Quick and Easy Ways to Update Your Living Room

It’s easy to keep new homes in Argyle TX looking fresh with quick and easy living room updates. Today’s open-concept living areas are central to everyday life. Instead of giving the room a major makeover every few years, try these tips for introducing fresh elements on a regular basis:

  • Bring in potted plants and fresh flowers. Large plants like philodendrons or small trees can add drama. Plants and flowers can create or enhance the tone of the room. Try a crystal vase packed with red roses for an elegant mood or a mason jar full of daisies and baby’s breath to create a casual feel.
  • Rearrange or swap out décor items. Most people change out their décor before and after the winter holidays, but why not do it with each change of seasons? Cycle through a selection of décor items throughout the year to maintain visual interest.
  • Change the wall art several times a year. Rotate your collection between storage and display or from room to room. Add new artwork and photos periodically to keep it fresh.
  • Repaint tired-looking furniture pieces such as end tables, bookcases or the coffee table. Outdated mantels, scuffed doors and woodwork can also benefit from a new coat of paint.
  • Rearrange the furniture. This gets quick results and costs nothing. Try bringing in pieces from other rooms. Keep the layout functional while making it look fresh.
  • Put a new face on your upholstered pieces. Slipcovers are a great way to do this, especially if you have pets or young children. For an even cheaper and quicker alternative, toss a new seasonal throw and a few new pillows onto the sofa. If you decide to have a piece reupholstered, go with a neutral tone for more flexible accessorizing.
  • Freshen the floor. A new area rug can add a trendy note to the room. Remember to coordinate colors in your overall scheme.
  • Try new window treatments. You can dye your existing curtains or put up new ones. Or replace them with blinds, rollup shades or shutters.
