3 Easy Ways to Add Style to Your Apartment

Posted on: Dec 21, 2011


When you move into a new apartment, one of the first things you may want to do is make it reflect your personality.  Decorating can be a lot of fun and doesn’t have to be a lot of work.  Here are 3 easy ways to add a little pizzazz to your new home:

1. Curtains
Curtains make a room feel warm and cozy and are a great way to bring in color.   Light colored, sheer curtains can make a room seem bigger and brighter.  If you are a light sleeper, you may want to put up dark, heavy curtains in your bedroom to keep out the sunlight in the morning.

2. Table Settings
Buy a set of dishes that reflect your personality.  They could be modern and chic or bright and fun.  Depending on the size of your table, set two or four sets out with each set sitting on a place mat.  If you want, add a centerpiece for flair.

3. Rugs
Rugs are an excellent way to add color and personality.  Fun doormats are welcoming and can also help reduce the dirt that may be tracked into your home.
