You’ve found the perfect apartment – it’s close to work and your favorite restaurants, it has a lovely view and community features you’ve always wanted, and the floor plan fits you exactly. It’s perfect! But it’s also a blank canvas – plain and just not really “you” yet… Never fear! There are countless ways to upgrade your apartment so that it truly reflects your style. Try out these fun ideas:
Plants and Planters Plants are a wonderful accent to any apartment and can add atmosphere in minutes. Plants can add a luxury feel to any apartment, bring greenery and color into your apartment, aid in air quality, and help bring the feeling of outdoors inside. But don’t forget the planters! Choosing interesting, unique planters is a great way to bring your personal style into your apartment. By using nursery pots, you can easily change out planters without the mess of replanting.
Removable Backsplash or Wallpaper Removable wallpaper and backsplash is a game-changer when it comes to apartment living. Whether you want to add a splash of color, introduce patterns, or create an accent wall, removable wallpaper offers endless possibilities. The best part? When it’s time to move or change up your decor, it can be peeled off effortlessly without leaving any residue or damaging the underlying surface. This makes it a perfect choice for renters or those who like to refresh their space frequently. With removable wall accents, you can unleash your creativity, experiment with different styles, and personalize your living environment, all while enjoying the flexibility and convenience it provides.
Update Hardware As long as you save your old hardware, you can change nearly any hardware in your apartment! Change your drawer pulls for your kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities, swap out your light switch covers for metal or wood, replace ugly light fixtures with models more to your taste, update your doorknobs, vent covers, blinds, toilet seat… you can even replace your kitchen faucet! Just remember to keep the old hardware so that you can replace it if you move.
Designer Rugs Rugs are a great way to protect your apartment’s floors (and your security deposit)! Rugs are a great way to add personal style to your home. Large area rugs can completely transform a room, add comfort when walking, and can help create “zones” in an open floor plan. Small rugs can be used to add pops of color and interest and are an affordable design option. In addition to adding style and comfort to your living space, rugs are easy to clean and can be swapped out seasonally or if you redesign your apartment in the future.
Plugin LED Lighting There is a wide variety of LED strip lighting available that plugs into your receptacle and sticks to walls and other surfaces. Many options offer multiple colors and remote control switches! Put some under your kitchen cabinets to create more light when you cook. Stick a strip on the back of your TV or entertainment center for a cool, modern backlit look, or tape them to your bedroom headboard as mood lighting.
The best part of apartment decoration is that it is intended to be temporary, so if you change your mind, you can change your apartment, too! With a little creativity, you can make your apartment look like the apartment of your dreams.
