Covering up all the furniture, getting your old jeans and t-shirt on and preparing to have small flecks of paint on you for the next few weeks is not the ideal way to spend a weekend. However, revamping a room is a rewarding experience that you’ll get enjoyment from every evening, so what if there was a happy medium?
When it comes to sprucing up your living room, here are five great ways to make a difference that are great for the ‘can’t be bothered’ gang.
A Slip-on for the Sofa
A sofa is a big part of any living room, and a new one costs a hell of a lot, as does reupholstering.
Adding a simple slipcover can do one of two things. Introducing a neutral colour means you can create a blank canvas atop which you can accessorise as you feel fit. On the other hand, you can find a bold colour or patterned cover to refocus the room on your sofa.
Very easy, cheap and effective.
A Coffee Table Change A coffee table can be the centre piece of the room. After all, it’s usually in the middle of the room, so bringing in a new table can really change the space.
Again, a very quick fix, and a bit of retail therapy as well.
Reinvent with a Rug Like a coffee table, a rug can be the central attraction of the room. A great way to add some comfort and style, rugs are great at pulling together a room, not to mention they’re good at hiding things as well!
While it’s a single purchase, buying the right rug is a tad more complex than you might think, so make sure you check out a helpful guide first.
Get Painting If you do fancy putting a bit of craft into your relaxed-revamp, you can pick up a paint brush and make some colour changes.
This could be giving the walls a lick of paint with a new colour splash or a liven up of your current scheme. If that seems a bit full on, what about touching up any wood furniture you have in the room?
From a mini-tree in the corner to some tiny succulents scattered around the room, you’ve likely got a trendy plant shop near you that can provide you with some cool, uplifting additions.
When it comes to refreshing your living room, as little as a quick shop online can be enough to give you a new look, so don’t be afraid to take a few shortcuts if you don’t have the time for a full redecoration.
