5 Items that can Make or Mar your New Apartment

An attractive apartment is not just dependent on how much you spend renovating it but much more on the choice of colour, design, quality etc. items you use.

Have you ever wondered why two apartments designed alike could appear so different on the interior? Two tenants, each occupying separate but similarly built apartments, could have their apartments appear so differently – one ugly, the other tush – depending on the following five (5) items used in the different apartments


Window Blind

When you walk into an apartment, one of the first things you’re likely to set your eyes on is the window blind (commonly but wrongly called ‘cotton’) used on the window. It’s like a dressing to the interior of your apartment, hence, you should give it serious consideration. Remember, the way you’re dressed is the same way you’d be addressed. Same applies to the way dress your living room.

In addition, you should ensure the wiring of your apartment is not visible. If it’s a rented apartment and the wiring appears on the outside, you should repaint the wall in such a way that makes the wiring unnoticeable.

Wall Paint

The colour of paint used in your new apartment cannot be overemphasised when it comes to making your living room and apartment as a whole appear attractive. You should choose paint with not only attractive colours but also high durability. More so, you could make use of glossy paints for your living room to give it a shiny appearance.
