Treat Yourself: Give Your Living Room a Makeover!
February may be the shortest month of the year, but the long, grey and cold days sometimes make it feel like the longest.
That’s why many people look forward to Valentine’s Day. You may already know how you want to make your favourite people feel loved, but have you considered doing something for yourself? Why not give yourself the gift of a living room makeover?
How to Get Started
The living room is the place in a home that many people relax and enjoy their down time. If yours feels dated or dingy, there are many ways to update it. Here are a few ideas that won’t break the bank:
- Move the furniture around. New furniture arrangement can make your old stuff look new again. Just as importantly, moving the furniture allows you to clean spaces you can’t usually get to, making your living room spotless.
Keep in mind that if you have carpet in your living room, you may be in for a surprise when you move your couch or other furniture. A deep carpet cleaning may be necessary if it’s a few shades lighter where it was previously covered.
- Get a new rug. Nothing brings a space together like an area rug. Many big-box furniture and home decor stores offer great options at affordable prices, but if you’re looking for something unique, scour your local second-hand shops.
Don’t worry if your new-to-you piece looks a little worse for wear. Pointe-Claire Carpet Cleaning are experts at vintage and antique rug restoration. We’ll have your rug looking brand new in no time.
- Deep clean everything. You probably keep your living room tidy and clean the floors regularly, but most people don’t clean their upholstery regularly. If your favourite couch is looking dull and dirty, it’s time for a cleaning.
While some sofas have covers that can be removed and tossed in the washing machine, most upholstery needs a professional cleaning service. Leather furniture may not seem like it gets very dirty, but the material can become dry and brittle, which can lead to cracks. It needs regular love and conditioning to keep it looking supple and beautiful.
