If you are one of the many out there that are looking to give your living room a new lease of life but are on a budget, read on for some helpful tips. In this short post, we will discuss ways that you can elevate the room without breaking out the credit card. Let’s face it, in these uncertain times, we don’t need any unnecessary debt but with everyone spending more time at home, you want to make your living as pleasant a place to be in as possible.
Hands down, one of the easiest ways to breathe new life into a room is by giving it a fresh coat of paint. Adding a new colour to the walls is an expensive way to make a big change and fairly commitment-free should you decide that the latest colour trend isn’t for you.
Before choosing the colour, think about if it will tie in with the rest of your interiors. Check out the colours available from top brands like Dulux and Crown at The Paint Shed.
Have you taken the time to choose the perfect furniture, the right lighting and have added a pop colour to your walls but something doesn’t feel quite right, it feels kind of empty somehow? If this sounds familiar, then you probably should look at adding some colourful art to give your walls some personality and make them as visually interesting as the rest of the room.
You don’t need to opt for an expensive piece, you can pick up prints of all sizes very reasonable these days or even make a statement wall with frames of different shapes and sizes.
An oversized, ornate statement mirror is a great way to add some glamour to your living space without overspending. Not only is a mirror a useful and decorative piece but they can also create the illusion of space, which is ideal if this is at a premium in your living room. The bigger the mirror, the more space it will appear to create.
Remember, your mirror doesn’t always have to go above the mantle, as is tradition. Think outside the box and place it against the wall.
A large textured frame can add dimension to a room.
Do you have a rug that has seen better days or one that could do with being a little bigger to cover a larger area? If so, think about picking up a new eye-catching one that can really pull a room together and give your floor a new lease of life.
Not only are shelves practical and ideal as a storage solution but they can also add some personality to a bare wall. Floating shelves are a great way to display your favourite books and photos as well as your greenery. Draping plants like ivy hanging from your shelf is a great way to add some colour to your room and make it feel more homely.
