Do you ever feel like your rental lacks an area where you and your guests can relax, watch TV, or even play video games? You can designate a particular space as an entertainment room!
If you don’t have a basement or spare room that you’ll be furnishing, you might choose to redecorate your living room so that it functions as a comfortable entertainment space.
A comfortable couch, coffee table, ottomans, and end tables are all essential purchases. It’s easy to overspend on furniture when you’re designing this kind of space.
StampinFool states (3) that on average, you can expect to spend approximately $32,150 furnishing a 300 square foot living room. And with the average person already spending $1964 per month on rent for a two-bedroom apartment according to Apartment Guide (4), you probably don’t want to spend that much money as you redesign your rental!
But you can easily save by using a few simple, frugal tricks:
- Shop online to compare prices on furniture and look for ecommerce stores that are offering deals.
- Ask your loved ones if they have any furniture or decor they’re looking to give away.
- Check out thrift stores! You’ll be amazed at what you can find at significant discounts.
For an entertainment space, you’ll definitely want to invest in high-quality technology. You might want to check out electronics retailers so that you can ask their sales representatives about which televisions, speakers, or gaming systems they would recommend.
So there you go, 4 fun & easy ways to redecorate your rental!
