Freshen Up your Apartment with New Décor for the New Year

Hamden Apartments at SeramonteWhether your apartment is open and spacious or small and cozy, it can be difficult to figure out how to make the most of your space. Fortunately, there are some easy decorating tips that can make any room feel warm and inviting while showcasing your unique style.

  • Use mirrors to reflect light and create space. Mirrors always serve to open up a room. Hanging a mirror opposite a window is especially useful for reflecting light, while placing one behind a chest or table creates the illusion of more space.
  • Display your storage. Floating shelves create storage without adding bulkiness and can be hung near the ceiling to draw the eye upward. Alternately, tall, slender bookshelves that fit snugly against the wall utilize vertical storage and free up floor space.

  • Open up your windows. Make windows look taller by installing curtain rods closer to the ceiling, or make them look wider by installing the rods a few inches past the sides of the panes.
  • Minimalist style, big statement. Opt for one large statement piece rather than several smaller pieces, such as an L-shaped couch rather than two loveseats and a chair. Similarly, decorating with several small accents creates clutter, so opt instead for fewer, large accent pieces.
  • Create floor space. Choose simple, scaled-down furniture instead of bulky pieces that make a room seem small and cramped. Couches with exposed legs often have this effect by opening up floor space, which makes the room seem larger.
  • Save space with hidden storage. Furniture that doubles as storage allows you to save both money and space. Good examples are ottomans with removable tops, coffee tables with shelves attached below, and desks with built-in cubbies along the sides.
  • Add personality with color. Sometimes, freshening up your space is as simple as purchasing new throw pillows, rugs and lamps. Add pops of your favorite color to not only liven up your apartment, but show off your design personality.
