You have just moved into a rented apartment, and herthe state leaves much to be desired and certainly does not cause thoughts of comfort? Don't want to get involved in a hopeless repair of someone else's living space, but shabby walls don't suit you either? We know how to equip a temporary home quickly, simply and efficiently. It’s not for nothing that they say that we don’t carry our burden. Indeed, in my home, old furniture, a worn carpet and a chandelier come from childhood, rather, bring back pleasant memories, which cannot be said about a dilapidated sofa in a rented apartment. What nostalgia there is! But there is an opinion that it makes no sense to spend money on repairs and major renovation of someone else's apartment. But what if the new home is unsuitable for a comfortable life? Our answer is to make it cozy as quickly as possible. Will you be in time in 24 hours? Step one:throwing it out So, you have moved into a new apartment and it is full of master's things. Most of them will definitely not be necessary for you, which means that you need to get rid of it. Accordingly, first of all, you must discuss this issue with the owners. Can their things be thrown away? Everything, only a part, any specific? If the owners of the apartment gave you freedom of action, then decisively get rid of everything that is not useful to you. These are, for example, crumbling furniture, an old tricycle, a worn-out fur coat or Soviet toys. If you didn't manage to agree with the owners, feel free to hide all the unwanted stuff to hell: in boxes, suitcases, packages and boxes. Put them, in turn, in the closet, on the mezzanine, on the balcony, or at least under the bed. Get rid of dirt too - it's just as important. Spend a few hours on intensive cleaning: wash windows, floors and even walls, peel the tile in the bathroom and shake out the old carpet. Vacuum, dust the dust everywhere, even in places that everyone safely forgets: for example, on a chandelier or the lowest chest shelf. This alone will make any apartment cozy and presentable. Step two:rearranging The apartment has the owner's furniture, and is it exactly what you plan to use at least for the first time? Okay, then it's time to tidy it up and move it a little. Apartment owners rarely think about a beautiful arrangement of furniture, especially if they do not live in a rented area, so the chances of meeting a standard symmetrical arrangement are quite high. Why is he bad? Yes, in general, nothing, except that it is not interesting and often has little functionality. So feel free to rearrange the furniture you received for use, but do it wisely. Remember that there should be a wide aisle between the sofa and the armchair, and the work table should be positioned so that natural light falls from the left. Our opinion:- Combine the relocation process with the restoration of old furniture. Paint a wardrobe or coffee table white, buy beautiful covers for old chairs, and lay out a scratched tabletop with mosaics or glue it with a special wood-like film. Another surefire way to give your furniture a fresh look is to replace the handles. And if even this does not help and the chest of drawers looks shabby, cover it with a napkin or decorate with textiles. While doing the rearrangement, pay attention to what resources are hidden by the apartment you inherited, and use them to organize storage. Is there a niche in the walls? Nail some shelves and turn it into a shelving unit. Is there a bike left from the owners that you can't hide anywhere? His new place is on the wall. Let the space under the bed become a haven for all kinds of boxes and boxes. High ceilings allow you to hang cabinets or shelves on the wall, and the missing coffee table replaces a vintage chest in which you can also hide things. Step three:buying It is impossible to predict with certainty how much time you will spend in a rented apartment, so at first we only buy what is needed. First of all, the most necessary furniture. If you got an empty (or half-empty) apartment, then first we buy a bed, a dining table and a couple of chairs, plus a minimal set and a beautiful set of bed linen. When buying furniture, give preference to simple structures, ideally folding or prefabricated models, so that later you do not give your favorite table to new residents, but take it away without much hassle with you. Having dealt with the essentials,let's move on to emergency assistance to create coziness. Buy as soon as possible: new beautiful curtains, a couple of living plants, bright sofa cushions and a blanket, a cool carpet, additional and a couple of floor hangers if the apartment does not have a closet or space for it. Step four:decorating Here we come to the final stage. The rooms are cleaned, the necessary furniture is bought or put in order - all that remains is to make the apartment as soon as possible your home, albeit a temporary one. To do this, do the decor: hang paintings and photographs on the walls, make a mood or inspiration board, hang several mirrors in different rooms, arrange books artistically. Nail an unusual hook or full-fledged art object onto the wall to hang your jewelry on, and buy some local fixtures. If the owners are against major repairs, andThe state of the walls and floor leaves much to be desired, manifest imagination and mask imperfections with a simple decor. So, scratches on the floor can easily be hidden with a carpet, furniture or soft stuff. Distract attention from uneven walls or ugly wallpaper with the help of large posters, cute garlands, slate boards or vinyl stickers that are easy to glue and visibly enliven the interior. An old or simply not very attractive outwardly bed can be covered with a light canopy. Our opinion: - Comfort is formed not only from a beautiful picture. Involve and other feelings, especially sense of smell and touch. Buy scented candles or incense and arrange on the windowsills, let them burn and fill the apartment with a pleasant smell. Also pay attention to the texture: adding soft fabrics, a warm plaid and a fluffy carpet to the environment, you will immediately feel at home.
