You just moved into a rented apartment, and herThe state leaves much to be desired and certainly does not cause thoughts about coziness? Do not want to get involved in the unpromising repair of someone else's living space, but the shabby walls do not suit too? We know how to equip a temporary home quickly, simply and efficiently. It's not for nothing that they say that their burden does not pull. Indeed, in his home, old furniture, a worn carpet and a chandelier come from childhood, rather, pleasant memories, which can not be said of a dilapidated sofa in a rented apartment. What here nostalgia! But there is an opinion that it is useless to spend money on repairs and capital renovation of your apartment. But what if the new dwelling is not suitable for a comfortable life? Our answer: as soon as possible, and make it cozy. Will you be in 24 hours? Step one: Throwing out So, you moved into a new apartment and it is full of master's things. Most of them will not be exactly what you need, so you have to get rid of it. Accordingly, first of all you must discuss this matter with the owners. Can I throw out their things? Everything, only a part, any specific? If the owners of the apartment have given you freedom of action, then resolutely get rid of everything that you will not need. This, for example, falling apart furniture, an old tricycle, a kind of fur coat or Soviet toys. If you do not manage to negotiate with the owners, safely hide all the unwanted trash far away: in boxes, suitcases, bags and boxes. They, in turn, clean in the pantry, on the mezzanine, 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: Rearranged The apartment has master furniture, and it is it you plan to use at least the first time? Great, then it's time to put it in order and move it a little. Owners of apartments rarely think about the beautiful arrangement of furniture, especially if they do not live on the rented area, so the chances of meeting the standard symmetrical layout are quite large. Than it is bad? Yes, in general, nothing, except that it is not interesting and often little functional. So safely rearrange the furniture you have used, but do it wisely. Remember, there should be a wide passage between the sofa and the chair, and the desk should stand so that the natural light falls on the left. Our opinion: - Combine the process of rearrangement with the restoration of old furniture. Paint the cupboard or coffee table in white, buy beautiful covers for old chairs, and lay a scratched table top with mosaic or seal with a special film under the tree. Another sure way to give furniture a fresh look is to replace the handles. And if even this does not help and the dresser looks tattered, cover it with a napkin or decorate with textiles. While doing the rearrangement, pay attention to what resources hide the apartment that you have gotten, and use them to organize storage. Is there a niche in the walls? Nail down a few shelves and turn it into a rack. The owners left the bike, which you can not hide anywhere? His new place is on the wall. Space under the bed will become a haven for all kinds of boxes and boxes. High ceilings allow you to hang on the wall lockers or shelves, and the missing coffee table will replace the vintage chest, in which you also hide things. Step Three: We can not predict with certainty how much time you will spend in a rented apartment, so first we buy only the most necessary. In the first place - the most necessary furniture. If you got an empty (or half empty) apartment, then first buy a bed, a dining table and a couple of chairs, plus a minimal set and a nice set of bed linen. When buying furniture, give preference to simple designs, ideally folding or prefabricated models, so as not to give the new table to new tenants afterwards, and take it away without much trouble with yourself. Having dealt with the essentials,Turn to emergency assistance to create comfort. As soon as possible, buy: new beautiful curtains, a couple of living plants, bright cushions and blankets, a classy rug, additional and a pair of floor hangers, if the apartment did not have a closet or a place for it. Step Four: Decorate Here we are at the final stage. The rooms are cleaned, the necessary furniture is bought or put in order - it remains to make the apartment as soon as possible yours, even if temporary, but a house. To do this, deal with the decor: hang on the walls of paintings and photographs, make a board of mood or inspiration, hang a few mirrors in different rooms, decorate the books artistically. Nail on the wall some unusual hook or a full-fledged art object, on which you will hang jewelry, and buy a few local lamps. 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.
