The living room is the one place in the home where family and friends gather to spend quality time with each other. It is the center of the home that needs proper attention while decorating. It has to be lively and appealing so that you can enjoy sitting in that area. To help you with the décor of the living room, we have come up with some budget-friendly living room decor ideas that are easy to implement as well.
Rearrange the Furniture
The first step is to replace or swap the furniture you already have in your living room. Simply change their place with each other in such an order that will make the living room spacious and more appealing. Only this step can give new look to your living room in no time.
Shop Your Own Home for Living Room
Before you blow your tiny budget on purchasing or buying new things for your living room, it is necessary to check at least once the other rooms to borrow something from there for your living room. You may find many other things like a wooden table, flowerpots or something else.
The things which were useless in the other room might become usable in your living room. Like a wooden table can have many things on itself like picture frames or flowerpots. If it does not match with your living room color theme then you can repaint the table to match it with the theme. Hence recycling is way better than waste.
Mix Up the Lighting
Mixing up the living room’s lighting is something that can be updated really quickly and does not require a lot of your money. Put some lamps on the floor or table at different heights, layering your lighting this way will create cozy pools of light that can quickly change the mood of a living room.
You can also incorporate very unique and beautiful Himalayan salt lamps in your living room décor. These lamps are all-natural and give a very pleasant and warm glow. Their alluring pink color can enhance the overall décor of the living room.
A very simple way to make the living room more attractive is by repainting your walls in a cool manner. There are a lot of good-quality, low-priced paints out there, but if you really want to save your money, you could just buy a small pot and paint one wall to create an accent wall. It will be more interesting if you create a color contrast or match the same wall paint with the existing things of the room to create synchronization.
Update Your Walls’ Artwork
Another low-budget idea to change the look of your living room is to put some wallpapers on all four walls. It is an alternative to painting the walls or hanging and displaying picture frames on them. Fabric wall hangings are also a quick and cheap way of brightening up your standard blank walls.
Add Greenery with House Plants
Another very pleasant and mood-changing idea is to place some house plants in beautiful pots in the living room. Plants are an easy way to add freshness and greenery to the living room. They can literally give life to a dead space by adding color. All you have to do is to arrange groups of small plants at different heights. Also, the plants will make your living room’s environment so refreshing.
Create a Gallery Wall
It is also a very creative way to add drama to the living room. Simply take a wall and add some photo frames, paintings, art, and abstractions or drawings (made by our little kids or sisters and brothers) to it. It will also give an art gallery type of look to your eyes.
New Cushions of Your Sofa Set
Time to change the cushions of your sofa in the living room. Changing sofa cushions is the easiest and instant way of soft furnishing. Use cushions of different sizes, shapes, colors, and textures. A few purchases of new cushions could be all your living room needs to feel refreshed. You can match them with the theme color of the living room to create some synch.
Just a little planning and creativity can help you to achieve these living room decor ideas on a budget.
