A three-bedroom apartment can feel like an open space full of potential. Yet when you get start decorating it, you may feel overwhelmed by those options. You may also wonder what you can do to personalize the space, without putting your security deposit on the line. With a little bit of design know-how, you can create a beautiful and welcoming space out of your three-bedroom apartment, all without jeopardizing your security deposit. Here are some tips that will help.
1. Give Each Bedroom a Purpose
A three-bedroom apartment gives you the freedom to choose different purposes for your bedroom. While you need to designate one as your actual bedroom, you may also want to designate one as a “man cave” or a “craft room.” Perhaps one will need to serve as a home office, and one may need to be a guest room. The answer to this will determine your decoration scheme, so decide how you will use each room before decorating.
2. Create an Entry Station
Every apartment needs an entry station “landing pad.” This is a place where you will drop your stuff when you enter. A basket or hooks for keys, a place to store mail before sorting it, and a hook for your jacket are all good options to have. By setting aside a dedicated and attractive space for this purpose, you will reduce clutter in other areas of your apartment.
3. Decorate with Wallpaper
Yes, wallpaper is acceptable in an apartment, but only if you choose removable options. Removable wallpaper allows you to put up a style you love, then change it when your tastes change or it’s time to move out of your home. This can give your apartment an upscale look, without too much cost or risk. Add it to just one wall for a colorful accent, to the ceiling for something unique, or in an entire room to match your tastes.
4. Find a Focal Point in Each Room
In each room of your apartment, choose a focal point. In some rooms, it will be a piece of furniture. In others, it will be a window with a lovely view. You may even choose a piece of art. No matter what you choose, build the room’s décor around that focal point.
5. Keep the Colors Uniform
While a three-bedroom apartment does give you the freedom to get a little more creative with your color choices, keeping them uniform throughout the apartment will make it feel as large as possible while also creating a pulled-together look. This tip works especially well in the common areas of your apartment. Keep the flow uniform with a common color scheme in these main rooms.
Decorating your apartment is fun and exciting, giving you the chance to personalize your space. Use these tips, and start creating your dream space.
