If you’re finding it hard to say goodbye to summer and outdoor living, one way to lift your spirits is to give your home a mini makeover before the autumn and winter takes hold.
Here are 3 simple ways to give your living room a lift for the new season without damaging your bank balance:
- Add an inviting glow with a pair of pink lamps
While you don’t want to go full out just yet with cosy cushions and throws, buying a couple of new lamps is an easy way to inject a cosy glow and add a little colour.
Pink is very much in vogue right now, so why not look for a pair of pink lamps to cast a rosy hue over your living space?
Exchange your old carpet for a laminate floor
Although carpet can provide a cosy feeling throughout the autumn and winter months, an old and tired carpet can really detract from a feeling of homeliness. So why not rip it up and replace it with laminate flooring?
If you’re looking to buy laminate flooring on a budget, many DIY stores have a great selection or check out your local flooring showroom for a wider choice.
Shop your own home
If you don’t have a lot of money to spare, have a look around your home and see what could be repurposed.
Perhaps you’ve got a rug in your bedroom that would look fantastic on your new laminate floor?
Maybe you could move a piece of art from your hallway into your living room, or maybe even pot up some plants from your garden to keep summer going a little longer in your home?
With a little thought and creativity, you can add subtly change the look of your living room, without spending a fortune.
