Living Room Makeover . hi I’m living in London today I’m in Rumson New Jersey and a client’s living room that’s not quite as livable as it should be they love to entertain family and friends so I’ve got some great ideas how to make this room really work for them as you can see this is a great size living room and sections are fantastic in a family room when you want to lounge and hang out but sometimes in a living room where you want to entertain you might be able to find a better way than using just one sectional oftentimes when you’re buying an area rug you can only get a rug that’s so large and.
When you have a big room sometimes what that does is it forces you to lay your furniture app just on the rug so maybe you’re not utilizing all the space in the room as usual the fireplace is always a focal point in a room here you can see that they’ve arranged the sofa so which only about the fire plate but if you turn around and look outside those windows you can see the gorgeous view that they have so I’m going to give them a layout in the room where they can enjoy the fireplace and how beautiful it is but they can also capitalize on that beautiful water view you can see this is a really large room but we just so happen to have only two lamps in it it’s a big space but I’ve got a game plan on how to get it light and bright more and more houses have open floor plans so we’re going to get this living room looking fabulous but we’re still going to be looking at the foyer.
One Day Living Room Makeover
So I’ve decided to make it just as beautiful as the living room yeah this is the perfect antidote to when you have just a regular area right that’s too small you can get some broadloom carpeting it’s used for wall-to-wall carpeting but have them cut and bind it to the size you want for your large room it’s going to give you a custom look and it’s going to give you an expansive feel to your large space what he’s doing is called finding it’s literally just wall-to-wall carpet and he’s binding an edge around it so you can turn water wall carpeting need to a great size area rug yeah it’s a great idea to mix glass table tops and wood table tops we love the coffee table but the glass is going to keep it feeling nice and light Union when you have a high cabinet or a top piece of furniture in a room don’t go without putting a lamp on it but also be sure that you don’t put a lamp that’s too tall because when you walk by you’re going to be staring at a bare lightbulb this lamp works because it’s short inside and the shade is nice and low so there’s a perfect coverage the final touches most fun part we’re almost done huh finally the day’s work is done but you can see how many new pieces we brought in and.
I’m incredibly excited i think this is one of my most dramatic takeovers ever one of the first things you’ll notice is how much larger the room actually seems the other thing was creating a great layout for them that would function while they’re entertaining you can see i created conversation areas this one faces the fireplace that area capitalizes on the view so not every chair has to face each other the most important thing is everybody has a seat I didn’t show up this morning not knowing where everything was going to go in this room so if you can measure your furniture measure your room figure out what’s going to fit where it’s going to help you create the best most effective layout so pen to paper can help you instead of moving all your furniture around all day long if your room is large enough to allow for two sofas make sure you get two different styles you could get a different arm this has a role on one has a track arm you can do different legs style break it up you really don’t want to make it look like you bought a set in this room we started with just two lamps and we have now grown to seven lamps it’s a large room but lamp light in all four corners of the space is really the thing that makes it comfortable and feel inviting because the foyer really is an extension of the living room I just had to give it some love so we move some furniture around put up some lighting sconces and it does have a much better feel to it at the end of the day like this it’s so much fun to think about what this room look like this morning and what it looks like right now I think the family is going to like it an awful lot
