Clever & Cheap Ways To Make Your Apartment Look Nice

Sep 27, 2016

Your home isn’t simply a place to sleep and store your things. Your home should reflect who you are and what you love. Timbercreek Communities understands that you want your home to look nice, but you may not want to spend a lot of money (or have a lot of time) to make your home, feel like home. To help, here a few clever and cheap ways to make your apartment look nice.

Well Organized Mudroom

You don’t actually need an entire room to devote to muddy shoes and hanging coats.  A wall by the doorway will do just fine. A well organized mudroom or wall is the perfect location in your home for muddy boots, hooks for your keys and coats, and a shelf for papers or mail that you need to organize. When the entrance way to your Timbercreek home is neat and organized, it sets the right tone for the whole space.

Temporary Rustic Deck Tiles

An easy way to refresh and add a touch of warmth and refinement to your balcony is with these temporary rustic deck tiles. These tiles are pre-stained and removable (so you can clean the floor underneath). They can even be cut to fit around corners or poles. These tiles are meant for outdoor use only and will help you transform the balcony at your Timbercreek home into a rustic deck for just $3.44 per square foot!

Hexagon Mirror Wall

You can arrange these two-toned hexagon wall mirrors any way you like. You can cluster them together to create a mirror wall, or get creative with your own design. They come in packages of 10 (5 pieces in 2 tones). The double sided tape to hang them is included.

Wooden Blanket Ladder

You can re-purpose an old ladder into a functional, organized, display and storage rack for your blankets (or towels). It looks great in the living room, by the bed for those cold winter nights when you need an extra blanket, or in the bathroom as a towel rack. You may want to stain the ladder (in a well ventilated area) to a shade that best suits your space.

Gallery Wall

A great way to personalize your apartment is to hang things on the walls. You don’t have to spend a lot of money on artwork to create and curate your own gallery wall. All you need are few inexpensive frames (or create your own frames using your choice of washi tape). What you choose to put in the frames is up to you! It can be photos, images from magazines, a colourful abstract painting you make yourself -- even old greeting cards or wrapping paper remnants can become a work of art!

We hope you give some of these cheap tips and tricks a try. If you’re willing to put in just a small amount of time and money, you can make your apartment look nice and feel like home. For more information on Timbercreek Communities for rent across Canada, please visit our website.
