ways update furniture clv group blog featured image

Being a resident at a CLV Group apartment means you’re starting off your apartment décor with a blank slate. Luckily, we’ve put together a list of ways to update some of those not so modern furniture pieces you may have hanging around!

1. Drawer Handles

A simple swap of handles can make a big change to old furniture pieces. Depending on the style of furniture piece you are working with, try adding a handle that stands out or adds a different element to the piece. As an example, add a modern handle to a traditional style drawer.

2. Bookshelves

Add a fun patterned wallpaper or paint the back surface of your bookshelf. This will help to add a pop of colour or texture to your space without being a prominent feature.

3. Lampshades

Have an old lamp hanging around? Replace the lampshade with a more modern or stylish covering. If you want to go an extra step, you could spray paint the base to create a whole new look!

4. Chairs + Couches

Take an old chair or couch and refresh it with a new fabric in a new pattern or colour – creating a modern twist on a classic style.

5. Curtain Rods

Grab a can of spray paint and add a new finish to your old curtain rod – you’d be surprised at what a quick layer of paint can do!

6. Legs to Shelves

Add feet or wheels to a floor sitting shelving unit or table to create a unique piece and add some height. This also makes the unit easier to move around!

7. Curtains

Have a pair of plain curtains? Add a colour or pattern trim to freshen up the look and create a bigger impact than those plain white ones.
