Selecting the right furniture is also critical to successful makeover of the living room. For a small living room select compact furniture that can be swept to the sides and complimented with uniquely designed stools. Your aim should be to make the region comfortable and attractive with cozy seating arrangements.

2. Make floors come alive

Everyone loves colorful mats and carpets so why not use these floor decoration details to add character to your living room? For natural vibe you can add vinyl floor tiles in the color of wood to get the natural wooden floor look. If you have not heard of the concept of carpet tiles then explore that with your local flooring expert to see if that can fit into your redecoration budget to add flair to the living room floor.

3. Lighting arrangement

Brightness brought in by strategically placed lighting arrangements play a crucial role in enhance the overall ambience of every living room. Details like floor lamps, ceiling lights, chandeliers, table lamps placed in different corners or around the central seating area can make the modern living room aesthetically presentable like here.

4. Decorate with indoor plants

Plants have the ability to make even the dullest living rooms cheerful and lively. Depending on the furniture of the room choose plants that have exotic colored leaves or unique flowers and which require minimal water. Placed in large ceramic pots or colorful metal containers these plants can keep the environment free of radicals and can also provide interesting topics for conversation.

5. Pep up the ceiling

A designer fan need not be the only ceiling décor for your living room. False ceilings embedded with colorful lights, wooden embellishments and even graphic art can pep up the living room ceiling.

To add sparkle and life to your living room walls they can be embellished with special paint formulations, wall paper, art pieces, decals, murals and several other details. While paintings give a contemporary vibe to the walls, details like wall statutes and antique clocks give it a classic look.
