Roman shades enhance the apartment dweller's domain
Oct 11 2010
Apartment decorating options include using roman shades to give a rental home some style.
Living in a rental unit brings with it a number of restrictions about what can be done with walls and flooring. But today's savvy apartment dweller has a variety of options to brighten up any space, owned or leased, without breaking the bank or abandoning one's style.
According to LowesCreativeIdeas.com, one way to add personality is to remove the standard issue wall plates on electric switches, and replace them with some that match a room's colors and furniture. When it's time to move, the originals can be re-installed in a flash.
Roman shades in a wide range of fabrics give a timeless quality to any décor, and have a softer look that works best in a residential setting. Light-filtering roman shades allow natural light to permeate a room without giving up privacy.
Area rugs come in many of sizes, shapes and textures and can tie together furniture pieces into a cozy, unified look. Some are bold enough to set the tone for the entire room.
In the same way, wall appliques offer a peel and stick decorating option that won't leave a trace when it's time to move. They come in soft floral trims or wilder prints that enhance walls and other hard surfaces.
