Invest in key pieces of furniture




One of the most important aspects of your living room is the furniture, and probably more specifically the seating. This can be an expensive thing to replace but it is worthwhile of the investment. A good sofa or seat needs to be comfortable, durable and something you love the look of. Shop around for bargains. You may even find something that has hardly been used online on websites like eBay and really make some savings on your overall spend.




Focus on the flooring




The flooring is an important element for your home, and so you may want to really consider what you want. Wooden flooring can look clean and chic, but if you love to be barefoot it could feel a little cooler and less cozy and inviting, whereas carpet may feel comfortable on your feet and look like an inviting place to be it may not suit the hotter days of summer.

Create a feature wall




If you want to create a feature in your living room then a feature wall could be the answer.

You could even use your favourite prints or pictures in frames and sporadically display them on the one wall. Pinterest.com is full of ways you can create a feature wall in your home.




Have fun with the accessories and decoration




The accessories and the decoration side of things can be a lot of fun. This is when you may be sticking to some sort of theme or colour scheme to bring everything together. Cushions and soft furnishings like blankets can help to create that cozy feeling, whereas candles and scents can really bring a room to life, especially in the evening.




Let the natural light in and fresh air




Finally, the natural light and the fresh air can really help to cleanse a room and help it to feel clean and tidy.

Fresh air can really help with this.
