What steps have you taken to get comfortable in your new South Congress apartments? Some of our residents get their whole place furnished within 24 hours of move-in, while others take their time to find the best deals on couches, beds and other pieces. No matter which side of the spectrum you fall on, we can all agree that it’s important to furnish your place in a way that makes you comfortable and helps you express your personal style.
In the blog post below, we’ll be providing you with some tips that should help you accomplish your apartment furnishing goals. There are a lot of different ways to furnish the unique floor plans at Muse at SoCo, so think of these tips as guidelines rather than hard and fast rules. We’re not going to tell you which styles to use or anything like that, but we are going to provide you with some general rules that will help you turn your apartment into your ideal living space.
Let’s dive right into the list of tips, shall we? When you’re done reading this week’s blog, please feel free to share the link to this page with your friends. Better yet, go ahead and share it with your neighbors at Muse — the community of apartments on South Congress Austin residents choose for a luxurious lifestyle.
Pay attention to scale.
Everyone wants to have that huge sectional couch in their apartment, but few people think about the implications of buying such a large piece of furniture. A tiny coffee table will look silly next to a massive sofa, but a large coffee table might take up all your remaining floor space. Make sure that the furniture you buy makes sense not just on it’s own, but in relation to the other pieces you’ll have to put in your apartment.
Keep large pieces away from entrances.
This next tip isn’t common knowledge, but it can make a huge difference in the way you feel about your apartment. Next time you walk into your living room, pay attention to your view of the space while you’re standing in the entrance. Ideally, you should have larger pieces — like couches, entertainment centers and shelves — placed as far away from the entrance as possible. This will help you create clear visual sightlines and make your apartment seem more open.
Embrace bright colors
The lighter and brighter your apartment, the more open and airy it will seem. We’ve all been tempted to turn our apartments into cozy caves, but going that route results in having a space that seems smaller than it actually is. Instead of surrounding yourself with blacks, browns and purples, make the most of your apartment by bringing light blues and yellows into the mix.
