Your home is your sanctuary, and you’re getting tired of the boring atmosphere you’re living in. The good news is that you don’t have to spend all your money redecorating your home. Here are five simple tips to help you jazz up and snazzy your living room.
Get a fresh coat
There’s absolutely nothing like a fresh coat of paint to brighten up an old, boring room. There are great paint techniques that you can apply to completely change the look and feel of the room. Remember to keep the color calm and make sure it matches your things.
You can also go bold and daring by painting one wall dramatic and keeping the rest of the panels easy-going.
Play with your furniture and position it in different places to get a “new look.” If you have a long living room and your furniture look lost in it, try moving the couches into a U-shape to make it seem fuller and create a cozier environment.
New paintings and décor
A new painting and some candles will make a world of difference to a bland and boring room. Many stores offer affordable decorating goodies. If you can’t afford all the décor you want, buy it in small batches, and get your absolute must-have item first.
There is so much you can do with a room without stretching your credit. Many stores have mix-and-match options that can be combined to create a crafty, trendy look.
A new rug is a great way to change the look and feel of the room. It can also transform it from cold and open to warm and invitingly. Put it under the coffee table in your living room for a great “homey” effect.
Color with cushions
Cushions are relatively inexpensive and can turn the room around. For added color, get a matching couch throw and play with various styles. You’ll be amazed at the difference.
