You are going to be for the first time in your life on your own. Whenever you need to do it, you can do anything you want. And you can decorate the area to match your tastes, not mom and dad is. But before you begin shopping, allow me to give you some basic decorating ideas which will allow you to save some money. Do not purchase a single Thing to your apartment until you measure. Measure windows obviously you will have to know width and the length of each window. And if you are planning on using valances for a little color, determine the length of the valance you want, also. Measure floors All Rugs always look larger in the shop. Area rugs and runners come in a number of sizes and throw rugs are not large enough. Measure purchase, if you are considering putting a rug down someplace. Measure wall space whether you are thinking about hanging pictures on the wall or mirrors measure. Again, pictures and wall décor always seem bigger when they are on display at the shop because a designer ordered them that way. Gauge the room which overstuffed couch and recliner might look nice from the show room but try and put them into your living space. Diagram your usable floor area and mark windows and doors so that you will know how much you space truly have for furniture.
Look at your design Sure you may have space in your bedroom for a king-size bed, Kitchen appliances you need a microwave and a toaster oven and a coffee pot. And a countertop mixer along with a blender and a toaster. And do not forget about something and a canister set to hold your premier appartement utensils. Quantify your countertop and then check your storage space, too. Choosing colors When You look in the magazines, even an all white flat has splashes of color. Choose three, your primary color and two accent colors. Any more than that and you are going to give yourself and your customers a hassle, any less and your apartment will simply look dull and boring.
Choosing patterns it is perfectly fine to mix stripes, plaids and floral all as long as you use patterns and colors. Be careful you toss in lots of colors to split up, and do not overdo it though and accent your layouts. Warmth Some Decorators feel this to add warmth to a space you require a combination of four items wood, glass, plants and lighting. And among the most popular decorating suggestions is to use candles to add a warm glow anywhere in your property. A lamp at the corner, a plant at the entryway, and a candle in the bathroom the decision is yours and whatever you can do to create an apartment feel inviting and warm is a step in the right direction.
