Personalize Your Apartment in Raleigh, NC

Auston Grove Apartments in RaleighHave you recently moved into an apartment in Raleigh, NC?  Now it's time to personalize your space. Here's a tip: Be willing to break a few rules.

Reimagine Rooms

This situation is no different than homeowners who buy a new-to-them home with slightly quirky features, and let’s be real, what homes don’t have slightly quirky features? Renters should forget about how a room is supposed to be used, and make it work for their own tastes. For example, cord-cutters don’t need to feel constrained by a cable jack, and a dining area could be better used as a space for a desk.

Right-Size Your Decor

Just because you live in small square footage, don’t think it requires small furniture. That is absolutely the wrong idea. Yes, your furniture should be appropriately scaled for the space. But too many small furniture pieces will make your home look smaller than fewer, more thoughtfully chosen pieces.

Do Double Duty

What about using a folded-down, gate-leg table as a console, either tucked behind a sofa or perhaps in an entry? When you host a large dinner party, it easily becomes a second dining table. Pieces that hide—nesting tables in the living room or ottomans under an open console table—have the benefit of being useful in a flash, without taking up extra space.

Float Away

Pushing everything against the wall is likely not the best use of space. Pull furniture toward the middle of the room, away from the walls. You can float your sofa, which made the living area feel substantially larger.
