Keep reading for five great tips and easy ways in which you can easily update the look of your living room!

  1. Perhaps the easiest and most obvious way to update your living room without having to spend a lot of money is to paint the space! You will only have to worry about spending your hard-earned dollars on the paint itself, as well as the investment of a little bit of time in order to ensure that the job is done correctly. Painting your living room offers almost endless creative options. You can pick out a single color, use multiple colors, paint patterns, incorporate stencil work and so much more! Let your imagination go wild.  

 

  1. Artwork is another easy option that can be utilized, whether it involves rearranging pieces you already have to create a new look, or investing in new pieces! What you hang on your walls can create such a huge impact on the aesthetic of the space. In the event that you don’t actually have any artwork, consider placing some frames around either fabric samples or wallpaper, or you could even frame a page of a book that means a lot to you, or print pictures of your family and friends or pictures you’ve taken yourself!

 

  1. Rearranging your furniture is also another budget friendly and easy way to refresh a space. It’s free, and only requires a few helping hands to move the extra-heavy pieces! Take the time to experiment with different options for how you may want the new floor plan in your living room to look until you finally decide on one that you believe will suit the space well. You can even measure and sketch out your space to get an idea of where everything can fit so you know your options.

 

  1. Another way to add texture and extra color to your living room is to add throw blankets and pillows to your sofa and chairs. This simple move can help create a new look for the space, and you could even coordinate to coincide with the seasons.

 

  1. Sometimes living rooms can end up building a fair amount of clutter. The couch may be filled with laundry that you need to fold, shoes could be spread around the front door, or books and word can take up the coffee table. If your living room feels a little cluttered, set aside some time to clear up your space! By doing this, you will be opening up your living room, creating a feeling of minimalism and openness rather than claustrophobic.
