The Easiest & Best Ways to Decorate an Apartment, Lexington-Fayette Central, Kentucky

Whether you’ve just moved in or are looking to change things up, apartments offer a blank slate for you to exercise your creative muscles on. With a vast array of options at your disposal, the right decorations can make your apartment more exciting without breaking your budget.

5 Apartment Decoration Tips

1. Install Removable Wallpaper

Installing removable wallpaper is a two-person DIY project. You can choose between wallpapering an entire room, or finding a pattern to accent a single wall with an eye-catching design. If you’re decorating your bedroom, choose a calming pattern, but if you’re accenting another room, choose something bright and exciting that’ll give the area some pop.

2. Use Floor LampsApartments

Apartments can feel new with a simple change of lighting. Floor lamps are easy to install and work best in living rooms. They provide a sense of intimacy when you have guests over, and cozy warmth when you’re doing some late-night reading.

3. Hang Mirrors

Adding a floor-length mirror can create the illusion of depth in smaller apartments. Placing one near a window will reflect natural light that’ll make your space look larger while hanging a mirror on the wall will make your apartment appear more open.

4. Consider Storage Space

Even large apartments only have so much room. Over time, it’s easy to find yourself feeling a little cluttered. Give yourself some room to breathe with furniture that offers secret storage space. There are storage beds, TV stands, and coffee tables that have extra drawer space to house your excess books, blankets, and trinkets.   

5. Try Accent Rugs

Most apartments don't have carpeting, but accent rugs can add color and make the floors safer and more comfortable to walk on. They come in a variety of patterns and styles, ranging from classic and muted to bold and modern. A well-placed accent rug can be used to either tie the room’s décor together or add excitement to a neutral-colored room.
