Give your Apartment a New Look for Spring

Modern interior with sofa 3d renderSometimes you just need a fresh start. Your old furniture and decor can start to feel too comfortable, and it is always good to shake things up, especially in smaller spaces like an apartment. With a few easy changes, you can bring new life into an old apartment, for very little money. Whether you just moved into a new place or you want your old place to feel a little bit more grown up, or homier, or more fashionable, with a few simple changes, you can make it happen.


Paint is a great way to completely change the look of your apartment, but it can be tough to get your landlord’s approval if you are a renter. If you do, go crazy. You can pick any color that expresses the tone of your life in that moment. Go light and airy, or bold and dramatic. One way to really mix up your space is to choose an accent wall. You can keep it solid, or mix it up with fun patterns like polka dots or stripes. Either way, choose a fun color and let it light up your space.

If you’ve got old wooden furniture that simply isn’t reaching its full style potential, a little paint can bring it up to your level. Paint the whole thing, just the legs, the insides of bookshelves, or table tops. Be creative and be bold. If you don’t like it, you can always paint over it.


Bright pops of color might not be your thing, but that doesn’t mean that all hope of a stylish apartment is lost. Designate a color scheme, and work it in wherever you can. Pick a few colors and coordinate your room around them. This strategy can really pull a room together and make it look like the design was intentional. Make sure you don’t choose too many colors though. That mistake will have the opposite effect.


New apartments are often trimmed down to the bare necessities; a few couches, a table, and a bed. Accessories are a quick and exciting way to really make a space feel personal and beautiful. All it takes is a carefully chosen lamp, an artsy rug, and some colorful throw pillows to really bring a room together. Take the time to make sure you get cohesive pieces that make you happy.
