If Chicago has its brownstones and the South its genteel collection of plantation homes, Washington, D.C. is best known for its assortment of row houses. The king of the local real estate, row houses can be found in every neighborhood in the D.C. metro area, coming in a wide variety of colors and sizes. It’s the quintessential D.C. property that just might be your dream home.

Many neighborhoods in D.C. that have row houses have already been designated as historic districts, guaranteeing that these real estate gems will be around for years to come.

How to personalize your D.C. row house

Investing in a row house in Washington, D.C. makes good value for your money. However, one of the challenges often encountered by row house owners is decorating the narrow spaces that’s typical with such home types. We’ve come up with a few tips to help make the space your own.

Repaint – Most row houses don’t come with a lot of space, but you can make the property feel larger by choosing the right color of paint. Neutral tones never fail to open up the space, but if you’re itching for a bright color, go for an accent wall. Just make sure the neutral tone and the bright color you picked complement each other.

Be wise with furniture – With not a lot of space, buying furniture can be a big issue in any row house. You can go minimal with sleek chairs and tables, but you can also go plush with ottomans and armchairs. Just make sure that the size is proportionate to the room.

Add storage – Storage is another issue homeowners have to deal with. Be innovative and find new ways to add storage. You can transform the small space under your staircase steps into a drawer system where you can stash boots and other going-out necessities.
