Your living room is a special place in the home. It's where you likely cozy in with family and friends to spend the majority of your time. It's important to create a space that fills you with comfort and joy. Sometimes even after you've created the perfect living room for you, it's easy to get bored with the same thing everyday and want to make a change: big or small. It's natural, especially if you're someone who loves to decorate, to find an area stale and in need of a refresh.
When you do decide to make a change, it doesn’t have to cost you a fortune. In fact, you can actually make some very simple changes to update your living room and watch the new life suddenly breathed into your tired old living space. If you're looking for a little update with a low budget, these 3 easy ways to update your living room ideas are for you.
Change The Layout
You don’t have to spend a dime on this one, just a little time and muscle. I love switching up our home. Whether it's moving the furniture or simply redesigning your shelves. It's one of the simplest ways to change things up in your home and feel like a full refresh. You’ve probably thought to yourself that that table would look better over there or putting the rug in the center would open up the room. You may even find it gives you more space. Have fun with this one and experiment!
Your windows are one of the most important features in your living room, they allow in all that natural light to light up the room and fill it with life. Nobody likes sitting in a dark room, until maybe movie night. However, what you cover your windows up with is also a very important feature. As with all features in the home, your curtains can change the look, feel, and dynamic of the rooms. Heavy thick curtains can make a room feel more dramatic and luxurious but block out too much light whereas sheer white curtains can make a room feel more airy and light. How much light do you want to let in? How will they fit in with the aesthetic of the room? Test different ones and see how you feel. Or like I do, remove curtains all together!
Adding artwork is such a great way to bring personality and vibrancy to a room. Art can bring us happy memories, cheer us up after a bad day, inspire us in our life or careers. Artwork can change the entire feeling of a room from comforting and soothing to excited and loud. There are so many different art styles, colors, and schemes to try; there’s certainly a piece of art that will fit with pretty much any aesthetic you desire.
