When you sit in your living room, do you feel a sense of peace and relaxation, or do you feel something else? Perhaps you feel like something is missing. This isn’t unusual. When people move into a home, they tend to want to get things finished up as quickly as possible. This usually leads to buying things for the sake of it and not because you love them, and you don’t get any sentimental feelings when you sit in this important room.
So, how can you make your living room better? Here are 6 things that will make your living room better fast:
Feng shui might be something you’ve heard of in the past. It might be completely new to you. Whatever the case, it’s worth giving it a chance. The idea is that you arrange your furniture and accessories in a way that is supposed to allow the energy to move more freely through a room and bring you a more positive life, including more abundance and happiness. This might sound like rubbish to you, but it should encourage you to come up with a better lay out, if nothing else.
If you’d rather give feng shui a miss, there are apps you can use to improve your home’s lay out in no time by simply putting in your measurements.
Plants And Flowers
Plants and flowers will make your living room better for a variety of reasons. Not only do they bring more color and life to a room, they also help to purify the air. Not only that, studies on the brain have proven that they make us happier just by looking at them. If you want to feel happier in your living room, adding flowers and plants is the way to go.
Including more texture will stop your home from looking so flat and boring. Incorporate texture with your rugs, throws, cushions, and anything else you can think of. Just make sure you don’t go OTT and end up including so much texture that you make your home a breeding ground for bacteria and allergies.
If you furniture is looking a little worse for wear, it could be time to replace it. This isn’t to say that old furniture can’t work. In fact, in some decor styles, it can look better. It all depends on what look you’re going for. A chesterfield sofa is going to look better in a luxe home, while something more beaten up will look better in a shabby chic decor.
Plenty of Pictures
Pictures of your loved ones, as well as artwork, are extremely important in making a room better. You will personalize the room, and artwork makes us happier, just like flowers do.
Natural lighting is something else that makes us happier, and more productive too. It’s so much better for us than natural light, and we all need some of it each day to be healthy and happy.
