Living Room Wall Decorating Ideas on a Budget

Decorating your home is not easy, especially your living room. This is the first room your guests will visit and hence, it will create the first impression. A lot of time and energy go into making a great living room design. Paying attention to every small element is essential. This includes the interior wall design as well. There are many wall decoration ideas you can consider. However, you will have to be selective when choosing an option if you have a small budget. While some are economical, there are many expensive options also. If you are not sure about which living room wall decor you should choose for your living room wall when you have a low budget, here are a few ideas you can consider:

01 of 06 Create an accent wall 

Many people might argue that painting is expensive. Although painting your home will cost you a lot of money, it will be very cheap if you paint only one wall. Even painting one wall with different colours in your living room can make a huge difference. To create an accent wall, paint all three walls any light shade and apply one or a combination of contrasting colours to one wall. This will allow you to make the interiors more colourful. To add more visual interest, you can opt for textured painting designs as well. They are perfect to highlight the wall and attract the eyes to it. You can hire professionals to do the task. However, you can always do it yourself if you are low on budget. A common DIY accent wall painting design you can consider is painting with a sponge roller. After painting a coat of paint, apply another coat of a different colour using the sponge roller. It will create a very appealing look. In case you do not want to buy a sponge roller, you can paint the wall by dabbing it with a sponge. Painting any small shape repeatedly on the wall with a different colour can help to create an interesting look as well.

A smart way to create a beautiful wall design without burning a hole in your pocket is by sticking wall decals. Wall decals are basically stickers for walls that can be applied or replaced anytime. People who get bored of the wall decor easily can consider opting for this option. Also, they are easily available in many designs, colours, and sizes. You can easily find an option that perfectly fits in your living room decor. These are great for designing the living room wall if you live in a rented apartment.

Hanging artwork has always been a very common wall decor item to enhance the aesthetic beauty of the living room. Wealthy people spend a lot of money to buy beautiful paintings drawn by renowned artists.

04 of 06 Hang photos 

If you want to give the living room decor a more personalised look, you can consider hanging photos of you and your family. These can include your vacation photos with your family or just your portraits. Do not hang just one large photo. Instead, opt for many small photos and hang them together in groups. This will help to create a beautiful interior wall design and attract the eyes of whoever visits your living room. To add more visual interest, choose paintings of different sizes and shapes. 

05 of 06 Empty frames

Hanging mirrors on your wall can help to make your living room more appealing on a budget. Mirrors are perfect for your living room wall decor if it is small.

A large mirror might be more functional but choosing small mirrors will be more beneficial for creating a beautiful living room wall decor. Opt for many small mirrors of different shapes and sizes and hang them together on the walls. It will help to create a beautiful wall gallery of mirrors.
