Your apartment home doesn’t have to be impersonal. What we mean is that your home can feel generic at move-in –and it’s meant to be. However, you might feel intimidated with white walls, neutral colors, and a few decorative touches. Worse, what you’d like to do to liven up your rental home is not allowed by your lease. There are a few easy ways you can add a personal touch to your home, though – and what better time to do this than right now? Check out our ideas below!
Add Some Color
Since your walls cannot be painted, try painting your furniture instead. Adding color to your furnishings can liven up a room and provide a unified look. Add some colorful pillows or throws to your bed or couch and choose area rugs that coordinate with your color theme. You can also hang large tapestries, quilts, or rugs on your wall to cover up a large area of plain, white walls.
Adorn Your Windows
If your home has standard window treatments, you may find them boring. Use unusual curtain rods, unique window treatments, and other creative touches to update the look of your windows. You can also play with string lights, retro-chic beaded curtains, and other hanging items to provide an eclectic look. Just be sure to use any lights safely by connecting them to a surge-protected outlet!
There is nothing like a plant to add interest to a room. No wonder plants have become one of the modern era’s most on-trend items! Choose large plants to set into corners and smaller plants to place on ledges, tables, and shelves. You can also hang potted plants where allowed. Not only will adding plants make your space more verdant, but it will also help you clean the air. No time to care for a plant? Consider silk plants instead!
