Besides the kitchen and
bathroom in your Portland Oregon Home,
your living room is the area of your home where you spend the most time.
These steps will help you
improve the look of your living room and get your home ready for sale if you
plan on selling your home in the coming months.
1 – Change Your Living Room Rug
One problem area in the living
room of a typical Portland Oregon Home is the living room rug because it
usually isn’t large enough for the living room area.
To solve this problem you
should purchase a living room rug which is wide enough to cover the entire
width of your living room sofa.
Your living room rug should go
at least six inches under your sofa and all of the seating in your living room
should fit comfortably on your living room rug.
The benefit of choosing a
larger living room rug is that this will make the room feel larger and it will
help your living room to feel more professionally staged.
2 – Choose a Coffee Table Which Fits the Space
If you have a small living
room, and a large coffee table, that’s a “no-no”, because it will make the
living room feel cramped. Choose a
coffee table that is appropriately sized for your living room and choosing a
coffee table which has a glass top since this will add depth and style to your
3 – Go Ahead And Use Colors
Although one of the most
common pieces of advice in decorating is to go with neutral colors in the home,
you shouldn’t be afraid to use color in your Portland Oregon Home.
Choose a color in your living
room that adds warmth to the space.
Depending on the darkness of the color, you can paint all of the walls,
or paint one wall a beautiful darker color to make the space feel inviting.
