Even if you loved the way your apartment looked when you first moved in, its appearance may have become dated over time or you simply might be ready to change things up a bit. While you may be eager to change the look of your living space, you may lack the time or money necessary to completely overhaul your home. Fortunately, apartment decorating, or redecorating in your case, doesn’t have to consume a lot of your time or money.
Affordable Apartment Decorating Ideas
Whether you want to breathe new life into your living room, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen or all of the above, here are some affordable apartment decorating ideas you can use to transform the appearance of your apartment:
- Window Treatments: Window treatments do more than prevent people from looking into your private space. You can also use them to frame a room. If you want to make it seem as if the ceiling in your living room is higher than it really is, raise your curtains so that they’re higher than your windows.
If your landlord doesn’t want you to hang curtains, you still have several window treatments to choose from. One popular choice is graphic blinds, which will draw attention to your windows.
- Add Color: While you may think you have to paint to add color to a space, that’s simply not the case. You can brighten your living room simply by adding some vibrant pillows to your couch. You can add even more color by draping a vivid throw blanket over the back of your loveseat or using the blanket to cover its cushions.
If you want to brighten your bathroom instead of your living room, consider getting a colorful rug and equally vibrant towels. Changing the color of the lightbulb or light shade you use in your bathroom is also an effective way to make your bathing area more colorful.
- Refrigerator Fix: A refrigerator takes up considerable space in many kitchens. If that’s case in your home, why not make your fridge a pleasure to look at? All you have to do to make your refrigerator an appealing focal point in your kitchen is decorate it with some temporary wallpaper tiles.
