As you have already put in a huge sum of money into buying your house, you might be procrastinating to spend on furnishings for your new apartment? In this blog, we will provide you some useful tips to decorate your flat on a budget.
Your flat in Patna is almost ready, and you are all set to move into your new home. But, you haven’t furnished it yet, and you don’t have enough finances to do it up.
It might seem impossible to furnish a home when your budget is almost exhausted, but it is still possible to get things on track on a small budget. It’s definitely a good idea to start planning ahead of time about what are the essentials that you would need in your house.
Here are some excellent tips that you can put to use when you are starting with decorating your apartment on a budget: –
- Reuse & Recycle
Before you begin buying new furniture pieces, it is always good to use what you already have. If you have a few mismatched furniture pieces, you can paint them all using a similar stain to make them match a bit better. Old chairs, tables and stools can be repainted to give them a new life, and can be used as living room furniture.
- Get the furniture essentials
When you are broke, it is good to stick to the essentials. Like a few chairs, bean bags or a couch for the living room; a mattress for the bedroom; and a table with some stools can be used in the dining room. So basically, you don’t need to spend a lot on the essentials, and you can even pay a visit to second-hand furniture market to get your hands on some really cool stuff at budget-friendly prices!
- DIY pieces
Use stuff that you already have to create some furniture pieces and storage without spending a penny. The cartons that are used to carry your stuff to your new house can be used as storage and a table. Take the big boxes, fill them up with stuff that you need to store, and cover them up with some colorful paper or a table cover. These boxes can be used as a table or as a stool beside your bed.
- Utilize storage pieces
Storage shelves come in a range of sizes and shapes. Choose a storage shelf that can stand both upright or lie flat, so that it can be used both as storage and as a bench for sitting. Use these storage shelves in your living area, and position such shelves horizontally to use it like a bench.
- Green décor
If you don’t have the budget for décor, try incorporating some green plants. Get seeds, grow plants and transfer them into bigger and colorful pots. If you don’t have big plants, use small plants and hang them at different heights to create an eco-friendly décor.
All that furnishing a new place requires is a good eye for using existing pieces like they were new, and getting your hands on some cheap furniture bargains!
