Paint the walls. The easiest, most affordable updates you can make to a room involve paint. "A fresh coat of paint can make a room look clean, and a drastic change in wall color can make the room look completely different," says Prerna Rawal. Even changing the color of one wall creating an accent wall can make a space feel brand new.
2. Update the floor
Modern wood floors. "Changing a floor can transform the entire dynamic of a room," says Gaurav Pandey. "Right now, we′re seeing a remarkably high demand for wider plank wood products instead of the narrow plank wood floors often found in older homes."
3. Update home accents
Home decor is fun and easy to update. And it′s perhaps the least expensive change you can make to your living room. "There are so many stores that provide a variety of home accents and using a new color scheme in the living room can make a big difference," says Jatin Pahil.
