With these tips in mind, it is time for students to start thinking about how they’re going to decorate their university student apartments! From choosing the right color scheme to adding wall art, the following five tips will help you decorate to impress!

Here are our top 5 decorating tips for university student apartments at UTK.

1. Pick the Perfect Color Scheme

Start with basic colors, black, white, or brown, which can complement any style apartment. These basic colors can be used to pick out new throw pillows, wall hangings, or other subtle decorations. Next, move on to a few splashes of a more vibrant color, such as red, blue, or yellow. The brighter colors work well to offset basic color choices. For example, choosing a brightly colored duvet can transform your bedroom into a vibrant living space. By working with a fresh palette, you can quickly transform your old look into a new style.

2. Step Up Your Rug Decor Game

Do you want to know the easiest way to pull together a room? Add in a fantastic area rug that plays off of your chosen color scheme! A rug can complement the furniture, walls, lighting, or even the wall accessories in a room. Not only will the rug help to tie your room together, but it will also make your university student apartment feel like home. Whether you choose to use a rug of a subtle hue, or one that makes a splash, a rug is a must have decorating feature for any University of Tennessee, Knoxville, student.

3. Rearrange the Furniture

Throw your local Knoxville off campus housing a curve ball by rearranging your apartment’s furniture. When you move the furniture around, you can instantaneously change the feel of the room.

4. Say Hello to Pinterest Crafts

Decorating to impress means that you can afford to be a little creative with your DIY tasks. Try making your own curtains, piecing together a neat magazine rack, or learning how to create one of a kind picture frames. Whatever you choose to make, remember that it should be uniquely you; so, go ahead and add your own personal spin to any DIY craft.

5. Wall Decor is the Final Step

The final step in transforming an off campus apartment into your own space, is to pull it all together with your wall decor. A few trend setting pieces that are sure to make your space pop, include: large clocks, mirrors, fun artwork, and picture collages. However, before you begin to put a thousand holes into your new apartment’s walls, make sure that you ask your local Knoxville office supply store what hanging accessories are least likely to damage the walls.
