The living room is a great space in our homes to portray our creativity and personality. No wonder that the focus of home décor should always be on the living room. However, chances are that you might be running on a budget. Thus, adding affordable and easily available artwork could be the possible solution. Here are 5 affordable ideas to add artwork to your living room:
Print Your Own Photos: We live in a time where we’re able to carry a camera with us at all times that’s attached to our mobile smartphones. Better yet, these cameras take pretty quality photos. Run through your photo library and find some photos to have printed. You can get your own, beautiful photos blown up, framed, and/or printed on canvas to hang on your walls.
Add a Bit of Greenery: Get some plants for your home or apartment. Greenery substantially livens up your space. See if your neighbors or friends are ready to share some of their plants with you. Just in case they do, find out a pot to host the plants, and voila you have a good arrangement at your place.
Show your Books: Remember, there can be hardly be anything more beautiful than books. Bring out the best possible books from your collection and arrange them in a harmonious way. The result could be refreshingly handsome and creativity-inducing.
Go Retro: Find some old, vintage objects laying around your home to turn into your own art pieces. For example, a metal wheel, mason jars, and unused plywood can be painted, cleaned, and hung as decorative wall designs. These are also very versatile in the ways in which you can dress them up and put them to use.
Shop Local: The best thing about unique artwork is that it can be found just about anywhere. There are talented artists in every corner of the universe, and it can be really rewarding to support your local neighborhood artists. Search around and find someone who’s selling their artwork for less than market value to get their pieces recognized.
