5 Inspirational Ideas For Living Room Renovations
Living rooms are a lot like the heart of your home. It’s where you spend time with family and friends, and it’s where you spend time with yourself.
So it’s only fair that your living room reflects the very best in décor. But that’s easier said than done. Mastering living room renovation takes time, lots of thought and some expert help. Nevertheless, it’s worth jumping in!
There’s only one way to finish the perfect living room renovation, and that’s to start it. So take a look at these inspirational ideas, and see if you can integrate them into your own living room renovation. Add a little bit of your own personal spice, and before you know it you’ll have the living room of your dreams.
#1 If you think of your blank walls as blank canvases, your living room renovation will really shine!
There’s something just a little bit soulless about metres upon metres of blank walls. Sure, they’re not exactly unsightly. But they also lack the warmth and vibrancy that you want out of your living room. Luckily, the disadvantage of blank walls is exactly what makes them easy to work with. If you treat a blank white wall like it’s your own blank white canvas, you can come up with some creative décor solutions. Perhaps add a splash of colour, or a focal piece to draw the gaze. Whatever you choose, make sure it reflects a little bit of you by adding a personal touch!
#2 Natural light is the best light: floor to ceiling windows belong in all living room renovations
Even the most creative designers and builders can’t emulate natural light with bulbs. The simple fact is that nothing compares to the warmth and ambience of good natural light. But if you’re short on windows, it can be hard to come by. Luckily, you’re getting a living room renovation! If you team up with a good builder, you can get those slim and dim old windows taken out, and the window space itself expanded. If your home is configured suitably, you can even replace them with floor to ceiling windows, for an abundance of natural light. The transformation will be almost indescribable.
#3 Think about flooring – your living room renovation needs to start from the ground up!
Flooring: it’s the very foundation of your living room, and it’ll be the foundation of your living room renovation too. So if your current living room flooring is dated, damaged, deteriorated or just plain dull, get it replaced! There are no limits to your creativity during a living room renovation, and nothing needs to be off limits. With the right team behind you, you can start your living room renovation with some shiny new flooring. And it can be anything from polished timber to polished concrete – the choice is yours!
#4 Built-in cabinetry isn’t just for the kitchen – it can truly transform your living room too
When you think of cabinetry, you think kitchens. And sure, kitchens are home to the majority of cabinetry in an ordinary home. But after your living room renovation, you want your home to be anything but ordinary! So get creative with your living room storage. Built-in cabinetry can help you win back some floor space, by creating recessed storage spaces. It looks sleek, and it serves a practical purpose too.
#5 Short on space? In your living room renovation, add a focal point that directs the gaze upward
On the topic of regaining space, let’s talk spaciousness. If you don’t have a lot to work with, there are a few tricks you can employ during your living room renovation. One of our favourites is to draw the gaze higher. Just like looking at the sky, looking above eye level in a living room can make it feel much more spacious. So work with colours, textures, and fittings to create a more spacious feel in your living room – no matter its actual size!
