You’ve found the perfect apartment but now you need to visualize whether it’s the one you want to call home. Will your furniture fit? What wall color will make the apartment feel like yours? Using online tools can really help seal the deal!

Pottery Barn has a great room planner where you can choose from a variety of pre-made room sizes or create your own room with various shapes and dimensions. From there, you can drag and drop your furniture in the room to get a visual of how the apartment will look with all your furniture in it. Pssst, when you tour your favorite Shea Apartment Community, be sure to ask for the floor plan dimension handout to take home before you jump on the Pottery Barn Room Planner.

Ok now you know your furniture fits, but to make an apartment truly yours you need to pimp it with color. Jump on Benjamin-Moore Personal Color Viewer, choose a room and a color collection and you are on your way to finding your perfect wall color!

Whola – your furniture fits and you found a color to make the apartment ‘yours’, it’s time to go sign the lease and move-in. Before you slap your first coat of paint on your apartment walls, check with your management company and make sure your know all the rules and possible fees that come along with painting your walls.
