Apartment Decorating Tips
Moving into a new apartment can be exciting, but apartment decorating isn’t always easy. For one thing, when you don’t own an apartment you may not be able to change certain aspects of it. For example, many apartments prohibit painting the walls.
But even if your hands are tied, you can do some basic things that will help you to make your apartment a showpiece. Here are a few simple tips for decorating your small space. When it comes to the walls, you have several options.
Utilize large pieces of art work to transform boring white walls. You can also purchase or make wall hangings using large pieces of fabric that will help to cover large areas of the wall and become a focal point for the room.
You can also purchase removable wall art. There are all kinds of styles and patterns and these can be used to make your mark on a room. However, when you move or are ready for a change, they can be easily removed without harming the paint underneath.
If you’re concerned about putting holes in the walls, you can use removable adhesive hooks. These come in a variety of sizes and strengths to hold up artwork and other decorative items. When you’re done using them, you can simply remove them without harming the walls.
Window dressings are another way you can bring color and interest to a room that won’t permanently change or damage anything in the apartment. Choose colors for your window dressings that are either neutral or coordinate with other accent colors in the room.
When choosing fabrics, you may not have the eye to decide what looks coordinated. In that case, fabric stores often sell fabrics that are specifically designed to coordinate and complement one another. A quick online search will give you loads of options.
Because apartments are often small, make sure to utilize the space well. Decorative shelving with storage baskets give a coordinated look and are functional. They’ll give you more places to store small items without making your apartment look cluttered or junky.
Use room dividers to break up larger spaces in your apartment without making permanent changes. Many decorating retailers sell room screens and dividers that will help you do this economically.
While living in a small, rented space poses challenges to decorating, it’s possible to have a beautiful space that you love to call home. Apartment decorating is one way to make any plain space personal.
Not only can decorating on a budget be fun, but if creatively undertaken, it can also be done with flair and style.
The first thing you should remember when undertaking creative DIY home decor or renovations projects, is that there are no rules except those that you set for yourself.
So as long as you are willing to invest your time and energy, then you should be able to make a room go from plain to perfect in no time at all.
