The living room of a home has many uses. It may be for studying, gaming, entertaining, reading, or relaxing. It can also be finished and laid out in a variety of ways. You can have built-in furnishings, traditional furnishings, or a need for special lighting. In any instance, with the amount of use this room gets, it is important to pay attention to what it needs during a remodel.
You may need to paint, refinish furniture, or build new bookcases. With the broad scope of different projects that can be done, there is often a wide range of associated costs.
Even in terms of labor, you can have a range of both professionals and associated costs. For example, you may need to hire a carpenter at $70/hr or an upholsterer at $55/hr. A full remodel of your living room may include labor costs of up to $3,500 for the total project.
