If you’re renting, you know that coming up with apartment decorating ideas can be tricky. Beige walls with carpet the same color, harsh overhead lighting, and odd sized rooms can make creating your ideal living space difficult, to say the least. Especially if you’re on a budget and aren’t willing to put a lot of money into a temporary home. Fortunately, we have some great apartment decorating ideas and tips to help make your home exactly how you want it!
First, hang curtains. You’ll be able to add color and style to a room as soon as you put them up, and - bonus! - they’ll cover up those ugly vinyl blinds hanging in your window.

If you have a funny shaped room or are living in a studio apartment, use a room divider to break up your space. Not only will your room make more sense, a room divider will make your room visually more interesting. Something like this screen or this bookshelf would make an awesome divider.

Put rugs on your floors! Whether you’re covering up stained tile, scratched wood, or dingy carpet, rugs will make your home feel clean, cozy, and bright.

Hang art in your apartment as soon as you possibly can. Nothing will make your apartment look more bare or unlived in than completely bare walls. It doesn’t matter if you are planning on only living in the apartment temporarily - hang that art! It will make all the difference in the world. There’s lots of affordable art available if you look, or you could make your own!
