Christmas Decor for a Small Apartment

Living in a small apartment doesn't offer many options for elaborate holiday decor. With a little ingenuity, however, I've created a lovely holiday-themed apartment. A miniature lighted Christmas tree carefully placed on my side table greets visitors as they enter my home. Making good use of my front room window, I have adorned it with decor, using tinsel and garland, as well as miniature stockings hung with suction cups. As a festive alternative, you might try hanging shiny ornaments on the window in much the same way. If your apartment is designed with a staircase, decorate the banister. Use garland, tinsel, holly or even holiday greeting cards. Finally, if your apartment is furnished with a fireplace, decorate the mantel. I've placed a two-foot tall animated and musical Santa on my mantel. I hope my blog gives you some fun decorating ideas for your small home.

3 Ways To Avoid Overspending When Buying A Living Room Set

by Luke Patterson

Purchasing a living room set rather than buying each piece of furniture individually can allow you to create a cohesive style in your home, as well as avoiding a situation where you're waiting a long time to find pieces that will work together. From a large sofa to a coffee table and bookshelves, buying a matching furniture set can allow you to furnish your living room in one cohesive style that you'll be happy with.

If you're concerned about overspending on your new furniture, consider the following ways that you can help make sure that the cost is more reasonable for you.

Determine the Kind of Furniture You Want

As you look for furniture to purchase for your living room, it's important to be realistic about the size of your living room and what pieces will be the best fit. A large sectional sofa can be ideal for big families, while some people might prefer lots of bookshelves to accommodate their library.

Looking at the different furniture that comes with a matching set is important since you don't want to be in a situation where you pay a lot of money for furniture that doesn't accommodate your needs.

Decide on a Comfortable Budget in Advance

Before getting serious about any furniture sets you find, it's important to decide on a budget before you step foot in the store. Knowing how much you can afford for a full set can help a lot with eliminating some options right away and help you avoid a situation where you're wasting time looking at furniture that you can't afford.

A comfortable budget can also help you determine whether the payment plan will be a good option if the furniture offers this for their tenants.

Look for Discounts on Some Furniture Sets

Buying a furniture set doesn't need to mean that you have to spend at the high end of your budget. Instead of being overwhelmed by all the furniture available, look for furniture sets that have been listed for clearance so that you're able to feel better about buying furniture that's a comfortable match.

When you're interested in purchasing a living room set, it's important that you know what to look for and what you can buy furniture that's going to suit your home and be affordable. With the above tips for preventing overspending, you can have a much easier time deciding on a matching furniture set for your living room. Visit a furniture store to see what furniture is available.
