5 Budget-Friendly Ways to Give Your Living Area a New Look

It’s no secret that the living area is considered as one of the busiest parts of a home. Aside from moonlighting as an entertainment room, it’s also where we welcome guests and even enjoy our meals. Since it’s often used, it’s a must to have an inviting and functional living area. From keeping it clean and cozy to bringing in new décor pieces every once in a while, we invest in easy updates to keep it picture-perfect.

Bored with how your living area looks? Before the first quarter of the year ends, you may want to save up for a mini living area makeover that you can accomplish on your own. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to spend beyond your means to give your home a new look. Knowing what to buy and what to do with it can help you style your space and make it look brand-new.

Style your living area for P25, 000 or less with these tips and essentials:

Spruce up an empty corner with a potted plant.

Building Passion

Indoor plants, succulents, and other green wonders are still go-to additions in any home. Instead of adding another seating piece or a basket in a corner, consider adding a potted plant that will instantly add a refreshing touch to your living area.

A pot of Bamboo Palm can create a tropical feel in your living area while adding height to your space. As an alternative, you can also consider working with Snake Plant and English Ivy as these are known to purify the air as well.

Anchor your living area with an area rug.

Building Passion

Level up your style game with a posh carpet or area rug that will separate your living area from the rest of the condo unit. Pick a neutral-colored rug that will complement the rest of your furniture or a patterned piece that can double as accent. Don’t forget to pick a rug or carpet that fits in the available space.

Maximize space with multipurpose furniture pieces.

Building Passion

To make the most of every inch of space in a condo unit, it’s great to work with multipurpose and space-saving pieces. Instead of adding another chair, you can go for a storage ottoman as it can provide an extra seating space while helping you keep clutter at bay. Another essential you can invest in is a nesting table. It comes in handy when you’re hosting a get-together with friends.

Make the sofa more inviting with pillows and throws.

Building Passion

Styling on a budget? You don’t always have to splurge! Pretty pillows and fluffy throws can liven up a plain sofa and make it more comfortable. As an option, you can also work with a variety of pillow covers instead of buying actual pillows. Mix-and-match your covers – work with colors, prints, and patterns.

Invest in quality dinnerware.

Building Passion

You may not always have friends over, but chic plates, glasses, and cutlery can add pizzazz to a lackluster dining area. Depending on the look you have in mind, you can pick plates with captivating designs like leaves and blooms. You can also keep it simple with dining essentials that showcase a gold trim. Polish the new look of your dining area with an equally beautiful centerpiece such as a vase of faux flowers (for easy maintenance!) or a bowl of fruits.
