Revive Your Space With a Living Room Remodel

Fall is the perfect time to tackle some projects in preparation for the cooler months and the upcoming holidays. Have your home ready to host (and super cozy) in no time. Something as simple as a living room remodel can breathe new life into your home, and achieve the look you want. The living room is one of the most heavily trafficked common areas in your home, so show it some love this fall!

Bring focus back to your fireplace

There’s nothing cozier than sitting by the fire on a cool evening. So when you’re reimagining your living room, consider giving an existing fireplace a real boost to create a beautiful focal point. Something as simple as a new mantel, an accent wall color, or well-placed shelving can truly transform the room. In fact, one of our favorite design choices is to frame a fireplace with floor-to-ceiling shelving. Whether the shelves are floating or boxed in, they add a dramatic flair to the fireplace—as well as plenty of space to show off photos, favorite books and personal mementos. Adding some texture is another great way to alter the focus in your current living space. If you want to add a bit more style to your living room, an accent wall with some additional texture (like a symmetrical pattern with furring strips) is a great way to accentuate your space. It’s the perfect way to be bold—without overwhelming.

Set the tone with a beautiful new color

There are so many options for a new wall color. And since it’s just paint, you can feel free to experiment! Choose something that shows off your unique style and creates a look that reflects your taste. Whether you like strong, bold colors or softer pastels, warm or cool palettes, the right color is out there for you and your home.
