Set Your Apartment Apart from Others With These Simple Tips

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, February 01, 2011
Living in an apartment means that decorating can be a challenge. Since you don't own the property, there are only so many things you can do. If you want to decorate your spaces in a way that showcases your interests and personality then read on! Whether your living quarters are small or spacious, there are many things you can do to make your space your own. Here are some helpful hints brought to you by Auston Woods in Charolotte, NC.

Paint a Wall

Paint one wall
of your living room a shade that complements or contrasts with colors in your upholstery and accents. It may be a soft blue, light teal or muted peach. Painting a single wall breaks up the monotony, and adds depth to the room. The walls aren't the only thing you can paint! Most tables can be painted as well, as can a lamp's shade and even its base. Just make sure you aren't painting some off-the-wall color like fuschia or something that cant be easily painted over. Be sure if you are going to paint the walls you contact our admimistration office first to ensure your color is acceptable.

Avoid Chunky Furniture

Unless your apartment is large, avoid using bulky or heavy furniture. Chunky furnishings often take up more floor space than necessary, and give the room a smaller feeling. Stick with furniture that is sleek and simple, and not over-stuffed or bulky looking. A sofa, recliner, coffee table and matching end tables are often the only furniture you really need in your living room. Have some over-sized throw pillows available for seating on the floor should you have several guests over.

Decorate Windows


An easy way to jazz up your apartment and add color is to use curtains with lots of color, or even a roll-up shade that contains hues that match your decor. Be creative; you can even make your own swags with a set of satin sheets!

Add Texture

The secret to pulling it all together is fabrics that use different textures. Consider nubby textures that are vibrantly colored for throw pillows, especially if your sofa is made of a sleek material; a tapestry for one wall adds more texture, and is a great focal point for the room. Accent rugs, silky table runners and beaded lamp shades all add various textures to the room.
