Decorating your Accra Apartment




When you rent a new apartment or house in Accra, its character, shape, size and overall flow are always different. The houses and apartments for rent in Ghana are uniquely historical, colonial, industrial and modern all scattered about and interspersed in various areas. So when you move from one place to another, it becomes important to learn how to re-decorate and re-purpose items on a budget or for minimal investment.

Whether you want to buy all new furniture for your new apartment, or you want to use what you have, yet make it look like you chose it expertly for the space you’re in, we’ve found a few key decorating and furniture arrangement guidelines to help.




Find Each Room’s Purpose and Focus


Before you begin, decide how you want each room used and how often. Where will the focal point be? Before you can place furniture and store items in strategic locations, you have to know how your space will be used and what area or feature of the room you want to be featured. To make your view the focal point of the room, you would arrange each piece of furniture in the room so that its occupant can see the view from one angle or another. Each of these seats will also want a place to set a drink, like a coffee table or an end table. By focusing on how each room will be used, you can then choose where to place your pieces of furniture and decor more usefully and tastefully.


Create an Intimate Setting for Social Spaces


Speaking of inviting rooms, pulling furniture out from the walls, even just a few inches, can also create more intimate social spaces. By creating space between your walls and furniture, you give your home a more cozy feeling. However, the spacing is crucial here. You do not want to cut off the flow of the walkways in your room to put a gap between your walls and furniture. Floating the furniture just a few inches from the wall can create this same effect, but ensure you never cut out the natural flow of movement.






Place Proportions Appropriately


Too many large objects in a small setting make any space feel cramped. And too many small objects in large space has just the opposite effect. The trick to proportions is to mix them up. By choosing pieces of varying proportions, no matter what kind of future place you live in, you will have a space that will work with it. Ideally, you would choose objects that fit your new Boston apartment specifically.


Plan Before You Purchase


Lastly, if you are getting ready to buy something new, plan where you are going to put it first. Do you need it? Where will it go and how will it tie into your space? Many often fall prey to the click bait of lightning deals or that cute little end table they saw in a store that they just had to have. And many of those same people often meet with bitter disappointment when they realize it doesn’t even fit anywhere. Luckily for those people, they have this blog post to help them FIND a place for it. It is cute, right? It will fit somewhere.
