Changing the focal point of the room makes a huge difference. You can add a fireplace or possibly a built in entertainment center with bookshelves. Also, window treatments can pay for themselves over time by keeping energy bills down.

If you’re into drama, wallpaper can also pack a dramatic punch. Venetian plaster is also a hot trend right now. You can also treat the ceiling to add a dramatic change to your living room renovation.
