How to Make Your Apartment Feel Like Home

For apartment dwellers and other renters, your home can feel generic and sterile. You may be faced with white walls, neutral colors, and non-existent decorating touches. And much of what you’d like to do to liven up your home is disallowed by your lease. But there are some simple things you can do to add a personal touch to your home.

Add Some Color

If your wall can’t 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 white.

Update 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.

Make It Green

There is nothing like a plant to add interest to a room. Choose large plants to set into corners and smaller plants to place on ledges, tables, and shelves. Not only will you be making your room more verdant, you will also be cleaning your air. If your room does not receive much natural light, consider silk plants instead.
