This blog is for every resident who just moved into Metropole apartments in Greenway Plaza. We’re happy to have so many new faces in the community, and we’re here to help you get situated in your new place. Whether you’ve been here for a week or a month, we want to make sure you feel comfortable in your new place.
With that in mind, we’ve decided to write a blog about the best ways to furnish your new place! We’re not here to help you decide between the leather couch and the suede one, or tell you to get a wood coffee table instead of a metal one. What we are here to do, however, is share some general guidelines that should help you make the most of your available floor space. Living in an apartment is all about maximizing square footage, using light to your advantage and creating a space you’re comfortable in.
Our hope is that by sharing the tips below, we’ll help you do just that! Let’s get right to the post, shall we? Oh, and when you’re done reading through this week’s blog, please feel free to share the link to this page with your friends and neighbors at your community of Greenway Plaza apartments.
Make room for rugs
A good rug can do a lot for a room. A large rug can set the tone for the whole ambiance of the room, while a small rug can section off one part of the room to be used as a reading nook, a dog-area, or whatever you like. If you’re going to get a rug, get one with a light color. Dark rugs might hide spills and stains better, but if you can keep it clean, a light can do wonders to brighten up a room and make it seem more open and airy.
Pay attention to scale
If you’ve ever been in a well-furnished apartment that looks like it was assembled by an interior designer, you know the importance of scale. Having furniture that matches in terms of size goes a long way towards making your space seem more put together. If you buy a massive couch, you’re going to need a massive coffee table and end tables to match. If you buy a moderately sized couch, however, you can be a little more flexible with the rest of your furniture.
Keep large furniture away from the entrance
Your biggest furniture should be in the back of the room. That way, you’ll have clear sightlines when you walk into the room. This make a huge difference when it comes to your own — and your guests’— perception of your space!
