Inexpensive Apartment Decorating Ideas

Joseph Coupal - Friday, March 30, 2012

At our apartments in West Columbia, SC spring is here! The warmer weather has made many of us want to bring light and airiness into our apartments.  Do you want to do some spring renewal redecorating in your apartment home? Here are some suggestions that will not break the bank.

Fresh paint-  For under $100 you can dramatically change any room’s appearance with paint and a few basic supplies. Pulling a vibrant color from a room’s patterned upholstery or rug and putting it on the walls can have a dramatic effect.

Throw rugs -  Roll up or throw down a rug as the seasons change. A soft area rug could really pull all the colors together in a room, and reduce echoes from hardwoods and tile.  

Add throw pillows and place mats -  Fabric can really brighten up a room.  Plain sofas can be livened up with patterned pillows. New place mats are a great way to change the presentation of a meal. Pair a contrasting color or a pattern with plain plates. Dining room chairs or bar stools can be recovered for a whole new look.

Add a photos collage to the wall -  Use family photos and mismatched frames to fill a blank wall space in a family room or hallway. Lay them out on the floor and make a grid. Play with the design until it feels balanced and looks good. If you have trouble following the pattern, make paper bag cut-outs of the same pictures and tape them to the wall for the placement of the frames.

Sheers and Curtains – inexpensive sheers and sheer curtains can really change the feel of your room. Take down the drapes or blinds and put up shears for spring instead. See how the light changes the room.

New Hand Towels - New towels and a bath mat in can give your bathroom a whole new look.

Have fun making some colorful changes in your apartment homes at Abberly Village.
