  • Opt for neutral tones when it comes to the wall paints. You can go from white to dirty white, grey to dark grey, and browns. 

It’s because neutral tones are relaxing to the eyes and will totally give your living room a brighter and cosier vibe.

  1. Give more room for natural light by using huge and transparent windows. Huge windows will create a clearer look of the living room as well as reduces the use of light bulbs.

    If you have a small living area, huge windows and large mirrors can make it appear bigger. 


  1. Create a small area on the side just for two. You can put two industrial chairs and a coffee table to incorporate the intimate look.

  2. Add a few soft blankets and throw pillows to make it look more accommodating and relaxing.

    Having soft blankets and throw pillows to curl up with also add texture, vibrancy, and warm vibe to the living room. 



  1. When revamping your living area, don’t forget to add bookshelves and of course, books, and other reading materials such as magazines, journals, and colouring books for kids.

    The use of bookshelves is a great way to use up empty large spaces or turn your wall into a livelier one.

  2. Since it’s an area where you gather with your family, have a chit-chatting session, or exchange waves of laughter, why not add your family photos, right?

    You can either put them on the side tables, bookshelves or hang them on the walls. Adding some personal or family photos will make your living area more accommodating and inviting to your guests.


 

  1. To help you achieve a brighter and cosier vibe in your living room, it’s suggested for you to add carpets.

    Putting carpets will occupy empty floors and make it look less dull than before. And there’s no more comfortable feeling than having a soft mat or carpet to step on, right?
     
  2. When revamping your living room, pay attention also to your curtains. Most especially if you have a small living room, you can do a simple trick with the use of curtains.

    To make your living area look feel larger and look bigger, use floor to ceiling curtains. It won’t just help to make your living room look bigger but it also adds warm colours to the interior.
     
  3. To show your personality, make sure to add some accents with your favourite collections like lamps, vases, figurines, sculptures, or small pieces of artwork.

    Putting accents with such stuff will make your living room more “you” and more inviting. 

Final say: 

And that’s a wrap! See? It doesn’t have to cost you tons of dollar to transform your living room into a brighter and cosier version. 

With these pieces of tips to consider, plus your creativity, you can absolutely achieve a living room that’s more than just relaxing and enticing!
