Five Tips to Decorate Your Apartment on a Budget

Living in a rented space doesn’t have to mean white walls and no fun. There are plenty of ways to add a touch of pop and personal flair to your apartment. Your surroundings are an important part of how you’re feeling. The way your home looks impacts how you feel. Of course, there are some limitations to what you can add to a rented space. The key to designing a space that makes you happy is different for everyone. Here are some great ideas to decorate your Elk Grove apartment at Marquette at Willow Crossing that are fairly affordable.


You don’t need a large budget to include artwork in your decor. If you have original paintings, that’s fantastic. Even if that’s not in your budget, you can pick up prints that give your room some pop.

Bright Throw Pillows

Colors have a dramatic effect on your mood. Throw pillows are budget-friendly and you can choose different colors and themes and change them when you want something fresh. 

Plants and Flowers

If you have a green thumb, indoor plants are a wonderful way to decorate your apartment. Even if you’re not much of a plant person, adding fresh flowers brightens the room (and they smell good, too).


Bookshelves are, of course, a great way to showcase your library. You can also use them to organize things into pretty baskets, showcase pictures, and house all your fun knick-knacks.

Personal Elements

Add photos and things that are personal to your life and taste. After all, good decor isn’t just about aesthetics. It’s a way to showcase your own style.

Even small changes can make a big difference in your mood. Decorating doesn’t need to be budget shattering. The best enhancements are the things that make you smile.
