How to Make Your Apartment Comfortable and Cozy

Utilize Texture

One of the best things you can do in any living space is to think about the textures that you’re using. This isn’t something that is immediately obvious to most people, but when you think about living spaces that you feel are comfortable there’s a good chance that they’re ones that are using texture in a really great way.

For example, items like wool blankets, soft rugs, and wood accents are all quite different, but they all lend an air of cozy sophistication to a space. For many the idea of adding a blanket to the back of the couch or a decorative wooden ottoman might seem superfluous. These items aren’t strictly necessary, and therefore they’re not something to spend money on, right? At the end of the day, the decision is up to you, but keep in mind that details are key.

As with most things in life, it’s the little things that go a long way. What seems unnecessary to some creates atmosphere for others. Think about the atmosphere you’d like to create, consider what makes other spaces comfortable, and go from there.

Think About Light

What’s the lighting situation like in your apartment? Whether you use the overhead lights, the natural light from the windows, or a few table lamps to light your space, it’s important to think about the mood you want to create.

Not all light bulbs are the same, and it’s important to think about their role in your apartment. Do you need plenty of bright light to work on crafts at the coffee table or do you prefer softer light that allows you to curl up on the couch with a good book?

Generally speaking, apartments should have about five different light sources in any given common space. These can include ceiling lights, floor lamps, candles, windows, table lamps, and more. They should also be at different heights for maximum effect.

Make It Personal

The thing that’s probably easiest (but also often takes the longest to do) is to start personalizing your space. Hang art on the fridge with magnets, lean a favorite painting against your bedroom wall, or arrange your favorite side table in an easily viewable position.

There are about a million different things a person can do to make a space feel like their own, so feel free to look on the internet and in magazines to get inspiration. Try to pick out which things make you like a room and focus on the small details.

At the end of the day the best apartments are the ones that don’t necessarily play by the rules, so if there’s something you like and that makes you feel cozy (and doesn’t violate the terms of your lease, of course!), then go for it!
