Modern Living Room Ideas to Upgrade Your Lifestyle

Modern Living Room Ideas to Upgrade Your Lifestyle
  • Opening Intro -

    In most homes, there are two rooms where people really meet, the kitchen and the living room.

    These key meeting areas help family and friends to share and bond. It's a place where you can relax without feeling pressure to be something or someone else.


In fact, this is why many Australians prefer open-plan homes, allowing them to communicate regardless of what everyone else is doing.

As such an important room, it is important that you update it regularly.

The following ideas will help your living room look more appealing and more fashionable.

Add A rug

A rug centers the space. It can be almost the same size as the room, or as small as a little circle. But, whatever rug you choose, it is important to go for quality.

For example, this large jute rug is made with premium materials.

It may be created in a neutral color, but this is easier as it allows you to establish your own color palette. By choosing a high-quality rug you’ll have deep piles and the rug will feel soft underfoot. You’ll notice the difference straight away.

Change The Lights

Lighting is key to the feel of any room and the modern approach is more light is better. If possible, open the living room up to more natural light. Should this not be an option, then consider changing the lights.

You need a bright central light, preferably one that can be dimmed to help create the right ambience, and you’ll want focus lights on specific images or items. This will help you feel like you are in an upmarket hotel lounge.

Of course, the right lighting can also make your living space feel larger. Don’t forget to add a lamp or two, they are great for mood lighting and even when doing detail work in the living room.

Mix ‘n’ Match Furniture

This has become a trend in recent years and shows no sign of stopping. The basic idea is to use different chairs or add a coffee table that doesn’t match the other furniture. This becomes a statement piece and is a great conversation starter, as well as allowing you to add your own tastes to the room without having to replace everything.

Create a Feature Wall

Painting one wall a bright color instantly makes it a focal point and a feature of your living space. It’s a technique that many hotels use to draw the eye and make spaces feel larger than they are.

For you, it will also provide an opportunity for the living room to reflect your personality.
