- Add A Rug
A rug will as warmth and coziness to the room, making it feel more homely. It can be a feature all on its own or fade into the background depending on your design aesthetic.

- Add Paneling
Whether your design vibe is cottage core or hotel luxe, paneling is back in a major way. You can create the panels yourself with some wooden strips, cut into two long pieces and two shorter pieces to create a rectangle shape. Hot glue the pieces together and secure the rectangles to the wall with nails or more hot glue. Be sure to map out their locations evenly for a professional look. Paint over the paneling and voila! Your living room will have a totally new look.
- Create A TV Unit

If you’re pretty handy with power tools you can either DIY a smart new unit or if you’d prefer you can have a professional contractor make you one. Make sure it has a cupboard underneath to hide all of your cables and TiVo box and then have shelving on either side for styling small décor items such as candles and framed photos. It will instantly elevate the room and give it a more high-end feel.
