As you will probably know, living expenses in Dallas are pretty high and although you want to add a personal touch to your apartments, you might not have the money to spend a fortune doing that. If this is the case, you will be happy to know that there are plenty of solutions to redecorate your apartment without going bankrupt.
First of all, if there is some piece of furniture that you don’t like, just ask the landlord to take it away. As all the landlords, yours will have a lot of Dallas apartments and he or she has probably a huge storage box where she or he puts any furniture that can’t go with the style of one of his or hers many apartments. You should simply call him or her and explain that you don’t like that piece of furniture and that you are sure the apartment will look nicer and more spacious without it. He or she will probably accept it and maybe your landlord will put that hideous piece of furniture in someone else’s apartment but that isn’t your concern.
Once you got rid of every piece of furniture you don’t like, it is time to get some ideas on how to redecorate your apartment. Living in Dallas will get you acquainted with many artists an interior designer so you should definitely ask one of them to help you out redecorating your apartment for rent. They probably know what is best for your apartment and if you are lucky enough they will also have a lot of ideas about DIY that won’t cost you a penny but will definitely make your apartment for rent nicer and more elegant. If you know an artist that you really like, you can always ask him or her to do a little something for your apartment as a welcome gift, just a little painting or a little sculpture if you prefer it. They will for sure be happy to help you out.
As you probably already experienced, cost of living in Dallas is enormous and you won’t probably have a lot of money to buy things for your apartment. If this is the case, you should try to make the most of the things you already have. For example, you can ask your relatives if they have some pieces of furniture they don’t like anymore. They may not be super fancy but if you get a little bit creative, you can always find a way to make your aunt’s arm chair into a modern and super elegant arm chair.
