Decorating your living room can be expensive, especially when it comes to shopping for the most stylish, practical and comfortable choices. However, if you’re starting your spring cleaning and sprucing then there are definitely ways to decorate while saving money.

Sure, there are expensive options and designer items that you long to have in your home. But sometimes making large purchases with hefty price tags just isn’t necessary when there are other, more cost effective, ways of making your living room beautiful.  

So, what are those ways? Let’s take a look!

Shop with a strategy for living rooms

If you’re looking for a specific piece of furniture or item, it pays to shop strategically. The best time to shop is when retailers are clearing out old stock, or have a sale on. 

Timing is everything if you want that solid oak sideboard you’ve been eyeing up for months. You just have to make sure you get the timing right.

Get crafty

Hanging artwork in your living is a sure way to make it look luxurious and expensive. That being said, artwork can be pricey, especially from independent and local artists.

Another way to add some creativity and individuality to your home is to hang prints instead. Prints are budget-friendly and there are so many options available, from abstract art to clean-cut designs and more. 

Hit the charity shops

Shopping at the charity store is a fantastic way to find eclectic pieces that you wouldn’t normally find elsewhere. Plus, shopping this way also means you are giving back and supporting a good cause.

Often, you can find some real gems hidden in charity shops and for a fraction of the price of new. Scope out pictures frames, lamp shades, cushions, ornaments and so much more to give your living room a vintage-lux feel.

Wallpaper just the one wall

Wallpaper doesn’t have to go on all four walls in your living room. To keep costs down, paper one wall and make an eyecatching statement by doing so. Perhaps paper the wall behind your sofa and have it as the focal point of the room.
