How to Decorate Without Risking your Security Deposit

  |     |   Apartment Living

When you move into your new apartment, you want your home to feel like your own personal space. You spend a substantial amount of time at home, so why not make your apartment a decorative showcase that you can thoroughly enjoy? 

Before you start decorating, it’s important to consider how to decorate while maximizing your security deposit refund. Here are some fun and temporary ideas to make your home feel like your home. 

Removable Decals
To breathe some visually impactful life into a room, consider incorporating removable wall decals into your décor. Unlike screws and nails, decals are temporary and removeable when you move out or if you just change your mind and want something different. Vinyl wall art can make stylish décor simple because it’s easy to use, while quickly and substantially enhancing the interior of your apartment. 
 
Rugs, Rugs, Rugs
When making your apartment your home, don’t forget you can decorate the floor using rugs. A colorful rug can have a huge impact on the overall look of the place by incorporating color and defining living areas. In addition, using rugs can actually help maximize the amount of your deposit you can get back since they protect the floor from damage. 

Lighting
You can enhance the warmth and atmosphere of your apartment by incorporating additional lighting. In addition to the recent blog we shared about How to Achieve the Perfect Lighting in Your Apartment, there are more things you can do. Some well-placed battery-operated candles can go a long way toward setting the moods you desire. Another fun alternative is to introduce a light projector so you can have stars dance across your ceiling for some enchanted evenings. Both additions require very little work and are non-permanent solutions that you can move around to different rooms as you desire, and neither of them will affect your security deposit. 

Floral Fever
One of the best ways to add flair to your apartment is to display some flowers. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, but they play on the other senses such as smell and touch. Flowers can be changed as often as you desire and can match the season, vibes, and color schemes. 
 
Fortunately, there’s no shortage of creative ways to decorate your cool apartment without making any permanent changes. By adopting any of the temporary decorating tips, you can keep your apartment looking fresh and updated while maximizing your security deposit refund.
