5 WAYS TO JAZZ UP YOUR LIVING ROOM ON A BUDGET

Are you looking to spruce your living room up – but don’t want to break the bank?  There’s nothing like a bit of colour to brighten up your room. We have come up with some top tips as to how you make your living room look better than ever without having to dig into those savings too much.  

Get a Colourful Rug

This will work particularly well if you have wooden or laminate flooring which is common these days.  It’s a great place to start if you want to add a splash of colour. The good news is, even a small rug will do the trick – which means it isn’t likely to cost too much.  If you want to make sure it doesn’t need too much maintenance, you can opt for a vibrant colour that is a little darker.

Dress your Windows with New Blinds

Curtains can be on the expensive side – particularly if you are looking for high-quality.  Roller blinds can be a great way to draw attention to your windows when it gets darker outside.  There are lots of different shades and options these days, so you are bound to find something that fits in well with your décor.  You can also get roller blinds that are cost-effective too, so you don’t need to invest as much as you think. For example, DotcomBlinds have a fantastic selection of blinds from as low as £8.40 which is a great bargain if you’re trying to avoid spending too much. You can also request a free sample from their site for peace of mind.

Go for Some Bold Art

It’s a good idea to have a “statement piece” to draw people’s eyes to when they enter your living room.  Instead of spending a lot of time and money on the wallpaper to make a feature wall – you could invest in some bold art that will stand out in your living room.  You can get some great oversized pieces that will brighten up the space.  The other advantage of art is that it’s not permanently placed – you can move it wherever you like if you change your mind as to where you want it.  

Get Some Plants

Plants have lots of benefits when in the home.  Not only can they add a bit of colour and brighten up a beige spot in your room – but they also help clean the air.  They are also known to boost healing and bring oxygen to the body to help you breathe better.

Accessorise your Furnishings

Instead of spending a lot of money on a new sofa or dining table and chairs – why not add a little colour with some new accessories?  This could be anything from cushions, to throws – or a bright runner for your dining room table. This is a much more cost-effective way to bring some new life into your décor – and if done well, can have people thinking you have a brand-new room.

If you are thinking of redecorating or are just a little bored with your living room the way it is – hopefully, these tips will bring the breath of fresh air your room needs.
