As homeowners, we all go to great lengths to make sure that our living room is a cosy space. Making an effort to personalise this room can transform its appearance and make it as unique as you are. It doesn’t take much time or money to achieve a personalised finish in your living room as here are some useful tips.
You can make your sofa or chair set the focal point of your living room with bespoke furniture. Despite the numerous models of furniture available in the market, sometimes it can be hard to find a piece that meets every one of your requirements – that’s why tailor made furniture is ideal.
Photos are a common feature in every living room. Why not go a step further and make your living room stand out by creating a picture wall? If the overall style of your home is classic, you could go for sepia or black and white framed pictures, whereas if your style is contemporary, you can use colour photographs or even a photo collage with your favourite snapshots. Mix and match frame types and photo sizes for a bolder look.
Artwork does not have to be prohibitively expensive. Make the most of your holidays abroad or in other parts of the country to visit local artisan markets or craft fairs. You may also be surprised at what you can find in second-hand stores and charity shops. Prints, drawings, framed fabrics and carvings are some of the pieces that you can use to make your living room truly unique.
For a personal touch, consider stencilling your living room walls. There are literally hundreds of designs available online, and you can also design your own. Floral motives, landscapes, memorable quotes, city skylines, oriental designs and cartoon-inspired motives are some ideas that you might want to consider.
DIY Window Treatments
A couple of wooden dowels, your favourite fabric, ribbon, and some Velcro are all you need to make your windows stand out. Some window treatments don’t even require sewing, so this is a project open to everyone. Always choose two-tone or patterned fabrics in colours that either contrast or complement the decoration of the living room.
