Decorating a space can be both a pain and a joy to any homeowner. On the one hand, crafting a room based on your personal vision is fulfilling. You are creating a perfectly unique space for you and your loved ones. There is nothing quite like flexing your creative muscles and seeing your vision come to life.

Nevertheless, most people assume that sprucing up your home would wreak havoc on their monthly budgets. Quality art and furniture, after all, do not come cheap. It simply isn’t responsible to buy several decorative pieces but do not have the means to cover al the dues in a month

Thankfully, upgrading the style and decor of your home – specifically your living room, doesn’t have to put you on the red. There are ways you can jazz up your living area even on a reasonable budget. Below are some of the steps that you should be taking in order to have the living room of your dreams:

Assess The Pieces You Own

 One of the easiest ways to save on redecorating your living room is by using the pieces that you already own. It’s similar to shopping in your own closet when you have gotten tired of the clothes that you frequently wear.

It is best not to limit your assessment in just your living room. There are probably pieces of furniture as well as decor in other parts of your home that would be better off in your living room. Doing this would ensure that you don’t spend your money on unnecessary pieces that you already have.


Maybe your living area doesn’t need new decor? Maybe it only needs to be rearranged in order to breathe new life into the room. Especially if you invested in good quality furniture with a classic design, rearranging your living room can solve your decor problems.

Before lifting and moving furniture, it is best to recreate the floor plan of your living room on a piece of paper. Measure the pieces that you have and make a place for them. Set aside maybe an entire afternoon to rearrange the pieces.

Invest in Big Central Pieces: aka Retire Your Rickety Sofa

Furniture is expensive. If you had a tight budget during your move, you probably had to buy cheap furniture that is already falling apart. It is high time that you upgrade the centerpiece of your living room.

Buying a good quality sofa is a good investment. A sturdy piece can last generations. Make sure that the style that you purchase can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the aesthetic you are going for. A classic style would be able to evolve with your future homes. Keep that in mind when buying your sofa.

Bring the Outside In

Another easy and inexpensive way to spruce up your living room is by introducing plants into the space. Greenery is not only beautiful but it can ease eye strain, improve your living rooms air quality, and boost your mood.

Decorating your living room with plants like Birds of Paradise, Peace Lilies, and Snake plants are great choices for the space. In order to avoid a plant graveyard in your entertainment space, however, make sure that your living room gets ample sun and you incorporate their maintenance in your daily routine.

Paint a Wall

If you aren’t afraid to make big design decisions, painting a wall can instantly change the look of your living room. While laborious, it doesn’t take a lot of money to endeavor in this project. All you really need is an afternoon, a few cans of paint, a couple of your best friends, and some good snacks and you are good to go.

With that said, not everyone can paint an entire wall. Especially those who are renting, messing with the foundations of your living room can cost you your deposit. Should that be the case, a bold color on one of your furniture pieces would do the trick. While the impact wouldn’t be as bombastic, it can definitely level up your living room’s style game.

 Light and Bright

There are very few things more uninviting than a dark, dingy living room. In most cases, your living room is the first area in your home that guests see. You don’t want them to get the wrong impression about your home and the way you live.

Styling your living room takes more than new furniture and a new layout. You also have to consider how bright and inviting the room is. If you have big windows, try to maximize them by using light and airy curtains. Likewise, you should also invest in quality light fixtures in order to illuminate the space at night. The best thing about lighting fixtures is that they are both decorative and utilitarian!
