your exterior walls and furnishing say a lot about what the room inspires to be. Even if you do not have the budget for a full remodel, a fresh coat of paint in a popping color can make the room appear completely different.
Although it is tempting to choose the stylish options over more cozy designs, do not make the mistake of falling for the latest furniture trends without consideration of comfort. For a living room, it is paramount to put comfort above all else. You want to create a space that encourages relaxation and warmth. In addition to reclining chairs and big couches, a basket of blankets will help to make people feel comfortable and at ease.
A barn door can be used for a myriad of purposes in a living space. If you do not need an actual door to separate the living room from the rest of the house, you can use a barn door in a host of other ways to create a shabby chic look. Barn doors can be used to slide across entertainment systems when not in use. These doors can also be used to separate a large area of the room from a smaller and more specialized space. For example, a barn door can be used to create a cozy game nook in your living area.
Consider the Floor
Do not neglect the flooring when remodeling your living space. The correct flooring option should provide durability and comfort for years to come. Even a simple area rug can add coziness and warmth to a normally sterile place. Be careful though, as rugs and carpets can require special cleaning to keep their aesthetic for years. When deciding on your flooring, be sure to consider the anticipated wear and tear and choose wisely.
With a little creativity and DIY tutorials, you can create a living area that is a perfect reflection of your family’s personality and usage patterns.
If you’re thinking of remodeling, we highly recommend investing in your cabinets. Think of your kitchen, your bathroom, or anywhere you already have cabinets. Chances are they were premade to just fit in anywhere, and chances are even more likely that they were made several decades ago. New cabinets provide an unprecedented level of class and beauty to any room of your house, and since we custom make all of our cabinets we can make them exactly to your specifications. We can match the color of your home, the furniture around it, we can even put miniature barn doors on our cabinets, and of course, we can have them match your new floor.
