Living Room Renovation
The living room is a place to gather with family and friends or relax on the couch after a long day at work. Whether you prefer modern minimalism or cosy French country style, Selleys can help you achieve outstanding professional results that will make your home a castle.
A new colour scheme can transform your living room. Take stock of your current space and pick out the features you want to accentuate. Neutral walls are a perfect backdrop for highlighting colourful furniture, interesting objects or artwork in your room. A neutral colour palette doesn’t have to be boring, alternate between matt and glossy finishes on walls, doors and window frames to achieve a layered and sophisticated effect.
Experimenting with colour can also be a great way to liven up your living area. Unusual features such as a striped feature wall can update a dated living area, and colour can also be used to add a modern touch to wooden bookshelves, corner tables and window frames.

Restoring or upcycling furniture is another clever way to update your living room. Visit local garage sales, or better yet, clean out your own garage and you might be surprised at what you find. An old coffee table can be revamped with a fresh coat of varnish or a new surface altogether. Re-upholstering chairs and ottomans is another straight forward way to inject new life into older pieces.
Sealing gaps in your window and door frames is a simple and quick DIY solution to prevent droughts around the house. It can also help cut down on energy costs.
