Jazz Up Your Living Room

Window blinds in Santa Rosa Beach, FL can be part of jazzing up the style of your living room, along with other changes you can make. Look around your living room and see if it inspires you or if it makes you want to go into another room. Your living room may get used a lot or a little, but in either case, you can do some things to make it fresh and inviting.

If you’re like most homeowners, the furniture in your living room may be showing signs of wear and tear or they may just look outdated. Some furniture, such as antiques and family heirlooms, can add special touches to your living room, but sofas, loveseats, recliners and coffee and end tables can become unattractive over time.

Maybe your sofa, loveseat, and recliners were purchased years ago, and the leather or cloth is getting frayed or torn, has stains, or has faded from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. While purchasing brand new furniture is an option for jazzing up your living room, a much more affordable option is to have them reupholstered with new and updated materials (if the frames and springs are still in good shape).

Coffee and end tables get used a lot and scratches and rings from drinks are inevitable on wood finishes. Coffee and end tables that have glass coverings may have scratches or cracks in them. You can choose to replace these with new tables, or you may simply want to refinished wood or by new glass for your coffee and end tables.

Painting is another way to simply and inexpensively jazz up your living room. If your living room feels dark and dank on cloudy or rainy days, it may be the paint color that makes it feel gloomier. Choose bright colors to make your living room feel more spacious, airy, and light even when the sun isn’t shining outside.

Warm colors, such as light yellow, will be more inviting during the day in natural light and during the night with artificial light than cool colors, like blues and grays. Use bright white paint for the ceiling to give your living room a more open look.

Flooring wears out too. You may have rugs and flooring in your living room that have seen a lot of spills and dirt and mud tracked in from outside over the years, as well as a lot of ultraviolet rays from the sun, and they show it. If your flooring is wood, it can often be less expensive to repair and refinish it than to have new flooring installed. Rugs and carpet, though, can be replaced fairly inexpensively to add new vibrancy to your living room.

Now, look at your windows. Do you have dark curtains or drapes that you had installed when you bought your home? Do you have shades or blinds that aren’t operating properly because they’re broken or torn? Are all the colors faded?

Having new window blinds installed is another way you can jazz up your living room. Window blinds come in many types of materials and a wide array of colors, so you use them as an accent to the rest of your living room’s color scheme or you can use them to bring the whole style you’ve created together.
