Add a New Shade of Paint
In case you have run out of living room ideas to give your space a new lease of life, here’s the deal. If your living room needs a totally new color scheme, the best way to do it is with paint! Whether you want to warm things up with a warm shade of latte or just cool things down to neutral with off-white or a light gray. This is an affordable way to add a totally new level of elegance to your living room. The most difficult thing that you’ll have to do is decide on what color you want.
Cute Large Pillows
Adding a few large pillows is the perfect way to add a new touch of elegance to your decor. They can be monochrome or simply match the sofa and surroundings. Two of these won’t set you back to much and they can be sophisticated if you keep an eye out!

New Curtains/Window Treatments
These can really make a living room feel more elegant than it did before! If you’re still rocking vertical blinds, switch out for something new– and tasteful. Whether you opt for curtains or other window treatments, it can be a relatively non-pricey way to make your living room look elegant. Stick with high quality materials for best results.
Hang Up a Large Painting
A large elegant painting, when put up correctly, can do wonders for a living room! It will draw the eye and provide a nice pop of culture for guests to admire. Whether well-known or simply obscure, a solid painting is an affordable investment that is a must-have for any elegant living room.

A Nice Lighting Fixture
It doesn’t have to be a chandelier. There are enough modern art lighting pieces out there that you’ll be able to find something that is both elegant and fits into your budget while also bringing a subtle statement to the room.
Touches of Gold
Whether on a mirror, candlesticks or a frame, adding an accessory piece to your living room that has gold will add a touch of sophistication. It doesn’t have to be real gold, which makes this an easy budget buy to add to anyone’s list.
Go For Less Is More
An uncluttering of the space could be all that it takes to make your living room look elegant. Take a gander: are you doing too much when you could be doing ‘too little’? Take away some things and see if you like the revamped look.
Lay Down the Large Rug
Instead of going to the walls, why not update the floor? A large rug is a great way to add elegance to a room. All you have to do is pick out a nice design that suits your room and you are done!
Add Applied Moldings
Updating the moldings of your living room if needed is an easy way to restore luxury to the room that it was missing. This may cost more than the others, but it is worth it when you view the finished result!
Incorporate a Distinct Heirloom/Antique Piece
From a piano to an antique chair, these can be the pieces that really add that tie-in and finishing touch that a living room needs sometimes. It’s a good reason to go antiquing and you can often find an amazing chair, sofa, lamp, or other piece that you love that adds elegance for not too much on the budget.
