Carefully determine what should be replaced due to wear or poor function. Adding one new item can make a large impact on the look and function of the space. For example, adding a new coffee table with storage drawers where there had previously been a beat up table.

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.

Choose something inviting, bold, or creative according to your room decor and taste, but let it be something inherently decorative. Many homeowners enjoy installing chandeliers or pendant and hanging fixtures in the living and sitting room for this reason.
