The trendy design of your lounge room may have followed all of the modern design standards at the time you decorated it, but the effects of time will inevitably catch up to all current trends, prompting the need for you to refresh and update your lounge design at some point.
Design trend evolution will eventually mean the interior décor in your lounge room is outdated, to the point where you cannot even pass it off as a classic look anymore, but there are a few easy steps you can take to update the design of your lounge room, when the need arises.
1. Buy with Vision
This is probably much easier said than done, but prevention is always better than cure. If you are right in the middle of decorating your interior living room space, you will be familiar with the fact that home designer product ranges include mirrors, table lamps, accent furniture pieces, design accessories, wall art and décor, which means that there is a lot to consider in an attempt to buy with a vision of the future.
Buying with a vision means that you should acquire décor units that can very easily fit in with different themes and design styles, like table lamps that will allow you to change lamp shades for example, leaving ample leeway for a quick color-scheme upgrade to resemble more modern and trendy looks, as they emerge.
2. Modernize the Existing Décor with a Progressive, Complementary Theme
It's rather amazing what complementary styling can do to your ageing lounge room design. Those dominant design styles, which are getting on in the years, are actually quite easy to overpower and neutralize, with the simple use of fabulous home designer products available at affordable prices. Since home designer product ranges include mirrors, table lamps, accent furniture pieces, design accessories, wall décor and art, one modern and progressive color scheme represented throughout all those décor units can work wonders to modernize and lift the entire lounge room space.
3. Re-arranging Furniture and Décor Units
The rate at which design trends change may be relatively high, but in design terms it is not to the extent that you have to re-do your lounge room every two years or so. Some accent furniture pieces, here and there, could go well with the re-arrangement of the layout plan, giving your existing furniture and décor an instant fresh and progressive look.
4. Add Some Wall Décor and Art
Nothing updates a lounge room quite like modern wall décor and art, with abstract and simple art pieces going well with clean, print-art type of wall décor.
5. Create the Illusion of Expansion
Actual renovation and expansion of your lounge room would very likely prove to be costly, so the next best thing, which can be just as effective, is to create the illusion of added space by including design accessories such as large mirrors and other reflective home designer products. Complement that with a lounge room arrangement that pours more natural light into the room and you instantly create the kind of functionality characteristic of modern interior spaces.
