One of the easiest ways to change the look of a room is to reposition the furniture. Move pieces around to get a different perspective of how the pieces can work in the space. Take into account traffic flow and how you use the room to best determine how to place the furnishings. After you are satisfied with the furniture placement, adjust your existing wall hangings and accessories to compliment the new layout. Moving things around can dramatically change the look of the room, without costing you a dime!
Accents & Highlighting- Draw attention to a fireplace with overhead recessed lighting or track lighting fixtures. Alternatively, wall sconces on either side of the mantel will both emphasize the fireplace and offer more lighting for the entire room. An up light situated behind the object can highlight pedestals, figurines or floor plants. Add additional layers with multi-tiered hanging lamps or wall/ceiling wash lights. Accent lights placed in alcoves, corners or closed in spaces will accentuate a specific area or piece and give the room a larger appearance.
Fortunately, you don't have to start from scratch in order to make your living room a living entity. The furniture already placed in your living room, if seems ugly, can be refurbished or even re-arranged to give a brand new look to the room. Living room can be compartmentalized by some strategic measures that may include separation by cabinets, shelves or even clever flooring and different paint patterns for the walls. The idea is to have optimum utilization of space in the living room.
