Decorating without a lot of spare cash can feel limiting, but it’s really an opportunity in disguise! For those living in Sandy Springs apartments, this is a time to learn new skills, create something new, and solve puzzles you never knew you were capable of solving. Here are three tips to get you on your way!
Showcase Your Antiques
You man not have a lot of antiques crowding the space in your apartment, however, it really doesn’t take a lot of spare cash to pick up a few collectible items and group them together for an eye-catching effect. A few old-style pitchers or fancy soap dishes can do wonders for your shelf space. This can be done anywhere in your apartment but may look best in the kitchen or bathroom. A bookcase in your living room may also make a haven for your displays.
Watch the Estate Sales
Yard sales and garage sales are great places to pick up furniture and decorations that you can afford. The advantage of going to an estate sale, though, is that you get a better idea of how decorations can be used in your space. You don’t have to copy the look item for item, but you can use the style as a base for inspiration if you choose to buy something there.
Increase the Functionality
Storing clothes in drawers under the bed is a great way to open up your closet space for additional uses. The open space of the closet’s sliding doors can be used for a mini-office to pay bills, finish up work, or just play around for an hour or two online. Cover the wall behind the closet with pegboard and start feeling that much more organized. This decorating tactic can also help you discover other unutilized areas around the home just waiting to be turned into something beautiful.
