In your local cinema where surround sound is usually pretty impressive you may have noticed the walls are heavily curtained. If they aren't they will instead be covered in a specialist non-flat acoustic finish. This would be too expensive for most of us to consider for our living rooms, but by having good quality lined curtains at the windows which you close when using the surround sound, this will considerably reduce echo. Of course most of us wouldn't want to hang curtains against the walls too, like at the cinema, but for large wall areas placing furniture such as a large bookcase will help diffuse and break up the sound. Alternately, hanging a large tapestry or canvas, particularly on the rear wall can considerably reduce sound reverberation and other distracting, resonating noise. Very attractive upholstered panels can also be made and hung to provide your own decorative touch to what is essentially a damper for sound.
If you are working with limited time and money, there are many budget-friendly and easy-to-accomplish ways to get your living room in tip-top condition and ready for house showings. Some suggestions you can consider are: Reduce. Take a look at the space and decide what items are important and what furniture pieces can be removed. Too much furniture crowding your living room, especially if it has limited space, can distract the buyer from being able to visualize how much space the room actually has. Also, put away belongings that are too personal (family pictures, DIY projects or crafts) as these can also distract the buyer; keep in mind that the goal of home staging and sprucing up the living room is to make it fit what buyers' ideas are.
When using pastel colors in the room, it's important to remember that there are plenty of pastel shades. Although you might immediately think of light yellow, green and blue, pastel shades also include pale apricot, light periwinkle and soft sage green. Pastel versions of today's trendiest decorating colors can work perfectly when used for the living room walls. For example, soft sage green walls can serve as the perfect backdrop for your deep sage green furniture pieces. Paint sample strips from your local decorating store can be quite useful when selecting these trendy pastel shades. Simply find a darker color on the paint strip that matches your furniture pieces, living room carpet, or decorating accent pieces. Then, choose the lightest pastel color on the strip for your wall paint.
