As we start to leave the cold grasp of Winter and move towards Spring and Summer time, it’s the perfect time to start making changes to your home, ready for the nice weather months which will soon be coming up!
You’ve no doubt heard of the term ‘Spring Cleaning’ but today we’re looking at Spring Redecoration (It’ll catch on one day) and easy changes you can make around your living room, to give you a new look living room for the year ahead! With Christmas close in our rear-view mirrors, we know that budgets can be tight at this time of the year, so we’ll be looking at ways you can redecorate your living room on a tight budget this year!
Paint A Feature Wall
A great cost effective way to give your living room a new look this year, is to implement a feature wall into your living room. For those not in the know, a feature wall is a wall in a room which is a different colour to the rest, which is used to draw attention and create contrast in the living room.
Feature walls are a cost effective way to redecorate your living room, as you only need to buy paint or wallpaper for a single wall of the living room rather than enough for every wall in the room, but the feature wall will change the look of the whole room as it changes the perspective of the living room.
Bring In New Blinds
Another great way to change the look of your living room on a budget is to invest in some new window blinds for your living room. Again, contrast is the name of the game, so you’ll want to find blinds made in a bold colour that creates a good contrast with the rest of your living room’s colour palette.
Adding in new blinds to your living room is a cheap way to add some extra flair to your living room, by purchasing your blinds from an online retailer like DotcomBlinds you can get high quality blinds up to 80% cheaper than from high street retailers. Just make sure to purchase your blind in a fabric that still allows some light to enter the room, so that you don’t need to invest in additional lighting at home.
Repaint Units & Tables
Our final budget friendly way to update the look of your home’s living room is to repaint wooden furniture’s like coffee tables & TV units. By just giving your wooden furniture a fresh coat of paint can make them look brand new, or if you opt for a new colour you can make them look like completely different pieces of furniture.
This should be a cheap project to update your living room as you should only need a minimal amount of paint, depending on how many pieces you’re repainting. But can be even cheaper if you’re only repainting a few small pieces of furniture in which case you may be able to paint everything only using sample tins of paint, rather than purchasing whole large tins.
