HOME DECOR - HOW TO MAKE YOUR APARTMENT YOUR HOME

The term “renting” can make you feel as if your space isn’t your own. But don’t sweat it! The best way to make your apartment your home is to spice it up so it reflects your personality. If you’re not sure where to start, here are a few tips:

  1. When it comes to showcasing your personality, the best place to start is with pictures, posters, and artwork. As you’ve heard a million times, a picture is worth a thousand words, and what you decide to showcase will speak volumes about who you are and what you like. Surround yourself with images that you enjoy, and would be happy to see everyday. Whether you stick to classic photographs of you and loved ones, or you choose to go a little bolder with statement art pieces or funky sculptures, the visuals you display are a great start in making your apartment your home.

  2. Colors can work wonders when it comes to your apartment. When choosing a color scheme, it is important to select colors that are reflective of you. Are you an urbanite who loves the city life? Perhaps try greys, browns, and maroons. Are you one with nature, and enjoy the brightness of the landscape? Try greens, yellows, and beiges. No matter your preferences, put thought into your decision; these colors will set the mood for the lifestyle you’re aiming for.

  3. Lighting plays a huge role in determining the mood of your apartment. Urbanites might prefer something a little more dim; drawing more inspiration from Edison bulbs and modern lighting fixtures. On the opposite end of the spectrum, naturalists might enjoy bright, warm homes; relying heavily on natural lighting and energy efficient bulbs. Again, whatever your predilections may be, lighting is a defining element of your home.

  4. A huge way to express your personality in your home is through furniture. You’ll want to decorate the space with furniture that speaks to you. For some, this means going on the traditional route, and using classic influences to dress your home. For others, this might mean drawing inspiration from modern, funky, or unique influences. Both extremes provide a world of opportunity for those who fall somewhere in the middle. Your furniture will convey a large part of who you are and what you prefer.

  5. Lastly, you’re going to want to add the finishing touches to your home through creative use of accessories. Oh yes, it’s time to accessorize. While this may seem like a small part of the decorating process, the devil is in the details. But don’t stress, the challenge of accessorizing your home is also a fun one! Now’s the time to display those little knick-knacks, trinkets, fake plants, mirrors, rugs, and centerpieces that make you, you! Want to show off your artisan lamp? Go for it. How about that gorgeous ceramic vase? Yep, put it out there. The completion of your home is all about the little things!

So there you have it, the 5 essential elements you need to make your apartment your home. Remember to put thought and effort into designing your space, but most importantly, make sure your home is a reflection of you!
