Have you recently entered your living room and been overwhelmed by what it looks like? Do you want to make some changes without breaking the bank? This feeling is too common! Everyone needs time to repair their kitchens and bedrooms, but the living room remains relatively intact for years. We’ll give you a few simple ways to give your salon the makeover it deserves without breaking the bank.
Declutter Your Room
One of the easiest ways to make your living room more comfortable is to get rid of unnecessary Extras. If you have exhibited a large collection of items, you should either store them neatly in a Curio closet, place them in a storage matter in a closet, or even give away items that have no financial or sentimental value.
Look at your Walls. A gallery style wall is a fantastic way to show off your travels, family or other beautiful photos. Several gallery-style walls may seem cluttered.
If your walls are bare, you should buy a beautiful work of art from a local artist. This will help you avoid buying multiple items to hang, make sure you have a unique piece, and help your local art scene.
Also do not forget to hide electrical cables and wires. Although very necessary, they are unsightly and make even the cleanest areas disorganized.
Clean the room
Once you have downgraded the room and your walls, you should consider a thorough cleaning. Dust from the top of the room to the bottom (Yes, This includes ceiling fans) and vacuum or sweep and Mop.
In addition to basic dust removal and vacuuming or sweeping and wiping, take into account the condition of your furniture. If you have upholstered furniture (usually sofas, Loveseats, and chairs), use a vacuum cleaner to remove surface dirt, hair (from humans and pets), and other debris.
If you have the time and money to do this, this would be the perfect time to have carpets and upholstery cleaned professionally. If you don’t have the Budget for a professional cleaning, rent the machines you need for a day to complete your deep cleaning process.
Sometimes even the cleanest carpet still looks dirty. If this is the matter in your living room, a new carpet could be the perfect choice. Carpets can usually be found at a relatively low cost and always in a range of colors; be careful if you adjust them too tightly to your current flooring!
Finding the right furniture
Replacing your entire living room may not be within your Budget, but the good news is that you can keep most of your current furniture and opt for a single statement piece. A statement piece of furniture is something that immediately catches the eye, bold, unique and, of course, a piece that you like!
While there are several items you can choose as a statement piece, make sure it is functional! Such a piece could be a uterine chair. This Type of Chair is also elegant and distinctive easily.
Other bold options can be a large bookcover or a funky Lamp that you found while hunting for bargains at the flea market. The idea is to limit the amount of Pizazz you have in your living room, but that you always have furniture that speaks a little about you to your guests.
Another way to rearrange your living room like without spending a penny is to rearrange the furniture. If you’ve always wanted to see what your room would look like with the sofa on a particular wall or if the chairs were moved to a specific area, try it! You can always return the furniture to where you were if you do not like the result.
The only type of furniture to avoid, if possible, is temporary furniture – not so much inexpensive furniture, but items that are not intended for this use from the very beginning. Old boxes may look rustic in some houses, but after several hours of work and love, they look like this. Do not use non-furniture as furniture if you are not ready to put a little effort.
Lighting and colors
You already know that a dark room feels smaller, while a lighter room feels larger. If you don’t have a lot of natural light, consider a DIY paint job to brighten (and refresh) your living space.
If painting is not an Option and you have very little natural light, you will probably need help. The overhead lights in your living room probably do a good job of lighting up your space, but they can also be a bit harsh.
Floor and Table Lamps can usually help solve this Dilemma. Remember that too many types of lamps can make your room more crowded than it should be. Consider using dimmable lights to adjust the mood you want to create.
Make the necessary changes
Hopefully these tips will give you an insight into how to achieve your desired salon within your Budget. The key to success with your salon makeover will start with decluttering and cleaning. Once you clear these obstacles, you’ll quickly see areas of your space that need a little HELP-and can be left alone.
Do not be afraid to use a splash of color, a unique piece of furniture or an object that does not fully correspond to the design of your living room. Be creative, as part of reason; keep trying until your room feels perfect!
