Girl Apartment Decorating Ideas
For wall colors go for shades of pink, yes..yes I know it is typical girl color. But, you just don’t have to stick with pink. You can add accents of pink to your wall trims, or paint wall white with pink vertical thick stripes. Other wall color options include yellow, purple, green, orange, etc. You can also go for light shades of these colors and paint your rooms. Also, you can experiment with some interior paint colors and ideas, like the striped effect, or get wall textured or rubber stamp one wall with multi-color flowers and leave the rest of the three walls white. Use bed sheets with some nice designs, some pretty color lamps, vases and curtains to decorate your apartment. For additional lights, you can go for the Chinese paper lamps, which are pretty cheap and available in various colors. You can try some DIY project like canvas art ideas, and hang them on your walls. You can always keep your apartment bit empty, and keep adding to the decoration later, when you find the right stuff.
Guy Apartment Decorating Ideas
Wall colors like brown, gray or shades of blue can be used to paint the walls. You can also experiment with some wall color ideas, like paint the living room walls in light shade of gray and hang on one wall your LCD TV. On the wall opposite to the TV, paint the complete wall in black, and then paint large bobs of fluorescent paint color to give twist to your living room decor. Go for items which have sleek look, like the modern furniture of steel lamps, glass coffee table with steel legs, metal chairs with black furniture seats, backrest, etc. Mix some black leather furniture with steel decorating items, and you will have an ultra-cool and modern looking apartment.
Funky Apartment Decorating Ideas
For those who appreciate color and don’t mind their apartment looking something which is part of the 70’s can go for this theme to create unique home decor. Go for some bright shades of color like, green, red, purple, yellow, etc. Ideas like white polka dots on purple wall, flower rubber stamps on the walls, striped walls, etc. will also help in giving funky look to your apartment. You can go for some painting which glows in black light, and keep some fluorescent stuff around to create funky night theme which will glow when the lights in the apartment are off. Add any weird or modern shaped furniture like chairs and table, maybe water bed if its comfortable, and have floor-sitting in your living room, by keeping rug and few cushions, and hookah to add more to the effect.
Family Apartment Decorating Ideas
For family apartment you will need to consider each individual and will have to paint the individual rooms accordingly. But, for the rooms where everybody visits like, the living and kitchen, you can paint them in any color you like. For living room you can go for off-white walls, with cherry or brown shades of furniture, black LCD TV, big couch in dark shade (leather black couch because they go with everything and give modern look), and accompanying chairs. Go for black appliances and steel furniture for kitchen decorating, and paint it in lavender color, for modern kitchen look.
Small-sized But Bigger Looking Apartment
If you have smaller apartment, with some smart ideas you can create an illusion of more space, and open up the room. Go for any shades which are close to white like light gray, off-white and yellow. The thing you need to do is use interior decorating plan in such way, that one gets the illusion of more light in the apartment. So, try getting additional light fixtures to increase the amount of light. Keep your apartment uncluttered, and go for furniture which looks compact, but gives you lot of space to store inside it. Try not to add to many decorating items to your rooms, just some 2-3 items per room will do, like lamp, vase, house plant or painting.
Bathrooms and bedrooms are spaces which should not be overdecorated. Bedrooms are meant to be place for one to relax, and sleep. And, bathrooms are meant to be for taking baths and well you know… Don’t use too much bright colored items or wall colors for this space. You can keep some light color and your personal favorite items to decorate your bedroom, but for bathrooms go for white or off-white shade, and keep things uncluttered. To decorate your bathroom, use small indoor plant like lucky bamboo, some hanging wooden shelves to store your lotions and soaps, and hang nice lamp to make your apartment bathroom look bigger.
Well, I can go on and on. But, I guess you got the idea. Even if you are not following apartment decoration ideas of particular theme, make sure you don’t put some items which totally mismatch with other furnishings or wall colors. And, make sure the transition from one room of the apartment to other room, should be smooth one. Other than these two things, try out your own ideas with the above mentioned ideas and everything will turn out just fine, and you will have beautiful looking apartment decorated by the most known person to you, which is ‘you’! So, have fun decorating your apartment!
