Optimise your open-plan living room by designing it to flow seamlessly out to an adjacent outdoor space. Consider wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling patio doors – they will extend your room and optimise light. Make the transition from inside to out seamless by colour-matching internal flooring with external decking. Choose a decorating palette that complements the garden and position all your furniture to take in the views so it’s easy to supervise little ones when they are outside.
If your budget allows, go for a complete makeover. Start with a neutral base, selecting all your permanent pieces, such as sofas, chairs and tables, in go-with-anything neutral shades. Then, add in color and style with pillows, framed artwork and accessories. Here, designer Joel Snayd uses a gray-and-white color palette to set the tone for this contemporary farmhouse living room. He brings in the glam with all the pieces that can be switched out later, like the floral-printed stools, colorful bolster pillows and eclectic mix of accessories.
Personalize your living room with a fun saying. For this inexpensive update, look for wood, chipboard or cardboard letters at craft stores, then cover them in patterned scrapbook paper, pretty gift wrap, leftover wallpaper or vintage maps.
If floor space is an issue, consider switching out a traditional swinging door for a sliding barn door. Not only does a barn door save space, its rustic look also adds a fun architectural element to even the most builder-basic living rooms.
