Living Room / June 7, 2018 /
More extensive living room remodeling projects may include structural changes. These can include changing windows and doors, replacing walls with ceiling beams to create an open concept, and refacing or replacing fireplaces. If your project includes these in-depth changes, you will need to research local building codes and permitting requirements. Changes that include electrical or plumbing work may require working with a licensed professional under special permits. If your interior changes impact your exterior design, also check with your homeowners association to ensure you are staying within regulations.
Living room wall colors should work with furniture and decor, not fight against them. In this colorful living room, pale sage walls act almost as a neutral background for other, more vibrant colors. A patterned area rug combines orange, pink, purple, green, and blue and defines the color palette in this room, which helps the other accents and furniture pieces feel unified. One large piece of art on the walls adds interest to the busy space without overwhelming the palette.
