5 Beautiful Living Room Ideas (With Pictures)
Need some inspiration for a modern remodel? Each of these modern living room remodel ideas represents an approach our team might take on homes we renovate in our own business. We hope they help as you brainstorm strategies to update this oh-so-important part of your home!
Leaving some brick exposed on one or more walls is a FANTASTIC way to bring a contemporary vibe to any room. This move instantly livens up a space and invokes the “bohemian city loft” feel that has remained in such high demand for so long. For an added bonus, consider doing so on a wall that has an entryway, as we did in the image below.
Don’t forget to spice up those walls! When you’re looking for living room wall decorating ideas, you can’t go wrong with modern canvas art. Simple yet effective, wall art can lend an exciting burst of energy to any living room remodel. No need to go overboard though — it’s better to have one or two pieces that fit the space well then a bunch of low-quality prints.
Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring
Carpeted living rooms are out. Hard surfaces are in. Installing luxury vinyl plank flooring is probably at the top of our game-changing value adds when it comes to living room remodel ideas. That’s because it adds the touch of class that can truly pull an entire room together without totally breaking the bank. It’s not typically as expensive as some of the pricier luxury flooring options like teak or tigerwood, but it can look just as good. Moreover, luxury vinyl plank tiles are more durable than wood. Unlike wood flooring, luxury vinyl is not susceptible to water. Its scratch-resistant character also makes it a particularly great choice for homes with fun-loving dogs and/or rambunctious kiddos.
Brighten It Up!
We know you’re used to hearing this from us, but it has to be said again: “Bright” is the name of the game when it comes to modern remodel projects!” It’s true for basement renovations. It’s true for bedroom renovations. And it’s certainly true here for your contemporary living room remodeling goals.
Bright and open spaces are a warm invitation to guests. They also make the room feel much more livable in general. If it makes sense for the space, consider adding some artificial lighting along with a window or two for a healthy dose of natural light.
Glass Coffee Tables
For an easy modern accessory, consider picking up a glass coffee table or two for your space. This is one of the most inexpensive yet effective living room remodel ideas for homes. Keeping things simple is not a bad thing here. Glass tables don’t tend to be a focal point, but they do add an air of sophistication. They can also fill out a space nicely without imposing too much on the overall aesthetic.
