Giving Your Apartment a Makeover Without Painting

Looking for an apartment refresh?

Platinum Realty and Management has several great ways to makeover your apartment without reaching for a can of paint!


Decorate with Drapes

Refresh your windows by dressing them up! Try lightweight curtains that incorporate the neutral tones of the room in a bold, colourful design, and project colour on your walls when you use colourful sheer curtains as a base. For a dramatic effect, use floor to ceiling curtains in a bold colour.


Add some Art

Using art is one of the easiest ways to change the look of a room. With a variety of great inventions, renters can safely hang art without leaving holes or residue on the walls. Command 3M Hooks come in a variety of sizes and options that will let you hang any size art you'd like. Go for bold pieces that will create a focal point, or create a collage of smaller art in varying coordinating colours. Flea markets are a great place to shop for unique and inspiring art at affordable prices.


Get Wild with Washi

Not in love with your cupboards? Give them a makeover with washi tape. Washi tape is a traditional Japanese paper that comes in all different colours, patterns, and sizes. Create a pattern on your cupboard doors, or just give them a border. Washi tape removes without residue and can be reused again and again. You can even dress up your doors, walls, and mirrors with washi tape!


Freshen up your Furniture

Don't forget your furniture during your apartment makeover! Slipcovers, throws, and colourful pillows are an easy way to change the look of your furnishings. Old dressers, coffee tables, end tables, and bookshelves can be reborn with contact paper. Apply it to the surface only, create a design with strips, or stick it to the backs of the shelves on a bookshelf to add a subtle hint of colour.


If you're ready to express your creativity in a new apartment, Platinum Realty and Management has a variety of suites waiting for your unique style!
