6 Tips to Decorate your Living Room on a Budget

Embellishing the rooms in your home and giving them a new atmosphere doesn't have to involve a large budget. A few inexpensive materials and, above all, lots of ideas will give your home the touch of elegance or originality that you want. New paint, cushions, plants, lamps or even mirrors, discover six tips to decorate your living room on a budget.

A colourful wall

To decorate your living room on a budget, all you need is a little paint. Paint one wall of the room in a bright colour that is different from the colours of the other walls or, on the contrary, close to the other colours so as to create a monochrome. This change will bring a different, more dynamic atmosphere to your living room. If you like originality, you can also create geometric shapes, checkerboards or coloured stripes, still on one of your walls.

Cushions in different colours

An assortment of cushions on your sofa is a good way to add a colourful touch to your living room. Cushions don't usually cost much and can brighten up the centrepiece of your room: the sofa. Try to vary the colours, plain or patterned, to brighten up the living room. The only difficulty is that you need to mix colours while maintaining a certain harmony with the decor.

Plants in your living room

What if you went green? At least in your living room. A few flowers and other plants will bring a touch of nature into your room, without making your wallet lighter. Green plants have a double advantage: in addition to being pleasing to the eye, they also make the room look healthier. You can also use seasonal flowers to add a touch of colour to your natural decor. Cactus, ferns, bonzai… It's up to you to decide which plants will fit best in your living room.

Painted or personalised furniture

Just like your wall, painting your furniture will allow you to decorate your living room at a low cost. This is an ideal way to give your furniture a new lease of life or bring a new atmosphere to the room without changing your furniture. The best part? You can do it yourself by having the right tools, paint, and coating depending on the furniture's texture. You can easily add a graphic touch to all the furniture in your living room.

New light fittings

Decorating your living room on a budget is great, but you need a good light source to show off your work. Indeed, light is very important in creating and feeling an atmosphere. Even if nothing beats sunlight, you should be able to find "classic" lamps, hanging lamps or wall lights for a very reasonable budget, in order to make your new decoration shine.

Mirrors on the wall

Small designer mirrors to fix to the wall, large classic mirrors to put on the wall or even, why not, several small mirrors assembled or scattered on your walls... Depending on your desires and your budget, all possibilities are open to you to bring a reflective touch to your living room. An accessory which, in addition to its decorative aspect, will give the illusion of enlarging the room. A good decorative idea, especially if your living room is small.
