How to Turn a Car Into a Moving Advertisement

Advertising on cars has been shown to be quite cost effective. An ad placed on a car that travels busy city roads can be seen by up to 70,000 people a day, thereby reaching more people at lower cost than billboards, radio, direct mail, or mass transit ads. These ads work so well that businesses will sometimes pay $200 a month or more for you to put them on your car. In addition, they are an effective and inexpensive way to advertise your own business. If you plan your route and design your ads carefully, you will maximize their impact.

Method 1. Advertising Your Business on Your Car

1. Choose the form of advertising you will use. Ads you can put on your car range from relatively unobtrusive license plate frames or bumper stickers to eye-catching car wraps or roof toppers. Generally, the more you pay, the bolder your ad will be. Ask yourself what you are trying to accomplish. A simple bumper sticker is often all you need to let people know what your business is about. Modest advertisements tend to work better with an older audience. However, if you’re trying to build a brand with younger audiences, a car wrap might be the way to go.

  • License Plates: You can get a promotional license plate for the front of your car, if you live in the U.S. in one of the 19 states that don’t require front plates. You can also get a vanity plate that references your business. Ones that take a moment to decipher will garner attention, like MR 2TH for a dentist, 1099 for a CPA, or BUYLOW for a stockbroker. A vanity plate paired with a custom license plate frame can be an effective advertisement. License Plate Frames: Custom printed frames start as low as $1. Give them away to your friends and clients in order to multiply your advertising reach. For around $50 you can get a digital LED frame if you want to attract attention and also change your message from time to time.
  • Bumper Stickers: It costs only around $10 to print a bumper sticker, though you may want to consider hiring an artist for the design, thus increasing the cost. If you order in bulk, you can get big discounts. 1,000 stickers may cost between $600 and $700.  Then you can turn the cars of friends and customers into moving advertisements, too.
  • Magnets: These can provide larger, more complex ads with the added bonus that they can be easily removed for times when you don’t want to advertise (like when driving your car on a date). You can use your company logo, or hire an artist to design an eye-catching magnet.
  • Decals: Like magnets, decals are an inexpensive way to create larger ads. While they cannot be easily removed like magnets, they can be placed on windows.
  • Roof-Toppers: A simple, illuminated box with printing starts around $150, or you can go all out and get a video roof-topper starting around $1300.
  • Car Wraps: Wraps are eye-catching, but they are also the most expensive form of advertisement for your car, costing between $500 and $5,000, depending on the materials used and the extent of the wrap (quarter, half, or full). A high-quality wrap will save you money in the long run, as cheap wraps last no more than about three years. Better-quality, solvent-based print with a good, protective overlaminate can last up to eight years.

2. Set aside a marketing budget. This will determine the type of ad – license plate frame, bumper sticker, magnet, wrap, etc. – and the amount you spend on the design. Custom license plate frames can be purchased for as little as $1, while a full car-wrap will cost $2500 or more.

  • License Plates: Promotional plates cost as little as $5. Vanity plates range from $10 to $195, depending on your locality. Consult your local DMV.
  • License Plate Frames: These start as low as $1. LED frames with customizable messages start at $50.
  • Bumper Stickers: These cost $5 to $10 per sticker, depending on how many you order. custom mlb stickers
  • Magnets: They start at about $10 per square foot.
  • Decals: Start at $10 to $25 per square foot.
  • Roof Toppers: Cost around $150 for a basic roof topper. Video toppers are $1300 and up.
  • Car Wraps: $500 to $5000, depending on the vendor, the quality of the job and extent of the wrap.
    • Back Window: $100 to $130.
    • Half wrap, compact car: $1100 to $1300.
    • Half wrap, SUV:$1300 to $1500.
    • Half wrap, van: $1400 to $1600.
    • Full wrap, compact car: $2200 to $2500.
    • Full wrap, SUV: $2600 to $3000.
    • Full wrap, van: $2800 to $3200.
    • Roof wrap: add $350 to $450.

3. Find your target audience. Think about your product and what type of audience you want to target with your ad space, then plan your ad and your commute accordingly. For instance, a flashier ad might be appropriate for younger audiences, while you might opt for something more traditional if you are aiming at an older market.custom mlb stickers

4. Plan your route.

  • Drive through well-off, suburban neighborhoods if you’re advertising home improvement goods.
  • Drive through dense business districts (generally downtown) if you’re promoting professional goods or services, such as office furniture, office cleaning, accounting services, etc.
  • If you’re a plumber or electrician, consider driving past places that attract contractors such as Lowe’s, Home Depot, and construction sites.
  • Create modern, bold ads for computer services or electronics.
  • A more traditional look might be appropriate for businesses that wish to emphasize stability and experience, like accountants or contractors.

5. Design the advertisement. For decals, magnets, license plates, and wraps, consider hiring an artist if you want to achieve an impressive graphic-art design. Most companies that print advertisements may have someone to help guide you through the design process. You want an effective, eye-popping, attention-grabbing, colorful graphic that conveys the identity or message of the business you’re advertising. Make sure to share your budget with the printer company in order to maximize your options and still stay under budget.

  • List your company or product. Make sure that every driver, no matter how briefly they see your car, will be able to tell what your advertised product is. Make the letters large and bold.
  • List a website or phone number to contact. Often cars will drive by too quickly to see more than a product name and a website to visit for more information. Make sure that if they want to web-search for your product when they get home, they will know what they’re looking for. A phone number makes it easier for customers to reach you without having to go online or write down information.
  • Draw attention to your car. Use graphics, colors and/or text to grab customers. A dark background with lighter letters is easiest to read. Using a different color can help draw attention to important information like your phone number or web address.
  • Consider the type of car you use. An ad on a VW bug or a vintage car will get more attention than an ad on a white van. Painting your car bright colors will draw attention.

6. Plan a commute that targets your market. If you are advertising tech gadgets or tutoring services, swinging by a college campus is a good idea. If you have a family-oriented business, try to drive past grocery stores and family restaurants.

  • Stick to busy streets with lots of traffic.
  • Stop lights and traffic jams are your friends, as they will give the drivers around you more time to look at your signs.

7. Be sure the car advertisement you choose is legal.

  • Many states regulate tinting on side or rear windows, meaning placing a wrap over them might get you a ticket.
  • Some cities (San Francisco, for one) regulate moving advertisements.
  • If you live somewhere with a Homeowners Association, it may have rules preventing you from parking on your street or in your driveway if your car is covered with advertisements.
  • In some states using your car as an advertisement will mean you have to re-register it as a commercial vehicle and acquire additional insurance. Check with your city hall and DMV before wrapping your car.
Method 2. Wrapping Your Car for Another Company

1. Determine your eligibility. Paid-to-drive programs have become less popular recently because of increased gas prices and the rise of Internet advertising. Companies are now more selective in wrapping cars. The best candidates drive newer vehicles long distances through populated areas during busy traffic hours, ensuring maximum exposure. To improve your chances of being hired, you’ll need to:

  • Drive 1,000 miles (1,600 km) per month.
  • Commute through areas relevant to the advertiser’s market.
  • Complete an interview and pass a background check.
  • Drive a car with lots of ad space such as SUVs, vans, and VW beetles.
  • Have a car with GPS so the company can monitor your movement.

2. Find the right car-wrapping company. Search for advertising companies in your area via the Internet or the Yellow Pages. Ask about any partnerships they have with local businesses. Read the proposed contract carefully. Most importantly, make sure that the company legitimately advertises in your area and that it isn’t just a scam.

  • Spot car-wrapping scams. Fraud is on the rise. A common technique scammers use is to send prospective clients a substantial check and then request that a portion of the check be wired back to them to cover the cost of wrapping. The catch is that the check will eventually bounce, but your wire transfer will not. As a rule of thumb, never pay someone money just to get them to pay you. In other words, if the plan sounds convoluted, don’t trust it.
  • Avoid sign-up fees. If an online site claiming to represent a car-wrap advertising company asks you to pay them in order to register, then it is probably a scam.

3. Decide the level of wrapping you are comfortable with. If you’re willing to go all out, order a full wrap. If you wish to retain some autonomy, a half-wrap might be more appropriate. If you just want to dip your toe in the water, aim for a windshield decal or even a modest bumper sticker. The more space you offer, the more you’ll get paid. A full wrap can earn you from $200 to $900 a month,while a bumper sticker might bring in about $5 a month.

4. Be sure the car wrap you opt for is legal. See the information on this topic outlined above.

5. Negotiate your car-wrap deal. Competition for big-name car wrappers is getting stiff. If your car or route isn’t up to their standards, think about local businesses your commute might appeal to instead. If you drive around a college campus, for example, a store that buys and sells textbooks may be just the thing. Put an ad in the paper or on Craigslist describing your car, commute, and monthly mileage to see if anyone else steps forward with an offer.


  • Check with local sign shops before committing to an expensive vehicle wrap. A good one might be pricey, but it might be overpriced if it’s outsourced. Always use a sign shop that has their own solvent printer and experienced installers. Ask to see a portfolio of their work.
  • While the cost of ads for your car is tax deductible, putting ads on your car does not mean you can deduct all expenses related to that car. Only trips made specifically for your business are deductible.


  • Check with local enforcement before pursuing illuminated messaging in the dark. Some states disallow blinking or animated lights. Others will permit only certain colors (perhaps red, white, or amber) to be used inside a moving vehicle. There may also be laws against anything restricting front-window visibility.You can always put illuminated signs in your car when parked or while at shows or expositions to grab attention.

How to Hang Wall Paper over Wood Paneling

Wood Paneling makes a room look comfortable, and is great in a den. However, there is not too much you can do with wood paneling to make the room look different, and after awhile, you get tired of looking at the same walls. Wallpaper will cover the Wood Panel, so start looking for your choice of wallpaper and paste it on your wall, by yourself.

Buy wallpaper that will cover well. Your local supplier sells wallpaper that is made for this purpose. It is thicker and generally has a textured surface to help hide grooves in the underlying paneling. It may have a special adhesive. custom NHL decals stickers

Clean the paneling. Clean cobwebs and dust with a damp, not wet, sponge. Do not use wax- or oil-based cleaners or polishes. If the surface of imitation-wood paneling is peeling, remove all loose strips.

Prepare the paneling. Carefully remove any edge trim, so that it can be replaced after the wall is papered. Remove outlet covers and switch covers. Some people like to fill the paneled grooves with wood putty or spackling. This is not necessary when using the proper paper.

Prime the wood paneling. Special primer is available where you buy wallpaper.custom mlb stickers

Start at the outside corner. Confirm that the corner is vertically square. Use a simple level.Measure the height of wall. Cut first strip of paper slightly longer than necessary. You will trim later.

Wet the adhesive on the back of the paper. With clean water, saturate the adhesive, but not the paper, very damp but not dripping. You can use a specially-purchased tray or your bathtub. Some paperers use a spray bottle of water or a wet sponge. Set the strip of paper, adhesive toward the wall, working from top to bottom, aligning vertically. Smooth the paper to the wall with a dry brush or dry towel. Do not set any wrinkles. Smooth trapped air bubbles to edge of paper to escape. Wet the back of the paper after cutting, apply on the wall as before. Align to first strip. If you cannot get adjoining edges to line up perfectly, it is better to overlap them slightly than to leave a gap between them.

Align the designs. Before cutting second strip of paper, make sure any designs on the paper are matched up. This may mean you will need to leave several inches of waste area so that patterns will match.Trim excess paper when wall is finished. Replace edge trim and outlet covers.


  • Open any outlets or switches that may get covered. You can do this with plastic-covered scissors.
  • Heavy liners are never pre-pasted and will require a standard or heavy-duty pre-mixed adhesive. I recommend using a paint roller to apply the adhesive to the liner. When you roll out a few feet of liner, you will notice a natural tendency for the liner to curl itself back up into a roll. Since there is no apparent “front” and “back” to liner, be sure to apply the adhesive to the side in which it curls. Liner does not require “booking” time like regular wall coverings, so you can pretty much hang a piece of liner right after applying the adhesive. The pre-pasted liners you may find are better suited for covering more minor wall flaws.
  • Technically, there are no wall coverings specifically designed to hang directly on paneling. However, there is a product called “liner” that helps in this situation. It is a thick, plain, felt-like product which is packaged in bolts (double or triple rolls) like most wall coverings. It is usually off-white or cream colored. For use over paneling, the wider your paneling grooves, the thicker the liner should be. Often, this liner must be special ordered as most wall covering retailers will not carry liner in stock – especially a heavy duty liner appropriate for paneling. Once you install liner, you can hang any wall covering you prefer with success.
  • Hang the liner horizontally with your first piece starting at the ceiling and working your way down to the floor. This technique helps eliminate the possibility of a liner seam lining up with a wall covering seam.
  • Once the liner is installed, let it dry at least 24 hours. Then prime the liner with a high quality wall covering primer like “Shieldz Primer”. Don’t skip this step as the liner will absorb your wall covering adhesive and prevent good adhesion between the liner and wall covering. Let the primer dry for 24 hours. Then hang your wall covering as you normally would.


  • When possible, go ahead and shut the power off to the outlets at your circuit breaker box.
  • When opening outlets or switches, be sure not to let your scissors contact the wires, as there is a danger of electrocution. Ensure that all children are out of reach of open outlets.


Things You’ll Need

  • Primer

  • Paint roller

  • Wallpaper to cover wall

  • Water

  • Scissors

  • sharp knife

  • dry brush or towel

  • good cup of coffee to prevent dehydration while working

  • screwdriver to replace outlet covers

  • small pry bar to remove edge trim

  • small hammer to replace edge trim

  • A great work surface for cutting and preparing wall covering can be created by using an inexpensive luan door which can be purchased at home improvement centers. Even if you are a “weekend warrior” the benefits of a good work surface will be realized in a single job. These will typically be about 30″ wide and 84″ long. They are very light. You can use over a few sawhorses or on top of an existing table – just put some scratch/paste protection like a blanket on the base table.

  • Also, no pro hangs wall covering without a good metal straight edge. I use a 4 foot (1.2 m) metal ruler. Use this as a guide on the table to cut your wall covering lengthwise.

  • Single edge razor blades are excellent for cutting. They are very sharp and worth the time and investment to obtain. Although there are blade holders available, I get greater dexterity by simply holding the blade in hand. Buy a box of 100 and discard at about a rate of 1 per single roll of wall covering. Never “saw” at your wall covering. That is a sure sign your blade is dull. Why ruin a full sheet of wall covering over a 5 cent razor blade? This is one of the biggest mistakes beginners make – not using a sharp blade.

  • 12″ smoothing brush – typically with 1/2″ bristles.

  • 6″ joint knife – use this to provide a guide for trimming the wall covering against ceilings and trim. Place the blade into the joint and cut on the ceiling / trim side of the blade for a clean cut.

How to Remove a Sticker from Plastic

Getting stickers off of plastic seems like it should be much easier than it is. But getting glue to stick to plastic is hard to do, leading most manufacturers to use high-strength adhesives to keep labels on. Whether you can’t remove a sticker or want to clean up the residue there are a variety of potential home solutions to try.

Method 1. Removing the Sticker

1. Always test a removing product on a small patch of plastic before using it. Some chemicals will react poorly with certain plastics, causing them to warp or deform. Before committing to any cleaning solution, use a cotton swab to test the chemical on a small, easily hidden piece of the plastic. Wait 20 minutes, and, if there is no reaction, go forward removing the sticker.custom mlb stickers

  • Try and pick off as much of the sticker as possible with your fingernails, the dull edge of a knife, or a razor blade before trying chemical solutions. If the chemical can penetrate the surface of the sticker it will work better.

2. Use a hairdryer on high heat to loosen the adhesive. You only need to blow hot air on the sticker for 45 seconds or so. After you’ve heated the sticker, try and peel off one corner of it. If it is still lodged on, heat it for another 30-45 seconds and try again. If you still have an issue, move on to another solution — the glue is heat-resistant.custom NHL decals stickers

3. Soak the label in cooking oil for 12-24 hours. Canola, vegetable, and other oils will soak into the sticker and loosen the adhesive, making it easier to remove later. If it doesn’t work, try again and then scrape it away lightly with a razor blade.

4. Rub the sticker with lacquer thinner. This hardware-store solution can cut right into the sticker, and it only needs 5-10 minutes to soak in. After you’ve let it soak, scrape up the sticker for an adhesive-free clean up.[4]

  • Some specialty products, like Goo-gone, function similarly.

5. Use a degreaser, like WD40, to wipe away the sticker. Test the WD40 on a patch of the plastic. Then, spray degreaser on a clean cloth or directly on the sticky label or glue residue. Working in a circular motion, from the center out, rub the sticker until it pulls away.

6. Try nail polish remover or rubbing alcohol. Let the liquid soak into the sticker, or apply it liberally to a cloth and scrub away the sticker. The longer the liquid has to react with the sticker, the easier it will be to remove.

7. Wipe over the sticker with a disinfectant wet wipe. Apply some table salt to the sticker to prevent the glue from continually sticking and to help it coagulate into balls. Use as many wipes as necessary to soak and remove the sticker.

8. Rub an eraser over the sticker. Rub until the sticker lifts, then pull it back. You can then rub over any leftover residue to remove it.

Method 2. Removing Leftover Adhesive

1. Wipe peanut butter over the sticker residue. The oils in peanut butter, believe it or not, will break down many adhesives. Let it sit for a few minutes before wiping it off with a sponge and warm, soapy water.

2. Use baking soda and warm water to remove goo. Mix together a paste with the baking powder and a touch of water, then use it to scrub away the adhesive. If it is not coming off, wipe the paste on the adhesive and let it set for several minutes, then return to it.

3. Use rubbing alcohol to lift the adhesive away. Get a carton of isopropyl alcohol, preferably 90%, and use it with an old rag to wipe away the adhesive.

4. Use a rag coated in WD40 to scrub away the leftover glue. Degreasers like WD40 may react with the plastic, causing it to warp or discolor. Be sure to test it out on a small patch of plastic before attacking the goo. When done, be sure to clean the surface with some water and a touch of dish soap.

5. Use nail polish remover to get it off. Make sure that it contains acetone, which is the key ingredient to removing glues. Let it soak for 4-5 minutes then scrub it away with a sponge, moving in small circles.


  • Pull the sticker at a shallow angle relative to the surface. (Opposite to the direction in which you are peeling.) This makes it more likely to come off cleanly.
  • Soak in a mixture of hot water and dish-washing liquid. Scrub with a brush to remove any lingering bits of your removal method, such as WD40
  • Use a toothbrush instead of a cloth for tricky bits of adhesive.


  • Be careful when using nail polish remover, some brands contain acetone, which can melt plastic.
  • Test the degreaser on a hidden part. Degreasers may “melt” some plastics.
  • Almost all of the chemicals mentioned will dissolve soft plastics like those found on three-ring binders.

How to Choose a Style to Decorate

Choosing the interior design for your home is one way to explore your creativity and passions. Planning is an important part of any decorating project. The first step in planning your home interior is to determine the decorating style to use for the rooms in your house. Take the time to explore as many different styles as possible to find the one that fits with your personal taste and the style of your home.custom NHL decals stickers

1. Read decorating magazines to find your favorite design styles. Decorating magazines are a rich source of decorating examples. Browse through the photographs of professionally decorated rooms to find the style that best suits your personal taste.

  • Pay particular attention to the colors and textures used in each decorating style. The colors you find the most appealing can help you determine the style that fits your taste. For example, if you find yourself drawn to neutral shades, you may find you prefer a contemporary or modern interior décor.custom mlb stickers
  • The details of a room décor can help you determine the styles you enjoy the most. For instance, straight clean lines on furnishings point to a modern style, while intricately carved pieces and curved edges point to traditional or Victorian furnishings.

2. Determine the architectural style of the house. That will help you determine the interior design you should choose for the rooms. For example, a Spanish style home can look great with a Mediterranean, Italian or Spanish flavor. If you have a Craftsman style home, Arts and Crafts pieces will complement it perfectly.

  • It isn’t necessary to decorate the interior of a home based on the style or architecture of the house, but it is one method that can help you choose an interior décor you like. Feel free to decorate the interior of your home without regard to the architecture. For example, you don’t have to live in a cottage to decorate with a country cottage interior style. However, the form of the house may limit the range of choices, e.g. small rooms and low ceilings will challenge plans for a grand ballroom.

3. Choose a color palette. Explore different colors to find the combinations that you feel best suit your home. Use swatches of fabrics and paint samples to help you decide what best complements your rooms.

  • Put samples of paint right on the walls to help you choose a color for the room. Don’t be afraid to paint a wide area of the walls with a color. It can be difficult to decide on colors from a small sample card. Live with the color for a little while to determine if it fits with your lifestyle and taste.
  • Compare fabric swatches with paint colors to make sure they complement each other.

Things You’ll Need

  • Decorator Magazines

  • Paint Brush

  • Fabric Swatches

  • Paint Samples

How to Remove Stick On Lettering from a Boat

Removing stick on lettering can get a little difficult at times but there are a few tricks to get that glue to get off your boat.

1. Before you start you do have an easy option: Bring the boat to the company who put the lettering on and have them remove it. This is usually very cheap and convenient if you need new graphics put on anyway.

2. If you don’t want to take the boat to a company, then you can try for yourself. Start with a hair dryer or heat gun. (Be very careful when using a heat gun as they have the power to blister gelcoat.) Heat up the surface of the sticker then while heating the sticker slowly start to peel back the sticker with your nails or a razor blade once you have it started it is best to use your hands and slowly pull while heating what is still sticking this method will leave no sticky residue.custom mlb stickers

3. This way also works but will leave a sticky adhesive residue. Start with a razor blade It is usually best to get the long, skinny razors with extend able blades, but this does depend somewhat on personal preference. The short fat ones work as well. Try slipping the blade under the letters. Most letters you should be able to get off this way. As long as you are careful, you shouldn’t have a problem scratching the fiberglass, but watch what you’re doing with the blade.

4. Of course, even if you get all the letters off with the razor blade there will be a sticky residue. This is an easy problem to solve. A product like mineral spirits, lacquer thinner or a cleaning alcohol on a rag should make the sticky residue rub right off.

5. Spray with GooGone or WD 40, either of these substances will remove almost anything with an adhesive backing.


  • Keep the razor blade parallel to the boat, sliding it between the boat and lettering to avoid scratches
  • Don’t try to do this while the boats in the water, I know this sounds obvious, but you’d be surprised at what some people try to do. Do this while the boat is on a trailer. custom NHL decals stickers


  • Some states require numbers to be displayed in specific ares of your boat. For example, in Florida we have to have FL numbers on the boat. If you take these letters off, don’t take the boat out without putting new ones on. This would be against the law!
  • Make sure any chemicals you use are safe to use on fiberglass. Always read the labels.
  • Skin may be sensitive to alcohol. Avoid skin or eye contact if at all possible
  • Razor blades are EXTREMELY sharp, be careful not to hurt yourself or others.

Things You’ll Need

  • blow dryer or heat gun

  • Razor blade

  • Rag

  • Gloves (optional)

  • mineral spirits, or rubbing alcohol

How to Decorate a Loft Apartment

A loft apartment often describes a large open space without walls or defined rooms. Often, loft apartments are former industrial spaces that have been converted to residences. Challenges in decorating a loft apartment include dividing up the space into usable areas, finding storage, avoiding clutter and creating privacy. Decorate a loft apartment by breaking up the space, using color to your advantage and investing in storage options.

Method 1. Breaking up Loft Space

Look for tracking in the ceilings to hold drapes, panels or other materials that can create space partitions. NBA wall wecals

  • Check for exposed pipes in the ceilings. Lofts that once served as warehouses or industrial spaces often have this type of suspension possibilities.
  • Purchase tracking if it is not already in your ceiling. You can buy ripplefold tracking, which brings a curve to your partitions at upholstery or furniture stores. You can find less expensive tracking options, such as canvas stretchers at art supply or hardware stores.
  • Set up the partitions so they are functional and attractive. You may need to experiment with spacing to get the look and feel you want in your loft.

Place furniture appropriately to create different areas in your loft. For example, create a living room area by placing two sofas or loveseats in an “L” shape.

  • Use large furniture pieces, such as armoires and sectionals to separate living space from sleeping space.
  • Float your furniture instead of backing it up against walls. This will allow all sides of the furniture to be seen, and it makes a loft space seem less wide open and more organized and contained.

Contain each space. Pay attention to what belongs. In order to break off a kitchen space, for example, do not keep the dishes near the bed.

Method 2. Decorating a Loft Apartment with Color 3D look wall stickers

Evaluate your walls. Many loft apartments include exposed brick and other natural elements from their factory or industrial days. Look for spaces where paint is a possibility.

Paint with bold colors. The wall space that is available in a loft apartment should be maximized with color that grabs attention.

  • Use paint to either complement or separate your walls from other surfaces. For example, a slate gray will match modern stainless appliances. If you would rather set the walls apart, try a bright green or a deep orange.

Look for carpets and rugs that add color as well as shape custom NHL decals stickers. Rugs should offer a burst of color to make the loft look interesting and bright.

  • Try rugs that are round or shapes other than rectangles. If your loft apartment is rectangular in shape, a brown rectangular rug will not do much for the space. Try a round rug in red or an oval rug with stripes or patterns.

Choose curtains and shades that offer color. Loft apartments might have long windows, small windows or no windows at all.

  • Stay away from vinyl blinds. Use different colors and textures on your windows and keep the window coverings accessible. Your loft apartment might get too much light at certain times of the day, so you will want to cover the windows occasionally.
Method 3. Finding Storage in a Loft Apartment

Create boundaries for clutter and personal items. Most loft apartments do not have closets, so you will need to be creative and use whatever you do have.

  • Use bookcases to hold more than just books. Stack magazines, baskets of pictures, even items such as shoes and folded sweaters.
  • Take advantage of furniture pieces that can be used for storage and divide up your space. Armoires and trunks are good for this purpose. You can also find bench-type ottomans that open up and hold blankets, sheets, towels and anything else you need.

Shop for storage solutions at discount retailers such as IKEA and The Container Store. You can also take advantage of Craigslist sales, garage sales and thrift stores.

  • Look for budget-friendly items that will fit in your loft space and provide storage. Large bins, bookcases in different sizes and tables, benches or trunks will usually work.

Buy or build shelving to display decorative items glow in the dark wall stickers.


  • Work with a designer if you have the budget. There are artists and decorators who specialize in loft spaces. If you cannot afford a designer, read magazines to get inspiration on decorating your loft apartment.
  • Look at other loft spaces. Before you begin decorating your own, take a look at what others have done to maximize their space and create functional and attractive areas.
