Affordable Living Room Decor Ideas:
If you feel stuck in the same, underwhelming design, an easy fix is to rearrange your living room furniture. By rearranging it, you can transform your space into something completely new while spending zero dollars. When rearranging, you will want to keep these aspects in mind:
- The room’s flow/traffic pattern.
- The furniture’s function.
- The focal point of the space.
You may be surprised by what a gallon of paint can do for your living room. If your current color scheme is feeling dull, you can freshen it up with a new wall color. You can even repaint some of your furniture to make them feel brand new.
While redecorating, you may decide that you want a completely new design. You can redesign your space into something completely new with a few minor adjustments. You will ideally want to leave the base of your room the same to help you stay on budget. The base will be items like your furniture, but items like your pillows, curtains, blankets, and decor pieces can be swapped out to match your new design.
Before you get rid of older items, try and reimagine their use. For example, a stack of old books can be used as a decor piece on a coffee table. The best way to save money in your design is to use things that you already own. You can go around your home and find items that are not being used then incorporate them into your living room’s design.
Depending on your space, you may have the opportunity to switch focus to a new point in the room. A different area may be able to become your new “focal point.” For example, if your furniture has always faced the windows, you may want to try something new. Try adjusting your furniture’s focus to point in a new direction. Maybe you have a gorgeous fireplace that you want to show. Now is your time to redirect the focus to that specific area.
Antique and thrift shops are the perfect places to find old, well-kept furniture for an affordable price. While shopping, you want to get creative and try to see items with all of their possibilities. An old dresser may look unappealing now, but with a fresh coat of paint and some new hardware; it could look brand new!
If you are on a tight budget, buying all new furniture may not be realistic. Instead, you will want to try to repurpose some items that you currently own. You may be pleasantly surprised by what you can accomplish with your own items.
