Decorating an apartment is not easy (or cheap). For a lot of people, an apartment is a temporary living situation until you can move into a house, so it's hard to justify spending a ton of time and money making it perfect.

When I was decorating my apartment I kept going back and forth about whether or not the item I was buying was something I could use in a future home. I hate wasting money on things I can only use for a short period of time, so I tried to be as cost-efficient as possible!

Lucky for you, I found a ton of cute apartment decor on a budget that you can use in your apartment, no matter what your style is! I'll break it down by each room of the apartment to make your life easier, but seriously don't get overwhelmed (decorating is supposed to be fun)! Here's exactly how you can get the high-end look you want, for less! 

This post is all about the best apartment decor on a budget.
