Desperate to bring your living room into the 2020s? But don’t have the cash to spend on an entire re-fit? As one of the most-used – and versatile – rooms of your home, the humble living room deserves a little TLC. And you don’t need to spend a fortune. Here, we bring you the easiest ways to take your living room to the next level.
KEEP IT SIMPLE
Does it really need a makeover? Or can you introduce a fresh and modern look with a new colour scheme and textures to reflect the decade? Swap out old cushions for new, add a throw that complements this look, an on-trend layering of rugs and new artwork, and you’ll transform your space. A fresh coat of paint probably wouldn’t hurt, then add some greenery in large pots or woven baskets and you’ll be very happy with your new look.
INVEST WITH PURPOSE
While we’re all for an entirely new lounge suite, perhaps your budget won’t extend this far. So spend your money cleverly. First, declutter. Then consider your layout – change it around if need be, consider introducing an item from another room, and think carefully about your centrepiece. This is where you can spend the bulk of your budget – whether it be the velvet armchair you can’t stop thinking about, a dining setting, marble coffee table, statement rattan sideboard or exquisite pendant light.
LIGHT IT UP
Speaking of pendants, they don’t all come with an excessive price tag. So if you’ve spent most of your cash on something other than lighting, this is where you can really complete the look. From a feature pendant, to a modern floor lamp, and even updating your ceiling shades, it won’t cost a fortune but can really transform your space.
