When you move into a new apartment in Orlando, it always looks bland and empty until you decide to decorate it. Depending on where you decide to live, you might choose an already-furnished apartment. This might be a great choice for people who are looking to save some money on basic décor and furniture. For some, the furniture that you are automatically given when first moving in is simply not enough.
Making a space your own is such a fun and exciting experience that can make a basic apartment in Orlando feel more like home. Decorating a space can cost a lot of money if budgeting and DIY techniques are not involved. If you are committed to making your apartment fit with your hobbies and styles, there are plenty of creative ways to do this while saving money in the process!
Decorate the Walls of Your Apartment in Orlando
Yes, it's possible to decorate the walls of your Orlando apartment without damaging the walls and acquiring apartment damage fees when you move out! The way to do this is to invest in renter-friendly wallpaper. It can stick to the walls and liven up your space and when you are ready to leave, you can remove it without peeling off paint. Plus, if you get bored with the design or color of the wallpaper, you can change it as many times as you want.
For odd spaces like the kitchen and bathroom, available in stores are plenty of stick-on backsplashes that can add a pop of color to those small but noticeable places in your Orlando apartment. When you are cooking or taking a shower, the unique design and color can make the walls surrounding you seem more alive and less bleak.
Start Decorating from the Ground Up
The ground is something you walk on every day and because you see it all the time, why not make it more of a statement piece? I am talking about accent rugs and carpets. Not only do carpets feel nice on bare feet but they also provide another way to make a space feel complete and more utilized.
Measuring your room and researching standard rug sizes can help you decide how big the rug can be to still fit comfortably in your apartment in Orlando. Also, getting a rug that is washable is a great option for more populated areas like the kitchen and the living room. If you are thinking of putting a carpet in a room that has food, getting an apartment with a washer or dryer can help keep the rug clean and without stains.
Don't Forget Simple and Easy Design Accents
One of the smallest but most impactful choices to make when decorating an apartment is to incorporate small accents throughout the apartment. I prefer potted plants and flowers to bring nature inside with me. A vase with fresh flowers lets people know that the person who lives there interacts with the space every day and appreciates the smell of fresh flowers.
