College Apartment Colors And Decor
I have distant memories of the first time I lived out on my own, but I do remember how excited I was of thought of rooming with friends my own age and having the freedom, as well as being able to decorate the place.
Times have changed over the years but many students are enjoying the opportunity when away at school to live in an apartment with friends.
Most young people choose their roommates when moving into an apartment. The excitement builds and then you realize, how am I going to decorate and what decor are we going to have?
This page will give you some simple ideas of taking all of your personalities and blending them together to make a comfortable and enjoyable living environment.
If you are able to paint the walls, plan in advance your color scheme. Allowing each member of the apartment to create their own personality, will add harmony to everyday living. Apartment sizes vary in many geographic locations. If your apartment is small, paint warm and light colors that will create a larger look and feel.
Lets now take a look at the other scenario, you can't paint the walls so what to do? I have lived in a college apartment where we couldn't paint the walls. This is where you can get a little creative into making your apartment a fun place to live for everyone. Here are a few ideas for you when you can't paint the walls.
One of the biggest challenges college students have is the budget issue. So many of you are on a fixed budget. So, how do you create a wonderful living space on a budget that may not be large?
There are many big chain stores around that you can get good deals on bedding, curtains and furniture. Look around at other discount places in your area. Work together as a team when planning your decorating scheme for the apartment. I like to recommend taking a theme and create your college apartment off one or two themes.
I remember when my husband and I went to college. Being college sweethearts, many ages ago, we did some crazy things. I know you some of you can relate to that. One of the things my husband did in his freshmen year was to decorate his room with pizza boxes. The one corner of the room was stacked with empty boxes of pizza all done in a geometric design. I remember visiting him on weekends and seeing the stack grow in size.
Maybe a silly way of decorating, but at the time, he took his own personality and that crazy memory is still with us today. However you plan on decorating your college apartment, respect others that are living with you.
College apartment and dorm bed accessories. Blend in your personalities with interests that each of you have. Bring in those college colors in a room or two. Choose colors and textures that will compliment each other. The most important aspect of decorating your apartment, is enjoy the process of planning and decorating. Once you have graduated, you will never get those years back, but the memories you make now can live on for years to come. Create your apartment for all of you and your friends to enjoy!
