Contemporary Living Room Design - Pikalily Blog

Living rooms are often the centrepiece of a home. They’re where we entertain guests, watch TV, and relax after a long day. If your living room is starting to feel stale or outdated, don’t worry – you can give it a facelift without spending a lot of money! In this blog post, we will discuss some simple ways to give your living room an update without overhauling the entire space.

By changing just a few key elements, you can create an entirely new look and feel for your living room. So read on for tips on giving your living room a facelift!


Flooring is one of the first things people notice when they enter a room, so it’s an excellent place to start if you’re looking to give your living room an update. If your floors look worn or dated, consider replacing them with new hardwood floors or carpeting.

This will immediately provide the room with a fresh, new look. Another option is to refinish your existing floors. This can be a more cost-effective option and will still give your living room a new look.


Your furniture is another crucial element in giving your living room a facelift. If you have old, worn-out furniture, it might be time to replace it with something new. Sofas and couches are often the focal points of a living room, so if yours looks dated or uncomfortable, it’s time for an upgrade.

Again, you don’t have to spend a lot of money on new furniture – plenty of affordable options will still give your living room a fresh, new look.


Lighting can also play a significant role in giving your living room a facelift. If you have old, outdated light fixtures, consider replacing them with something new.

This can make a big difference in the look and feel of your living room. You might also want to add additional lighting, such as lamps or sconces, to create a more inviting and relaxing space.

Cabinets and Shelving

If your living room has built-in cabinets or shelving, this is another area where you can make some changes to give the room a new look. If your cabinets look worn or dated, consider painting them or replacing the hardware.

This will provide them with an instant update. You might also want to add new shelves or storage solutions to help declutter and organise your living space.

Plants and Decor

Finally, don’t forget about the more minor details! Plants and decor can also play a significant role in giving your living room a facelift. Adding some fresh plants is an easy way to brighten up any space.

And if you’re looking for new decor, try shopping at thrift stores or online consignment shops – you can find some fantastic deals on unique pieces that will make your living room stand out.

Making just a few simple changes can give your living room a new look and feel. So don’t be afraid to experiment – you might be surprised at how easy it is to give your space a facelift!
