You love your home. It is comfortable and cozy.

As you look around your living room, you think, “It’s time for a facelift.” You flip through some magazines, search online or see us on facebook and find some ideas that will work for you.

Now it’s time to take action.
Consider these impressive ways to spice up your living room.

Replace Your Flooring

One update with high impact is replacing the floors. There are some sensible choices you should consider. It also depends on what is common in your area. For example, if all of the homes in your area have upgraded to hardwood, but you haven’t, that’s generally not going to look very good if you want to sell one day.

Hardwoods have become quite popular in the southern U.S., and they add warmth to your space. Carpeting is widely used as well when you want a nice, soft, cozy feeling under your feet. Patch warns that many times carpet can be a wild card. If you are ever planning on selling, you should be prepared to replace it for resale, which can be expensive. Any of these choices would modernize your room and add value to your home.

The Power of Paint

One of the changes to a room with the biggest impact is paint. Maybe you don’t want to change out your furniture, but changing your room color will make that furniture take on a completely different look. There is a misconception about dark versus light wall colors. Darker colors used in the right room can give a warm, cozy, and inviting feeling. House Painting Tutorials recommends adding an accent wall to add character to your room.

It’s worth noting that accent walls do not have to be solid-colored paint. There are any number of ideas for some real punch, so go ahead, and get imaginative. If you don’t like it, you can always paint over it!

Your home is your domain. Living with the same decor for years could eventually affect your mood. With so many ways to change the look of your living room without a big price tag, there’s no reason to live with an outdated room. Small changes can make a big impact and can add value to your home.

Facelift the Windows

You wouldn’t think that window treatments are that noticeable when updating a room. However, it is the least expensive way to update the windows yet can still add some pizzazz. Plantation shutters are also a good choice because this option is not decor specific. For a softer look, you can pair shutters with draperies.

More recently, motorized shades are in style. Some you can control with your smartphone, and you don’t even have to be in the house. These would be perfect for a crisp, modern look, but keep in mind that when redecorating, you’ll want to match your window dressings to the design of your living room. Budget Blinds recommends, using an array of stunning blinds, shades, shutters, or draperies can complement the design of your living room and can add the little extra something to spice it up.
