8 Custom Living Room Renovation Ideas for Edmonton Homeowners


The living room is the gathering room where memories are made. It’s the space kids play, adults mingle and where we can cozy up for some Netflix and chill. With the right upgrades, you can renovate your living room into a space that is functional and stylish.

If you’re looking for inspiration that goes beyond a new paint job or rearranging your furniture, we’ve got you covered. Here’s a list of a few renovations that will elevate your Edmonton living room and make it a space that you’ll love to spend time in with your family and friends.

Idea 1: Custom Built In Shelving

Built-ins are completely custom and can be added to any living room no matter how big or small the space. They can be used to frame fireplaces, create extra storage space, or bring your fantasy library to life. For more customization, you can add extra styling to your units by strategically placing books, vases, frames, and other objects around the units.

Idea 2: Ceiling Treatments

Ceiling treatments create a sense of grandeur and elegance. There are a lot of designs to choose from to add an unexpected flair to your living space. Coffered ceilings and faux beams add extra depth while shiplap and double tray designs catch your eye when you enter the room.

If you need help choosing which ceiling treatment will pop the most in your space, give us a call and we’ll be happy to help you decide!

Idea 3: Fireplace Upgrade

If your fireplace unit is functioning properly but it looks outdated, it might be time for an upgrade. With a little renovation work, that dingy fireplace can become the focal point of your living room. To modernize your fireplace you could re-work the mantle by adding a new one, changing it out with another, or removing it completely. You could also surround the fireplace in modern brick, stone, or tile.

Bonus idea: The surround could make for a beautiful accent wall if you decide to take it all the way up to the ceiling!

Idea 4: Custom Media Wall

A custom media wall will help you keep your electronics organized while also complimenting your home’s décor. An integrated entertainment system can be built to frame your TV and store things such as video game consoles, picture frames, and other personal items. If you don’t already have a fireplace in your living room, we can build a custom entertainment unit with a built-in electric fireplace to brighten up your space.

Idea 5: Unique Hardwood or Patterned Tiles

If you’re looking to ditch the cheap flooring in your living room, we can help you pick out new ones that you’ll absolutely love. You can easily make a statement by lying the hardwood in a herringbone pattern or choosing bold patterned tiles. Unsure about how to choose the right hardwood floors for your home?

Idea 6: New Lighting Design

Good lighting will elevate the entire ambience of your living room. Lighting plays an essential role in creating a relaxing atmosphere and is often not thought of or missed entirely in living room spaces.

Different types of lighting to consider include:

  • Ambient

These lights fill may light up a section or fill an entire room. Examples include chandeliers and floor lamps.

  • Decorative

Decorative lighting is meant to make a statement. Examples include LED lighting and ceiling fans.

  • Task Oriented

Task lighting can be used in lieu of turning on a larger light or if you are doing a specific task. Examples include under cabinet lighting and pendant lights.

Don’t forget to pick out lighting fixtures that coordinate with your room’s over-all design theme.

Idea 7: Add a Gallery Wall

Whether you’re an art collector or a proud parent, a gallery wall is an excellent addition to your home. You can choose to highlight your artwork and family portraits in a custom niche designed to display your favorite images.

Or, if you want to take your gallery to the next level, we can design and build custom frames for your artwork. Mix and match different art styles and images for a personalized touch. Hang unique sconces to give your wall the full museum aesthetic.

Idea 8: Smart Home Integration

A smart home renovation includes the installation and setup of appliances such as thermostats, lighting, and faucets that can be controlled remotely by a phone or tablet. The climate and daylight changes in Edmonton makes smart home technology a valuable part of your living room renovation.

Adding smart home integrations will increase your home’s value while also increasing safety, energy-efficiency, and comfort. If you are not familiar with how smart home devices work, we can walk you through the basics and help you decide which devices are right for your home.
