Are you thinking about giving your living room a brand-new look?
Approximately 25% of U.S. homeowners spend between $2,000 and $5,000 on upgrading their living rooms, but that does not mean you have to invest so much. You can completely change the feel of any room on a budget.
Here are some great tips for refreshing your living room.
Change your flooring
Sometimes, changing the flooring can not only transform the way you feel about your living room but also increase the value of your home. The right flooring can make your living room feel brighter and larger.
There is no single ‘best’ flooring choice. It depends entirely on your home. Whether you install a carpet, an authentic hardwood floor, or you consider fitting laminate flooring, it has to fit in with the style of your property.
Many retailers already provide online artificial intelligence programs to help you imagine your living room with a new floor installed.
Paint your walls
The Forbes Real Estate Council makes it clear that not all real estate upgrades have to cost huge amounts of money. They say that even painting your walls can have a great impact on real estate values.
Apart from the frontal exterior of the home, the living room is usually the first room prospective buyers see. If you are interested in selling your home in future, painting your walls is an easy way of giving your living room a facelift.
Update your sofa
Your sofa is usually the biggest piece of furniture in the room. It forms a natural focal point for anyone who sees your living room.
Buying a new sofa may be a natural solution, but it can be expensive. If you are on a low budget, adding some new throw pillows or a blanket can give you a similar effect without the cost.
Add in a coffee table
Coffee tables are trending in the 2020s. They do an excellent job of breaking up space and making a living room feel cozier. Furthermore, they are a practical option.
There are coffee tables to suit every taste and every budget, so be willing to shop around. If you do not want to pay for a premium coffee table, consider researching the secondhand market. It is possible to find some great deals on secondhand furniture.
Update your lighting
Lighting is everything in a living room. Our eyes are naturally drawn to light fixtures as a focal point. A tired, greasy light fixture will influence how you feel about your living room.
Consider updating those old painted light fixtures with some shiny chrome ones. Change out those old floor lamps with a new shade, or completely replace them with a modern equivalent.
Match them up to create an ongoing trend throughout your home. It is a simple way of getting some style points for your living room.
While it may be tempting to invest thousands of dollars in updating your living room, it is unnecessary if you only want to refresh its décor.
Follow these five tips and your living room will look like a completely new room. With the pandemic, now has never been a better time to decorate.
