Give Your Living Room a New Lease of Life


Mummy says…

‘When it comes to important rooms in the home, there are a number of rooms that tend to be used more often and by more people than others. One of the most important rooms in any home is the living room, which is a place that should be comfortable, attractive and conducive to relaxation. With this in mind it is important to make sure that you have the right decor and furniture in your living room so that you can achieve this.

There are various improvements that you can make to your living room in order to make it perfectly suited to your needs. With the right choices you can also make this a more practical room, making it perfect for modern day living.

Some of the changes you can make to your living room:

We all have different tastes and preferences when it comes to aesthetics, so you need to

think about the desired result you want when it comes to your living room. Some of the key

things that you can look at in order to make improvements include:

Lighting: Having the right lighting in the living room is very important, as this can affect

everything from the ambiance to the practicality of the room. Of course, it is important to

ensure that you have main ceiling lights and you can add a touch of luxury with elaborate

pendants to inject some glamour into the room. However, you should also look at investing in

some wall lights if you don’t already have them, as this can help to create a far more relaxed

mood when you are kicking back in the evening and simply want to chill out. You can get

some great deals and excellent choice from specialist retailers such as the Lighting

Superstore, so creating the perfect atmosphere in your living room should be simple.


Furniture: It is also important to ensure you have the right furniture in your living room. For

example, having a sturdy, high quality yet attractive coffee table can make all the difference

to the look of your room. Another key item of furniture is the sofa, which is the ideal place to

relax in your living room so it is worth considering investing in one that offers quality and

comfort as well as aesthetic appeal. You can even consider investing in an

easy to pull out sofa bed from Bedstar for the living room, as this provides you with the added bonus of being

able to convert the room into a guest room if you have anyone over to stay. Bedstar offers

great deals on attractive sofa beds that are perfect for homes with limited space where a

guest room isn’t a viable option, and you can choose from a range of styles to find the perfect

one for your home.


The decor: The look and feel of your living room can be adversely affected if your wallpaper

or painted walls look worn and tired. You also need to ensure you choose the right colours to

make the room feel warmer and more welcoming. You can therefore enhance the room

simply by refreshing the paintwork or wallpaper and perhaps looking at changing the existing

colours to create a cosier atmosphere in the room.


With the right changes in your living room, you can enjoy having a comfortable, functional

and attractive room in which you can truly kick back and chill out after a hard day’s work.

  2. Have you ever noticed that all British living rooms seem to have a sofa and two chairs grouped around a fireplace? An American friend pounted this out to me recently and asked why we did it. It never occured to me that every nationality didn’t do the same.
