Little Things You Can Do To Improve Your Living Room

December 3, 2020

The living room is arguably one of the most important spaces in your home. It's the go-to area for entertaining guests and catching up with visitors, and also, the place where you and your family gather for some relaxing time together. Hence, it's only natural to want your living room to look and feel it’s absolute best.

If you're tired of your current living room situation, perhaps you can shake things up with a little makeover. Here, we've got some tips and tricks to give your living room a fancier flair that'll dress up your space without compromising that liveable feel.

1. Update your lighting

Updating lighting fixtures can be a great way to help improve the overall aesthetic of your living room, as well as giving a sense of elegance and comfort.

When choosing for suitable lighting, think about the different zones of your living room and choose light sources that are geared towards creating a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. For instance, you'll need a standing or table lamp over an armchair for reading; a dimmable central pendant light for those occasions when you want the room brightly lit; and accent lighting to highlight your living room’s decor. Pendant lighting is also another great option to consider when looking to add lighting that doubles as a statement piece.

2. Invest in practical home accessories

Speaking of lighting, your living room’s light switches could use a little upgrade as well! You can take the light switch concept to a whole new level by replacing your regular light switch plate with the Schneider Electric AvatarOn light switch plate that comes with a built-in key holder. Now, you’ll have a special spot to hold your keys whilst keeping your living room neat and organised.

Besides the keyholder, the Schneider Electric AvatarOn also comes with a USB charging socket and mobile phone holder so you can leave your smartphone or other electronic devices charged in one neat area.

For added convenience, you can also purchase the Schneider Electric AvatarOn switches with an LED indicator feature. Unobtrusive in the daytime, the LED locators glow with a soft luminescent, indicating the exact location of your light switch when you enter the room in the dark.

3. Set the mood with colour

Though all-white walls are still popular, introducing colours can instantly make your living room feel inherently more comfortable and intimate, creating a relaxing space for you to entertain in and use to your advantage.

If you’re dealing with a small space that doesn’t get much light, you can tune your living room with rich and indulgent dark colour, such as high-gloss black, navy blue or emerald green to catch the light and make your room look more elegant. However, if dark colours are not your cup of tea, you can opt for light and neutral colour for your walls and add pops of colour through soft furnishings, accessories or artwork.

4. Display a statement art

One the simplest way to instantly create visual intrigue and add more personality to your living room is by displaying a statement art on one of your living room walls.

Besides the walls, you can also inject your room with a unique element using the AvatarOn light switch plates. There are limitless ways to air your creativity in this way; whether it's your children's artwork, your own, or a portrait of your pets, you can have your favourite designs or photos printed onto your AvatarOn light switch plates via the Photobook app. Your designs will be printed in high-resolution digital technology, ensuring clear details and long-lasting colours.

Another thing to love; the AvatarOn light switch features an innovative snap-on cover that allows you to remove the switch plate with one-hand removal, so you can replace it with a different design as often as you like!

5. Incorporate lush layers

Indoor plants play an important role in curating good Feng Shui in any living room because they add 'life force energy' to the space. Indoor plants can also help to purify the air and give some texture to the room with the leafy patterns. Whether you only have the space for a small, low-maintenance succulent, or if you'd rather invest time and energy into a larger fiddle-leaf fig tree, consider adding a plant or two to make your living room feel more put together.

6. Rearrange your furniture

The whole purpose of a living room is to gather friends and family for socializing so it only makes sense that your living room’s seating should be positioned in a way that encourages interaction. For instance, you can position two sofas to face each other, or group your chairs and sofas together to create a cosy conversation area.
