Most Orlando apartments will come with blinds on the windows. Many residents find this sufficient and won't bother with curtains, but it can be a fantastic addition to the mood and overall look of your unit. If you're having trouble coming up with ideas for curtain types and placement, you can always check out one of the many boards on Pinterest. For example, if you search for "living room curtains," you'll be able to search through these images and find something that inspires you. You can replicate the same search for bedroom and kitchen curtains. While the photo on Pinterest will often link you to the exact curtains for sale online, you can always find something with a similar look at one of the home goods shops near Orlando apartments, like Lowes, Home Depot, or department stores. You can even use the website to search for tutorials on how to make your own curtains.

Aside from adding curtains to your windows, you can also place additional items on the windowsill to embellish your rooms. For example, you can find small to medium sized plants that will thrive from the sunshine near the window. You can even grow some blooming plants and enjoy their flowers during the right season. Nearby shops with plants will be able to give you additional info about each type of plant, giving you step by step directions on their care. If you're bringing a cat to apartments near Orlando or plan on adopting one, you can find a cat window perch for sale at nearby Petsmart, Petco, and sometimes Wal-Mart. It is the ultimate way for your cat to enjoy the sunshine and wildlife without worrying about the dangers from outside. You won't have any trouble finding pet friendly apartments in this area.

If you choose a unit with large bay windows, this opens up a world of possibilities for this extra space. Add decorative pillows and blankets to create a comfy reading or napping space.
