DECORATING IDEAS FOR APARTMENT LIVING ROOMS

DECORATING IDEAS FOR APARTMENT LIVING ROOMS

Posted: Friday July 23, 2021

Decorating a plain apartment is exciting. Whether you live in a small town and want to create a big feel in your apartment or you live in a big city and want to create a calming, relaxing atmosphere, the main idea is to make your apartment a home you can’t wait to come back to. 

Unfortunately, apartment living often comes with limitations in terms of décor, but fear not! Below, we’ve put together a few decorating tips for your apartment living room that are sure to make your rental a home. 

THE FURNITURE

Your living room isn’t a living room without furniture. When purchasing furniture for your apartment living room, consider the size of the space and what function you want your couch, chairs, and tables to provide. 

Look for pieces that not only look good but also provide a purpose you can use. Think about how you’ll get the furniture up to your apartment if it’s on an upper floor. This fact alone may dictate what kind of furniture you buy. 

TEXTILES

Since you probably can’t paint the walls to reflect your style, you should take advantage of things like accent pillows, area rugs, and other accent pieces to showcase your personality. If you choose neutral-colored furniture, you can have fun with colorful and patterned accent pieces throughout the space. 

Don’t forget to give some thought to the type of décor you’ll hang on the walls, too. Do you like artful pieces from well-known artists or are you an artist yourself with pieces you’ve created to adorn the walls? Either way, the wall décor is another way to bring out your personality in an otherwise bland apartment. 

LET IN THE LIGHT

Natural light is a great tool for making a small living room look bigger. The more light that streams through the windows, the warmer and more inviting your living room will be. 

If your apartment comes with heavy drapes on the windows, consider replacing them with something lighter or sheerer to allow as much natural light as possible to flood the space during the day. Just remember to replace the old drapes before moving out. 

THINK BIG

If your apartment living room is small, you can make it appear larger by placing a few larger furniture pieces in it. Leave some space between the pieces to create the illusion of spaciousness in the room. Avoid placing lots of smaller pieces in the space as it can make it feel cluttered and cramped. 

Also, incorporate a couple of tall shelving units in your tiny living room as these draw the eye up, which can also give the illusion of spaciousness in a small area. 

If you live in an apartment, there’s no reason it can’t feel like a home. With the right décor, your apartment living room can feel warm and inviting, just like a home should.
