When you are refreshing the decoration of your home or indeed redecorating completely you may want to have a good, close look at your furniture. If you want to create a modern living room that has all of the hallmarks of the 21st Century then you may need to say goodbye to some cherished pieces of living room furniture.

Easy Tips to Redecorate Your Living Room

Tip 1:

Spread out your furniture It is not the case that you have to get rid of these pieces of furniture just spread then around your home and then you will have the opportunity to concentrate on making your living room look modern.

Tip 2:

Decorate around your TV stand A modern look isn’t always a space-age look so please don’t feel intimidated but if you are thinking about creating a modern look in your living room it is possible that you are doing this either after buying a great looking TV. The first thing to do if that is the case is to decide where you are going to locate your TV stand and what sort of stand you are going to have. In the old days, the centerpiece of any living room was the fireplace a focal point and also the center of any heat source in the room. Happily today in a modern living room we don’t have to rely on a fireplace as either the centerpiece of the room or the heat source and that is because almost all of us gather around the TV and want to be in a good position to watch it, and of course we are warm because of central heating. So once you have decided where you are going to put your TV stand you can start to plan for other furniture. If you are refurnishing it is always a good idea to do this armed with the measurements of sofas, chairs or indeed chaise and other furniture you are going to use in your living room.

Tip 3:

Make a simple plan of your living room It might also be a good idea to make a simple plan of your living room on a piece of paper so that you have an idea of the space you have to play with and then cut out some shapes to represent the furniture that you want to fit into your living room. Then all you have to do is to play around with space and the shapes until you have an idea of where everything could go and then with some help start to arrange the furniture. This planned approach usually means less work in the long run and obviously less effort because furniture is heavy to carry around and arrange.

Tip 4:

Add a sectional sofa set One great way of getting the maximum number of people comfortable sat in view of the TV is to use sectional sofa set, and the added advantage of sectional furniture is that it often comes with the option to buy an Ottoman or two. Ottoman pieces are just great to put your feet on when you are laying back and relaxing whether you are lying on a chaise, a sofa or sofas you’re really can get comfortable.
