At our apartments in Columbia, SC the fall season is about to start. As you look around your apartment home, do you long to redecorate? Read on for low-cost suggestions to brighten your space.
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.
Warm Up Your Space! Now is the time to think about what the floors will feel like on chilly mornings. 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 Fabrics! Textiles can really brighten up a room. Plain sofas can be livened up with patterned pillows. New place mats are a fabulous 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.
Fill that Empty 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.
Replace the Towels! Take a look at your bathroom. Can it use a fresh look? New towels and a bath mat in a bathroom can completely change its look.
Here’s hoping that these tips will inspire residents at Abberly Village to make some colorful changes in your apartment homes.
