We get it; living in an apartment can be tough, especially when your options are limited by the laws of your landlord. However, don't let this stop you from getting the interior you want. Here are some easy apartment decor ideas that lets you update your space's look without breaking your rental rules. The best part: these quick fixes are easy, practical, and can easily work with whatever space you have.
Throw in a beautiful tray on your centre table or console. Not only does it designate a specific area for your table baubles, but you can easily move it from room to room when you want a change of style.
How about a drink trolley? Set up your very own cocktail station to display your favourite items. Plus, you can wheel it around your apartment whenever you have guests coming over!
Line up your vases. They don't have to be regularly filled with flowers, but structural vases in their own are already stunning. White ceramics create a lovely neutral feeling in the room. Metallic vases add an exotic, vintage flair.
A splash of paint can easily update the style of your room. After finding the right colour, spend a weekend to update an accent wall. Our favourite hues include a fresh green or a lovely hint of teal that makes the home appear cosy.
Side tables, anyone? Instead of choosing a large centre table, break the area apart by using smaller tables in different shapes. If you've got the eye, you can also mix and match heights and finishes for an eccentric charm.
How about a change of chairs? Instead of bulky arm chairs, using slimmer chairs will make your apartment look wider. Alternatively, you can use these chairs as accent objects to create varying looks in the room.
Double the rugs. A solid coloured rug on your patterned carpet provides layers in the eyes as well as the feet.
Lighting, lighting, lighting. Add a lamp to your side table for a quick illumination. Or change the shade of your pendant light for that Scandinavian minimalist feel. Our suggestions for apartment decor lighting: Concrete Timber Pendant, Cage Lights and our Arc Floor Lamp.
Make the room bigger with a mirror. The wider, the better; these decor items come in gorgeous shapes and designs. They add frames to your walls while reflecting light.
Change your cushion covers. Instantly update your apartment decor by switching up your pillow cases. Choose colours and patterns that go well with the room's theme. This will add an unexpected dash of colour, as well as a nice visual interest.
Opt for an open storage. Stack your favourite books in an open storage like a DIY shelving or a metal rack. You may not be able to drill holes into the wall, but you can still show off your collection with this organizing idea.
Tired of blinds? How about drapes? Give your apartment a dash of personality with printed curtains. They add a nice pop of colours, and they make the space more lived-in.
Art it up. Decorate boring walls with a grid of your favourite pictures to recreate a feeling of a gallery. The bigger white space inside the frame, the bigger the illusion of space, making it a less-cluttered display.
Crates for tables. These industrial-inspired homewares can also double as a storage for your essentials (or messes). After all, updating your apartment's decor does not only involve adding more items, but keeping unneeded ones out of the way.
Go green when you can. A few potted succulents on your table will immediately liven up your apartment decor, both visually and health-wise.
