Décor Tips for Apartment Living

Space might be limited in your apartment, but that’s no excuse for it to lack character. One of the first things you should do after you get all of your things moved in is decorating and making your new apartment feel like home!

Repurpose Furniture

The best way to get a unique piece of furniture for your apartment is to make it yourself. Not only is the finished piece truly one-of-a-kind and meant just for your apartment, but it is also going to be tremendous fun creating your new furniture! The thrift store is one of the best places to find furniture to repurpose your apartment for really cheap. Some furniture pieces you may consider updating with repurposed furniture include your bed frame, picture frames, coffee tables, and more!

Use Mirrors to Create Depth

Mirrors are useful for more than just making sure you look good before heading out the door. You can creatively place mirrors throughout your apartment to add depth to any room or see the TV from the kitchen; it’s up to you!

Brighten Up Your Apartment with Plants

Bringing some plants into your apartment is going to do wonders for your home. Plants bring life to any room and help to clean the air at the same time! When searching for the perfect plant for your apartment, look for ones that will do well in the amount of light you have available and ones that don’t require too intensive care. Succulents like aloe or a cactus are great options for first-time plant parents.

Choose a Light Theme

Choosing a light theme for your apartment will stretch your natural light a lot further and even make you feel a little brighter. Colors like white, pale blue and light yellow are great choices to give you a fresh or energetic feeling. Use dark colors sparingly to accent certain things or draw eyes to one area of a room.

Don’t Go Overboard

There is a fine line between not enough and too much décor in your apartment. Aim for simplicity, and you should be alright. One thing to consider is how dense your décor is. If you find much of your décor is in one area of your apartment, try spreading it more evenly throughout; this will help you carry your theme through your space and avoid having too much décor that ends up looking like clutter.

Declutter Regularly

Everyone accumulates clutter over time, and when you live in an apartment where space is limited, you tend to notice how much you accumulate a lot sooner. You should declutter regularly to avoid stuffing too much in your apartment and be overwhelmed when it is time to move. Scheduling one day a week to clean and declutter is a good idea to help make it a habit. If you want to break it up over the week, maybe try decluttering one area of your apartment each day of the week.
