Awesome Decorating Tips for Your First Apartment

Rental Tidbits - Posted On 05/31/2017 11:12 AM, Last Updated 05/31/2017 11:24 AM

Moving into your first apartment gives an awesome feeling!!! Finally you will be having your own space (no roommates) where you can have things just as you like. At the same time, it can be an overwhelming experience too. Where to start? What to look for? Where to look for? These are some common questions everyone has when they want to decorate their first apartment. Here are few handy ways to make your first apartment feel like a home.

Decorating Tips for Your First Apartment

Think about a budget and allocate proper time and energy

You will probably start with a limited budget, especially when you have invested most of the funds in acquiring the property. That is totally ok! Always be honest about how much you really want to spend on the items that you need as well as spend your energy on allocating appropriate amount to each of the items.

Stick to the basics

If you are starting from scratch one thing you need to know is that it is different for everyone! If you are moving in with your family or a friend or a relative, all will have different needs. Spend your money on the things that you really need once you move in. Initially do not waste your money on the things that you can do on your own or manage to do without for few weeks or months.

Get a paint job!

This is applicable if the house is already not painted. Painting the walls is an easy and cheap way to immediately change the fell of your space and make it look livelier.

Pay attention to the flooring

You will not believe how much adding a rug or two can actually shape your rooms. You can easily find a great area rug for cheap and the best part is that you can change them if you get bored with the style or pattern. An area rug definitely pulls any room together.

Do not ignore the windows

Nobody likes to see a naked window. Always ensure that your home looks presentable to people who live in it (including yourself). Make sure that it remains private at the same time (beware of people looking in from the windows!). Choose the curtains which will match with the rooms furniture and the stuff in it.

Choose the right furniture (& not too much of it)

Yes, you heard that right! Choosing the right kind and type of furniture is very important. Do not stuff the rooms with too much of it. As this is your first home, you will want to put some extra bucks and buy costly furniture that looks elegant and fashionable. However, it is advisable to start with the essentials and then invest in bigger items.

Plug in a few lights!

You need to lighten up those areas which look dull. Nobody would like to see a dim corner. Put up a nice and beautiful lamp and see the magic. It will brighten up the room and your room.

Time to show your artistic side

No, we are not telling you to build art work. Looking at the same big blank wall is no fun. How about putting a piece of art and turn up the rooms mood? Selecting a few pieces of art from a nearby art gallery can make a huge difference in the look and feel of your new home without breaking your budget.

Lets go green

Have you thought about putting up plants? No? Think about it! Plants are cheap, easy to put up and will make those empty corners look dynamic. If you are not that informed about what kind of plants to buy, talk to a local gardener or a friend who has some idea about what will look good in your new house.

Take what you love!

Despite of whatever we have mentioned so far, there might be one piece that you absolutely love. If you really can not stop thinking about it, go for it! Do not think about spending a little extra, it is your first home after all.

Lets party!

The first thing which you need to do before inviting people for a party would be to clean your home in and out. Adding to that, inviting the people you love to be with will definitely make your first apartment feel like home!
