Owning an apartment can be a dream come true for many people. A little piece of real estate that is all their own, can even fill a void they never knew they had. Sometimes, however, the interior can become a little dull and a little change in the décor can be just what is required to bring it back to life and help it reach its full potential. Below are a few ways that you can spruce up your apartment and bring it into the 21st century without breaking the budget.
Style your Entryway
The entryway is the first impression of the apartment, it sets the tone for the rest of the space. So why not make it look inviting? Think about adding some sculptural hooks for coats and bags, a nice decorative chair and mirror, a decorative shoe rack with an umbrella stand and an accent rug to make the entryway have a lasting first impression.
Swap out the Lighting
Updating the lighting fixtures can be one of the quickest and cheapest ways to modernize an apartment. Try swapping out those old, outdated overhead lights with some nice, fashionable downlights to create a sleek modern look that are key features in newly built apartment buildings.
Add a fresh coat of Paint
Over the years, there have been ‘in’ colours when it comes to painting the interior of your apartment. The issue with painting your walls with an original colour is that there is a very good chance that this colour will look extremely outdated in a few years’ time. Walking into an apartment with a purple feature wall that was popular in the 90s is not ideal when it’s 2021. Look at colours that will date well and allow you to interchange the interiors without having to repaint each time.
Organise your Space
Present your prized possessions in a more attractive and eye-catching way (think ‘The Home Edit’ on Netflix). For example, instead of having those tired old bookshelves housing all your photos and flowers, install some floating shelves. Instead of having a run of mill tv cabinet, install a wall mount to show off your 62-inch flatscreen. Make your books a feature, colour code them or lay them flat as a mount for a candle or small statue.
Update the rugs and cushions
If you are in the mood to splurge a little on the interior décor, look at acquiring some new floor rugs and couch cushions. Having items like this updated can create a completely new feel for your apartment.
Add Greenery to your apartment
Adding pots and plants to your apartment is a fantastic way to improve a space instantly. A plant creates a sense of calm while a vase full of fragrant flowers brings with it a smell and pop of colour that can make any room inviting.
Looking to sell? A décor update can bring on a quick sale
If you are looking to sell your apartment, freshening the look of your apartment can be the difference between selling in a week or a month or even longer. When people are interested in buying an apartment, generally they want to do as little renovations as possible, so ensuring the apartment is looking modern and fresh can definitely help with slapping that sold sticker on the internet.
