5 Fantastic ways to freshen up your lounge this spring with oak living room furnitureJamie Smith
With signs of spring starting to creep through, many of us will be ready to blow away the cobwebs of winter and embrace the new season with open arms! And if that’s you, we have some fabulous ideas for how to give your living room a new look this Spring. Better yet, without even having to don your scruffs and paint brushes! We’ve got 5 fantastic ideas for using oak living room furniture to give your lounge a much needed revamp for 2017.
Cosy coffee breaks
The lounge is designed to be the perfect place to relax and unwind, especially for a mid-morning coffee break. So, why not make the most of your coffee breaks and relaxation by adding a new oak coffee table to your living room. Coffee tables are brilliant focal points, working well in all sized rooms. These items are not only practical in terms of placing drinks and stacking your magazines and books, but they can be styled up with pretty ornaments, fresh flowers and candles to make them an even more attractive feature. Plus, many designs come with hidden storage element to help keep you living room clutter free!
Add a new dimension
Are you looking to add some new depth and dimension into your living room and really maximise the brighter and longer days? If so, a great idea is to incorporate mirrors into your interior design. Utilising a large oak mirror in any sized room, placed opposite or adjacent to windows or lights will make the room appear more spacious. It will reflect light around the room to give it a fresh and spring-like feel, along with a striking wall feature.
Another great way to give your living room a new look is to add additional storage with oak bookcases. With multiple uses for housing books, ornaments, DVDs and anything else you want to keep off the floor, a beautiful oak bookshelf, be it small or tall, can make a wonderful difference to the look in your lounge. The additional storage is always a welcome in modern homes. In addition, the warm texture of the wood is pleasing on the eye.
Treat your TV to a makeover
The TV is typically a central feature in most homes these days. However, the plethora of wires, remotes and paraphernalia that goes with them can become an eyesore. This is why investing in a new oak TV unit to keep everything neatly stowed away and in its rightful place will work wonders. It will aid in transforming your living room into an organised haven.
A bit on the side
Of course, it doesn’t always have to be large items of oak living room furniture that make an impact. Simply adding side tables or a nest of oak tables to your living room will still make a difference. Not least you’ll always have somewhere to put your cuppa, place your book or the ideal location for a table lamp. Also, they can also be neatly stowed away in a corner, so they’re not impeding on a space either.
