Revamping a room can be an expensive project and, when it’s an area which is used regularly,, can involve a lot of planning and chaos. However, it is possible to slowly transform your living area, avoiding the disruption caused by a traditional overhaul, while sticking to a pre-planned budget. Read on for ways in which you can revamp your living room space, inexpensively and easily.
Reinvent the room
The same four walls can look so different with a fresh coat of paint. Concentrate on one wall for ease and maximum effect — that statement wall will never go out of style! You can even buy removable wallpaper; great if you are renting or are a commitment-phobe. Renewing flooring doesn’t necessarily mean ripping up the old and laying down the new: create a new vibe by adding a rug, or layering rugs of different patterns and materials to create texture.
Going for green
We will never stop recommending houseplants for adding an extra dimension to your living space! Mix up plant types, sizes and pot styles for added oomph.
Plain walls will never be boring when covered in art. Create a gallery wall for extra interest, opting for images or artwork in a combination of colours and styles to add a visual texture. Lightweight frames can be fixed to the wall using removable strips.
You old softy
Never underestimate the power of a cushion. A tired sofa can be given a new lease of life with a throw, and some careful cushion clashing will create an interesting aesthetic.
Light up your living
The proper lighting can influence your mood by creating ambience. Uplight photos, add soft lighting zones in corners, and accentuate high and low points with lamps and spotlights. Smart lighting is a great idea, as you can set aspects to turn on and off at particular times, or link lighting zones with the sunset — perfect for adding an extra element to an evening indoors.
