Looking to upgrade your living room space? Make your living room look like $1 million with these 10 great ways to get the living room you’ve always dreamed of. Your home will thank you!
Upgrade Your Art
If you want your living room to look like a millionaire’s paradise, then one of the best ways is to upgrade your art. You don’t need overpriced wallpapers or a cooky decor. Instead, invest in inexpensive wall art. Want to make this upgrade even more affordable? Design your own DIY art!
Use Light Colors
By using light colors on your walls (think creams, whites and non-heavy hues) you can create a brighter, cleaner look. These more natural colors are also calming and have an uncanny way of making everything in your living room look more expensive!
Upgrade Your Lighting Game
Boring light fixtures won’t do anything to upgrade your living room decor. Instead, switch out old lighting fixtures and opt for something a bit more interesting and modern. You can use thrifted chandeliers or interesting and cheap pendant lights to create an affordable, yet trendy, new look that you’ll absolutely adore.
More Than Just Books
A bookcase is great for storing books (obviously!) but it’s also a great way to showcase some of your favorite design elements. Simply take away a few of the books and add some interesting pieces of decor. Think sculptures, storage boxes and planted pots. This creates an interesting and balanced display that really adds a touch of class to your living space.
If you really want to add a touch of the millionaire to your living spaces, then think about adding a rug. This is the best way to accentuate a color palette or add a bit of texture to a space. This makes things not only pop, but it really does add a certain special something to your space that it didn’t have before.
Throw Pillows Are Everything
Throw pillows really are one of the best ways to add a bit of taste to any decor. Slightly worn sofas are suddenly transformed into upscale havens with this simple addition. By mixing up pillow patterns, sizes and shades, you can also really add a touch of “something extra” to your living room.
It’s All in the Mirror
Mirrors make your living spaces feel larger without monopolizing on space. If you’re trying to make your living room look like a million bucks, then dramatic or oversized mirrors offer a particular look, while several small ones can add a more chic appearance.
Contrast Is Your Friend
Creating contrast is one of the sure-fire ways to upgrade your living space and really get it looking great. Painting is an inexpensive way to achieve this quickly, while wallpaper is the pricier way to go. Once your contrast paint-work is done, invest is a few colorful accent pieces (like furniture or other decor), which can add an extra splash of awesome to your space.
Add a Touch of Drama
Sure, high ceilings are great, but how can you get that look without physically (and expensively) renovating your home? Simply invest in some long, dramatic drapes — that’s how! Hang long drapes from where the the wall meets the ceiling and leave a little fabric to pool on the floor. You’ll be shocked by how quickly your living room space is transformed!
Fresh Flowers Are Your Friend
You can add vibrant color and a touch of life to any living space by investing in fresh flowers. Bud jars and houseplants are also a great way to add a touch of nature to your living room and really brings the rest of your decor together.
