The metro lifestyle has seen the trend of residential shift from a permanent home to rented apartments. With every new job or a change in lifestyle, you may move again. This essentially means you will need to move to a new apartment every few years. However, wherever you go, you will wish to decorate after you move in, to make the place suit your taste. Here are a few quick tips to help you out –

1. Decorating with Lighting

Try using multi-colored LED lights at key places. They provide a great way of setting the mood with a single switch. Fun shades over lamps and wall-mounted CFLs will provide your space with a unique personality, ranging from snazzy to cheeky.

Overhead lights, if possible, are inexpensive and provide an effective way to make small rooms look bigger and brighter.

2. Decorating the Flooring 

Most apartments come with a standard tiled flooring, which tends to dull out after some time. Your new landlord has no incentive to replace the dull flooring until it cracks or breaks. Therefore, the fastest way to decorate after you move to a new apartment is by using carpets and rugs.

This will be less costly if you go exclusively for rugs. Make sure they are bright in color and cover the center spot of the room.

3. Decorating the Windows

Whatever your apartment size, make sure your windows are prominent and not obstructed by furniture or other decorations. Windows not only provide natural light, but also make the apartment breezier in appearance.

You can use self-adhesive window films to get a colored or patterned light in the room.

4. Decorating with Flower Pots

After you move to a new apartment, a true way to customize it is by placing flower pots everywhere. Similar ideas which need a DIY approach from you are also mentioned here.

5. Decorating the Doors

You can do the most eye-catching decoration around the doors inside your new apartment. A simple plastic flower row or paper cutouts around each door frame is a simple but effective way of getting a cooler look in a matter of minutes.

There is a myriad of awesome decoration tips which you can use once you move to a new apartment. Most of them are a lot of fun and easy to do. However, please ensure that when you move after a few years, your decorations should not be left behind. Avoid permanent decorations involving heavy repainting, or ones requiring a lot of nails on the walls. The best solution is to ask your landlord before you undertake any such work. As long as you both agree on your decoration, you should be good to go.
