How are you settling into your new Lake Highlands apartments? We hope you’re comfortable, and that you’re figuring out how to style your apartment so that it suits your own unique tastes. One of the most important things to do upon moving into a new apartment is figure out how to maximize the available space in your particular floor plan. If you’re having a little trouble with that last part, allow us to help!
In the blog post below, we’ll be talking about some of the most important things you can know when you’re decorating your new apartment. These are tried and true rules that should help you create an apartment that feels open, airy and comfortable. Whether you just moved into your new place or you’ve been here for a bit, we think that the rules on this list can go a long way towards making you feel more comfortable.
Without further ado, let’s dive right into this week’s list of tips! When you’re done reading through the post below, please feel free to share the link to this page with your friends and neighbors at The Lookout — the apartments Lake Highlands residents choose for contemporary comfort and style.
Make friends with multipurpose furniture
The more uses you can get out of each piece of furniture, the less furniture you’ll need to buy. Instead of getting that heavy wooden coffee table that just takes up space, look for coffee tables that open up to reveal storage space, or that can be lifted and converted into a desk. When you’re shopping for a new couch, look for modular couches that can be folded down into beds, or that have built-in end tables and cupholders in the middle. These types of pieces are out there, you just have to be willing to search for them!
Invest in statement pieces
The art that you use to decorate your wall will go a long way towards defining the look and feel of your apartment home. Our advice on this topic is simple; go big. Instead of hanging lots of smaller pieces on the walls, invest in larger statement pieces that will make an impression. Hanging multiple small pieces can make a room feel cluttered and crowded. It might sound a little counterintuitive, but big pieces actually make a room seem more open and spacious. Don’t believe us? Try it out for yourself!
Learn to love layers
No, we’re not talking about pairing a flannel with a hoodie. In your apartment, you can create layers by purchasing throw pillows and blankets that have complimentary colors. Layer these pieces on your couch, your bed and your chairs to create a sense of depth in your apartment. If you want to make your space cozy and comfortable, layering is the first step.
With that, we’ve hit the end of our list of apartment decor ideas. We’d like to take this time to thank those of you that took some time out of your day to read the first month of blogs from The Lookout!
