So you’ve just moved into your first apartment or upgraded to a larger space. Perhaps you haven’t yet taken the plunge and you’re considering a big move. Congratulations! No matter where you are in the journey, it’s an exciting time. You probably want to make sure you do everything just right to prevent unnecessary purchases and rearranging multiple times. Here are some tips for decorating your new luxury apartment in a way that suits your aesthetic, your lifestyle, and not least of all, the space you’ve chosen.

Plan Your Layout
Now that you have ample room to work with, you’ll want to take stock of several things: the floor plan, the position of the windows and architectural features, and the transition and flow between rooms and spaces.

In an open-concept floor plan like Hayden Flats Apartments in Bloomington, you have a flexible space that allows you to place your furniture in various configurations, depending on usage. Position your largest furniture items first. If you have a sectional sofa or one with a chaise, you’ll want to consider how the placement will impact the flow of traffic, conversation areas, and functional zones within your larger space. You can use lighting, rugs, chairs, and end tables to further section off or open up these zones.

What’s Your Color Palette?
If you already have furniture for your new apartment, you can choose accessories and additional pieces to blend in or contrast with it. If you’re starting from scratch, consider choosing a base color and then selecting a couple of accent colors to coordinate with it. Aim for a balance between warm and cool tones, Don’t be afraid to select colors that are unique and reflective of you and your personality, but they shouldn’t be so obscure that you’ll have trouble finding decor and accessories to match. Your base color should be more neutral while your accents can be a little darker or louder, as they’ll be used to add smaller pops of color throughout your space.

Make Your Space Uniquely Yours
The art, lighting, accent pieces, and focal points in your apartment will be what make the space unique. An original art piece like a sculpture or a painting from a local artist can define the space while allowing you to lean into your local community. By Hand in Bloomington is a locally owned, cooperative gallery featuring glass, wood, fiber, photography, and 3D mixed media, a perfect place just a few minutes from Hayden Flats Apartments where you can find a special piece of art for your new home.

Use Your Storage Effectively
One thing residents love about Hayden Flats is the storage. A large pantry and walk-in closets will help keep your space clutter-free, and the ample kitchen and bathroom cabinets ensure you won’t have to worry about a lot of clutter taking up valuable countertop space. Multifunctional furniture like storage ottomans and tables with shelving are great ways to conceal extra bedding, blankets, and books, and tall shelves can help you maximize vertical space and get items up off the floors so you’re not tripping over bins and baskets.

Accessorize with Plants
Indoor hanging and trailing plant displays are a great way to add color and a touch of nature to your new apartment. Be sure to consider how much water and sunlight your plants will need and place them accordingly. A stunning Variegated Monstera Deliciosa can make a great statement piece or focal point in a room, but little touches of greenery like small succulents also make a space appear more inviting.
