These easy updates freshen up your space without breaking the bank

Is your living room starting to look a little worn out? Freshening up your home's most-visited space doesn't have to take up a ton of time or money. These easy updates get your room looking gorgeous and -- bonus -- cost $100 or less to pull off. 

Create a Gallery Wall

Hanging artwork and photos in an artful arrangement is a budget-friendly way to fill up a big blank wall. Use frames of a similar color or shape for a pulled-together look that's still completely homey.

Swap Out Throw Pillows

Bring in a Bold Rug

Update Table Lamps

A new pair of lamps on your side tables in an on-trend material like mercury glass can revitalize any room.

Score a Wow-Worthy Accessory

Z Gallerie

Even just one new accessory can make a room feel fresh and exciting, so long as it's bold enough (and no, we don't mean expensive!).

Increase Seating Capacity


Toss a couple of patterned poufs in front of the coffee table or in a corner for instant color and handy overflow seating. Since poufs are so small, it's okay to choose ones with an extra bold pattern.

Choose Multi-Purpose Storage Pieces


A storage ottoman with clean lines not only looks smart, but it also helps clear away any untidy-looking miscellany. Plus, it can have your space company-ready in no time flat.

Replace Faded Curtain Panels

Crate & Barrel

Faded or torn curtains or drapes can make a space look tired and outdated. Swap out tired window coverings with a new pair of curtain panels in an unexpected color or pattern.

Cozy Up

West Elm

A throw blanket is not only a warm item to cozy up with over a book or TV binge, but it's also an affordable way to add color, texture and pattern.

Add Some Greenery


Even a single pop of green can invigorate a lackluster corner or surface. Potted succulents or a terrarium filled with with ferns or begonias look great and require next-to-no maintenance.
