How to bling out your LeoPalace and make it homey

How to bling out your Leopalace and make it homey – Michelle Tatenda Nyemba

If you are like me and you love your place to feel homey, relaxing and personalized, and you recently moved into a Leopalace, you are probably thinking with the space available and layout, that’s not possible… Well stick with me and I will share a few, affordable tips to bling out your Leopalace.


Leopalace has two kinds of layout, the loft one and the one without the loft. They also usually have a table by the wall. I used to live in the one without the loft but I always visited my friends who had the apartment with the loft. 


Michelle’s Top 5 Tips:

Tip #1 Decide on a color theme for your apartment. Leopalace usually comes with curtains, but they are usually white or grey. Once you decide on the color theme for your apartment, you can start by getting curtains that match the color theme. This makes a huge difference… I promise.


Tip #2 Fold up the table by the corner to create more ground space. This will open up your room and create space for a couch, bin bag or a large vase of flowers.


Tip #3 Nothing personalizes a place better than photos or pictures. Now…., I know you can’t put holes in the walls or you will get billed but you can get a lot of cool stuff to hang photos, pictures and anything for ¥100 ($1) at Daiso, https://www.daiso-sangyo.co.jp/ .


Tip #4 Avoid buying too many things, it only leads to clutter. Less is more….. Before purchasing anything, take a few minutes to visualize and decide if you have space for it and where it will go. Also thinking if you really need the item you intend to purchase.


Tip #5 Be creative! Don’t be scared to try new color combinations and as well as styles. Daiso and Seria have plenty of ¥100 ($1) items that would bling out your apartment on a budget! If you have more money to spare, you can try Nitori https://www.nitori.co.jp/en/index.html
