Your front room is, without a doubt, the foremost important room in your house. Spend the evenings with the family and receive guests here. It’s worth going the extra mile with your winter décor to make it warm, comfortable, and inviting. Fortunately, you can give the area a makeover without poking a hole in your wallet. A little effort and a lot of creativity will do. Here are some simple DIY living room remodel ideas that you can try this winter.
Bring Some Color
Winter feels dull and depressing, so bringing a little color into your living room may be the best place to start. If you can handle a DIY painting project, creating an accent wall in a bright hue is a great idea. Infuse the decor with vibrant hues like red, emerald, burgundy, or blue on your accent wall. For those who find the paintings too dirty, wallpaper is a good idea. You can go one step further by creating a collage of family pictures on your accent wall.
Warm-Up with Cozy Textures
The easiest way to decorate your living room for winter is by adding cozy textures everywhere you can. Cover the sofa and chairs with blankets, blankets, and cushions. Choose warm fabrics like faux fur, velvet, or yarn for a great deal of comfort. Switch to padded curtains to keep cool air outside. Add warmth and comfort to your feet with thick rugs to cover the floor.
Fix The Fireplace
The fireplace is the heart of your living room, so it deserves a little DIY too. You may consider upgrading to a traditional small electric fireplace this season. It is easy to install and environmentally friendly because it heats without smoke or fumes. You can even use it as a living room decor item as it looks like a real fireplace. Move your sofa close to it and enjoy the cozy warmth it offers.
Switch It On
Another DIY makeover idea that doesn’t squeeze your pocket is lighting up your living room with candles and colored lights. Candles are inexpensive and add atmosphere to the place. You can choose scented variants to give the room a relaxed and fragrant feel. The fairy lights offer a soft effect and you can hang them without professional help. Just a little work creates magic in the area!
Add green to the decor
While you can limit your outings at this time of year, it is a great time to bring the outdoors into your living room. Buy some houseplants and place them around the room for a green look. Hang shelves and place small cups and containers with herbs on one of the walls to create a vertical garden. To complete the winter look, hang a wreath over the fireplace.
A winter decor for your living room doesn’t have to cost a fortune if you’re ready to explore your DIY skills. You can invest in some affordable items and use the things you have around the house to create an amazing look for your space.
