How To Pick The Best Apartment Furniture
If you know absolutely nothing about interior decorating, this will help get you started. But do a little more research before you start buying mismatched apartment furniture.
1. Pick a Theme and Stick With It
Learn about the different types of furniture themes. Do you want minimalist? Modern? Chic? Post modern? Traditional? Wood? Rustic? Antique? Stainless steel? Figure out what you like and work within that theme.
2. Mind Your Budget
Don't buy a $2,000 piece of furniture if you only make $10/hour. Buy what you can afford.
3. Less is More
You don't have to put furniture everywhere. Start with a few items at first and build up from there.
4. Don't Forget to Measure
Door frames, rooms, corners, all of it. You don't want to buy a community couch for the hallway outside your door.
