The living room is an area where you spend most of your time. Whether you’re entertaining guests or spending time with family, the living room is the designated hang out space. So, it’s quite natural that you want this room to look not just beautiful but also interesting. That’s the reason why you try to make this place as perfect as possible. However, even the best designs need sprucing up after some time. Now, that does not mean you have to completely remodel and rearrange the entire living room decor. Renovating costs are high and making big remodeling changes can also cost you a lot. But if you think creatively, you can refresh your living room on a tight budget. Just making some simple and strategic changes can easily uplift your decor and make it interesting. Here are some tips to get a snazzy living room decor within a budget.
Add Interesting Furniture
Furniture is a staple of living rooms. So, you might not think about using it as a means to create interest in the decor. However, an interesting piece of furniture can easily catch and hold the attention. So, if you can, spend a little to add a small piece of furniture like a round ottoman coffee table with storage or a unique table lamp. Try to pick something that is funky or unique so that it adds some character to the decor. But if you don’t want anything quirky, you can go for modern furnishings that are elegant, functional, and easy to use with most decor styles.
Replace the Pillows and Throws
A quick and easy way to spruce up the living room is to change all the pillows and throws. Pillows and throws are a great way of bringing in color, texture, and patterns to the decor. You can use pillows to add some quirk and uniqueness to the decor too. Plus, being a source of comfort, they also do a good job of making the room warm and inviting. But, looking at the same pillows and throws can get boring after a while. So, if you want to spice things up in your living room, simply change the pillows and throws to something different and eye-catching.
Change the Shades on Lamps
Lamp shades are one of those things that we often take for granted. But they are also a very important and obvious part of the decor. Just as good lighting sets the mood, a good lamp shade can enhance a design. If you’re looking for a quick and inexpensive way to refresh your living room, you should consider changing all the shade lamps. You can choose from various colors, designs, and patterns. For example, you can go for pleated lamps if you want a vintage or home style look but go for base colors like white or black for a modern decor.
Replace Curtains and Rugs
Textiles can easily make or break the mood and feel of any room. Which is why, even the smallest change in the textile becomes easily notable in any decor. You should consider replacing or adding some textile to your decor to give it a fresh look. Change the curtains and add sofa covers or try replacing the area rugs for a different look. You can choose from a wide range of options in materials, colors, and patterns in curtains and rugs. Match them with your decor or go for a contrasting effect to add drama to the decor.
Add Some Whimsical Artwork
Adding artwork to the walls is the easiest way to generate interest in the design. Art brings a touch of elegance to your decor. While the style and subject of the artwork doesn’t usually matter, it is still best to have some preferences. If you want an elegant and sophisticated look, you should choose similar artwork. However, if you want to add some quirk or some personality to the decor, go for quirky and unconventional art pieces.
With the festival just around the corner, everyone will look forward to brushing up their home decor. Instead of doing the same decor changes every year, you can use the above ideas and try something new and refresh your living room within a small budget!
