At our apartments in Roanoke, VA spring has finally sprung. As you look around your apartment home, is it time to lighten it up and make it more airy? If you are longing to redecorate on a budget, here are some ideas:
Paint! For under $100 you can dramatically change any room’s appearance with paint. Pick a vibrant color from the room’s patterned upholstery or rug. Putting that color on the walls can have a dramatic effect.
Decorate with plants. This is one of the easiest ways to bring life and color to your home. If you have never cared for plants before, be sure you get plants that are easy to care for. You want to use the plants to add cheer to your home, and dead plants or those that always drop dead leaves won’t do the trick.
Add texture to your space! 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. Dining room chairs or bar stools can be recovered for a whole new look. Adding shears or light curtains and removing blinds is another way to bring light and air to a room.
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 HoneyWood Apartments to make some colorful changes in your apartment homes.
