Brilliant Ideas For Decorating Apartments

Thursday, May 21, 2015

If you read my blog often, you’ll know that I’m a decorating addict! I love being able to make changes to my home and give it a new look. It’s fun to be able to mix up colours schemes and shop for new furniture. If you live in an apartment, it can be harder to make changes. Many landlords won't let you make significant changes to the property, but don’t worry, there are ways around it! Here are few ideas I’d try in my home that are readily transferable to apartment living.

● Accessories

Accessories aren't just for clothes. If you hang gorgeous art around your home, it'll feel more homely straight away. Interesting pieces of art can tie a whole room together! You could also display family photos in interesting ways and make personal and exciting wall features.

Accessories will be a favourite for most renters as you can bring as many as you like into your home. Search in secondhand stores for unique items you won’t find in anyone else's home. They’ll make fascinating talking points!

●● Furniture

Anything that you’ve brought into your property can, of course, have a makeover! If you live in a well-decorated apartment like the ones at Ultris at The Madison, you might not need to make furniture updates

If you do, however, there are so many ways to get creative and make your flat unique to you.

For a new look, most furniture will just need a fresh coat of paint. I’d love to try a textured paint on a side table for an exciting effect. You could even use fabric or decoupage to give your tables and chairs an entirely new look!

If you’re shopping for new furniture, make sure you don’t get anything that overpowers your apartment. As lovely as a large table may look, it will look squashed and uninviting if the room is too small.

●●● Rugs and Drapes

Rugs and drapes don’t sound like a significant decorating change, but they can bring a room alive. If you add a rug to your room, it will make it feel more warm and comfortable straight away. If you have any wide open spaces, a rug can help it to feel less empty.

Drapes are fantastic as they can change the look of a room as well. I recommend choosing curtains in bold colours. I'd choose bright or light colours as they can help to make a room feel bigger with minimal effort.

For both items, you can choose unusual fabrics to make your home feel individual. Think outside the box and consider choosing your materials then asking someone to make them. If you’re feeling brave, you could even make drapes yourself!

●●●● Mirrors

Using a large mirror in a small room is a decorating trick that even interior designers will use! I think mirrors look great in hallways or above a fireplace. Because it’s a reflective surface, it’ll help to keep your room light as well as creating the illusion of a large roomillusion of a large room.

Mirrors don’t have to be dull either. You can decorate themdecorate them yourselves or buy interesting mirrors in unusual shapes.

Let me know if you try any of my decorating ideas, I’d love to hear the results.
