How to Create a Comfortable Living Room

by Christine Thomas 09/23/2018

For home sellers, it is important to take a close look at every room in your house, including your living room.

Although your living room has served as a great place to relax and hang out with family members and friends, you'll want to invest time and resources to ensure this space offers a warm, inviting vibe. By doing so, you may be able to enhance your living room's appearance and boost your chances of a quick home sale.

What does it take to revamp a living room? Here are three tips to help home sellers transform an ordinary living room into a comfortable space:

1. Establish a Color Scheme.

Your living room colors ultimately could make or break a homebuyer's impression of your home.

For example, if your living room includes calm, relaxing hues, it may help homebuyers feel at ease the moment they enter. Or, if your living room features bold, vibrant colors, it may add energy to the setting's décor.

Determine a color scheme that offers the ideal mix of style and sophistication. This color scheme should make your living room pop; at the same time, try not to use colors that are overly dramatic or take away from the setting's ambiance.

When in doubt, use warm or cool hues to bolster your living room's appearance. These hues likely will complement any home's décor and will improve your chances of making an unforgettable first impression on homebuyers.

2. Select Stylish Flooring.

Flooring may make a world of difference in how homebuyers view your living room, and for good reason. With the right flooring in place, you'll be able to make your living room a comfortable and enjoyable space, one that will generate plenty of interest from homebuyers.

A solid wood floor may prove to be a great choice in your living room and could give the space a natural look and feel. Comparatively, carpets are soft and durable and come in a wide range of patterns to help you take your living room décor to new heights.

3. Rearrange Your Furniture.

What good is a living room if visitors cannot easily converse with one another? Show homebuyers the true potential of your living room by arranging furniture in a way that promotes conversation.

Pull your living room couch, loveseat and other furniture away from the walls and have them face one another. This will help give your living room an intimate appearance, one that may enable your living space to leave homebuyers with a distinct impression of your residence.

Discovering the best ways to enhance your living room could prove to be time-consuming. Fortunately, hiring a real estate agent may help you streamline the process of transforming your living room's appearance from drab to fab.

A real estate agent will conduct an in-depth home assessment so you can better understand your residence's strengths and weaknesses. Plus, this professional will offer tips to help you improve your living room's appearance in no time at all.

Dedicate the time and resources to bolster your living room's appearance, and you may be able to reap the benefits of a quick home sale.

Originally from Whidbey Island, WA, I moved to Franklin County, Washington MO in 2009. My family and I love the beauty of Missouri and the changing seasons. The people here have deep roots and strong family traditions. It has been wonderful to explore the area and get to know such a wonderful community, and to call this area "home.” My husband and I have bought and sold our own real estate since 1995. When we moved to Franklin County, we used Robeck Realty West, and enjoyed the personal one-on-one approach the smaller brokerage can offer. I have been working with Robeck Realty West since the summer of 2014. I have a strong work ethic, a quick mind, an eye for detail and desire excellence in all that I do. I listen intently to my clients, learning what their unique needs are, how they communicate and the pace they want to move. I am with my clients through the entire process. Whether working with first time buyers or seasoned home owners, I follow through with integrity, respect, timeliness, clear communication, and always have my clients’ best interests in mind.
