Budget-Friendly Ideas For Soft Furnishings In Your Living Room



Soft furnishings, essentially mean interior design elements that are made of fabrics.

These mainly include curtains, cushion covers, upholstery and bed linen. They are the easiest and most budget-friendly way to upgrade your room in a jiffy. Regardless of the season or occasion, you can flip the vibe of the room with a small budget and some of our tips.


Use old sarees, bedsheets or dupattas and sew them up to make lovely cushion covers. If you like quirky decor, use old printed t-shirts for the cushion covers. Additionally, place cushions with contrast colours next to each other to create a fun and vibrant environment.

Cushion detailing

Beauty lies in the details, so feel free to add minute details to your regular cushion covers. You can take a solid colour or printed cushion cover and stitch threaded tassels or feather details onto the corners or add a string of pom pom tassels all along the edges. These will add a fun element to regular looking cushions. You can also upgrade the look with a piping detail of contrasting colour. You can also use different colour cushions and use the same colour for piping to form a set. 

Tie and dye

It is a great way to decorate plain textiles, cushion covers and throws. Use pure cotton or cotton blend fabrics as they work the best in retaining colours. Simply gather and bind your fabric using a thread or a thin cord; the result will differ depending on what you use for binding. Place the fabric in a vat dye, rinse and dry. You can use this technique to decorate cushion covers and throws.


This will come handy during the festive season when you wish to decorate your home. You can stitch embellishments like stones, pearls applique or colorful buttons etc on the cushions or curtains for that celebratory shine!

Sofa makeover

A simple yet effective way to improve the appearance of your home is to fit new sofa slipcovers over old sofas. Stretch slipcovers are designed to fit easily and are quite affordable, so you can transform the look and feel of your whole room with no hassles. You can also get customized slipcovers to instantly disguise the upholstery on your sofas and chairs, giving them a fresh new look.
