How to Make an Apartment Look Luxurious on a Budget

It’s easy to fall prey to a cookie-cutter décor scheme. It’s simple to put together, and it doesn’t take any creative energy. However, if you don’t take a few chances and dedicate time and energy to your apartment décor, you’ll be mired in the ordinary, surrounded by space-filling furniture that you don’t truly love.

We want you to be thrilled every time you step foot in your new apartment, so we’ve put together a few tips to decorate luxuriously without breaking the bank.

  1. Keep it Simple

Minimalism is the friend of designers everywhere—and it’s also the friend of your budget. Not only is it more expensive to stuff a bookshelf, work desk, dining room table, chairs, and bar all in your dining room, but it looks cramped. Open space creates an air of sophistication, especially combined with a fresh coat of paint, preferably a crisp, neutral hue that allows you to decorate with an array of different looks for different seasons. Combine that with black interior doors for a unique, sleek style for your luxurious apartment.

  1. Keep it Personal

Nothing makes a statement like unique memorabilia, and they make great conversation pieces. For instance, a travel station with items from an overseas trip will provide hours of conversation and can distract from less desirable items or furniture in your apartment. A vintage model train carrying airplane tickets and other souvenirs can tell an amazing story.

  1. Pile on the Pillows

Pillows are an inexpensive way to instantly enhance any large chair, loveseat, or sofa. Go ahead and splurge a little on the 22-inch pillows, or buy pillow covers and fill them with 24-inch inserts. Large pillows bring comfort and style to any modern apartment.

  1. Hardware Goes a Long Way

Upgrading your hardware from the standard, cookie-cutter doorknobs, drawer pulls, and cabinet handles can make a huge difference at a small cost. You can find modern pieces at a hardware store for a low cost, or you can browse flea markets or thrift shops for unique, vintage additions that can enhance any upscale apartment.
