9 Inexpensive Ways to Brighten Your

Living Space

Are you looking to breath some life back into your living space for the summer time? Here are nine simple and inexpensive ways to do it. 


Clutter is never a welcome guest when it comes to your living space. We all have busy lives, so sometimes it can be hard to keep our living rooms as clean as we may want them to be. However, I can assure you that getting rid of the mess will only eliminate your stress. Cleaning up your surroundings is a surefire and costless way to get your living area to look more livley. 

Rearrange Space

An easy way to put some life back into your living space at no cost is to simply rearrange your furniture. You may like how it is already, but you’d be surprised how much one moved end table or desk can entirely change the depth of the space that you’re in. Rearranging your furniture is a quick and easy way to make an old room feel new again, as well as more spacious if you’re dealing with a smaller area. 

New Couch, Couch Covers 

Need some color in your living space? A quick way to do that is to get yourself a new couch cover. The great thing about couch covers is that they’re inexpensive, and there’s no commitment. You can also change them whenever you’d like, and can pick what colors and patterns you incorporate based on the season or the vibe you’re trying to achieve in your living space. Plus, they’re a great way to add some texture and motifs into your decoration. 

New Pillows, Pillow Covers

Content with your couch but still want to create a refreshed feeling in your space? Get some new pillow covers, or invest in a couple of new throw pillows. Swapping out pillow covers and changing the selection of throws on your seating is a great way to add some life, comfort and variety into your living space. You can play around with patterns, material, shape, size and much more. Throw pillows can entirely change the vibe that you get from a space, and add some vibrance to an otherwise simple space. This is also a great trick if you’re a renter and want to add some color to your space and don’t have the authority to paint your walls. 

Brighten up Accents 

An easy and quick way to put some brightness back into your living space is to play around with your accent decorations. Accent decorations provide a great opportunity to add a splash of color, personality and nuance to your living space. By being creative with the way you accent your room, you can still achieve a lively feeling while staying minimalistic with your budget and furnishings.

Add Some Light

A great and inexpensive way to brighten up your living space is to get some light in! Take advantage of natural lighting by placing mirrors near the windows. Mirrors are an affordable way to provide an illusion of space without having to break down walls. Additionally, investing in an accent standing lamp is a great way to incorporate some light into your living space while keeping the personality of your space intact. If you’re feeling really adventurous, get a colored lamp shade so you can play around with more fun lighting scenarios. 

Introduce Some House Plants 

An amazing way to really open up your living space is to bring some greenery into it. Whether they be real or faux plants, plants are an inexpensive and great way to add some color to your space. While you play around with what kind of foliage you include in your home, you can also take the opportunity to play around with different kinds of plant potters. If you already have enough plants, changing your potters is a great way to breathe some new life into your space. 

Area Rugs 

Looking for a way to add a new pattern into your living space? A great way to do this is by adding a new area rug into your room. Area rugs are a great way to compliment the colors that you already have in your color palette, as well as add new ones. They’re also a great tool to add some symmetry to your space, and give you an outline to work with when it comes to rearranging your furniture.

Establish an Accent Wall

Accent walls are the key to adding color into your home without having to spend a lot of money. Instead of changing your wallpaper throughout your whole space, or painting an entire new room, you can achieve the same new feeling by just choosing one wall to act as an accent wall. Put your favorite paintings and eccentric decor on this wall to fully bring it together. Not to mention, it makes a great place to take instagram pictures!
