Take a careful look at the furnishings in your living room. Determine how you are using the space. Is the furniture in the room what you need? Remove what isn't working and make a list of what would make the space better. Look in other rooms in your home and repurpose items that might work better in the living room. Repurposing items you already have is a wonderful, inexpensive way to add a new look to a space. It can also help to limit the purchases you might need to make.
One can utilize all types of materials to make functional design elements. For my living room I wanted an industrial look, so I went with metal as my core material. I was able to have a metal breakfast bar created for less than three thousand dollars. The bar is covered with a custom piece of glass, and adds a modern pop to any living room.
If you have plans on moving to a new house think about furniture, upholstery and collect as many fabric swatches and samples until you find the ones that you love. A lot of online and brick-and-mortar furniture stores would gladly provide you with fabric samples if you asked them. Start your collecting process at least six months before moving or renovation. Make sure to order more than one set of swatches because many fabrics can be discontinued within six months or even sooner.
