Seasonal changes often inspire us to make changes to our lives and homes. The warm weather and beautiful blooms of summer inspire change. Use this energy to motivate yourself to update your living room and any other rooms in your home that need it. If you’re worried about budgeting, that’s OK. There are many affordable ways to revamp your home this summer.
Bring In Fresh Florals
One of the easiest ways to add new life to a space is with plants. You can bring any plants you want into your living room, but fresh flowers are a seasonal favorite. They’re readily available in your garden or at the store, and they immediately brighten up your space. Potted florals or other types of plants are other options if you want your investment to last longer. It’s OK if you don’t have a green thumb. There are realistic fake plants that you can buy and put in your living room instead.
Thrift New Artwork
It’s easy to switch out wall art, and the way to do so on a budget is to shop at local thrift stores. This year’s spring cleaning probably inspired many people to donate their old artwork to local thrift stores and shop for something new. You can take advantage of this and turn their trash into your treasure. If you want to give it a brand-new look, consider changing the frame. You can get it professionally reframed, which is cheaper than buying a brand-new piece of art, or you can paint the frame yourself.
Paint an Accent Wall
If your creative abilities go beyond painting a frame, then you should consider painting an accent wall in your living room. The key to coordinating decor and living room colors is to pick only one or two accent features. You don’t want to overwhelm the space. This new accent will completely change the look of your space, and since it’s only one wall, it’s an affordable update that almost anyone can do.
Change Living Room Accessories
Maybe you don’t want to make big updates, and that’s OK. Changing your living room accessories—rugs, throw pillows, and slipcovers—is a great way to update your living room with small changes. If you’re not using slipcovers, consider adding them as an accessory. There are many reasons why your furniture should have slipcovers, and one is that they’re easy to change whenever you want. That gives you an easy opportunity to update your living room furniture without spending a lot of money.
These affordable ways to update your living room this summer will bring fresh energy into your home without breaking the bank. Your wallet will thank you, and you’ll love the way your updated home looks.
