You can apply a few decorating tricks to make your living room appear more luxurious without breaking the bank. Hang your curtains as close to the ceiling as possible, creating the illusion that your ceilings are higher. Another strategy is to minimise the clutter and pare down to a few interesting pieces. Having large paintings, sculptures, or other artworks dominate the space can also give your living room a more luxurious feel.
That depends on the complexity of your living room design. Replacing a few furniture pieces and adding a fresh coat of paint should only take a couple of days. But if your design involves knocking down a wall or two, rerouting electrical wiring and other complicated tasks in a bigger living room, that can take a couple of weeks. You can ask your Tasker to give you a better estimate of how long the job will take.
This is a classic rule in decorating to help designers create a colour palette for just about any space. It means that one dominant colour should take up 60% of the room, a secondary colour or texture takes 30% of the room, and the final 10% must consist of accents or accessories in another colour. This timeless rule can ensure your colour palette's cohesiveness and avoid turning your space into a confusing jumble of colours.
The colours that can make a living room, or any room for that matter, look bigger are bright and soft tones. You can paint walls off-white or lighter tones of blue, yellow or green. Brighter rooms appear larger and more inviting, and the opposite is true for darker colours. Stay away from black and any dark shades. Another trick to make rooms look bigger is to paint the mouldings or wall trim lighter than the walls.
While some homeowners make their TV and entertainment devices central to their living room, the more essential items are a sofa, coffee table, chairs, or recliners to entertain guests. Curtains are another necessary fixture to allow privacy and control the entry of sunlight. An area rug can be an essential part of your living room as it absorbs ambient sounds and footfalls. You can include other accessories like display shelves, paintings, small sculpture and other pieces of art.
There are many ways to liven up bare living room walls. You can hang large paintings or large photos or framed posters of your favourite films. Hanging plates, mirrors or adding display shelves with art pieces, antique or collectable items is another option. You can hire someone to paint a mural for you. There’s a dizzying number of ways to decorate, so we suggest you book a designer on our platform to help you jazz up your living room.
Living room designer services include all the necessary activities to provide you with a comfortable living room. It should look aesthetically pleasing while suiting your needs, tastes, and budget. Living room designers can redesign an existing living room or design a new one. They can make sure that the design complies with building codes, safety regulations and relevant industry standards.
Your hired living room designer can provide you with a design-only service where they turn over the design to you, and you hire a team of builders to make the plan a reality. Your designer can also work for you under a full-service contract to see the project from design to completion.
Your hired living room designer starts the service by inspecting the space, regardless of whether it’s a bare space that needs a new design or an existing living room that needs renovation. They can take measurements and note the materials, layout, colour palette, fixtures, and furniture when appropriate. Your designer can also refer to your living room's blueprints to see the layout of any electrical wiring or pipes.
Once they are familiar with the space, your designer can make the new design and layout to maximise function and safe movement in your living room. They can design every part of the living room, from the walls, doorways, flooring, and even the living room ceiling design. They can recommend the paint, wallpaper, area rugs, chairs, tables and couches.
Your Tasker can work with you to make a design that suits your tastes, needs and budget. They can design the space to meet all your requirements while complying with building codes, safety standards and industry best practices. Your designer may present more than one option for you to choose from, and they start on work only after you’ve chosen.
After you’ve chosen a design, your Tasker can proceed with implementation. They can get all the needed materials, tools, furniture, fixtures, accessories, and hire a construction team. Your designer may also hire a living room decorator to assist them.
Your Tasker can work as your project manager and implement your chosen living room interior design. They can prepare a timetable detailing each task and their deadlines. Once you approve the timetable, they proceed with the work. Your Tasker can occasionally inspect the site, ensure that the job is done right and on schedule, and update you on the progress. They can check each build's quality and redo the work if they find it not up to standards.
After your living room’s finished, you can get someone to clean up the site. If your redesigned living room opens up to any outdoor spaces, why not hire someone to make sure your living room has a good view?
