Your living room: the room in your DFW home where you hang with your family, entertain guests, watch TV, supervise homework, play on your laptop, kick back and relax . . . in other words, the center of your home’s universe. Are you in need of a living room revamp to make this area even more comfortable or suitable to your family? Check out these 2016 trends and get started updating today.

Organic Stretches Beyond Fruits and Veggies

A trend that has continued to grow in 2016 centers around designs made from sustainable or organic resources. Thinking about reflooring? Consider bamboo. Bamboo might also be a great choice for furnishings — or consider furnishings that have been made from recycled materials. Organically, it’s time to add an even larger living touch to your living room, with furniture in its organic shape versus processed, or more and more green plants as a part of your design scheme.

Don’t want to spend a lot of money? How can you reuse or recycle what you already have in your living room to look and feel newer and more homey? Reupholstering your furniture can be far less expensive than buying new, and has become fashionable as a DIY project as well. What about old and tired tchotchkes? A little paint, a little repurposing, and a little reimagining can go a long way.

Color Is Nice — But So Is Black and White

The past few years have been all about adding splashes of color all over your home. Are you starting to feel like color has taken over and left your house a little too bright? You aren’t alone. And that’s why simple black and white designs have become popular again in 2016. That doesn’t mean you have to suck all of the color out during your living room revamp, however. Consider making your space more colorfully simple with an arrangement of black and white photos, the use of white walls and simple black accouterments, black and white throw pillows, and just an overall toning down of color to give your room a fresh breath.

Dial Back Your Displays

Living rooms can become places where you must show off all of your family photos, all of your kids trophies, all of your favorite collectibles from trips, all of your family heirlooms, and basically everything you’d love friends and neighbors to notice about your life. Isn’t it all a bit too much? 2016 is the year to dial back your displays in a major way. While China and curio cabinets are great to show off items, spread your collections throughout the house in smaller displays that add to the ambiance of a room rather than take over its entire space.

Ready, set, update! Use materials, colors, and reimagined displays for your 2016 living room revamp.
