Hoping to breathe new life into your living room without breaking the bank in the process? it is much easier than you think. Here is a helpful ‘how to’ guide to keep close at hand.
Invest in a Fireplace
Nothing will up the coziness factor of your living room quite like a stylish fireplace — and you may be surprised to discover how affordable they can be! These days, there will be a variety of different styles available to you depending on whether your existing interior décor is more traditional or contemporary in nature.
Wood and marble mantles are certain to complement traditional interiors, while stone and slate mantels will emphasize a contemporary atmosphere. Other wonderful variants include decorative mantels and fireplaces made out of limestone, cast iron, and even tiles. Be sure to have a look at the selection available at Stone Wood to get a better idea of the style that you prefer.
Cover Your Sofa
Is your sofa starting to look slightly worn and dingy? Not quite ready to invest in a new one? A simple and saving-savvy solution is to invest in a stylish throw. The throw can add a pop of color to the room, as well as a new and exciting texture, if you wish. It can also be easily removed and washed, which is great news if you have children or pets. Nobody wants juice stains or pet hair on the surface of their actual sofa, after all!
Personalize Your Walls
A cost-effective way to revamp your living room walls is to choose your favorite family snaps and have them printed out on canvas. You can then craft a lovely ‘memory’ wall that you can update over the years as your family changes and grows, and as new memories are created. Not only will it make the room feel more homely and welcoming, but it will act as a talking point when guests come over too.
Throw in Some New Throw Pillows
Fresh new throw pillows can make the world of difference when it comes to revamping and refreshing your family room. If you already own throw pillows, there is no need to buy new ones. Simply invest in some crisp new covers instead. Doing so will also make it possible for you to change up the look and feel of the room whenever and however you wish. Remember to opt for neutral colors if the rest of the room and/or the sofa is quite bright, and to experiment with vibrant hues if the rest of the room and/or sofa is relatively plain.
Add Natural Textures
Breathing new life into your living room is often as simple as adding actual life to it. You can do this in the form of beautiful house plants and natural textures, such as bamboo blinds and thick, woolen rugs for a cozier feeling underfoot. Worried about the maintenance that it takes to keep a house plant alive? Start off small and gradually increase your collection, or opt for plants that don’t require as much TLC. Succulents and cacti are both great options to consider.
See? It is indeed possible for you to enjoy a revitalized living room without overspending on your budget. You’re welcome!
