Your living room is often one of the most used rooms in your home and the one that most people will see the most. It is a place you naturally invite any guests who come over to sit, while perhaps you make them a drink and become the hostess. But many people would like to redecorate their living rooms, but because they can often be larger spaces than other rooms in your home, they worry about the costs. So here are some budget-friendly options to consider.
Rugs Instead of New Flooring
New flooring in a big space can often be a pricey way to update your home. While it can make a dramatic change to the way a room looks, it might be worth considering other options instead. Large rugs can make a big difference to a space, without the need for the big price tag. You can add them to cover up flooring you don’t like and can’t afford to change, or you could simply do it as an added layer and texture to make a room feel warm and inviting. It is a great option to consider.
A Feature Wall
Maybe you want to make a room feel different, but don’t want the upheaval of painting the whole room. It can be quite labour intensive, so a quick solution to this problem is to think about creating a feature wall instead. This could be a different and contrasting paint colour, maybe wallpaper or even using pictures and frames to create a more personal touch. The options are endless and Pinterest has some great idea to consider.
Making More of the Windows
The next thing to consider would be something you have already that you might not utilise to its full potential. The window. One of the best things to do is to get as much natural light into the space as possible, and you can do that by opening up the curtains wider or pulling up the blinds. The next thing could be to dress the windows up a little more. Maybe using the windowsill to add a few personal touches or trinkets that you love.
A New Light Fitting
A light fitting can be a dramatic feature, so if you want to create something eye-catching in a living space then changing this one thing could do that for you. You could have something vintage and unique, something ultra-modern o set the tone or even a grand light fitting like a chandelier. Think about the theme and take it from there.
Finally, think about adding some personal a touches to your home and living spaces as a way of making it more interesting to see. It could be upcycled furniture that you have poured your heart and soul into. Painting a table or if you reupholster a chair, for example. Or it could be that you want to think about pictures in frames or things that mean something to you. It is a great way to add personality to your home.
Let’s hope that these tips help to make your living space cosy on a budget.
