Design / Style Tips For Decorating Your Living Room On A Budget Revamping your home decor doesn’t have to be a major project nor a costly expense.

Update lampshades with more contemporary shapes in simple neutral shades, such an easy and simple fix, it really will transform your room. Painting is the simple fix to transforming any room, but instead of repainting a whole room, just paint one wall in a focal colour or paint a contrasting rectangle over a sofa to use as a gallery space. Paint can also be added to the insides of bookshelves or units in an unexpected colour or paint your ceiling a lighter version of the wall colour you choose. All these small changes will make a real difference to the feel of any room. Updating your window dressings doesn’t have to mean a complete overhaul of your curtains, just changing something as simple as your curtain pole or tie backs can make a big difference to your windows overall look. Pulling a room together by choosing two contrast colours like black and white or white and a bright colour like purple and repeating the theme throughout with a contrasting wall or pillows on a sofa will give your room a really modern stylish feel. Consider your clutter, too many home decor accessories can really make a room look small, try boxing them all away and getting them out one by one to see which ones have the most impact, as they say less is more.

If you have existing paintings try moving them around to different walls or rooms, it will be like seeing them for the first time. Light can also be maximised in any darker room by hanging a framed mirror directly opposite the window. Trying to complete a decorating project on a shoestring budget isn’t easy. But, with a commitment of time an effort, it can be done. Use these tips to get you started. Don’t be afraid to run with them and really make your interior design your own.
