Styles to Steal for Your New Apartment
Even if you’re just renting an apartment, it doesn’t necessarily mean you can‘t make it your “own.” With all the rental rules and landlord laws, you may think your decorating options are limited. With a touch of creativity, your rented apartment will complement your lifestyle perfectly.
Follow these tips to make you feel at home in your new apartment:
Know exactly the extent of what you can do
It won’t hurt to ask your landlord what you can or can’t do with the space. As long as you return the apartment to how it originally looks once you move out, they would probably allow you to hang paintings and wall decorations.
Add a touch of playfulness to your gallery display
Floating shelves are ideal if you have a collection of mementos and other decorations. You can also scatter the shelves for a more unique look.
Try mixing instead of matching
A few pieces that are uniform are fine, but don’t go overboard. Mismatching also has a trick to it. For example, furniture with different design inspirations can work together if they’re the same height.
Unify everything through color
If you aren’t allowed to paint your walls, paint your furniture instead. Painting your bed frame or night stand can have as much impact as a newly painted wall. If painting isn’t your forte, you can just buy rugs, curtains, or other accessories with common hue.
Beautifying your bedroom or livening up your living room can enhance your mood while you’re at home. With a few simple arrangements, you can turn your space into a healing haven.
