Interior design is a great way to break the monotony of everyday life during the globes current pandemic lockdown restrictions. Whilst splashing the cash may not be as easy as it used to be, you can still give you living room a new lease of life with a few simple changes that don’t necessarily have to break the bank.

Below, I have compiled a shortlist of highly impactful changes that will give you living room the boost it most deserves. So, let’s waste no further time and dive straight into it!

Quick Changes That Make A Difference

The following is a list of highly impactful changes that will give your living room a totally new feel.


Lighting is absolutely essential when it comes to your living room. Your living room is one of the main rooms in the house, it’s a place for relaxation and the furniture/lighting should reflect this. For that reason, investing in the correct lighting is one of the best ways to change the whole feel of your living room space.

It doesn’t have to be expensive, sometimes it can be as simple as changing the light shades to allow for a softer light and adding reading lights for a different ambience. Dimming sidelights are readily available and give the living room an entirely new dynamic - take the photo above, the lighting would be softer with dimming sidelights, at a relatively cheap price too.

Picture Frames

Another great way to change the feel of your living room is a picture frame. They not only house beautiful art pieces, family portraits, and landscapes, but they also give the room a centrepiece or focal point that makes the space feel complete. A picture frame can be relatively inexpensive and can seriously improve the feeling of your living space. 

New Wallcoverings

The walls that make up your living room are your canvas when it comes to style and room aesthetics. They are the base of your room and are hugely important when designing a room around a theme, for a certain feel or atmosphere.

Changing up the wallpaper or painting over the walls is a simple and quick way to give your living room a completely new style. A feature wall with interesting wallpaper is an easy way to do this. It doesn’t have to be costly either. You could also look at wall stickers or wall murals. Try looking in the sales for unusual wallpaper styles or decals


Living room accessories come in many shapes and sizes, but ultimately, we’re talking about pillows, throws, and side tables, as well as the little things like candles and coffee table books.  These, for me, are the cherries on the cake. The final touches to a room that finishes it off nicely. They will give your living that stylish touch that could complete the room nicely.

Try something new with your living accessories, like going for a new theme. Coastal-themed living room accessories can add a dash of calm and elegance to your space, perfect for relaxing and spending time with the family. It's a little bit like taking a piece of the beach into your living space.

Final Thoughts

So, there you have it, a quick guide on how to give your living room a new lease of life without splashing the cash.
