9 Apartment Decorating Tips
2
  • Photos and Art
  • The simplest way to add some character to your
    apartment is to add personable art and photos.
    (Dont be that person who hangs college dorm
    room posters.) For a unique touch start at local
    flea markets and thrift stores to find frames. If
    you want a cohesive look you can spray paint the
    frames, or you can leave them as-is for eclectic
    appeal. Hang non traditional items on your wall
    like old antiques. Hercules hooks are good for
    hanging heavier items.

Main thing
  • Main thing is Buying a good luxury apartment in a
    good area whatever the country whatever the city.
  • Example Astoria luxury apartments
  • City Colombo Sri Lanka

  • Curtains (Window Treatments for the
    designer-types)
  • The current window coverings in your apartment
    are likely less than appealing replace them with
    some fabric or ready-made curtains or woven
    shades. Changing out curtain rods can also help
    increase window appeal. HGTV has a list of 18
    inexpensive window treatments.

  • Repeated Themes
  • Tying together a room or apartment can be a
    challenge, especially when you are trying to join
    together your own style with that of the living
    space. Having a theme that repeats throughout
    the space can help lend it some structure. You
    can start with a color, or a shape, even a
    collection you may have cultured over the years.
  • Paint Colors
  • Not every landlord will let you paint but if you
    clear the colors first and stick with something
    neutral you normally wont have a problem. If
    your apartment is small in other words, if you
    live in NYC  choose light colors as much as
    possible. Dark colors make a room feel cramped.
    If you truly hate the colors and your landlord is
    being a stickler you can always offer to paint it
    back before you move out. For color palette
    ideas, use ColourLovers.
  • Mirrors and Light Reflecting Surfaces
  • Mirrors, glass mosaics, or other light-reflecting
    objects will bounce more light around your room,
    making your space feel bigger. Dont go crazy
    with this, however no one wants to live in a fun
    house.

Plants
  • A plant adds a nice splash of color and is a
    welcome sight in the concrete world we live in.
    Depending on where it will be located, look for
    low or high-light plants, and avoid plants that
    shed. Remember to add a dish below the plant in
    case you overwater. Water damage is a big no-no
    for your landlord. If you cant keep a plant
    alive, fake plants have come a long ways, but
    they can be expensive.

Want big impact?Buy a luxury apartment in
colombo.Not only the the colombo.if there is
enough facilities and good environment that must
be a right place for you.

Cover Eyesores
If there are any ugly parts to your new rental
apartment do your best to hide or camouflage.
Adhesive paper can be a lifesaver here it sticks
on and comes right off when youre ready to move.
You can use the paper to cover dented or
scratched cupboards or old refrigerators to give
your rental apartment a whole new look. Above
all, get creative. Dont settle for the same old
apartment make it your own.

Lets review some concepts
  • Storage-Friendly vs Light Furniture
  • Renters without much space love storage ottomans,
    or bed platforms with drawers. We need to create
    as much space for our things as possible, but
    lets not get carried away. If all your furniture
    is heavy, without gaps for light, your apartment
    will also feel heavy.  Find that balance between
    storage-friendly furniture, and smaller, lighter
    items.
  • Bookshelves
  • In smaller spaces bookshelves can be used to
    divide up spaces such as bedroom areas from
    living spaces. Open bookcases that let light
    through can help to keep your apartment looking
    bright and airy, while still offering added
    privacy. Avoid cluttering your bookshelves and
    instead feature interesting pieces on the shelves.
