Keep It Simple, the number one key to decorating your student apartment! If you have stayed at the house of mom and dad, leave all the non-essentials at home and carry with you the things you really need.Have a look at Furnished Student Apartments NYC for more info on this.
Start with basic furnishings and shaped furniture to match in with the room. Mom’s old couch may be safe but can also fill up half the living space. Unless the rooms are lined wall-to-wall, you’ll definitely feel cramped and awkward. Allow spacious places to maneuver and the freedom to pass. For a little imagination, the department stores and even the thrift shops will purchase furnishings cheaply. A quick coat of paint can sometimes produce a whole new item. Search for furniture that has a dual function, such as a dining table or bench beneath, with storage space.
Monochromatic color schemes work better in limited room. Light and neutral colors can offer you a feeling of more room, but add some color splashes to keep the mood bright and dry. Attach patterns, such as decorative floor pillows, sofa throws or scatter rugs, to smaller pieces. Too often mixing colors and shapes can render you feel a bit dizzy and have trouble focusing.
Stay well organised! Using bins or disposable storage devices to hold your office, dressing space, kitchen and bathroom clear of clutter. Get creative and use the space beneath your computer table, over the kitchen cabinets or under the bed. Decorate with enthusiasm but set ‘a place for everything’ and then try to keep ‘all in place.’
