What are the best living room decorating ideas for apartments for cheap budget or low budget? To make a drastic change in the living room requires you to change some parts of the interior that will definitely come with expenses as well. I suggest that you consider changing or replacing the paint colors of the living room first, the paint has potential to give a magical impact on the overall interior. If you love nature, birds and oceans, you can have a mural artist to design a wall mural for the apartment living room. Applying a new mural would definitely add more to the already aesthetics of the living room.
