What are some other ways to modernize my living room?

Replace your sofas with modular ones

Sofas are the most expensive piece of furniture in a living room and they also take up a lot of space. Modular modern sofas are perfect if you want to modernize your living room without breaking the bank. They're a great alternative to traditional sofas because they're customizable and take up less space.

Hang some art

Hanging some art on the walls is another great way to modernize your living room decor without spending too much money on it. There are plenty of beautiful prints available in stores that you can choose from and they usually don’t cost more than $50 per piece.

Freshen up the walls with new paint color

The living room is the place where we relax and spend time with friends and family. It is the heart of our home. That is why it needs to be welcoming, comfortable and inviting.

Painting the walls with a fresh color can make a huge difference in how your living room looks like. It will give you a new perspective on your home decorating project. A new color will make your space feel refreshed and more vibrant, while also giving it an updated look that reflects your personality.

Layer up some rugs in your living room

The first modern rug you want to layer up is a large, fluffy rug that will be the focal point of the room. This rug should be placed in front of a sofa or a fireplace. You can also place this rug in front of a window where there's plenty of light coming in to create a cozy atmosphere.

Next, add an accent rug to the room that will add color and pattern to your space. If you're going for a more modern look, then you'll want to use an abstract design or geometric pattern that complements your other furniture pieces. 

If you're going for more rustic vibes, then try using a tribal print or animal print rug with earthy colors like browns and greens.

Go green

Plants are a no-brainer addition to your modern living room design toolkit.

They can make a dull room seem more vibrant and alive. It's important to choose the right plant for the right environment, but in general, most plants will thrive in rooms with plenty of sunlight and temperature control.

Plants and greenery can make your living room feel more alive and inviting. They also help purify the air, which is a great benefit for people who suffer from allergies or asthma.

There are usually some great gardening outlets locally across the States around where you can get low-cost, high-quality greenery for your modern living room.

Final tips

  • Change your furniture: This is one of the most important steps of all. It can dramatically change the feel of your room and make it more inviting and comfortable. So if you have an old couch that's not very comfortable, it's time to replace it with something new and modern.
  • Add some color: If you're tired of the all black or all white look, add some color with throw pillows or a rug for instance. You can also add color by painting one wall a bright hue like red or yellow and letting the other walls be neutral colors like white or gray.
  • Rearrange your existing furniture every so often so it feels fresh and new. If you've lived in the same place for awhile, it can get frustrating to look at your furniture. Things can get messy and cluttered over time. But there are ways to spruce up the room with minimal effort. Simply rearranging your furniture every so often is one of them.
