Furnish Your Apartment Fast with These Tips
For a lot of people moving into your own space can be daunting. Juggling the desire to furnish your apartment to your liking while trying to budget can be tough, but with these few tips, you’ll be on your way to having an Instagram-worthy space all while keeping your bills paid.
Accept Housewarming Gifts
Accept house warming gifts and don’t be afraid to ask for necessities! Friends and family love giving housewarming gifts, especially if it’s things you will use. At first, the thought of getting a blender as a gift doesn’t sound too exciting, but once you actually have to start buying your own kitchen gadgets you will understand the joy a simple gift like this can cause. Pro tip: Set up registries through places like Amazon or Bed Bath & Beyond so you get exactly what you want for your housewarming party!
Utilize your resources! Hop on Offerup, Craigslist, and Facebook Marketplace to shop for furniture you need. In today’s society people constantly re-furnish their homes and sell/get rid of everything even if it still has the tags on it. Sometimes you can even score designer furniture for a fraction of the price! All you need to do is hunt for pieces constantly, the good stuff goes quick!
Discount Stores are Your Best Friends
Once you discover the magic that discount stores hold you will be making trips to places like Homegoods, and Marshals for fun. These stores have everything from everyday household items to items you can’t live without for cheap. So head on down and score yourself a Ralph Lauren sheet set for less than $20, you’ll thank us later!
Don’t be afraid to unleash your inner Martha Stuart, get crafty! Make, refurbish, and recreate pieces for your new place, it adds a personal touch to any space. Sometimes that coffee table you picked up off the curb only needs a coat of paint and you have yourself an entirely new piece of furniture.
One Word: IKEA
If you have ever been to an Ikea you know what it is like to have everything you could possibly need at your fingertips. You can furnish an entire room and then some with a trip to Ikea. If you know exactly what you’re looking for you can bypass the trip and have everything shipped to your door by shopping online!
