Are you ready to refresh your living room, but don’t have the time or energy to commit to a full makeover? Sometimes even the smallest changes can leave a big impression. Take inspiration from these quick living room decor ideas and turn your space into a home you’ll love.
Play with pillows
Cushions and small pillows are a great way to cozy up any space, and you can adorn your sofa or armchair with as many as you like. Throw pillows are also a great way to experiment with new trends and patterns without long-term commitment as you can change their covers any time you like. Go for bold colors and prints throughout the year and switch to a holiday theme when that time of the year comes along.
Roll out a rug
Whether you have wall-to-wall carpeting or wooden panels, the right rug can add the right amount of jazz to any living room. A large rug will add texture to your living room setting and you can use it to group pieces of furniture together in an area. Allow your rug to sit comfortably under the legs of any furniture for solid support, and choose one in a color that contrasts the rest of your living room’s theme. Small rugs can be placed between sections to divide up a large living room into different areas.
Perk things up with plants
Switch up the decor in your living room with some greenery. Plants are a lovely way to add life to your space and they bring a sense of harmony to your home throughout the year. Place large, leafy plants near a natural source of light, or use them to block off an awkward space in your living room. Smaller potted plants and succulents make for great table companions and are low-maintenance if you lead a busy lifestyle.
Blank walls are a blank canvas
Brace yourselves, but millennials are making sure that wallpapers make a classy comeback. It’s a big no to loud 70’s-style florals, and a ‘yes please!’ to pastel hues and large prints that combine art with nature. If a statement wall is not your thing, use photo frames of various shapes, sizes, and materials to create a gallery wall. Display family photos, travel memories, and art in a grid that speaks to your personality. These living room wall ideas work well in rooms of any size.
Contain the clutter
There’s nothing more unpleasant to the eye than clutter, and a great way to keep things fresh is by tidying up. Stash away your knick-knacks, stationery, children’s toys, and extra cables for a quick fix. These can be piled into nice-looking baskets in a corner or shoved into the drawers of a buffet or shelving unit. Stack magazines, books, and documents on bookshelves with figurines in between for a stylish look.
Stick labels onto any boxes of items that don’t get used often, so next time you need something you’re not rummaging through in search of it. Remember, it’s easy to make your house a home with a little fix-me-up for your living room. Check out our blog for more living room decor ideas!
How do I decorate my living room?
Start by framing your favorite photographs and displaying them on tables or as a gallery wall. This adds a quick, personal touch to any living room.
What wall art is best for a small living room?
If you have a small space, use one wall to showcase a large piece of art that draws attention from the rest of the room and gives it a focal point.
Which furniture shall I go for my living room?
Go for furniture that works well with the shape and size of your room. If 2 people are using the space, then opt for a 2-seater sofa and a small coffee table. If you need to fill a large area with multiple seating options, then skip the central coffee table and place small tables at every end.
