An apartment is an occupant’s personal space. From the time a tenant moves in, the four walls become a home. From the furniture that is chosen to the art on the walls, apartments tell a story about whoever lives there.
There always comes a time for an apartment makeover, time to move the story forward to reflect where the tenant is today. Whether it is New York, San Francisco or Chicago apartments, a good place to start is the furniture. Is it time to get new furniture, or can the old comfy couch be rehabbed? Do you entertain more than when you first got the apartment? Perhaps you need to update the layout for company. Or, perhaps, this is chance to redo to the garden…
Do the research. Take time to browse through stores that catch your eye. Match up the colors, choose the art work, perhaps even replace an appliance or two. Maybe it is just a simple piece of new furniture or a new rug that your apartment needs…
Or it might be time to redo the bathroom, and even the bedroom as well, giving the feel that one is in a whole new apartment. A new shower curtain and a new set of towels can transform the bathroom. Perhaps a new headboard and a coat of paint on the dresser is just what the bedroom needs.
A few new plants can give your outside space a quick “Summer is here” face-lift, creating a tranquil place to spend warm nights.
Once the transformation has taken place, invite friends over and play hostess as if you have just moved in.
