Planning your décor with a flatmate

After you shift in with a new flatmates or have a new flatmate shift in, decor is probably one area none of you bother to dwell much upon. Yet, both of you have preferences. There might be times when he or she may want her book collection displayed in the shelf in the living area while you had already ear-marked to keep your toy car collection. While first-cum-first-serve is barely the adult thing to do, we often don’t coordinate on decor with our flatmates. We just assume one of us will step back and let the other one go ahead. This may be the ultimate way to do it but doing it without openly discussing is not a healthy way to start your stay with another human being. Follow these simple hacks for coordinating your apartment decor with your flatmate.
Openly discussing who gets what spot to display their items in the common is a great way of dispelling any hard feelings. If there is a paint job to be done, then be sure to discuss it with your flatmate since both of you have to live in the apartment. If have certain reservations against your flatmate’s new neon pop-art poster then be sure to say it so that he or she is aware of it.
If your flatmate walks in with a minion lamp that sings silent night, appreciate it and compliment it. Add your happy meal minion collection to it to create an envious minion corner table decor. If both of you have common areas of interest, work it to bring the best decor in your apartment.
Deciding your apartment decor together is a tiring job which will require compromises and adjustments. Also remember that what your flatmate puts up on his or her wall is none of your business but the fancy telephone that look like lips, placed on the kitchen can always be questioned.
