Here are some design tips to help you get started:
- Define your style –
Take some time to explore and be inspired by different design styles to help you identify what appeals to you. Look through design websites, magazines, and social media platforms like Pinterest to gather inspiration and create a mood board. This will help you establish a cohesive look for your apartment.
- Set a budget –
Create a budget on how much you are willing to spend in decorating your first apartment. This budget will guide your purchasing decisions and prevent overspending. Decorating your home is a continuous process and more appealing elements get to trend every now and then. If you are someone who likes to switch things up, then begin small. Look for affordable options, explore resale stores and consider DIY projects to save money.

- Prioritize essential furniture –
When designing your home, it is best to begin with the essential furniture. Consider buying your bed, living room chairs, tables, sofa etc, before you buy that artwork you have dreamed to own in your home since forever.
- Incorporate storage solutions –
When designing a home, incorporating effective storage solutions is crucial for maximizing space and maintaining an organized living environment. Consider using built-in cabinets, walk-in closets, under-stair storage, multi-functional furniture, etc, to maximize space.
- Consider scale and proportion –
When selecting furniture and decorative items, consider the scale and proportion of your apartment. Avoid overwhelming the space with oversized furniture in a small apartment or using tiny accessories in a large space. Aim for a balanced and harmonious arrangement.
