Today we bring you some ideas for your living room decor. If the living room is the space where you usually spend the max amount of time, it’s important to make this room feel like a reflection of you. Even if you live in a rental, there are plenty of ways to personalize this space, without spending more than a month’s worth of rent.

Upgrade your coffee table
Not only is building your own coffee table potentially cheaper than buying one, but it also allows you to create a piece that’s the exact right height and length for your couch. If this is your first foray into woodworking, start out with an easy project.
Build your own walls
If your living room happens to share space with your kitchen or bedroom, divvy up the areas using a DIY wall divider. The folding geometric screen above out of plywood, but you can also separate the space using a tension rod and long curtain panels.
Try temporary wallpaper
One of the miracle adhesive materials praised by renters everywhere, removal wallpaper lets you add color and pattern to the walls without kissing goodbye to your security deposit.
DIY some large-scale art
If you don’t want to splurge on wallpapering the entire room, go for some big art pieces. If there’s a specific color you’re coveting but your landlord won’t give you the green light on painting, try painting large canvases with sample pots of the hue.
Create a custom rug
Although you typically can’t change the flooring in your rental space, you can DIY a large rug that will dramatically transform the look of the room. One bonus of using this design in a rental is that if you live with children (or accident-prone adults), the rug will help protect the floor below.
Switch up the lighting
Replacing your rental’s unattractive overhead fixture with a new chandelier can literally make you see the entire room in a new light. If your rental living room already has a hard-wired pendant lamp, you can easily swap in a fresh fixture.
Carve out space for storage
If your rental is tiny, creating your own furniture lets you sneak in extra storage spots. Create a space for storage where you can put books and other belongings.
Make it yours!
Make your home space reflect your personality. In the current times, interior design has become intrinsic to this expression of the self, almost becoming a story told through design.
