Whether you are looking to make quick changes to your space or you want a complete decor refresh, there are plenty of ways to spruce up your apartment no matter your budget. Lawrence Lake Interiors, a boutique interior design firm that specializes in multifamily projects, gives its top tips for ways to rearrange your room to give your space some personality and fun, as well as provides expert organization inspiration.
Start with Art
A simple and easy way to add some color, excitement and charm to your apartment is through statement art pieces. Seek out pieces that speak to you, your personality and your style. If you have a lot of blank space on a wall, try to find large, oversized items that can bring in some unexpected fun. Whether it’s a big piece of art or an oversized patterned blanket, these decorations can cover more space and are a simple thing that you can do to your room to make a bigger impression.
This apartment in Homestead Talking Glass in Prescott Valley perfectly weaves in art as focal points throughout the space. The large painting over the couch adds some unexpected pops of color, along with some fun texture to the living room. On top of that, the cowboy hats hanging in the dining room are a great way to use everyday items in a new way.
Spice Up Your Furniture
If you are looking to make your room better through bigger, more dramatic changes, taking a fresh look at your furniture can be one of the best places to start. It’s important to look at how your furniture is functioning for you and comfortability is a major factor. If a piece of furniture isn’t comfortable, that is going to greatly impact how you feel in your space. On top of that, really highlighting your personal style through your furniture is key. If you are looking to have more fun with your space, a big peacock chair can be a good fit for you. If you want to add in some more muted hints of funky style, a hippy lamp can add some charm to your space and fits in perfectly with mid-century decor.

Storage is Key
When living in an apartment, effective and functional storage is crucial to make the most of your space. For some organization inspiration, consider looking at some of your focal storage pieces with new eyes. While many individuals are using dining room buffets and bedroom dressers less often, these pieces can be repurposed and utilized in different ways and in different spaces. These items often have an abundance of storage space so reevaluating how you use them before tossing them is important. For example, a dresser can be utilized outside of the bedroom — such as under the TV in the living room for additional storage for board games, blankets, kids’ toys and more.
Whether you are looking to make minor or big changes in order to revitalize your space, there are a variety of adjustments you can make in order to integrate more of your personality into your home. When thinking about ways to rearrange your room, consider all of the ways you can weave in style, functionality and mood into your space in order to create your perfect oasis.
