5 Tips For Redecorating Your Living Room That Won’t Break The Bank
Redecorating one of the most important rooms in the house can be a daunting task. We spend many hours each day in our living rooms, whether it’s watching TV, reading a book, or relaxing with our families.
So these multi-purpose spaces need to be both attractive and homely. Here are 5 tips for redecorating your living room that won’t break the bank.
1. Paint is cheap and colourful
If you want to bring life and colour to your living room, paint is the best option. Many people opt for white or cream walls, but why not add a splash of colour instead? You can still get a sleek and modern look with some bright colour painted on the walls.
What’s more, pairing bright walls with neutral furniture, such as our Cleveland Grey sofa, means your furniture will work for multiple future colour changes.
2. Mirrors create the air of space
Dealing with darker rooms can be a challenge when redecorating. They can appear small and dingy if you’re not very careful with your colour choices and room layout.
But using multiple mirrors in a room creates reflections and the appearance of more space. Consider hanging a large mirror, such as our Black Wall Arched Industrial Metal Style Mirror opposite the window to effectively double the size of your living room.
3. Buying a rug is cheaper than replacing flooring
When you’re redecorating, it can be tempting to go all out and replace the flooring. But doing so can add hundreds (if not thousands) to your budget depending on the material and floor space.
Simply buying a new rug can make the floor feel fresh and new. Our Native Lifestyle jute rugs are sleek and stylish, and their texture and colour creates interest on potentially underwhelming floors.
4. Invest in quality furniture
This might seem like the opposite of reducing your budget, but investing in good quality furniture makes a difference. It lasts longer and will be with you through multiple redecorations.
A good coffee table is a must in any living room. Something like our Native Marble Silver coffee table will go with multiple looks and colour schemes, making it a sound investment for years to come.
5. Plants revitalize any space
Houseplants are going through something of a revival at the moment, and for good reason. They filter air, look amazing, and can help reduce stress and anxiety. What’s more, they can make any space look fresh and new, and are a great alternative to knick-knacks for filling empty space.
Our globe glass plant holder adds even more interest to the plant by exposing the soil and roots, all while looking sleek and elegant.
The trick to redecorating your living room without breaking the bank is being smart with your investments. Good quality furniture is a better use of your money than expensive carpet or wallpaper. Also, sticking with neutral tones in things like your sofa and coffee table means you can reuse them again and again in future projects.
