The beginning of the new year is enough to mark the beginning of renovating your living room. Of course, who does not want a living room that has a brand-new look and is fresh enough to greet the new year? You will definitely want to welcome your guests in a living room that is new and gives off a fresh feeling. So by now, you are clearly aware of why it is necessary for you to transform your living room. But now you must be wondering if this could happen on a budget. The answer to this is yes!
You can legitimately transform your living room without causing a lot of harm to your pocket. And there are various ways to do it. Transformation does not necessarily call for making structural changes to the house. Just some small additions and alterations can do wonders in helping you achieve a fresh-looking living room. So, to help you in this quest, we have curated a list of tips and tricks that are enough to help you give your living room a new look, and all of the tricks are as follows:
1. Restyling your existing furniture is the key
First on your list of how to refresh the look of your living room is restyling the furniture you already have, such as coffee tables, shelving units, and TV units. Rather than investing in new furniture, it is better to upgrade what you actually have. A bit of DIY can pave the way to bringing your tired furniture back to life. For instance, if you have a lot of wooden furniture, you have the option of repainting or revarnishing the furniture with wood paint or wood varnish, which are easily available at any good DIY store. All you have to do is put a few coats on your furniture, leave it to dry, and voila, you are good to go.
2. Cover up problem areas
Every living room has problem areas, whether it is a bit of wall covered in scuffs, cracks in the leather of your sofa, or a stained carpet. Unfortunately, resolving all of these problem areas will be a bit expensive. But worry not! You can easily cover these up, and the good part is that you actually do not have to invest a lot of money. For instance, all those stains on the floor can be covered up using a rug or a mat. A mat or a rug is not just going to hide that dirty stain on your floor; it will also add up as a new décor piece in your home. You can even try to cover the stains and scuffs that are there on the walls using art prints and posters. If you follow this trajectory, you are actually saving a lot of money and simultaneously giving your living room a fresh new look.
3. Feature wall
Another way that will help you brighten up your living room is by painting a wall in a vibrant color. Painting a wall a different colour is one of the most inexpensive ways to bring some life to your living room. But before you pick a colour for your wall, make sure that you opt for a colour that goes well with your entire house. If you feel a bit confused with the wall colour that you should pick, you can consider purchasing split-face tiles and then arranging them in a way such that your wall looks like a focal wall. This particular effect works well on the main TV/fireplace wall or the wall positioned directly behind the sofa.
4. Opt for some greenery.
Plants are another way of adding some liveliness and freshness to your living room. Whether real or faux, plants always bring warmth to a room. Another benefit of making plants a part of your living room is that they are inexpensive. You can opt for some eucalyptus or green filler, which will work well.
