Small Changes Can Make a Big Difference in Your Apartment’s Decor

You don’t have to spend a lot of money to upgrade your apartment decor. With some ingenuity, a good eye and the patience to hunt, you’ll be amazed how you can change your apartment’s decor with small changes.

Move it around
Sometimes, just rearranging the furniture can make a huge difference in the look and feel of a room. You can swap pieces from another part of your apartment or switch what’s along the walls within the same room. Creating new combinations of your pieces can give any room a fresh start.

Add accessories
With a few well-placed accessories, you can really spice up your apartment decor. Area rugs and pillows can be packed with color, adding warmth and energy. Window coverings make for a colorful focus to the subdued hues of your room or can add texture. You don’t want to overdo it, but finding the right patterns and colors for these inexpensive add-ons can give your room a real boost.

Rotate your exhibits
We all have things on display, whether or not we realize it. Look around your apartment. Are there trophies, photos or hobbies on the furniture, bookcases or walls? Why not cycle in some new items? Changing the photos in frames, your posters, awards or collectibles can create an array of eye-catching possibilities for you and your guests.

If you’re ready for a change in your apartment decor, think small. Affordable little differences can give your apartment a big new image.
