Easy Living Room Makeover Ideas
Some people love decorating. They like nothing better than shopping for homeware. For them, a weekend of crafting or DIY is heaven.
This isn’t the case for everyone. An awful lot of us don’t have the time or the spare cash to makeover our living room every year, or so. Fortunately, there are plenty of quick and easy ways to give your living room a fresh look without breaking the bank or swallowing up your whole weekend doing DIY. Check out these easy living room makeover ideas.
New Soft Furnishings and Rugs
Updating your cushions and throws is just one good example of this. These items are not expensive and finding ones you like, online, will rarely take you more than 30 minutes. Once they arrive it should not take you longer than 15 minutes to switch your old covers and throws for your new ones. You will be pleasantly surprised by just how different a room will look when you change the colour and style of your soft furnishings.
Update the Walls
If you have the time, repainting a room is a good way to give a space a new look and feel. However, this is far from the only way to freshen up your walls.
Using Wall Stickers
Instead, you could go online and buy a few wall stickers. These days, they come in a huge range of designs. If you do not see any that you like you can just have custom wall decals made. All you need to do is to find a high resolution image that you like and send it away to be printed up into a sticker. Typically, choosing and applying your wall sticker will take you about 90 minutes.
Using Canvas Prints
If you want something a bit more traditional, you can just as easily have your favourite images turned into canvas prints. The cost of these has fallen drastically, over the past few years. If you hang them on your existing hooks it will only take you minutes to update your walls using this option.
Another super easy option is to pull together your favourite photos of your pets, family and friends and use them to decorate your walls. You can easily have good quality copies printed out by your local photo shop. How you mount them is entirely up to you. As you can see from this website there are lots of ways to display your photos and use them to decorate your home.
Revamping your Window Coverings
Curtains can be expensive items and hanging them properly is not easy. It takes a lot of time to ruche the fabric properly, so that they hang well. If you do not have the budget to replace your existing curtains is to edge them with a contrasting fabric or ribbon. To do this, all you need to do is to take your curtains down and use some fabric glue to add the new edging. Provided you do not flatten out the curtains you can then just hang them straight back up again. You can also edge your tie backs, so they match.
Updating your Living Room Furniture on a Budget
If you need a new sofa, or other items of furniture, consider buying them second-hand. You can usually find something suitable on Facebook and other social media sites. It is surprising what you can pick up without having to pay very much.
