When you move into a new furnished flatshare, once you’ve moved in, you think about decorating.

The room isn’t really a problem since it’s yours: nobody have to bother you, you put the decoration you want there! But the real problem in a shared apartment is the decoration for the common rooms.

Yes, no wonder, but everyone has very different tastes on the subject. Some will be very vintage, others very modern… Some will bet on colors by thousands, others will prefer white and rather light colors… In short the tastes and colors are specific to each!

So how do you decorate the common rooms in your flatshare? Of course you want to avoid conflict with your roommates, at the same time you also want to have your own personal touch! Not very pleasant to live in a flatshare with a decor that scares the hell out of you every time you go in.


We have some tips that might help you…


#1 Agree with your roommates

We agree, if you move into a flatshare, no problem with the furnishings, you are served. No headache at this level! On the other hand, it’s always fun to add a little decorative touch.

Roommate meeting! Determine each one a unique store where you can all go together. Everyone can then suggest his personal touch with the agreement of the assembly. One then avoids imposing one’s style, and especially to commit errors of taste in case all the objects are not in symbiosis.


#2 Think practical!

Once everyone has had time to put their decorative notes into practice. To avoid disagreements during your stay, you must find a way to communicate with your roommates. You’re gonna say, “But we live together.” It’s not always that easy. Some may have very different schedules, and also topics may be difficult to discuss.

Think, on a common agreement, and together (it is always better), to buy a slate painting for example. It will then serve you:



A blackboard!



  • To carry out a planning of household tasks
  • To communicate on a problem of the apartment (Ex: more hot water, the electrician passes to 13h…)
  • To communicate about you (Ex: Not there next weekend!)




These are little tips for a decoration made in harmony with its roommates for a good understanding throughout your cohabitation.

Finally decorating flatshare, it’s not that complicated! You just have to agree with your roommates.
