Choose your apartment furniture wisely
Furniture for Apartments
Decorating your apartment can be a lot of fun, but it can be challenging as well. More than likely you don't have a lot of space to work with. Consider what furniture you must have versus items you would like to have. It can be a balancing act but with careful planning you can choose pieces that are functional, comfortable and reflect your style.
Start with a plan
Go through each room and think about how you plan to use it. If you are moving into a very small apartment, a studio or small one bedroom, think about using the space as effectively as possible since one room may serve the purpose of two. Write down what you need out of each room or space. Take measurements. You can even make a simple blueprint of the room to help you visualize how things will look.
Make the most out of furniture
Now that you’ve got an idea how you will use rooms and the space in them, start to think about the furniture you need. In some cases, a piece of furniture may also help divide up your space. If the living and dining room blend into each other, a well-placed couch can delineate the two spaces, for example.
Think about the size of the furniture you buy. You don’t want a couch that overpowers a small room or a large table in a small dining area. You want to create a feeling of openness to make a small apartment feel larger. Fewer pieces also give your space a more natural flow.
Dual mode furniture also can help you avoid clutter. Consider wall cubes which can be used for seating and storage.
Be creative with placement
Think out of the box when it comes to placing furniture. Angles create interest and give a room a focal point. Choose accent pieces that are interesting and unique and draw attention to the focal point in your room.
Stay within budget
You don’t have to break the bank furnishing your apartment. You can find items online for sale or at flea markets and garage sales that are in good condition or just require a little bit of repair or refinishing. There also are many home furnishing stores that provide inexpensive yet very attractive and durable furniture.
