Decorating your home can be very exciting especially when you are going to start from scratch and have the freedom to add whatever it is you want. However, it can really be challenging and frustrating at the same time because you have these sorts of ideas that look good when you think about it but does not actually go well when you did it in real life. What is worse is that decorating can also be very costly and it would be very difficult for you to apply the ideas you want if you are on a tight budget. So here are just a few tips and tricks to create a happy space on a budget.
Add depth to a narrow kitchen. Remove cabinet doors to create a custom look and add personality. Not only will it make your kitchen feel larger, but the space will feel cozy and inviting.
Maximize empty spaces. Every inch counts in a rental, so that awkward foot of space between the top of your kitchen cabinets and the ceiling can be put to good use. You can arrange rows of chunky rectangular baskets on top of the cabinets to store household supplies such as paper towels and coffee filters.
Upgrade light fixtures. Replace builder-grade ceiling lights with something more modern, such as a pendant which can be used in dining areas.
Do not be afraid to paint. As long as it is okay with the landlord, paint your walls in the color scheme you want.
Camouflage the unflattering. You can use adhesive papers to cover the unflattering spaces in your rental. Aside from being inexpensive it is also very easy to apply.
Treat the bathroom like a real room. Since you cannot renovate or change the tile of the bathroom in your rental, you can easily buy other decors to make it look more inviting and a good place to do your personal hygiene activities.
