How To Make Your Home More Appealing

They say home is where the heart is, but if you can’t be truly comfortable in your own home, then what good is it? If you don’t feel a sense of relaxation and comfort when you enter your home, maybe it needs a little adjusting. Below, we make several suggestions for turning your boring old living room into a sanctuary that you love spending time in. 

Living Room Décor

The living room should be a place you go to unwind and relax. Your guests should feel a sense of welcoming when they enter the room. To make it so, make sure the TV is surrounded by a comfortable but lovely seating arrangement that includes end tables or a coffee table that are proportionate to the seating itself. 

If you really want to up the impression anty of the room, try adding a round area rug for personality. 

Painting The Walls

The color on the walls should incite peace, warmth, and relaxation. Lighter shades should be the foundation of the room with medium and dark tones used to enhance and call attention to important areas of interest. Consider shades of blue, green, and purple for the most positive impact in the living room. 

Curtains

Don’t forget to add curtains that enhance and complement your color choice for the room. Adding the right curtains can change the rooms entire look and feel. 

Flooring

Choose the right flooring that, again, enhances the overall look and feel of the room. Make sure it coordinates perfectly with the color scheme and vibe you envision for the space. 

Family Portraits

Since the living room is where the family comes together to relax and unwind, the walls should depict photos of the family in all its glory. Use the space to showcase your favorite photos of your loved ones in a celebration of life and love. 

Plants And Flowers

Houseplants add a touch of nature to your home. They help clean the air and give any space a brighter, airier feel. Alternately, flowers bring color and vitality into the home, so be sure to include both in your living room. 

Wall Art

In addition to family portraits, you should also include artful pieces if that’s what you’re into. If you are artistic yourself, don’t be afraid to hang your own work on the living room walls. 

Candles

Candles add warmth to the room, and if they’re scented, they can be a treat for the senses. Use candles throughout the year to create a holiday or season-inspired ambiance 

Ceiling Fan

If you’d like to add a ceiling fan to the living room, don’t be afraid to be creative as there is a plethora of options at any home improvement store. There’s no need for your ceiling fan to be boring!
