How to beautify your living room when your budget doesn’t permit you?

The living room is the heart of your house. It starts with living for a reason. The living room is that part of our house where we relax, have fun, and get together for family time. So many of our memories are made in that room.

Some of our most fancy and expensive furniture items are in that room. So, this place needs to be taken care of the most. What often holds up back from renovating our space is ‘the budget.’

Here’s is the kicker: all it takes to design your living room is a little pinch of creativity blended with some interior designing know-how —no extravagant waste of money.

Here are some nifty tips and tricks to help you redesign your living room even if your budget does allow you:

  1. Arrange your room around a classy rug

A rug can effectively pull your room together and give your interior design an elegant look. Place critical pieces of furniture around it to get most out of it, For example, arrange a sofa, pouf, and center table.

When you choose a rug, make sure you keep the dimensions of your room in mind. The rug shouldn’t be too big to have crevices, and not small, not even to cover an ample amount of the floor. Also, if you want to give your living room a fresh and chic look, add a line of plumped-up pillows.

  1. Experiment with sassy colors

A lot of people believe that dark-colored rooms look gloomy and depressed. Some even think that rooms decorated with darker shades are small and claustrophobic. Nothing can be further from the truth.

Dark colors give your room a hotel-isque look which encircles around richness, dramatic wall colors for a cozy, cocoon-like feel. You can also get this effect at home without breaking your bank by simply painting your walls, or you can choose any dark-colored wallpaper design to give that dramatic wall effect to your living room.

Want to be more creative? Try pepping up dark decoration choices with a smattering of bright details, such as a lamp, table, ceiling lights, to finish the interior designer feel.

  1. Build a gallery corner

Arranging paintings on one corner of your living room can help give it an upscale art gallery vibe. You can create an artistic corner if you make two adjacent walls of curated artworks. It will take the focus off the simple furnishings and make all your friends stop by this little space of awesomeness.

No need to go for those expensive and famous artworks. Yes! They are great, but remember, ‘we are on a budget here!’

You can pick affordable picture frames from chain stores, online, or thrift shops. Hang your artwork if you have made any. Go for a unique and eye-catchy collection of postcards and your favorite pictures, if you feel like it.

Also, try to combine clusters of smaller artworks with one or more significant oil paintings for an instant burst of uplifting color.

  1. Delight textured patterns

Mix a variety of different materials for a sophisticated and subtle effect. If you’re following a neutral palette, then metal, leather, wool, tweed, woven cotton, velvet rugs, and sheepskin are all a good fit.

Do not forget that coffee table, after all, it is the place where we sit to have our coffee every morning. Styling your coffee table doesn’t have to be too fancy — some lovely earthenware vases with mood-boosting garden plants or potted plants can bring the charm you need in your living room.

  1. Change the furniture layout

How long are you going to sit on that couch by that wall? Or, how long would that bookshelf be in that corner? Get up, move them! Bring a new feel to the room.

Rearranging the setting will improve the vibe. Also, placing the right furniture at the right place is the key. If your living room has a fireplace, set your seating around it. Keep your bookshelf by the table, and like that, you have a new look for your living room.

  1. Add bright colors

Incorporating brighter shades is the simplest way to make a standard dull living room feel less bland and more creatively designed. Gorgeous green sofas are a way to give your room life.

Furniture trends change very fast. You don’t need to hold on to those dull sofas that your parents got a decade ago. If you don’t feel like changing the sofa, you can still incorporate bright colors in small chunks such as lamps, vases, pillows, and rugs.

  1. Hang long draperies

Floor-length drapes arouse the grandeur of five-star hotels and stately residencies. Search online for budget-friendly curtains. You can pair them with a dramatic chandelier to steal the show. You can go with the patterned materials if you want an eye-catching effect.

  1. Show off vintage treasure of two

When in doubt, go for vintage! The antique furniture adds a focal point to any room. You can still find emblazoned vintage furniture, dating back from the Victorian era at reasonable rates.

You can still find antique furniture in areas that have a rich history. For example, furniture stores in Rhode Island  can be a good place to start if you want to get your hands on them.

  1. Feature some decorative wallpapers

A wall or panel of different decorative wallpaper is a great way to make your dull room sing cheerfully. You can find plenty of aspirational yet budgeted wallpapers out there — order samples before you choose so that you can be sure about the finish, pattern, and color that fit in your living room.

  1. Introduce velvet’s depth

Velvet always remains in fashion. It gives a luxurious sheen to your room. If getting an ultimate in luscious velvet style sofa comes hard on your budget, buy a pile of tactile velvet pillows. This will add a dose of a shimmery effect to your room.

Bottom line

See, a little sense of embellishing, rearranging, repurposing, and harnessing the power of paints go a long way in giving your living room a complete designer look. So, follow these tips and thank me when your friends come to you, asking which designer you hired.
