City-Centre apartments are renowned being on the smaller side, so when it comes to decorating your apartment an important factor to consider is how best to utlitise this space and make it appear more spacious and open. If you are someone living in or recently moving into a city centre apartment and pondering the idea of re-decorating then look no further, let us enlighten you!
First thing is first – create a To-Do list. Prioritise the rooms you wish to tackle first. The rooms you spend the most time in would work best so living room and bedroom may be a good place to begin your focus on. When it comes to these spaces, keep things minimalistic this will promote space saving and avoid the apartment looking too cluttered. Before we discuss general apartment decorating ideas, one way to incorporate premium comfort to your living space would be by buying a Chesterfield sofa. These sofas are premium quality, can be customised to your needs and offer a long-lasting investment piece to any home. A sofa is often the star of a living room, so if by purchasing a premium quality Chesterfield sofa that will stand the test of time and be made to order to your own specific needs, it is an excellent idea to make this the prime investment for your apartment.
When it comes to decorating an apartment imparticular there are tips and tricks to be aware of that can help you make the best out of the space you have. Lighting is key in order to really open up each room, however with space being minimal it is best to use lighting fixtures rather than free-standing lamps to save floor space. There are many different stylish ways to install lighting into your home with options such as pendant lighting, wall sconces, and battery powered LED lighting that look great behind televisions and under cabinets. In a bedroom, two lighting sources works well – an overall light fixture to brighten the room when needed as well as lamps placed on nightstands which offers warm personalised lighting, perfect for reading in bed.
When it comes to decoration, warm neutral colours such as creams and beiges will give the room a light and spacious feel. Keeping things neutral will also allow room for adding creative touches in the form of a statement rug perhaps. In city centre apartments particularly when renting, it’s not always possible to make permanent changes such as hanging wallpaper so adding wall art may be a great alternative – framed photos, gallery style prints and tapestries are all fantastic ways to personalise your space to your own taste and style.
If your apartment has an entryway a great way to add some style to this space could be to add a statement mirror not only will this add character but also open up the area. Adding a narrow console table or bench possibly with some storage included and installing wall hooks for things like coats, jackets and even keys are a great way to save space. There are some excellent and (really rather strong) damage free hook options available to ensure you minimise marks to your walls.
It Is unlikely a city centre apartment will incorporate a dining room, so the kitchen is likely to be the room of choice to serve your meals. A versatile way to add a dining area to your kitchen could be by purchasing a folding table and chairs. Alternatively installing a kitchen island with bar stools is also a clever multifunctional furnishing, as they are not only great for dining but also serve well as food prep and storage spot.
Smart storage and space saving are essential factors to consider when decorating an apartment. Small adaptions such as hanging your televisions on wall brackets and having good storage systems such as ottomans disguised as foot stools and enclosed cabinets are great space saving techniques to ensure your apartment doesn’t appear cluttered and also adds style to the home.
When contemplating bedroom décor, a great way to add some flair is to splurge on a good quality large headboard, this will not only serve as a focal point in the bedroom but can also make the most basic of beds look extremely expensive and trendy! With the bedroom especially, organisation is key. Nothing ruins the look of your relaxing space like clothes scattered everywhere. Optimising wardrobes with interior draws and hanging space offers a simple way to keep organised.
