A living room is a place to retreat to at the end of a long and stressful workday, so why not make it feel comfy? Thankfully, there are many ways to take the design up a notch, without setting your wallet on fire. Take some inspiration from these three, budget-friendly design ideas to dress up your living room.
- Use a rug as a focal point.
A stylish rug can help pull the eye towards other pieces in your room and still be within budget. Make sure to arrange the furniture around the rug so that it creates a focal point. But be careful: when choosing a rug, think about how big your living room is. Picking one that’s too small or too big can actually steer viewers away from other furniture in the room. Make sure that the size is right and it compliments the coffee table, couches and other furniture around it.
- Create an artsy corner.
Arranging prints and paintings into groups can help give a living room an upscale vibe – and you don’t have to spend a fortune. Visit local thrift shops or browse online for inexpensive picture frames. Work with different combinations of colors and sizes to create a gallery that speaks to your style.
- Rearrange the furniture.
Now this is a true budget-friendly way of improving your living room. Experiment with what you already have by changing the layout or paring back some items to create simplicity. Even a few coats of paint or freshly picked flowers can change the whole mood of a room.
No matter what your budget is, you don’t have to settle for boring when you’re looking to dress up your living room. There are still ways to give your space a designer look, without the huge price tag.
