3 Simple

What if we told you you don't have to spend a lot of money on upgrading your living room? And that all the renovations you needed would involve online shopping and a nail? Here is how to give your home a makeover without breaking the bank!

Sofa Cover

You don’t have to buy all new couches and recliners to give your living room a new look. There are lots of online stores that sell universal covers to fit any couch or armchair. They are affordable, machine washable, and can hide any torn or worn-out upholstery. These covers have rubber hemlines (just like a fitted sheet), making them easy to drape over your pre-existing furniture.


It is safe to assume that your living room already has several pillows. But you don’t have to get all new ones to freshen things up a little. You can simply get new pillowcases and watch your old pillows come to life. The main advantage of getting a case is that they are cheaper and easier to clean. Plus, you can get a bunch of patterns and styles and play around with different options!

Wall Art

Local markets and local artists are usually happy to put their names out there without charging the price a well-established artist would normally take. Scroll through Instagram and Pinterest to find the ones that best suit your taste and mount it on the desired wall. An even cheaper option will also send you shopping online — this time for wall decals. This option is affordable and it doesn’t require any hammer or nails. Score!
