Whether its a brand new flat or a resale flat that you have just moved in, decorating the flat can transform your living space! While there is a vast array of home decors in Singapore, shopping in the city can feel hopeless when you are trying to work under a tight budget.
However, not all beautiful home interiors require you to break the bank before you can achieve the look. Here are 7 ideas that can help to create an Instagram-worthy home and still stick to your budget!
1. Multi-functional Furniture
Create a statement with multi-purpose furniture. For a price of one, you get a furniture that has 2 functions! For example, the Café Suitcase Coffee Table which adds a contemporary touch to the living room. However, it actually has a large hidden compartment for you to store magazines and other knick-knacks to keep the room clutter-free!
2. Decorate With Pillows
Pillows are one of the easiest ways to add colours and style to your living room and bedrooms! There are tons of various pillow covers – from faux fur and velvets ones for a luxurious look or contemporary ones for a modern home. When you decide to change the style of your interior, simply change the covers of the pillows and you’re good to go!

It’s perfect if you do not have a lot of time or lack artistic flair as it’s simple and easy to achieve! The feature wall can add a pop of colour and make a statement in the space!
4. An assortment of Chairs
