The living room is the place where we usually spend most of our time when at home, so making it as comfy and stylish as possible should be a priority. Unfortunately, we can easily get bored with the way things are (it’s in human’s nature), and quite often, homeowners look for new ways to revamp this area. The good news is that there are many interesting and affordable ways in which you can jazz up the living room.

Add a Dash of Greenery
Houseplants have the power to brighten up a room and make it more inviting. And with today’s range of appealing and stylish modern indoor planters, houseplants can instantly spruce up your living room. Although the opinion about indoor plants improving the air quality is divided, one thing is certain, there’s no doubt that they can instantly add life to a room. And if you are one of those who love plants but always forget to water them, then you have the chance to redeem yourself by investing in the latest invention – a self-watering modern planter.
The secret of this modern planter is the integrated self-watering system that allows the plant to receive the needed amount of water in a precise time. Your only job would be to check the water reservoir from time to time and fill it up with water till the next time (which won’t be any time soon). Depending on the type and size of the reservoir, usually, they can hold up water for up to 4 weeks. Except for being able to hold up water for that long, these planters are also popular for their ability to retain the nutrients from the soil – they don’t get drained away as it is with traditional planters.
These planters can come in a range of materials and styles out of which the simplest and most commonly used version are the ones made of injection-moulded HDPE. Pick one that is BPA-free, UV and corrosion-resistant so you can be sure that is completely safe to grow even herbs and veggies (in case you decide to grow organic food).

Available in many designs, sizes, shapes and colours, cushions can instantly change the look of your living room. You just need to find the ones that can complement the current room’s look and style. You can always experiment with colours and patterns, just make sure you mix and match them right.
