Is it possible to change the look of a room for free?

After some time of living in a house, certain areas may lose their appeal in our eyes.

Sometimes, we may feel like throwing everything away and starting over from scratch…

Has that happened to you as well; am I right?

If so, as I imagine, today’s article is for you because I’ll give you four tips to change the look of a room for free!

Yes, you heard it right, for free!

But is it truly possible?

Let’s find out!


Who among us doesn’t have objects bought or gifted over the years that are now useless or no longer serve a purpose?

Or piles of newspapers and magazines that we’re unlikely to ever look at again, just accumulating somewhere?

It’s time to clean up, remove, and make space!

Get rid of anything that doesn’t hold any value for you, anything you don’t need!

It may seem unbelievable, but this simple act alone will already transform the space, and it’s completely FREE!


Try to imagine different ways of positioning the same furniture in the room.

Start visualizing new layouts and then actually try moving some pieces of furniture.

What’s the worst that could happen?

Even if things go wrong, you can always put everything back the way it was before and get a little workout in the process!

At least you’ll have a clear understanding that the original arrangement is the one you really prefer!

The reality is that many times there are other options for arranging the same elements, which may even become more functional!

A different and more functional layout will make you love the room even more, making you feel even more comfortable.

Leave room for imagination, envision, and try it out, if you want to first on paper, or you can go ahead and physically move the furniture.

That, too, is a cost-free intervention; the investment is only your time and physical strength!


Take all the objects you have in that room and “take them away.”

If you love specific compositions, maybe take photos of them first, just in case, to be able to recreate them if needed.

But, as with furniture, even the composition that seems most beautiful to you could (as you can see, I’m using the conditional) become even more stunning!

Even a different arrangement of various objects like books, vases, photographs, and so on will undoubtedly give a different look to the space!

And once again, the investment is your time, not money!


It may seem trivial, but try bringing, for example, vases from your bedroom to the living room, or vice versa, swap paintings, and so on!

After all, it’s not like things, once placed, have to stay in that place forever!

The room will transform!

Of course, this is feasible if the house has a common thread in terms of colors and style!

As I’ve often mentioned, it’s essential to have a color palette and use it throughout the house.

It doesn’t have to be the same everywhere.

One room can have a predominant color from the palette, while another room can have a different color.

However, the palette should be consistent.

The same goes for styles.

Once you’ve chosen a style or a mix of styles, you should maintain it throughout the house.

That will allow you to freely move furniture and objects without them EVER being out of place.

I hope you find these simple tips helpful in changing the look of a room, if you put them into practice let me see the before and after in the comments!
