    Can’t Go Wrong With Ikea Furniture

    When it comes to stylish furniture and décor at affordable prices, you can always count on Ikea. You can find everything you need there -- from bathroom and kitchen supplies to bed frames and wall décor. It’s a great one-stop shop and you don’t have to spend a fortune. You can get a new couch for $429 or a bed frame for $129. Also, if you’re stuck and not sure how you want to decorate your place, you can also get a lot of inspiration just by walking through Ikea.

    Repurpose Furniture

    Whether you’re on a super tight budget or just feeling creative, repurposing hand-me-down furniture is always a good idea. A simple but great project to try is painting an old piece of furniture. By choosing a new colour to match your existing décor you can transform the piece. You'll also give that piece of furniture a second life. For example, you can take an old dresser and make it into a beautiful kitchen island with lots of space for plates and utensils, or make the dresser into a chic, new-and-improved entertainment centre where you can put your TV and speakers.

    Get Creative And Organized 

    Save yourself the stress of living in a mess by organizing your apartment and getting rid of stuff you don’t use or need. For wardrobe storage, get drawer dividers to organize your stuff. Add a hook board to your door where you can hang your favourite jackets and hats. Don’t forget to use the space under your bed, or consider purchasing a bed frame with drawers

    Temporary Wallpaper and Flooring

    Instead of expensive hardwood flooring, look into temporary solutions like vinyl flooring.

    You can get also get really creative with wallpaper, which is affordable and looks great! It’s a really simple way to give any room in your apartment a mini-makeover without having to spend too much money.
