decor tips dairy ashford apartments

Hey residents! How are you settling in to your new community of apartments on Dairy Ashford? If you’re new to Alexan Ashford, we hope you’re using your first couple days to organize your apartment and style it the way you want to. Your home won’t feel like a home until you’ve given it that personal touch!


That being said, there are a few style rules that you should follow if you want to maximize the space in your home. Living in an apartment is also about taking full advantage of the available floor space, and these rules will help you do just that. There’s a lot to love about the apartment life, and the decor tips below will help you fall in love with your new place as quickly as possible.


Without further delay, let’s dive right into the list of tips below! When you’re done reading through it, please be sure to share the link to this page with your friends and neighbors at your community of Dairy Ashford apartments.


Keep large pieces away from the entrance


When you walk into a room, you want to be able to enjoy a clear visual space. Having a big couch, dresser or entertainment center near the entrance will block that view, and make the room seem smaller than it actually is. Instead of putting your couch right in the front of your room, put it near the back so you have a wide open space to step into as soon as you get in the room. You can thank us later!


Add reflective surfaces


One of the keys to making an apartment seem open and airy is having tons of natural light. It can be hard to get natural light to the corners of your apartment that are away from your windows, but it’s not impossible! To spread natural light to the farthest corners of your apartment, simply add reflective surfaces wherever possible. Hang mirrors on your walls. Put metallic objects on your coffee table. Invest in glass end tables instead of wood ones. Do whatever you have to do to ensure natural light reaches to the farthest corners of your room.


Keep it bright


You might be tempted to turn your apartment into a dark, cozy cave, but that’s a good way to make your space seem smaller than it actually is. Instead of doing that, try keeping it bright and airy instead. Incorporate lighter colors in your rugs, furniture and decor. Texas is almost always sunny, and those bright colors will vibe a lot better with the sun than the dark colors would.
