Apartment Decorating Dos and Donts

If you’ve moved into an apartment, one of your first steps should be to make the space your own—but how are you going to decorate your new home? There are many easy mistakes to make when decorating an apartment, as well as many opportunities to let your creativity run wild.

Do: Consider Your Space

First of all, don’t make your apartment too crowded! A common mistake is bringing too much stuff into a smaller space. You’ll need room to breathe and probably aren’t wanting to make the place look cluttered.

Don’t: Waste Money

If you’re looking for ways to decorate on the cheap, then you can search of used items in good condition that can still give your rooms a classy feel. If you’re feeling really crafty, make your own decorations. There are thousands of do-it-yourself ideas on the internet.

Do: Follow Rules

Finally, be careful how you decorate. When you own a home, you don’t have to worry about things like poking holes in the walls or repainting a room, but in an apartment, thumbtacks and paint jobs might be off-limits. Find less permanent ways to express your creativity like posters, artwork, rugs, plants, cool furniture, or interesting curtains.
