I always love to make changes to my home. It gives me such a renewed feeling! One thing that I try do when making changes is to keep the cost down. There are many small, low budget changes that can be made to any room that can make a worled of difference! Below we’ll cover some of those changes.
The living room is one of my favorite rooms to change since families generally spend the most time in that room. The layout can get old and boring real quickly. I first like to start with simply rearranging the furniture. This can create more space and give the room a new feel. You can also decorate the sofa and loveseat with colorful decorative pillows. That would give any room a different look.
Another way to spruce up any room would be to add photos to the walls. These could be contemporary photos, abstract photos, or even just family photos. This is like adding your own personal touch to the room. Matching photos and pillows can add a huge burst of color to a room.
There are also small pieces of furniture that you could add for a nice change. This could be a small accent table, a sofa table, or even floor lamps. They don’t have to be expensive pieces. However, you do want to make sure that with these accent pieces you are not cluttering up the room. Is very easy to get carried away and end up with a huge junk pile.
Adding plants is another way to change the look of the room. Even if you don’t have a green thumb, you can still add beautiful artificial plants to a room. Artificial plants are easier to maintain anyhow. They could be placed on top of cupboards, near windows, or on end tables. There are even small artificial trees available to add a natura look.
One of the most common and most cost efficient ways to change a room drastically is to change the paint on the walls. This can be a huge change especially if the walls are originally white. Every color does not fit in every room so you will want to be careful when choosing a color. I have even seen rooms with multiple colors that looked great!
Lastly, the best way to make a huge impact on the room is with a DEEP CLEANING. The best part about this suggestion is that it’s absolutely free! Often times, we don’t notice stains on the wall or carpet because we see and walk past them on a daily basis. I was amazed at how different my bedroom and living room looked after washing the walls and scrubbing the carpets and all it took was my effort.
I hope the suggestions on how to make small changes for a huge impact on your rooms were very helpful. These are ways that you can make a change for a little bit of money or even no money. For some of the suggestions, you may even have lying what you need around in the attic or garage. Now it’s time to get started on making those changes!
