We’ve all been there: that moment you gaze around your apartment and feel an instant yearning to get rid of everything and start over fresh, with new and chicer home decor and furniture pieces. However, while you may be tempted to go all out and decided on making massive changes to your home, redecorating your entire living space isn’t exactly as easy as refreshing your closet for a new season. And, if you also happen to be on a budget, it’s really neither feasible nor practical option.
Fortunately, there are plenty of wallet-friendly ways to revamp your space on a budget and without resorting to a complete renovation. Adding a piece of subtle accent furniture, like a new side table or chair is one easy way to instantly give your place a subtle refresh. Of course, you can also add a few new statement pillows for a mini makeover—a little bit really does go a long way, especially if you’re living in a smaller space. Ahead, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite super-chic accent chairs to give your home a budget-friendly update.
