It can be really easy to transform your flat from a functional but essentially uninteresting place to be to one that you can actually enjoy spending time in.
And with it being so easy to buy cheap home furniture online, it doesn’t have to cost much to totally transform your apartment.
You may decide to work through the place room by room, or to figure out a complete strategy for how you want to have the whole property before you start. Even if you have to do one room at a time, it’s a good idea to make a plan of how you are going to furnish each room, so that any furniture you buy in the future will complement what you already have.
For example if you’ve decided to buy one of those oak TV units that you’ve seen online, then you should look at getting all your living room furniture from the same range. You can take this further by continuing the oak furniture theme throughout your flat – even if not every room is furnished from the same exact collection. It’s a good idea not to mix too many types of wood like pine, oak, and mahogany or you run the risk of having too many different colours of wood.
Combine the purchase of some new furniture with a fresh coat of paint throughout to really make the difference. If possible, choose a paint colour that you can use in every room as this will make the whole flat appear more spacious. It also helps the rooms all flow together well and is handy for those times that you need to touch up the paintwork –you’ll know that you’ve got the right colour whatever room it’s needed in!
