Cover Your Floors

Most of the time especially when you are just renting the space, you don’t have the time or rights to change the floorings. But what should you do if the apartment’s flooring is just too old and boring? You can come with an extra-large area rug to cover up the old floor which coordinates with the other decorations.

Have an Entertainment Section

Put up your TV in the center and add some spice with it like hanging a paneled artwork and having many storage surrounding it. In addition to this, having a piece of furniture beneath a wall-mount TV grounds it and stops it from seeming as if there’s a random black object floating on the wall.

Fill Up Boring Walls

Boring walls is the first enemy you can get from renting spaces. Try hanging a grid of your favorite pictures with large mats. Larger mats create the needed white space for having an active display.
