Bring in Some Color

Adding some bursts of color with vibrant pillows or curtains is an effective and inexpensive way to completely transform a room without investing in new furniture or painting.

It is an excellent option if you are renting your house because painting really is not an option for you.

Let There Be Light

You need to add some light to accentuate the new colors in your living room. If your room has an overhead light fixture, it is both quite simple and inexpensive to replace the fixture.

You should choose something that has moveable pieces. A lamp with three or four spotlights can do a great job in this case. It will allow you to change the direction of the lighting depending on what you want to illuminate. And light fixtures go for as low as $30.

Paint a Wall

You don’t have to spend lots of hours painting the whole living room. Simply choose one wall and paint it a bold, intense color. The color should match some of the accents present in the room.

This simple thing can add a wonderful depth to your living room. Besides adding a great pop of color, it also adds warmth to the room.

Can’t Afford New Furniture?

If your budget doesn’t allow you to get new furnishings, consider investing in some nice slipcovers instead. For the couch, consider keeping the slipcover one solid color. Then add richly textured accent pillows that accentuate the color of the wall you painted. You can also toss a boldly patterned throw casually over the back of the couch or a rocking chair.

Take the furniture away from the walls. Group them together in an intimate fashion that looks comfy and inviting. If you add an area rug that has the colors of the room, place it at the center of the grouping.
