Before beginning any decorating job, you must think about the available space you have to decorate in. Youll want to measure out the space and write it down. Then you will want to create a basic floor plan on a sheet of paper with the measurements on there. That way you know what fits where before you move it.

Amenities of a hotel - Traveling business professionals are always on the go, and the last thing you want to do when you are away from home is to clean another kitchen or bathroom. However, if you stayed in a short-term apartment, you would never have to worry about cleaning. Housekeeping services is one of the many amenities of a temporary apartment. Not only is cleaning marked off the list, but having to remember to pay your utility bills is as well. When you stay in a corporate apartment utilities are included with your monthly bill. Take your pet with you - You no longer have to feel guilty leaving your pet behind in a boarding facility when you travel. Bring them with you to experience a new location! Generally, corporate apartments allow most pets to stay with you as well as offering pet beds, bowls, snacks, toys and maps of local walking areas. There is also a list provided specifying local trainers, veterinarians, and dog groomers to help keep your pet clean and healthy. Stay fit and healthy - Does your location not have a nearby gym where you have a membership? Dont worry, if you stay in a short-term apartment, fitness facilities are available to you at no extra cost. Some facilities offer yoga mats, equipment, and personal trainers. You can also stay away from that greasy fast food, and cook healthy meals for yourself in the fully equipped kitchen. Entertainment and home office equipment - Enjoy a combination of work and play with the provisions supplied to you when you stay at a furnished apartment. Watch movies with video on demand, listen to some tunes through an iPod docking station or just cozy up on the couch and enjoy your favorite television programs. If you have work to do, take advantage of any free Wi-Fi that is offered and go anywhere within your apartment to check work email.

An excellent way to establish a floor plan is on graph paper, allowing each 1/4 inch on the paper to equal 1 feet in the actual room. Draw the room to scale and indicate the exact size and location of all doors, windows radiators, air conditioners and door swinging radius. Measure each piece of furniture in the room with a tape. Carefully plot the measurements on construction paper or on heavy cardboad, using the same scale that you used for the floor plan. Label and cut out the drawings; then move around the floor plan until you get an arrangement that uses your space and furniture to best advantage. With your graph-paper plan in hand, youll be able to note areas of waste space where you could place a closet, a storage piece, a bookcase, a cupboard or display shelves to display your achievements and awards. Next, you should distribute your furniture carefully. Place the largest pieces - an armoire or a breakfront, for instance - on the longest wall. To save space, keep all large units parallel to walls and avoid placing a piece catercorner. Avoid a jumbled look by keeping all the taller furniture at about the same height. The tops of chests, breakfronts and bookcases should maintain more or less the same line around the room.

The easiest way to solve this problem is through the use of a floor plan. This will help you to get an idea of how the furniture in question will look in the context of everything around it. One of my favorite tools to accomplish this task is a free piece of software called Google Sketchup. The advantage to using software instead of a paper and pencil is that the computer model will be much faster to build and edit provided you take the time to learn how to use the program properly. After you install this program, plan on spending about one hour going through the basic tutorial thats include. Remember, its much smarter to spend one hour learning to use a program followed by half an hour building your model than it is to spend three hours fighting with a poorly constructed model. If youre planning on doing three-dimensional work, I highly recommend that you go through the entire tutorial, which should take around two and a half hours. Thankfully, its quite easy to grasp due to the high quality of the included documentation.

Once you have the floor plan done you are ready to go out and shop for the materials. If you are looking to save money then most people will tell you to go to Walmart. However, I have found local hardware stores to be the same price and offer a wider selection and thats where I go for materials. Where ever you go just make sure you dont forget to take your floor plan with you.
