Inexpensive First Apartment Furniture Roundup

I did a post the other day all about the inexpensive furniture I bought for my apartment and I asked you guys on Instagram if you wanted to see a roundup of more options and you said yes! So I went back to all the sites I looked at for my furniture and rounded up some of the other cute pieces I was eyeing! To see what I ended up purchasing make sure to go back to my original post.

This is my second apartment I am moving into, however, the first one was furnished so it wasn’t as difficult (or expensive) to move in. I have had so much fun designing my new place and I can’t wait to show you all the finished room! When I first started looking I couldn’t believe how expensive some furniture was, but I ended up finding some amazing deals! I hope this post helps anyone out there that is moving soon!

Don’t forget to read my last post to learn How I Plan my Room decor & my FIVE Apartment Design Tips on a BUDGET! I also list my favorite stores to shop at!


Beds, Bed Frames, & Headboards!

Okay the great thing about beds is it doesn’t really matter what the frame looks like because you can throw some cute bedding on it and no one will know! I just have a plain white bed frame right now, I like the look of no headboard (just lots of pillows), but my roommate and I talked about DIYing one for me which would be fun! Or there are some really cute inexpensive headboard options I can buy later!

Most of these are between $100 – $200!




To me, rugs are always the focal point of the room. It really ties the whole look together! Whenever I design a room I usually start with picking out a rug. I have almost always purchased my rugs from Amazon because they are so inexpensive, but I have also purchased smaller rugs from Overstock and all of theirs are so cute! Check out my favorites below!

Most of these are between $100 – $250 (but depend on size)



Dressers, TV Stands & Nightstands

I grouped all of these together because I felt like they were similar! You can use a dresser as a TV stand, or throw some baskets on a tv stand shelf and use it as a dresser! Keep in mind that you can switch out knobs to make them look nicer!

Starting at $40+



Desks & Shelves

I actually haven’t purchased a desk yet for my apartment, but I just found some really cute ones online that I will link here! I also wanted to include some shelves because that is a great way to add some storage to a small space!




Last, but not least, I wanted to link some cute decor! This is my favorite part of shopping for a new space! I love looking on Etsy and in stores like Homegoods!



I hope you all enjoyed this small little roundup! Can’t wait to share my room tour soon!

    I agree a rug can pull a whole room together in a snap! Good luck decorating/furnishing everything–that can be stressful! ~Katelyn/
