Has the time come to revamp your living room? If the space is looking a little old and worn, it’s definitely time for an update. Your lounge is, without doubt, the most used room in your home. It’s the place where you relax at the end of a long day with a glass of wine and a good book. It’s the room that you use to socialize with friends. Your lounge is probably the most popular room in your home. That’s why ensuring it’s a beautiful space is so important.
This year, minimalistic home decor is the in thing, so if you want to create a stylish space, go contemporary. The great thing about contemporary home decor is that because it’s made up of neutrals, it is easy to revamp should you decide you want a change. For all the ins and outs to giving your lounge a sleek, minimalistic vibe, keep reading. You’re about to be wowed by just how simple making over your living room can be.
Go neutral with the walls
For a contemporary space, neutral walls is an absolute must. While you could decorate in beige, cream or gray, your best bet is to opt for white. A lot of us make the mistake of thinking that white is too cold for a living room. However, that’s not the case. How warm and inviting your lounge feels, comes down to the way that it’s decorated and styled, not the wall color.
To make the process of decorating quicker, it’s a good idea to hire a contractor to deal with the painting for you. While this may make your living room update more expensive, by hiring a professional, you can ensure that the painting is done to a high standard. In a minimalist, sleek space, there’s nothing worse than a sloppy paint job.
Get the flooring spot on
When it comes to the flooring, your best bet is to opt for hard flooring. If you have a read of this guide to tile trends, it tells you all about the best hard flooring options. While wood can look lovely, in a contemporary room, tile looks even better. Because of how sleek and shiny tile flooring is, it opens up the space, giving it the perfect look.
The great thing about tile flooring is that it comes in so many different designs. So whatever you’re after, there should be something suitable. If you want to warm the space up, you can always add a fluffy faux fur rug. These are ideal for adding luxury and warmth to the space.
Add accents of color
While contemporary spaces tend to be mostly neutral, adding accents of color can work well. If you’re happy with a space that’s completely neutral, then stick to accessories in neutral shades. However, if you like color, adding accents around the room can work well.
The best way to do this is by choosing a color, such as burgundy, to use and then selecting accessories for the space. From pillows and throws to candles and lamps, adding color doesn’t have to be difficult. Be choosy about the colors you add, and take your time selecting the accent pieces.
There you have it, everything that you need to know about creating a sleek, minimalistic lounge.
