interior design ideas with small apartment ideas part 1


One thing to plan out when trying to make your small apartment seem less small is the color palette. You don't need to purely use light toned paint color when making up for smallness in a room. If you want to decorate with bright or deep colors in your apartment you can get color without making the room look even smaller if you choose a monochromatic palette, or one where the colors are all the same brightness. You might even try a mauve color palette, or if you fancy more color go with purple, green and blue that all have an equal intensity and tone. To add depth to the room, work on painting the wall opposite the entrance a deep, intense hue - this makes it look further away plus adds an unusual touch. For wall shades, pale hues like blueish gray will provide an overall larger appearance as they give the feel of the walls receding. If you desire something a lot of interesting, cool colors including purple, green and blue will provide the same illusion.

Choosing the Best Furniture Store

When deciding on a furniture store to do business with, there are several important factors to consider and many options to decide on. First, you'll want to think of the type of furniture you're interested in purchasing, although a great number of stores and furniture dealers have pieces in a wide variety of styles that are designed to blend in with any type of d├ęcor.

Fortunately, several stores offer layaway or interest free plans to qualified customers on purchases over a certain amount. Many stores also have sales near most holidays, with some having end of the season clearance events as well as rebates and a variety of discounts.

Also when choosing a place to buy furniture, inquire ahead of time about their shipping and delivery policies, and find out if there are any extra fees involved for assembling or setting up the furniture after delivery. Some stores will also haul away old furniture as well, but may charge extra for the service. It's also smart to choose a furniture store with the reputation of good customer service and return policies. A good furniture store will have everything necessary to completely furnish a room, not only couches, chairs, and tables, but also lighting, rugs, with some even having window treatments, bedding, mattresses, pictures, wall hangings, and a host of other decorative accessories. For the bedroom, the best stores should have a choice of beds in every size and style, from four poster beds complete with head and footboards, as well as futons and daybeds, bunk beds, and a variety of children's beds and furniture. The best type of youth furniture collections are those that are durable and adjustable so that they "grow" along with the child.

Do not forget about cleaning the furniture

If you have hardwood floors this makes for a difficult problem too. Cleaning under them is just as hard. The added problem is that in moving the furniture it is easy to slide. But this creates a problem and the furniture can scratch the flooring or damage the floors finish.

The best way around this is to go to a local store and purchase 1 to 2 inch felt pads that adhere on one side to the bottom of the furniture. This makes the furniture very easy to move around without damaging the floor or the floors finish. Also the furniture is not damaged either. Just remember to lighten all furniture before moving to clean under it.

When pulling out drawers be very careful not to drop them on your feet or you may end up with broken toes or damaged floors or drawers. Most beds can be taken apart for easy moving around and then reassembled after the cleaning is done.

Do not forget about cleaning the furniture itself also. This is very important in your furniture's care and will make it last longer and retain it's beauty longer. If you invest in good quality furniture, it is important to use a good quality furniture polish as well.

The Bedroom Furniture And Cleaning

Be aware of the material being used in the making of the furniture. The product description may not be enough to tell of its quality. The best thing to do is to look over the individual bedroom furniture pieces. Kick the tires if you will, give it the once over. Shake the furniture to see if it wobbles. Lie on the bed to test it's firmness, check the legs and the tightness of the construction. Give special attention to the bed posts as they must lie flat. No one wants a wobbly bed.

If your budget allows it, it may be a good idea to buy furniture that will last longer. Most bedroom sets are made four ways, hardwood, wood, laminates or particle board, and or veneer.

Most bedroom furniture is made of wood, particle board covered with veneer. The furniture can be heavy. If it is on carpeting it will be hard to move and to clean under. You will probably need some assistance in moving it. Remove dresser drawers and nightstand drawers to make the furniture lighter. Remove items off the tops of the furniture before moving. Take off bed spreads and mattress to make the bed lighter and easier to carry.

Other sources for buying furniture
