Abbotsford Rental Tips for Decorating on a Budget

Abbotsford rental tips for decorating on a budget can help you add a little flare to the rental apartment without breaking the rental agreement. At BE Investments, we know that an apartment never truly feels like home until you get to add your own personal style to the space. That is why we have put together 5 tips for decorating your Abbotsford apartment on a budget.

1. Buy Removable Wallpaper

While permanent wallpaper can be intimidating because of how difficult it is to remove, removable wallpaper is a great way to add colour a personality to any room without any of the stress. Removable wallpaper is a great option, especially for apartment rentals, because it is extremely easy to apply and remove.

2. Buy Area Rugs

Area rugs are another great option for apartment rentals because not only do they protect the floor from potential scrapes and scuffs but they also add warmth, colour, and pattern to an otherwise blank space. Consider using large throw rugs to help define living areas or protect the floors in high traffic areas.

3. Paint Old Furniture

If you are tired of your old furniture but cannot afford to buy new items, consider painting out the old items to give them a fresh new look. A new coat of paint on wooden furniture can make a huge difference in the overall look of a piece without costing very much.

4. Add Accessories

One of the best ways to add colour and personality to any apartment rental is to utilize accessories. Try adding punches of colour with throw pillows and small accessories, such as pottery, photo frames, or book covers. Since it is easy to find inexpensive accessories, you can always paint or recover them to make them fit into your new space.

5. Change Light Fixtures

Adding additional lighting to any room is a simple and easy way to brighten up even the darkest, most dreary space. When adding new lighting to a room, try thinking in layers from top to bottom. While overhead lighting and lamps can provide a soft glow, make sure to also consider purchasing floor uplighting or accent lighting to highlight art, bookcases, or cabinets.
