5 Apartment-Friendly, Quick Interior Design Tips

July 16, 2019

Whether you’ve just moved into your new apartment or you’re looking for ways to spice up the appearance of your current apartment, these quick interior design tips will do the trick and won’t violate your complex’s rules! You don’t have to knock down walls or rip up carpet to get a beautiful living space! 

Switch out lampshades or pillows

One simple and inexpensive interior design tip is to simply change your lampshades or pillows. Choose an up-to-date style or whatever lampshade or pillow draws your attention.

Use simple but bold details

Changing the look and feel of your apartment does not have to take a long time or require a large check. In fact, the smallest changes can make a great difference. 

Instead of trying to pull off one of those “renter-friendly” projects you see online, simply add a vase of stunning flowers, vibrant artwork or even visually appealing drink coasters to your room. These details may not take up the entire room but they will certainly enhance it.

Make your apartment welcoming and comfortable

Your interior design changes should be made with the goal of improving your apartment’s appearance. At the same time, remember that you have to be comfortable with the appearance and it should also appear welcoming to guests. If you’re uncomfortable with a change, a color or a piece of furniture, it shouldn’t be in your apartment!

Freshen up your bathroom

Your bathrooms are some of the most high traffic areas in your apartment. You could add new artwork, but there are easier fixes, too. Swapping out your shower curtain and hooks for a new style could make all the difference. Whether you change colors or styles, the new curtain will transform the appearance of your bathroom.

Change up your rugs

An easy interior design fix is to move around your rugs from room to room, or purchase a new rug. Rugs can add interesting color and texture to rooms, and there is a wide range of colors and styles. If you aren’t in love with the color of your apartment floors, rugs can go a long way to making you fall in love with your space! 

Find a New Apartment

If you find your apartment still just isn’t doing it for you after you make these changes, maybe it’s time to look elsewhere! Check out our properties to find your next apartment home.
