We hope you’re enjoying your first couple months in your new community of apartments in the Medical Center! We love helping new residents get situated, which is why this week’s blog is all about decorating your apartment. Whether you’re a first-time apartment-dweller or you’ve been living in apartments for years, we think you’ll find some useful tips in the blog post below.
Decorating and furnishing an apartment is a lot different than decorating a house for a number of reasons. First, it’s unlikely that you’ll live in this apartment for the rest of your life. That means you need to buy furniture that will work in other settings. You also want to buy furniture that’s easy to move, since that’s probably something you’ll be doing at some point. Storage is an issue in apartments, but it’s an issue that can be managed easily if you’re smart about it. In fact, all the issues that arise when you’re decorating your apartment can be solved with a few simple tips and tricks. We’ll explain everything below!
Check out the list of decorating tips, and please be sure to share the link to this post with your family and friends and your community of apartments near Medical Center!
Tip #1 — Don’t overspend on art
You’d be surprised by the number of awesome art pieces you can find at your local goodwill or the thrift shop down the road. Vintage is in, and vintage often looks way better than modern. If you feel like you need some more wall art in your apartment, shop at the thrift stores before you order something off Etsy. You never know what your next home will look like, so it’s really not worth it to spend a bunch of money on a unique piece of art. Practice frugal living, folks!
Tip #2 — Invest in versatile furniture
Like we said earlier, you’re probably going to move at least a couple more times before you settle down for good. Keep that in mind when you’re buying furniture for your apartment. If you’re buying a sectional couch, make sure it’s detachable so you can make it left or right-handed depending on the kind of apartment you live in. The more modular furniture you can buy, the better.
Tip #3 — Furnish your place one piece at a time
If you moved into Stella at the Medical Center without much furniture, it’s tempting to go to the nearest IKEA and buy all the furniture you need. That’s one way to furnish your place, but it’s also one way to go broke. Furniture doesn’t come cheap, which is why we recommend buying one nice piece at a time. In the meantime, you can furnish the rest of your place with thrift store furniture. Once you have some more money, you’ll be able to easily replace that thrift store furniture with nicer pieces.
