4 Cheap and Easy Decorating Tricks for Renters

Aug 25, 2016

With IKEA at your doorstep and a big, beautiful London apartment just waiting to be transformed into your personal retreat, it’s time to start decorating. Timbercreek Communities features cheap and easy tricks to add character and charm to your space.

DIY Ottoman

As all IKEA hackers know, the place to start is the as-is section, where you can find great deals on gently-used furniture. With a cheap and easy decorating trip or two, these pieces can be masterfully transformed. For example, replace the legs and add your fabric of choice to turn an ordinary ottoman into the fantastic footrest your living space craves, no sewing required.

NightstandIKEA Hack Nightstand

After picking the perfect—yet completely average and affordable—nightstand from IKEA, a five-minute drive from Canterbury Towers Apartments (760 & 770 Wonderland Road South) or The Boardwalk Apartments (725, 735 & 745 Wonderland Road South), it’s time to get busy. Upgrade your buy into an elegant bedside table. For the price of spray paint and contact paper, this project can be completed in one of four different ways, depending on your style.

DIY Lantern Terrarium

The lovely thing about this DIY Lantern Terrarium is that it looks great in any room in your London Apartment, making it an extra smart purchase for your dollar. Besides the basic lantern from IKEA, you will need a handful of arts and crafts supplies. For whatever you do not have on hand, check out the nearest Michael’s (3080 Wonderland Road South), a five-minute drive from Westmount Suites (750 Wonderland Road South).

Storage and Decor in One

You will never regret decor that doubles as storage, especially when it costs so little. A cart at IKEA can look pretty basic, but with a touch of creative lettering and a few utensil containers mounted with zip-ties, it becomes a very functional yet very chic decorative piece.

Have fun decorating your apartment with today’s tricks for renters from Timbercreek Communities. For more information about London apartments, visit our website today.
