The living room is often the first room that visitors see when they walk through your front door, and the space sets the tone for how guests feel about the rest of your home. Your living room is also a place for entertaining friends and relaxing with family and its design should reflect that. While making the space physically larger would involve expensive remodeling, there are many ways to make the room look bigger that are simple to execute and budget friendly.

Use them in front of your most attractive decor, such as flowers or rich drapes or windows, to reflect beauty and please the eye. Avoid using a mirrored wall, which can look too retro and alter your aesthetic. Instead, rely on one large framed mirror propped on the floor, or group several smaller mirrors on a wall.

To keep the finish looking fresh and new, seal wood countertops with a durable polyurethane and use trivets and cutting boards to protect the surface from heat and marring. If you’re looking for a countertop that develops a rich, blue–toned patina, zinc is a good option. Zinc reacts over time with water, oils and citrus. The reactions are what create the beautiful, rich patina that is the metal’s signature. Zinc countertops are best left in their natural, matte–finish state.

Pot racks don’t have to hang from the ceiling; some can be wall–mounted, like the pegboard wall above. Find places to add shelving for additional storage. A row of narrow shelves, added to a kitchen island, can be perfect for cookbooks. Look for additional places including corners, or over a counter.

Having more counter space adds obvious benefits: more room for meal prep, multiple chefs and can serve as an eating area. Create contrast by using a different material or color for the island counters than you did in the rest of the room. If your regular countertops are white quartz, try black or a dark stained wood for the island. Whether your space lacks a proper dining table or you’re looking to create a more casual bar–seating option, adding low–profile seating to the island is an easy way to increase functionality and make the environment more social for both guests and the cook. Create a breakfast bar or dining table, and leave a counter overhang that offers enough room to tuck the chairs or stools underneath when not in use.

While there are millions of color combinations, some of the more popular include black on bottom and white on top, or bold colors on bottom and neutral on top. You could also contrast colors between wall cabinets and island cabinets. Energize your kitchen by painting your cabinets a bright color, such as emerald, cobalt or golden yellow. Be conscious of how it will coordinate with the wall color and fixtures in your kitchen, as well as the rest of your home. With vibrant cabinets, you’ll want to stick to light and neutral wall colors to keep your space from becoming too dark or busy.
