Are you tight on budget? Do you wish to decorate your apartment nicely? Well, if yes, please read further.Renting an apartment and then decorating it on a budget, is challenging financially as well as creatively. One has to plan the allocation of funds wisely and spend for the right purpose. Here are certain useful ideas for decorating the apartment on budget –

Paint – Painting has always been one of the most effective ways to decorate an apartment. The raw material as well as the labor is not very expensive. In addition, it does not consume much of time also. You may also handle the painting project all by yourself and make further savings. Keep in mind that paint is one of the most versatile decorating ideas and the outcome depends on your creativity. Play with different colors and try to mix different hues from different families. For large bedrooms, stick to conservative colors with contrast color for accents.

Stay Simple – Instead of using your limited money to purchase several inexpensive items of décor, select few good quality pieces that can work together. By this way, clutter will be avoided, and pieces will stand out and attract attention. For instance, a vintage movie poster along with an antique typewriter can be used to create an old world ambience. You may club this with dull color hues.

Combine display and storage – Visual appeal can easily be created in a room without purchasing expensive items. For this, you need to make provision of storage in display. For instance, instead of storing pans and pots in the cabinet, hang them on a nice hook. Decorative pots can be used to store cutlery and knives in the kitchen and pens and pencils on the study table.

Art work – Hanging art work on the wall is the easiest way to breathe in life to a dull room. The art work can be anything. You may hang paintings, posters, photographs and more. In the study room, you may frame a world map or just a statics graph and hang it. A collage of old childhood pictures along with recent pictures looks good in the living room as well in the bedroom. An old license plate can also be used to create a bright wall hanging as the focal point of a room. Basically, leave your creativity loose and select items that can be used as an artwork.{apartment listed here}.
