When moving into a new apartment, you may be tempted to make it your own by applying a fresh coat of paint to the space. However, remember that you will probably be working in a limited space governed by someone else’s rules, so take the time to prepare for your paint job. There are several apartment paint ideas that you can use. For example, paint one wall with a strong color. Paint the other walls with the same color that has been mixed with white to lighten the overall effect of the pigment. Painting a large wall that will be used to display photographs, art, or other decorations while painting the smaller walls, columns or doors the lighter color is an especially interesting decor option.
