In most homes, the living room is where most of the action happens. This is where they spend time together as a family and entertain their friends. Apart from the bedroom, your living room is where you spend the most time in your house. It’s no wonder then that we all want our living rooms to look good and be comfortable. However, with constant wear and tear, our living room begins to look drab, dated, and mostly in need of a makeover for the better. Unfortunately, redecorating even just one room in the house can be extremely expensive, and a situation involving redecorating your living room is no different. However, with our tips for remodeling your living room, you can easily and quickly refresh your living room decor without breaking the bank.

Pop Colors – Changing the color scheme of a room is an easy and inexpensive method of redecorating. Choose a color scheme that is different from what your living room previously sported. To give your living room paint a professional look, mix and match two or three colors, paint one wall a different color, or use dark colors to accent certain parts of the room.

Go Green: Bringing plants into your living room adds color and life to the room. Adding greens to a room always makes it look classy and fresh. Buy a couple of potted plants and place them in a corner of the living room where there is some light. You can also keep your plants in a dark corner and hang a lamp above it. This will not only ensure that your plants live; it will also result in a beautiful corner arrangement.

Add space – If you want to make your living room bigger than it currently is, but you can’t do much about it, placing a couple of mirrors on the wall is the best option to knock down the walls. Mirrors add an illusion of extra space, and if done correctly, you could end up misleading yourself about the actual size of your living room.

Cover up your floors – Changing dull or drab tiles or carpets is an extremely expensive move. If you’re fed up with your old flooring, buying multi-colored rugs and rugs and strategically placing them in your living room will give your floor new life and color at minimal cost. You can choose from a wide range of floor coverings depending on your budget and the theme of your living room.

Create your own art – One of the cheapest ways to decorate your room is to use artwork and decorative pieces that you have created yourself. Even if you’re not very artistic, you can easily put together a collage of images, leaves, or dried flowers that will look attractive once framed. You can also frame interesting pieces of fabric or cushion covers to create a tapestry-like wall hanging.

Add to your upholstery – While changing all your living room furniture, sofas, loveseats and chairs can be very expensive, you can easily change the upholstery for a fraction of the price, and your sofas will be back to looking like new. If you can’t find someone to do this for you, then you can shop for blankets, shawls and new cushion covers to give your seating space a new look for less.
