The living room is an area of the home where you can enjoy time with your family or relax after a long day. When you don’t have a lot of money in your budget, it can sometimes be hard to remodel the living room the way you want. Talk to a few contractor leads to gather ideas about how to renovate the space in a way that doesn’t involve a lot of money but still gives you the beautiful design that you will enjoy. There are also a few renovation ideas that will give you a little more space for storage of everything from books to games that you play as a family. A contractor can examine the walls to determine which ones are the strongest before removing a portion of the wall to install a recessed bookcase or shelves. This is often a better idea than leaving a bookcase along a wall in the living room for it to take up space.

A comfortable living room is ideal if you like being cozy. However, this design can get boring rather quickly. Renovate the living room to include a fresh coat of paint in a neutral color with a blend of various types of furniture for an elegant and charming atmosphere. Remove the carpet in the room to exchange it for hardwood. Add slip covers to the couch for a new look without spending a lot of money on getting new furniture. Darker elements in the room combine well with walls that are a lighter color.
Don’t be afraid to add color to the living room. It doesn’t have to be boring. Graphic designs on the pillows and the rug against furniture and flooring of a solid color will give depth to the room. Furniture in black and white is a modern trend with accent pillows in either black and white patterns or brighter colors, like teal, yellow or orange. When you use a brighter color, the other decorations in the room should be in shades of that color as well so that everything in the living room flows together.
