The first step in giving your living room a makeover is to look at it with new eyes – look at it as if you were seeing it for the first time. You can give your living room a whole new look and feel by upgrading the furniture. From getting a new sofa, some single seaters or swivel chairs, to a new modern coffee table. If the pieces are of sentimental value, you can still keep them but give it an upgrade with a fresh coat of paint or varnish or even reupholstering the fabric to give it a new look.
