Easy Revamping

The Living Room

It seems that people are gravitating towards the idea of actually using the living room for what they were named for, living! Avoiding the use of technology, living rooms are now to be used for family bonding and spending quality time with your loved ones, instead of just using your phones and gadgets in there with no family interaction ever happening.

The minimalist approach has gone out the window and so last year. You’re looking at entirely decorated living rooms; nothing left bare. Lots of furniture, lots of decoration items, art on the walls and you’ve got yourself a living room right out of the decor magazines you read daily.

Also, since you will be using your living room for more family activities than just sitting on couches, designers are using more durable, outdoor fabrics for indoor furniture, rather than sticking to the old structures.

The Washroom

Designers have started incorporating new ideas into washrooms as well. Separate toilet bidets are now becoming increasingly common. Another thing that has become very popular is large bathroom mirrors that stand out. Wallpapers in washrooms with bold patterns and colours give a very glamorous look. Big ornaments on the walls that stand out are entirely in.
