Are You Giving Your Existing Living Room Furniture A New Look?

Has the time come when you can give your living room a face lift? Do you have a decorating plan already? If so, you are probably already in the shopping process. maybe you are stumped as to what you want in your living room re-do. If that's the case, from buying discount upholstery fabrics to selecting other furniture accessories, here are some ideas for you to consider.

Discount Upholstery Fabric - Do you already like the furniture you own? Perhaps you selected it because you liked the basic design of each furniture piece. However, with the passage of time and with normal use, perhaps the fabric is too worn to still look attractive. If that's the case, maybe you have decided to have your furniture reupholstered. Even though reupholstering your furniture might be somewhat costly, it will probably be less expensive than buying totally new furniture.

The good thing is that you don't have to pay full prices on the fabrics you select. Consider looking for discount upholstery fabric. Your town or city more than likely has several stores that carry discounted fabrics that are especially designed for use on furniture pieces. You just need to decide on which fabric you want.

Think of looking in home decorating magazines to get ideas. For example, maybe you'll find a striped design of jewel tone colors. Take that picture with you and the clerk will more than likely be able to tell you if a fabric close to that design is in the store. It might have to be ordered, but it will more than likely still be discounted.

‚ÄčOther Ways To Enhance The Furniture - Besides the reupholstering of your furniture, consider other ways you can enhance it. For example, if you went with the jewel toned striped fabric, think of selecting the same colors that are in the stripes for throw pillows. Or, if you went with a solid color for your upholstery fabric, consider buying a paisley or a floral design for the throw pillows. The pillows don't have to exactly match, but selecting designs that complement each other will just give your living room a prettier look.

Think of other ways you can add interest to the furniture. For example, you may have a gorgeous throw that is now in your bedroom. Would that be a good addition to your living room sofa? Even beautiful scarf on the back of an arm chair can add some pizzazz to your living room.
