If you have recently had a good look around your living room and have been horrified with what you saw, you’re definitely not alone; many people fall into a routine where they don’t actually ‘see’ their home for what it is, which could be outdated, worn and overcrowded. Here at Sunrise Blinds we have a few pointers to help you revamp your living room and remedy a few design and fashion disasters.
Replace Your Soft Furnishings
That floral pattern that was fashionable at one point needs to be removed from the carpet, sofas and the curtains. It may have been ok to match everything at one point, but now a more minimalist look is far more popular and much more attractive; plain sofas and carpets with a discrete pattern are a much more visually appealing.
When choosing your blinds you should accessorise with the colour the room, if it is relatively plain and simple you could brighten it up with a strong colour or a bold pattern. However, if the room is a bit busier, you should go much simpler with the blinds.
Don’t Over Accessorise
Just because you like something, doesn’t mean you need to buy fifteen of them. Accessories are a great way to add personality and put your stamp on the place, but that doesn’t mean you want everything to look overcrowded and cluttered; a few well-placed cushions, some pretty candles and a couple of photos can look great. Think about where you are going to place the items before you start buying them.
Choose A New Colour Scheme
If it has been a while since you decorated you may want to go completely different and choose a new colour scheme to really give it that complete makeover look. A fresh lick of paint is all it really takes, as this can change the feel of the room dramatically. When choosing your accessories and soft furnishings, you simply have to work around your new chosen colour.
Here at Sunrise Blinds, we offer a range of blinds and curtains in a number of styles, designs and colours for you to choose from – all of which are absolutely perfect for renovating your living room with something fresh and new.
