Tips to make your apartment feel like home – check these out!

Affordable apartments aren’t always the most comfortable spaces to live in, and a lot of times can keep you from feeling like you’re ever really truly settled in your own home.

If you want to make your rental feel more like a space that’s genuinely yours, use these tips and turn your cheap apartment into your relaxing retreat.

Keep It Organized

One of the most common issues with more affordable apartments is that they tend to be smaller without much storage space. An easy fix to make your apartment look and feel bigger is to figure out your organization system early and stick to it.

Pick up some affordable shelves and boxes to get started on sorting out your belongings in a way that makes sense for you.

Add wall art you love

The best way to warm up your space is to add art! Visit a local flea market or even search online to buy pieces you can hang.


Apartment-Safe Decor

Landlords tend to pick neutral paint colors and furniture options to include in their rental spaces to make it as versatile as possible, but that can put you in a tricky spot when it comes to decorating your home. Check with your landlord to see if you’re allowed to paint the walls, and if not, look for some temporary options like removable wallpaper. Or even your own custom designs made with removable vinyl and a Cricut machine. 

Better yet, you can hang a beautiful sarong or fabric or even a vintage blanket.

Don’t to forget to include some plants and other types of decor – these can really bring a bit of extra life into your space.

Light It Up

Not all apartment spaces are fortunate enough to have great natural lighting, and a poorly lit space can feel infinitely smaller. If you’ve got limited window space and natural light, make the most of it with strategically placed mirrors and lamps. Added lighting will make your apartment feel larger, while also enhancing the look of your space no matter what your decoration preferences are.

Keep In Touch With Your Landlord

Not all landlords are used to their new position and might be new to renting out their space, especially if you’re renting a room in a house. It’s important to keep in touch with them when something breaks down and needs fixing to make your space more livable. 

Not all apartments start out as the perfect place for you and your family to live, but a few adjustments, decorations, and maintenance options can help turn them into your new home. What fixes have you had to make in your apartment so far? What has helped you and your family see your rental as a home environment?
