Easy, Affordable Ways to Decorate and Upgrade Your Apartment

  |     |   Apartment Living

When you rent an apartment, it’s fun to personalize your space and make it your home. It’s wise to start by checking your lease agreement to see what’s permitted and then it’s time to assess what you’d like to do to make your place feel cozy and welcoming. 

The good news is there are lots of temporary decor and upgrade ideas that look amazing. Here are a few ideas to help you get started:  

Edgy Flooring
Even if you have modern flooring, consider adding a few rugs throughout the apartment to give it more dimension and color. This is a clever and inexpensive way to redefine a room with no construction necessary. As an added benefit, rugs can also help you protect the carpet and flooring.
 
Strategic Lighting
Well-chosen lighting can completely transform a space. Not only does it strategically add light where you need it the most, it can also enhance the decor in your apartment in terms of colors and design. In addition, consider switching out light-switch covers with unique designs to help the place truly feel like your home. 
 
Cool Mirrors
Interior designers often include mirrors in their decor schemes because they add light and create the illusion of expanded space. When you lean a tall mirror against the wall, there’s no need to create holes to hang it, and it can add an interesting focal point and even a bit of dramatic flair to any room. 

Clever Storage
Keeping your home decluttered is a perfect way to take ownership of your space and make it an enjoyable place to live. Invest in some affordable, chic storage containers that blend functionality with your favorite aesthetics.
