There are so many ways to change up your apartment on a budget. Panoramic Properties has several tips and tricks that you can use when it’s time to redecorate.

Throw Pillows

Change things up in your apartment with some new throw pillows. This is one of the simplest ways to give your place a makeover. Choose between a variety of colours, shapes and sizes. If you already have a few throw pillows, you can always add a couple more into the mix. This will instantly update your existing look. The other option is to just change the slip covers. You can find a great selection at Wayfair, Ikea and Structube.

Throw Blankets

Another way to change up the look of your apartment, without much commitment, is to add a few throw blankets. Drape them over your couch, ottomans and beds. Look for soft and cozy fabrics like faux fur and wool, as well as colours that suit your colour scheme. If you feel like your apartment is missing something, a throw blanket is usually a good way to fill that void. 

Twinkle Lights

Drape twinkle lights in your bedroom, on the balcony or use them to brighten up your vanity. This is a great and affordable way to make your place feel warm and dreamy. If you add them to your bedroom, the space will instantly feel more welcoming and relaxing. The best part is that they are not expensive. You can find twinkle lights almost anywhere, including Walmart and Amazon.


Alter the look in your dining room with a new tablecloth. Depending on what look you’re going for, pick appropriate colours and fabrics. If you love something bold, check out Kitchen Stuff Plus for tablecloths in bright colours or Urban Outfitters for more subtle and bohemian options. A cool table runner is another great option!

Make Art!

If you’re the creative type, you can save some money and make your own art. You can do anything from painting your own picture, printing your favourite photograph and framing it, making a photo collage or creating your own gallery wall. The options are endless!
