Once you have shifted to your new Lafayette Apartments, the next thing you would think is how to make the ambiance friendly so you may feel like living in a “home”. You also need to do renovation so as to properly channelize the given space of the apartment.
First of all, make a list of all the furniture, crockery items and other appliances you have and keep on ticking them once you have placed them to their respective spots. This reduces your work load of moving haphazardly around. Then comes the major step of how to renovate. Here are some tips that may come in handy. Search for the spaces that you may think may be used for your furniture. Larger tables are easy to transform. Organize items on top into portable chests that can be moved easily.
Another technique is to cover up the dining table with a vibrant cloth and use the space underneath for storage. If your room has got high ceilings, use it. Built wooden closets on the walls where you can place your TV, magazines and your favorite novels and also your clothes. The cupboard to hold the clothes should be separate. Use the available space. Wall paintings and posters can be pasted to the walls, but a lot of them means you are too “showy”.
Try moving the furniture around. This enables you to create the new space. Try arranging the furniture in the middle of the room to create space around the walls. Try breaking up the room into smaller sections. You may place a table with two chairs at one section to create space for the sofa in the other section. If the furniture is large, try to rotate it in every direction to see which direction takes the least space. The use of “floating” shelves has gained a lot of popularity in the apartments. These shelves can be filled with decorative objects, and the back can be used for storage purposes. The advantage of these shelves is that you can change its taste by altering the items on it. Furthermore, paint the walls with the color you like. If that is not possible, then you have the option to paint the furniture. A new paint on the side tables or the show case can be just as impactful as the new color on the walls. Rugs of different sizes and colors can be effectively used to brighten up the place without costing too much. (Rugs are way cheaper than the carpets). Wall and door hangings can add flavor to the environment. But do not cramp up every door and entrance with them, it feels so annoying.
If you need new furniture for the apartment, look for the ones that offer multitasking. There are beds available with underneath storage cubicles, small tables with invisible closets attached with the backside, etc. Try getting items that are vertical, like refrigerators. Horizontal items take a lot of rooms.
