How can you take a generic apartment and make it suit your personal style? Here are 7 no cost decorating tips.
Bring in your furniture. Get it arranged. Then accessorize. The accessories put your personality on display.
The accessories you choose is one of the best ways to change the look of your generic apartment and infuse it with warmth.
Buy furniture that serves more than one purpose. Storage, any way you can find it, is usually a life saver for apartment dwellers.
Your kitchen will probably be on the small side. So go vertical and eke out every bit of space that you can.
Dining rooms, if you’re lucky enough to even have one in your apartment, are typically on the small side as well. But there are a variety of small tables you can use for a dining space.
Use window treatments to give your apartment a touch of glam. This is where you can go wild with color or pattern.
Maybe, like me, you’re living in a one-bedroom apartment and don’t have a designated space for an office. Look around, though, and you can probably find a spot to create one.
Behind a sofa, for instance.
If you have the misfortune to inherit vertical blinds, you can always take them down and hang pretty curtains instead. Just keep them so you can put them back on when you move.
Also, rugs can define your space.
Your bathroom will probably be small and not have a lot of storage space.
You can get a pretty new shower curtain. And if you have those plain mirrors that are clipped to the wall, you might consider adding trim around it to give it some pizzazz.
Patios & Balconies:
If you’re lucky enough to have a patio or balcony, don’t let that precious real estate go to waste. Decorating the outdoors will enhance your space and give guests a place to go when entertaining.
And if you’re on the second floor or above, here’s a sweet little balcony that makes the most of its space. Cozy and cute with lots of personality.
