Simple Tips to Spruce Up Your Apartment
Get Some Rugs
One of the most overlooked home decor tools is a simple rug. Think about it this way — rugs are available in a wide variety of colors, shapes, and patterns. In other words, they offer pretty much limitless abilities to make a room feel like it belongs to you. No matter your favorite type of design or the colors you enjoy having in your living space, a room offers a quick and easy way to help transform the entire feel of a room, making it one of the best ways to make your apartment feel like it’s truly unique to you.
Corral Your Items
Do you have a collection of items? Pull them all together and make them an intentional part of the aesthetic of your apartment. For example, if you have a cool collection of vinyl records, put them on display and make them a focal point in your living room! Do you like action figures? Display them with pride!
Similarly, you could even corral similar items together onto a serving tray and place it in an appropriate space. One idea is to put soap, hand towels, cotton balls, and lotion onto a tray and set it next to the bathroom sink. The possibilities are endless!
Open the Windows
Simple, easy, and free, opening the blinds on your windows can make your apartment feel like it’s a completely different space. Admittedly, this is a bit of a challenge to do in the middle of winter because the days are impossibly short. If you can find a time when you’re at home and it’s light out, simply letting some light in can provide your apartment with something that’s out of the ordinary.
Grab a Few Mirrors
A trick that interior designers have been using since probably the beginning of time is to add mirrors to your living space. Not only does this help to make a space feel bigger, but it also reflects light, making your apartment feel much brighter. Our advice is to avoid putting mirrors on walls opposite of windows, instead opting to put them adjacent to the windows. Don’t want to hang the mirror on the wall? That’s probably a good idea in an apartment. The good news is that it’s on trend to lean your mirror up against the wall.
Pick Up Plants
Probably the easiest way to spruce up any living space is to add plants. Whether it’s a beautiful fiddle leaf fig in the corner of your living room or an assortment of succulents in the bedroom, having a bit of nature on display in your apartment is a great way to make it feel cozier. We can’t say exactly what it is about plants that make a living space feel that much more inviting, but if you don’t believe us, give it a try and see for yourself.
If you don’t have a green thumb, don’t despair. Succulents are available in a variety of different species and they require very little water to thrive. Bamboo plants are just the opposite, needing plenty of water (which means that you can’t accidentally kill them by giving them too much water). At the end of the day, the takeaway should be that no matter your visual preferences or level of plant expertise, there’s a plant that will look great in your apartment.
