Upgrade your Living Room on Shoestring Budget


If you are thinking of renovating, or designing your brand new living room interior, then think of changing the lighting in your house. Lighting makes a huge difference, one doesn’t have to have spend thousands of dollars on interior decoration, just use your imagination and see the world in a new light, we mean that literally!


Do More than Standard

Most contractors will choose standard lighting fixtures but designer light fixtures will add more elegance to your home. There are many categories to choose from, you can go with antique, modern or eclectic. Check out thrift stores and vintage hardware stores for bargain pricing on beautiful antique lights, most of them are restored to preserve the historic period lighting. Do more research more to find out what tickles your fancy!



Sometimes a simple paint job brightens up a room. Choose a color scheme of light, visually receding colors and keep the ceiling white, this will maximize natural light and make the room bright.  For an optimum effect, select soft tones of off-white, blue and green. Light shades and neutrals are all passive colors. These hues not only make a room appear lighter but also bigger.

Planning in a Budget

One of the most important aspects of  ‘redecorating’ is sticking to your budget. Things can go out of hand and pretty quickly! Make a plan with thorough research on costs involved with fancy or antique fixtures. To keep yourself out of serious financial trouble go through your budget plan, break your project up into stages if that helps.
