Well, that is almost impossible, however, there are ways to add value to your apartment before moving in. There are a lot of different tips and tricks that you may or may not like, but you cannot know until you try.

So, with no further ado, let’s see how to do this in the best way possible, that doesn’t cost too much.

Add value to your apartment before moving in, in a few simple steps

Ok, so before we start to count down the ways to add value to your apartment before moving in, let’s mention the most important part of this process. That is the budget. The bigger the budget, the more ways there are to spruce up the place. Of course, if you do have a big budget that doesn’t mean that you should go above and beyond, by buying extremely expensive stuff, when for way less money you can buy a similar thing, if not the same. The same goes for when you are selling the apartment and you want to stage your home in order to sell it better. You won’t be buying anything expensive, you re moving away, right? But here we are talking about how to make your new apartment better before moving in, so let’s talk about that.

How to add value to your apartment before moving in, when on a budget?

It is easy to know how to make your apartment better when money is there. What takes some serious skill is to make an apartment looking its best when you re on a budget. So, what can you do? Firstly, there are a million ways to make the apartment beautiful even when you have no money at all. Also, when you are moving to a new apartment it is completely normal that you are financially not in a great place. That is why we will find ways to make your apartment perfect with little to none money.


So, yes, there are a number of ways to make your apartment a perfect home, without any money. DIY projects are the best way to go. If you go online and simply type how to make a shelf, or how to make your look bigger, a million DIY ways will come up. For example, if you want to make your apartment look bigger, just make sure to have a lot of mirrors. Also, having the right curtains and carpet makes the difference when it comes to that warm feeling that every home should have. We know what you are thinking, carpets and curtains are very expensive, this is not written in stone. There are carpets and curtains that nobody is using in your family home. Or your old ones, from the last apartment. Just one wash and everything will look and smell perfectly in your new home.


Paint doesn’t cost much and it can do wonders for your apartment. It is all about the choice of colors. You can and you should use more than one. For example, studies say that kitchen should have white walls or some dark color because if you have for example orange or red walls in the kitchen you will always be hungry. So, if you don’t want that try to avoid this type of color.

Refresh your walls

Of course, this rule does not apply to other walls in your new apartment. You can do as you think it is the best. But always keep in mind that a fresh coat of paint will do wonders for your new nest. This also goes if you are planning to rent this apartment to someone. It will be easier to find a reliable tenant if you have an apartment ready to be rented. It won’t cost you a lot and it will mean so much when it comes to the beauty of the apartment.

Forget the budget!

Let’s forget the budget for a second. What if you have enough money to make this apartment just the way you want it. What would you do? Let us help you. Sit down and take a look around your new apartment, anything comes to your mind? Let’s see some great new things that you can buy to make this apartment perfect:

  • new shelves
  • paint
  • floor
  • furniture

These are the things that you can change. However, there are still some great DIY ways that will keep you entertained and busy. Even if you have a great budget for the apartment. For example, you can create patio furniture for your terrace out of pallets. This can be so fun. And at the end of the day, you will be so proud of what you have achieved with only some pallets, and cushions. So, no matter how big or small your budget is there are a lot of ways to make your apartment a little haven.
