A living room remodel can take many forms, from a simple refresh to a complete gut job. Whether you’re simply painting your walls in an apartment in Phoenix, AZ, or doing a complete makeover in a house in Philadelphia, PA, there are a few things to keep in mind that will help you get the most out of your living room remodel. First, think about how you want to use the space. Do you need more seating for entertaining? Does the room need to be more functional for day-to-day life? Once you understand how you want to use the space, you can begin to formulate a plan.

To help you embark on your living room remodel, we gathered some of the top tips and expert insights for revamping a space. Let’s get started.

Leslie Markman-Stern from Leslie M. Stern Design recommends asking yourself, "How will you use the room? If you’re an entertainer, consider more elaborate finishes. If you prefer quiet nights at home, incorporate soft touches throughout."
