So you want to redecorate your lounge and get a better-looking space in your home. You’re far from alone: there’s a redecorating craze going on right now, with more than 70 percent of Americans planning to redecorate this year.
Yet what are the fundamentals of lounge design? How can you create a lounge that’s stylish, homely, and cozy?
In this guide, we’re going to take a look at the key tenets of living room design to help you create a better lounge. Are you ready to learn more? Then let’s get started!
1. Clean and Reorganize
The first thing that you need to do, when you’re redecorating your lounge, you need to clean up your lounge and reorganize. Trying to decorate a cluttered space will lead to frustration and less-than-inspiring results.
Cleaning your lounge is the easy part: all you need to do is vacuum all around your lounge, dust, and wipe away any stains or marks on surfaces and carpets. We’d recommend that you move your furniture and vacuum under there too.
Reorganizing isn’t too difficult either. A little clutter is nice for a cozy vibe, but it can become suffocating fast. You need to keep just the right amount of clutter, then store the rest away in a container that fits your aesthetic. This could be a wicker basket, a plastic container, a wooden chest, or something else!
2. Add a Fresh Lick of Paint
An easy way to create a cozy environment in your lounge is by changing its color scheme. Warm colors are particularly cozy, with burnt orange, warm browns, and burgundy particularly cozy colors.
If you want to make your home look stylish and modern, while keeping a cozy vibe, you could go for an off cream paint instead.
3. Add Scatter Cushions and Rugs
Scatter cushions are a great way to make your home look a lot more lived-in. They add a homely vibe and will make your home feel a lot cozier, plus they’ll also make your sofa more comfortable.
You can make your own scatter cushions if you’re the handy type or you can go for ready-made ones with floral patterns.
Rugs are also a great way to make your home stylish while making your home look cozier. Persian rugs are a particularly great decorative element for the home.
4. Put Up Pictures and Wall Art
Wall art and pictures can both make your house feel more like a home. Putting up pictures of treasured moments or some fantastic art will make you feel happier every time that you look at them.
5. Take Care of Any Other Little Jobs
Redecorating is a great chance to take care of those little chores that have been nagging you for a while. Maybe you need to have a look at your TV antenna, fix a scratch on your sofa cushion, or varnish wooden furniture.
Do it now while you’re in the DIY spirit!
