Redecorate Any Room

Many homeowners refresh their living quarters by adding touches of contemporary style. However, for some people this can be very challenging, especially when trying to incorporate existing furniture, flooring or colors. Here are several small changes you can do to any room that will help create a new level of sophistication and style.

Contrasting Colors

A popular trend in contemporary decorating is to incorporate various, contrasting colors to create a fun and inviting living space. Many furniture stores today offer an array of pillows and rugs that can add a pop of color to an otherwise neutral-toned room.

An updated spin on the trend of contrasting accents is to pick unexpected color combinations. Instead of the standard black and white, pair a black sofa with a vibrant red throw pillow. Teasing the eye with a contrasting and complimentary color combination can refresh an entire room.

Unique Accent Pieces

An easy way to inject a new look into an old room is the addition of a unique accent piece. Most decorating consultants suggest replacing a traditional wooden coffee table with a plush leather bench or overstuffed, modern ottoman. Not only will this provide functional multi-purpose seating, but it will also add a contemporary flair. Additionally, replacing a piece of traditional artwork with a geometric-shaped mirror can create a focal point to an otherwise standard living space.

Focus On Lighting

Lighting is often an afterthought when redecorating a living area. However, lighting plays a vital role in shaping the style and mood of a room. Furniture stores are now offering consultation on lighting options along with furniture selection and layout recommendations, and you should always ask for help and advice if you feel you need it.

Instead of a standard table lamp placed on an end table, explore unique lighting options such as a modern floor arch lamp. Additionally, lighting fixtures in a brushed nickel finish can give a room a futuristic touch and hint of elegance.

Contemporary Seating

There are many comfortable and functional seating options to replace an outdated overstuffed recliner. Lose the La-Z-Boy for a more contemporary piece to immediately create a sophisticated, modern living space. A selection of comfortable, yet stylish chaise lounges, or swivel-based chrome-finished accent chairs can be found at many Tampa furniture stores. Surprisingly, a living room can be transformed by simply adding an unexpected and modern piece to a standard furniture layout.
