Deciding to move into your very first apartment at Harborside Village is an exciting experience. You’ve seen all of our new addition amenities, checked out the pool, and taken a walk alongside Gunpowder Cove. You’re ready to fill your one-to-two bedroom apartment space with your belongings and decorate until you’ve made your space entirely your own. As a first-time apartment dweller, there are a few top 3 decorating mistakes that you’ll want to avoid inside of your apartment. While excellent interior design doesn’t simply happen overnight, we can help you maximize your living space and make it aesthetically pleasing.

You Don’t Need to Invest in New Furniture for Your First Apartment Immediately

Just because you’ve placed a deposit on your first apartment doesn’t mean you have to immediately go out and purchase furniture to fill every square inch of your apartment space. Understand that interior decorating doesn’t happen overnight, but it is a gradual process of acquiring furniture and knick-knacks to fill your space intentionally. Instead, make a list of all the essentials you need. Spend time searching for the best pieces, and gradually make an investment in furniture that you can see yourself owning for the long term. 

Investing in Solely Cheap Items

When you’re decorating your first apartment, you’ll want to take into consideration your budget. It’s easy to say that you only want to purchase affordable and cheap items, but your furniture and accessories should be a healthy mix. You’ll want to make high-quality investments in the furniture you own, pair with essential accessories from thrift stores and Target, to create a healthy blend of cheap and high-quality goods. Decorating your apartment with a mix of price points can help increase your floor plan’s overall aesthetic, creating a beautiful layout that you’ve thoughtfully curated.

Arranging Your Furniture Without a Flow

Another decorating mistake? Arranging your furniture without a sense of flow. All of our one-to-two bedroom apartments feature spacious floor plan layouts, which you’ll want to decorate accordingly to ensure the maximum flow. By working with your apartment’s floor plan design, you can create an effortless flow throughout your apartment. For example, in an open living room space, you won’t want to block the space off with a couch that blocks any open walking area. This can affect your apartment’s overall feng shui, leading it to feel cluttered and less spacious.
