Living room makeovers before and after ideas for your home

Take a look at these before and after living room ideas if you’re planning to redesign your space

If you wake up to a dull and boring living room every day or if you return to a cluttered one, you know in your gut that it’s time for some significant change. No, don’t change the entire house! All you need to do is change the look of the living room. After all, this is where you entertain your guests or get together to recharge with your family. So, naturally, it should look and feel homier and inviting. There are fixes for every budget, style and taste. Here are 5 incredible before and after living room ideas for a makeover that we’ve handpicked for you.

Living Room Before And After Transformed From Gloomy To Welcoming

This living room has substantial space, but it’s dark. The old dark-coloured furniture and heavy blackout drapes do not help the case. Its owners came to us for some major help in enlivening the space. It needed more than a fresh coat of paint. We retained the unique false ceiling with multiple parallel built-in lights but made the lights larger. It immediately brightened up the space. We also made a statement wall, used white marble as the backdrop for the TV unit, and replaced the heavy drapes with sheer curtains. The brown sectional and long modular TV unit, floating shelf, modular coffee table, and plush grey rug completed the whole look of the living room.

A Living Room Makeover Before And After That Maximises Available Space

As soon as the owners saw the property while moving in, they knew they had to do something about the yellow wall. The otherwise spacious and airy living room required character. To give the yellow wall a new and more tasteful look, we wallpapered it. It’s a cheap and easy way to give any space a complete makeover. So, we used two textured wallpapers in blue and grey to cover up the yellow tiled wall. We also replaced the existing TV unit with a modular, customised piece that perfectly combines closed drawers and open shelves. We built a gallery wall for the TV with some floating shelves. The modular storage unit by the window doubles as extra seating for the living room. We placed the plush 4-seater sofa side by side to prevent the small living space from overcrowding.

Before And After Living Room Idea That Upgrades Bare Minimum To Total Stunner

This living room in a 430 sq ft studio apartment needed major transformation. But being a rental space, we were not allowed to do any structural changes. Despite that, we gave the living space a complete makeover. We repainted the walls to off-white and cement-textured grey. We brought in a modular chest of drawers. It works as excellent additional storage and doubles as a shelf to display some decorative vases and items. A big blue rug with a grey 3-seater sofa, a large pouffe and a stylish ornate coffee table transformed this nook of the studio. A few paintings, some throw pillows, blankets and a chic floor lamp completed the look. Now, this apartment looks all the warmer and more inviting.

Living Room Makeovers Before And After For A Bland To Fab Facelift

Living room makeovers are not as hard as you might think. But sometimes, it can need something extra — more than a fresh coat of paint and repositioning of furniture. Here’s how we gave this living room a new stylish look. The home had great bones. So, we left the existing structure of the living room untouched. We covered the wall behind the sofa with exposed-brick printed wallpaper. The owners got rid of the rented sofas and centre table and decided to invest in new modular furniture. So, we brought in our U-shaped sectional sofa with a glass-top coffee table. But the major change was the TV unit. Our designers customised it with a combination of closed drawers and open shelves and a whole new backdrop for the flatscreen TV. We completed the living room’s look with accent lights, a decorative wall clock, showpieces and tastefully-chosen soft furnishing.

Before And After Living Room Idea That Perfectly Optimises A Large Space

When it comes to urban home interiors, a room being too big is rarely a complaint. This massive living room in a premium 3BHK apartment is every homeowner’s dream. It has two enormous picture windows overlooking greenery and a solid hardwood floor. All this living room needed was some carefully chosen and tasteful interior designs. The star of the newly renovated room is the blue velvet sectional sofa, contrasted by two yellow wingback chairs that are cosy and fill the big space substantially. The combination works as a perfect visual anchor to the room’s overall golden colour scheme. A grand vintage centre table and a side table between the chairs give the elegant space a regal look. A round dining table separates the large living room into a seating area and a dining area.
