Renting a new apartment comes with many benefits. Amenities such as swimming pools, 24-hour gyms, dog parks, and tennis courts are typically located on site. Moreover, you won’t have to worry about tasks like landscaping because maintenance crew handles all these duties. However, there are some limits to what you are allowed to do to make the apartment feel like your own. You’ll not be allowed to paint or renovate the countertops or flooring. Fortunately, there are other options you can explore when you want to personalize your space. These few ideas will get you started on how to make the new apartment feel like home.
Decorate Each Space at a Time
Moving is overwhelming, and you need to unpack and set up all the rooms. Do not try to do everything at once. Choose one room and focus on making it as comfortable as possible. Decorating each room at a time will offer the best results and prevent extra stress.
Hang Your Favorite Art or Pictures
One of the simplest ways to customize your space is by putting up your favorite posters, photos, prints, and art. Personalize your apartment by placing some family photos or favorite pieces of art.
Spruce up the Windows
Another fast way to improve space is adding curtains. They add privacy, design, and color, in addition to protecting you from outdoor elements.
Bring in the Outdoors
To add life and color to your apartment, consider getting some simple potted plants. You may choose to go for live plants or fake flowers –both options will decorate your living space.
Make It Smell Nice
Each home has its smell, and your new apartment could be having a strange one. Consider lighting some incense or candles, prepare a meal or bake your favorite treat. Making your apartment smell pleasant is an excellent way to feel comfortable in your home.
