Painting the floor is the simplest way of giving a make-over to the living room.

Alternatively, you can go for free-hand design or stencil design for a beautiful looking floor. You can stain the concrete for a wooden effect or a natural stone effect. Painting the living room is a huge investment. Not only you will spend money on it, you will also put your reputation on the line. If you commit a mistake, you will end up ruining the look of the room. So, make sure that you consider several ideas and talk to different painting contractors before making a decision.
The colors of the rooms in your home are a direct reflection of your personality. While most of us may not spend a lot of time thinking about room color, it affects us every day.

Certain colors (or groups of colors) tend to get a similar reaction from most people; the variations come from the shades or tones used. This is why it’s so important to choose colors wisely when it comes to decorating.
