Ideas to Steal for Your Apartment

Here are some ideas you should consider stealing for your apartment!


Basic shelves serve as a strong basis for rotating displays. They will go with almost anything, which means you can change the look of your walls in a very simple way!


If you don’t feel like, or can’t, paint the walls in your apartment, paint your furniture. A new paint job on a bed frame or bedside table can make a big difference.

Use mirrors

Mirrors reflect light and make a space feel bigger. Hang a mirror in your apartment’s dining space, living room, or bedroom across from a window, so it is in the best position to receive natural light and reflect it back into the room.

Think before placing furniture into place101600522.jpg.rendition.largest

Picture your apartment’s living space without any furniture to help you think beyond your current furniture arrangement. Decide if the room is large enough to divide up in to zones that will make the space more functional.

Bring life to your wallsframes

Go all out to fill up boring walls. Hang a grid of favorite pictures or prints inside frames with large mats.

Get more visual space

Use clear chairs or a glass-top table to visually expand the space and make it feel bigger. These will go well with an over-the-top table that grabs everyone’s atention, such as the Newton, fromBoca do Lobo.


The smallest of decorations can make a big impact. Bring personality to your apartment with plenty of fun pillows.

Use lighting in your favour

Good lighting can completely transform a room, and its source doesn’t necessarily need to be a ceiling fixture. Invest in lamps to place on tables, nightstands, and side tables. Position floor lamps to illuminate dark corners and hang plug-in wall sconces in hallways or above sofas.

And the best idea to steal: Always decorate your apartment to your image and have fun doing it!
