Finding the right curtains and furnishings to dress up an apartment

D. Palmacci

As an apartment dweller, you have to get creative about how you use your space in order to create warm, welcoming rooms. With the right window treatments, accent pieces and furniture arrangement, you can transform your most-used living space into a room that anyone would love to have in his or her own home.

HGTV recommends using furnishings that can serve more than one purpose. For instance, an ottoman can provide additional seating and could also act as a coffee table in a room that lacks the space for side or console tables. Look for a futon instead of a sofa to double as a bed for when guests spend the night.

Better Homes and Gardens Magazine encourages apartment dwellers to think about bringing in open-air furnishings, such as a couch or loveseat without armrests. This can create a clean, chic look that could also save space.

Finally, have an open mind when it comes to choosing colors for your furniture, curtains and walls (if your landlord permits you to paint). Think bright and bold to make your apartment feel more spacious and inviting. Taking these tips into consideration can make the interior design process simpler.
