Living room Give your a facelift on a budget


The living room is a place where families spend a lot of their time. It is a sacred space where games are played, books are read, stories are shared and memories are built. If it is time to spruce up your living room, there are many budget-friendly ways to do so.

First things first

Adding a fresh coat of paint to the walls is a great way to give your living room a fresh, new look. In fact, painting a room can make it appear newer. Plus, it is always exciting to choose a new colour and there are many options to complete your design. And to save money, you could decide to paint the room yourself. It is less expensive and can reduce your overall budget.

From yours to mine

Another inexpensiv­e way to spruce up your living room is by refurbishi­ng your own furniture. Consider hitting some garage sales on a Saturday morning to find used furniture and then engage your inner artist to fix it up. You can refinish wood pieces such as coffee tables, bookshelve­s and end tables or recover living room furniture such as couches, armchairs or chaise lounges. The options are endless!

Be on the hunt

Thrift stores are not only a good place to find furniture, but they are also incredible treasure troves full of interestin­g pieces and knick-knacks just waiting for a new home. If you are willing to take the time, you can find some fantastic pieces to add to your living room, such as lamps, large rugs, paintings, pictures, decorative knick-knacks and more.

Finishing touches

The floor is another part of your living room that can be upgraded or changed at a reasonable price. If you have the skills and the enthusiasm, you could change the type of flooring yourself. There are many diverse options to help complete your desired look. Plus, another option is to buy a large rug for your living room if you cannot afford to do your floors just yet.

With spring in the air, sprucing up a living room can be fun and exciting.
