  • Opening Intro -

    Though there are many things in your household you should hire a professional to do, there are many more things you can do yourself to spruce up your space.


Using some simple ways to enhance the aesthetics of your living room will surely put you, your family, and your guests in a whole new headspace. Let’s face it—we could all use a little bit of mental uplifting and adjusting after this year.

Use the Floor

When utilizing the space properly, you can change the entire feeling in a room. Be sure to rid the room of unnecessary clutter.

Purge items that can be pitched or donated. Instead of using bulky lamps, you can use interior wall or ceiling lights or swap your light switches for dimmer switches, allowing you to adjust the level and types of lighting.

Your living room floor should be used for setting up seating, a table or two, and a nice area rug.

This room is meant to serve as a place to entertain guests or relax; it shouldn’t be overwhelmingly busy with wall-to-wall furniture and items.

The pieces you do choose to keep should contribute to the theme, overall look, and of course be useful within the room.

Create a Focal Point

Many people use an accent wall to create a focal point in space. An accent wall is typically a different color than the other three walls.

It may also be a different texture, such as barn wood, planking, paneling, and more. If you want to draw the eye here, carefully consider the look you’re trying to achieve.

Fireplace mantelpieces are an excellent feature to showcase. Taking time to research and explore modern or updated mantels will allow you to create a more functional, beautiful fireplace for the room’s focal point.

The collaboration of décor and furniture surrounding the newly renovated fireplace or accent wall will make a tremendous difference in your living room.

Decorative Touches

Once you’ve decided on your focal point, start building around it. You may be able to find some floating shelves that match or complement your mantel.

Pull the lighting, shelving, décor, furniture, and mantelpiece/fireplace together so they make a visually cohesive setup. Implement a few unique lighting fixtures for your new dimmer switches, and you’ll be set.

With some simple ways to enhance the aesthetics of your living room, you’ll be standing in what looks like a webpage image straight out of a DIY app. Take some time to figure out what you like and what you want the finished product to look like.

Have confidence in your abilities and use outsourcing when you need a little help or reassurance. It’s incredible how different a room can become when you update its furniture, paint, and fixtures, and use the floor to your advantage. Stop waiting; the time is nigh.
