Often times the living room is the place we all like to hang out. It is where our family spends most of there time together, and where we entertain our friends.
This may be why we want our living rooms to look nice, feel comfortable and be inviting. One of the first things you might do is run out and buy a couch, a new entertainment center or perhaps a recliner. New furniture can completely transform your room but its important to remember the small details as well. We have put together a series of budget friendly decorating tips that will allow you to update your living room before or after that new sectional sofa arrives.
Changing the colors in a room can be one of the most inexpensive and significant ways of decorating any room. Choose a color plate that features two or three colors. This will give your living room a complete fresh start.
Area rugs can really transform your floor, that may be in dire need of spicing up. Cover up your boring old carpet, or tile with an area rug with a fun pattern or texture.
Add mirrors to create the illusion that you have more space. If you place mirrors in just the right place, you may be able to even fool yourself. Alternatively, buy furniture that allows you to store things in, for example, a sofa with storage below it, shelves to place those empty vases on, you could even find cheap wooden TV stands that have storage underneath meaning everything from DVD’s to your cables will be hidden away.
The most affordable way to decorate is to create pieces your self. You may be surprised with how creative you can be with a few hours on pinterest and at the craft store. A huge perk to doing your own art is that you can choose materials that go together nicely, and colors that add to your pallet.
Add some liveliness to your living room. Plants are a great touch to really bring a room to life, with color and class. Find a place with some light to arrange them and voila.
