Redecorating your Gold Seal apartment on a budget is a lot easier than you think.
With a little patience and a good eye, it’s completely possible to spruce up your entire space without spending a fortune. Even if you’re not into DIY projects, there are still numerous creative and economical ways to give your apartment a fresh look.
Start with a list of the accessories you’d like to decorate with and then — before you go running off to the nearest store — read on for nine tips on how to save money on your home decor.
1. Floral perfection
No matter where or how you display them, fresh flowers are an inexpensive (and fragrant) way to add a splash of colour to your apartment all year round. Daisies, daffodils, and tulips are all easy to care for and look great in any room.
2. Colour it up
Whether you choose a dark or light-hued paint, a fresh coat on your walls can effectively change the look of an entire room — even if you paint just one wall. Paint stores typically offer a small selection of colours they didn’t intend to make. These are always discounted and can usually be picked up for $10 a gallon or less.
3. What’s old is gold
From old picture frames to retro table linens, vintage stores have a lot to offer in the decor department, especially if you’re looking to transform a modern apartment into a warm and welcoming space.
4. Go clearance hunting
Those violet-hued curtains, vases, and wall hangings that may scream summer at IKEA now, can still look fantastic in your apartment all year round. No matter what time of year it is, most department stores will have some designer decor on sale at a fraction of the original cost.
5. Plants bring a home to life
Plants are an inexpensive way to liven up your apartment and give your space a cheerful boost. Add some greenery to kitchen counters, windowsills, end tables in your living room, and anywhere else with a surface. You can even hang a few plants from the ceiling.
6. Support your local artists
Reach out to your artist friends for a painting. Not only will you be supporting their creative endeavours but you’ll also end up with a unique piece of art to show off in your apartment.
7. Sweet and sticky
Removable wallpaper is a fun and easy way to make a room feel complete – even if you only cover a single wall in your apartment. The best part is, if you decide to move, you can just peel off the wallpaper and take it with you.
8. Fresh fabrics
Transform the look of your apartment easily with some new throw pillow covers and throw blankets. Even a new duvet cover can drastically change the look of your bedroom.
9. High-value hobbies
Why not showcase the things you love. Use shelves to display your collection of books and vinyl records or frame your favourite recipes and hang them in the kitchen. There are plenty of ways to turn your passions into a personalized home décor item.
