Whether you’re dealing with outdated furniture or stale-looking decor, Rent-A-Center’s got some awesome ideas to help you level up your space. Bring your living room back to life with these budget-friendly tips today!


Spruce up your living room with just a few simple touches! Small decor items are an easy and inexpensive way to refresh your space. Try implementing these ideas during your next living room makeover:

  • Throw pillows: Accent cushions add a fresh pop of color — you can even change these with the seasons.
  • Cozy blankets: Throws provide interesting texture, like a chunky knit or boho fringe. Drape one or two over a chair or sofa for an added touch of elegance and comfort.
  • Decorative baskets: Hold extra pillows, blankets, magazines, or other small items. Why not combine style with function?
  • Rugs: You can find a design to match any style, from bohemian and elegant to modern and chic.


Is it finally time you upgrade that second-hand sofa you got from your parents? You don’t need to break the bank — Rent-A-Center has plenty of high-quality pieces at reasonable prices with flexible payment plans. Maximize your savings with living room bundles that include sectionals, accent tables, lamps, and decorative cushions. Start with these living room ideas:

  • Comfy sofas or sectionals: As the focal point of any living room, a new sofa can instantly change the feel of your space, so be sure to choose something you love. If you need more seating, a sectional is great for adding extra lounging room.
  • Stylish chairs for additional seating: Try a camel-colored leather chair for a timeless accent that will both complement and accentuate your living room’s decor.
  • Captivating coffee and end tables: You may not think of a coffee table as a statement piece, but it can be! Table sets with whitewash finishes are perfect for a sweet farmhouse haven, while marble and metal will enhance that chic, contemporary look.

Media & Electronics

Having the latest technology is a must when it comes to entertaining friends and family. The right electronics can make your tech-lover dreams (like the ultimate gaming setup) and family room ideas (like a home theater) a reality. Start with these:

  • A new TV: Is your old box set in desperate need of an upgrade? Don’t settle for a small screen or fuzzy picture. Your favorite shows and sports teams will be even better on a 75-inch, high-resolution screen.
  • A home theater system: An upgraded sound system can take your living room to the next level. Just add popcorn, drinks, and candy for the perfect movie night experience.
  • Gaming consoles: Don’t limit your fun — you can play any game you want when you have access to different consoles. From PlayStation to Xbox, Rent-A-Center’s payment plans make it easy to own any gaming device you want.

Modernizing your living room doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. With Rent-A-Center’s living room furniture bundles and electronic deals, you can easily get the stuff you want and pay it off over time.
