Looking to revamp your east cost home? You’ve come to the right place.
We’re here to help you come up with 5 living room remodel ideas that will help turn your east coast home into a more desirable space.
Create More Space
To help host the parties and the ever-growing extended family holiday get-togethers, consider creating more living room space. If your living room is segmented off from the rest of your home, a remodel where you expand that portion of your home isn’t entirely out of the picture. Yes, remodels that add more space can be expensive, but when they’re done right, they can add tremendous value to your home.
Add New Windows
Opening up your living room and letting more natural light in is another way to rework your east coast home. When it comes to living rooms, there really isn’t such a thing as having too much natural light. That being said, it’s never a bad idea to put in some new and sometimes larger windows to help liven up a room. Windows not only help to make a room feel more inviting because of the natural light, but it can also make the room feel much larger.
Change the Paint and Decor
Paint color says a lot about a home, and so does decor. When life gets busy, painting and decor changes around your home can get lost in the shuffle. If that sounds like your home and you want to do something quick and simple that can impact your living room, add a fresh coat of paint! Consider changing up the color and then finding some new decor or furniture pieces that are appealing to you. This can completely change the feeling of a room and help it to better match your current style.
Remove Walls to Open the Space
A step further in the direction of a total remodel is removing walls to open a space up a bit more. Many living rooms are detached from the kitchen and the dining room by walls that serve no purpose outside of separating those rooms. While it was desirable at one time, many homeowners would now much prefer if the walls were not there and their homes were much more open. For that reason, a common remodel project to improve a living room is removing the walls that close it off.
This project can be expensive, but in many cases will significantly increase the value of your home and allow you to enjoy the space you have. Even large homes with lots of square footage are going to need some improvements to the floor plan from time to time.
Refresh the Doorway or Entrance
Consider refreshing the doorway with some new paint or a new door front. New trim might also be an excellent way to revive a part of your home that can often become somewhat dull. There are lots you can do with a new door, and you’d be surprised how much it can add to your home. Other items that might also help add some life to a doorway are floor mats, rugs, light fixtures, and other decor items.
