Moving into a new apartment is an exciting chapter. You’re given free rein to decorate your space however you want, with the opportunity to show off your style and interior taste.

However, it can also go horribly wrong if you don’t think it through. Before you decide what colour to paint your walls or which pictures to hang, consider the following tips on what to avoid when decorating your apartment.

Don’t ignore the size of the room

When you’re decorating a room, the first thing you need to do is measure it. This will help you figure out what furniture will fit and how much space you have to work with. If you don’t, then you may end up with furniture that’s too large or too small for the space.

Avoid filling the space too quickly

Take your time and plan ahead so you don’t rush into anything. Create a decorating plan that will help you put all of the pieces of the puzzle together instead of purchasing everything at once. Buy your items one at a time and avoid rushing the process. Slowing down the decorating experience helps prevent costly or inconvenient mistakes.

Don’t forget to embrace your personality

When it comes to decorating your apartment, it’s important to embrace your personality. This will help you create a space that feels like home and reflects who you are. Don’t be afraid to experiment and have fun with the process. It’s time to use your imagination and be creative!

Don’t settle for generic items

When you’re decorating a rented apartment, it’s worth avoiding generic items that will look like they belong in any other apartment. Instead, try to buy unique pieces that will make your space stand out. This will help to create a sense of individuality and personality. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different styles and colours. You may also want to consider using vintage items or handmade pieces.

Don’t over decorate

What is worse than a cluttered space? A cluttered space with too many decorations! One of the worst mistakes you can make when decorating your apartment is over decorating because it takes away from what makes your home comfortable and welcoming. It’s important to find a balance between too much and not enough when decorating an apartment.
