You just celebrated your mid-20-something birthday, so it's official, you're a grown up now. College feels like it was a billion years ago, but somehow, your furniture hasn't graduated since. It's come time to throw out that cliché movie poster, but with the bills that came with this whole adult thing, a major re-design is a bit daunting.

Homee, the app that helps you furnish and decorate your space on any budget, has some easy, wallet-friendly tips to help you "adult" your space.

Lighten Up:

Nothing says adult like the warm glow of a room filled with candles. Don't let designer candle prices scare you off - buy plain, unscented candles in bulk and get creative with mismatched glasses and jars that have separated from their set. Pair the project with some LED string lights for a low maintenance upgrade that will make you forget all about that awful dorm room lighting.

Frame of Mind:

The dorm days are over...a.k.a. your bed should not be touching the floor. Bed frames are an inexpensive way to up your bed game, literally. They are also a great way to free up storage space for those posters you refuse to part with.

Green Means Go:

Bring your space to life with a large floor plant that is welcoming, and makes you look responsible. Caring for a plant can also be therapeutic and a calming addition to your daily routine.

Magic Carpet Ride:

Chances are your rental didn't come with the hardwood flooring of your dreams. Tie a simple room together with a large area rug, or a series of smaller ones. Look out for unique bold patterns to make the room feel even more spacious and lively.
