Apartment Decorating - Online!

POSTED BY DECORIST EDITORIAL TEAM
JULY 20, 2016

Approximately one-third of the 314 million people in the United States live in rented housing.  That means that tens of millions of Americans live in apartments of different sizes.  Overall, apartment dwellers tend to be younger than homeowners across the country. Why are we giving you all of these fun facts?  Because millions of people need to decorate their apartments.  Online apartment decorating may be daunting to some people, but to many who live in these homes it should be anything but stressful.  That’s especially true if you work with Decorist.  Below are a few ideas to keep in mind as you start your apartment decorating project.

 

1. Keep It Simple

Apartments tend to look better in general when people create the illusion of space.  Elaborate, intricate and excessive décor can create the opposite effect and make an apartment seem somewhat cluttered.  Choose tasteful items but do so in a way that does not overcrowd a room or rooms. 

 

2. Shelving Is Your Friend

People who live in apartments tend to need more storage space.  If you make the proper use of shelving, you can combine utility and style.  Shelving units that are in the right place will add a nice visual element to almost any room, even the kitchen. 

 

3. See Your Space In Zones

Most apartments out there will have bedrooms, bathrooms, a kitchen and a main room.  The main room is where most of the daily activity will happen.  If that main room is big enough, consider adding a ‘divider’ piece such as a couch or table that can create a living room and perhaps a dining room or a study.  If that’s possible, you’ll double the use of that space.

 

4. Don’t Forget the Bathroom

When people take advantage of our online apartment decorating service, many of them tend to overlook adding to a room where everyone spends a lot of time – the bathroom.  Adding a few features and a piece of furniture or two can turn even a small bathroom into something that’s a pleasure to use.

 

5. Dual-Purpose Furniture

When you live in an apartment, you need to make use of furniture in as many ways as possible.  Perhaps a pull-out couch would be a good idea for you, or a Murphy bed. Some people like the idea of turning a day bed into a seating piece during the day or vice versa.
