Do you have expensive taste but are living on a budget? Luckily, style does not have to be defined by your finances. You can create a luxurious living room that will make your guests believe that you spent more than you really did. When designing a luxe living room on a small budget, it is important to keep in mind:

    • How much space you have
    • What items you need to replace (as opposed to wanting to replace)

We are going to get you started by providing you with some ideas turn your casual living room into an expensive-looking space. Let’s take a look! 

  • Large-Scale Artwork

You can easily create a focal point by hanging up a large-scale piece of artwork. A unique, oversized piece of artwork suspended on one of the living room walls will create an area of interest. This is an easy and inexpensive way to add a wow factor to the space. To make it even more budget-friendly, you can search through thrift stores and flea markets for the perfect piece. You do not have to stick to traditional art forms; large textiles pieces work as well.  

  • Add Some Texture

Embrace different types of textures within the space. Swap out your plain couch pillows for textured, woven ones. You can even purchase such pillows for relatively low prices.  Layer materials like metal, woods and glass textures within the space to create more interest.  

  • Blend Your Television with The Decor

There is nothing upscale about a big television placed front and center in your living room. Try to look for ways you can camouflage your television. You can try minimizing its appearance by creating a gallery wall around it or storing it inside of cabinets. Just be sure to conceal your cable box and other television accessories. You can also mount the television up over an architectural feature such as the fireplace to help create more balance. 

  • Upgrade The Hardware

Away with bland standard curtain rods; add style by purchasing curtain rods and accessories with a finish and style that matches the room’s decor. Stylish curtain hardware can be an inexpensive way to add your personal touch and style. 

  • Organize The Room

You cannot create a chic space with clutter in the room. Simplify the living room by removing things that do not contribute to the decor. If you find yourself needing a place for smaller items, you can use a tray to keep the coffee table tidy and organized.
