If you’re in the mood for a new vibe to your living room during the winter 2019 period, then it’s important to keep the season in mind. It’s colder, darker and you will likely be feeling the merriment that the Holiday Season often brings. So you need to make sure your sprucing up of any space is done to match this overall feeling.
With that in mind, here are the best ways that you can work to spruce up your living room today!
Choose Colour Wisely
Colour is a powerful tool when it comes to changing the temperature of a room, believe it or not! Colder colours like blues can easily make your winter feel that much chillier, likewise a nice plum red can help you to feel the special warmth during the period instead. Depending on the feeling of your room overall, you may want to consider actively colouring it in a way that keeps the warmth trapped this winter period.
Try colours like red, yellow and orange for that sense of warmth during this brrrrracing time of year.
Make Sure It’s Warm
Not only should your colour make the room feel warm, you need to actually make sure the space is warm in of itself! And this doesn’t just mean sticking the heating on.
Try to manage drafts in the space as much as possible, using draft excluders and the like in order to manage this effectively during the colder periods. Also, make sure that you open the curtains during the day to ensure the natural warmth of the sun is able to get through into your space as much as possible. If wooden flooring is dominant in your living room, then invest in a rug which will make the space feel that little bit warmer.
Invest in Blankets
The winter is cold and the nights are dark, so why wouldn’t you invest in a number of good blankets to improve this scenario? Picture this: cuddled up on the sofa, mug of hot chocolate in hand and a pile of blankets to keep you warm. What could be better during the winter period? Absolutely nothing.
Use Seasonal Decorations
Deers are prevalent decoration pieces during the winter months, it has to be said. Investing in such seasonal pieces might seem like a once a year folly, but it can really spruce up your living room during this otherwise quite dull period of the year. Make sure that you don’t go overboard with the tacky decorations (Santa mooning the room), but keep the look tasteful and elegant.
Invest in Good Furniture
Lastly, the easiest way to improve your sprucing up of your living room is to invest in good contemporary furniture. This can be fairly simple, as you need the basic furniture pieces in any living space like a sofa, lamp and coffee table. However, to spruce up to something extra special it can be important to make sure you invest wisely. Choose things such as luxury velvet furniture…
