The way an apartment is arranged has a great impact on its functionality, aesthetics, as well as on the well-being of people living there. It is worth to think about the arrangement beforehand in order to create an interior that will please the eye and meet all needs. Read the article to find out what to pay special attention to.

Space organization

First of all, you should make sure that the apartment is functional and ergonomic. You should place furniture and other equipment in such a way that you have convenient access to all the equipment. When arranging the apartment, it is also worth taking into account the directions of the world in order to optimally use natural light – for example arranging the living room on the south side allows you to reduce costs of, among others, heating and electricity

The choice of floors, doors, window frames and window sills is also very important in the arrangement. If you have the opportunity, it is worth ensuring that the window frames and doors are consistent in color and also match the style of the room. For example decorative doors will not work in minimalist and Scandinavian interiors. On the other hand, a beautiful double door model can make even a simple interior gain an elegant and luxurious character. You can find double leaf doors in white, dark anthracite, golden oak, walnut and many other colors on


Furniture has a huge impact on the final effect of the arrangement, so it is worth to think carefully about their purchase and choose models made of high quality materials, such as solid wood. At the beginning it is best to invest only in basic furniture and then gradually buy the rest of the equipment, depending on your needs. It is important to keep proportions, that is why you should choose equipment matching the size of the interior and matching the style you want.

Blinds and roller blinds

An important element that affects how the room looks is also the window coverings in the form of blinds or shutters. Thanks to bright blinds you can quickly protect the interior against excessive sunlight and shield yourself from unwanted neighbors’ eyes. By the way, blinds will play a decorative role and optically enlarge the room. If you like Scandinavian, modern or rustic style, bet on classic and functional white wooden blinds.


The visual side of the room is also affected by the textiles in it – they can add lightness, elegance or create a specific atmosphere. Changing the textiles is a cheap and quick way to change the décor. Choose your furniture upholstery, curtains, and decorative cushions carefully, and make sure they all match in color. Airy, light-softening curtains are recommended for boho interiors, while for elegant interiors choose velvet, velvet of all kinds or shiny, warp-resistant velvet. Check wide selection of fabrics and decorative elements on


Mirrors are an underestimated decorative element. They are necessary for care, but can also optically enlarge the space and – thanks to good placement – provide access to light to poorly lit area of the room. Thanks to the original composition of mirrors on the wall you will illuminate the room and provide your plants with better conditions for development.
