We all rent an apartment for different reasons. Whether we are fresh out of college and in need of a place to call our own or we love the amenities that come with apartment living, there are specific reasons why some people choose apartment life over a condo or single home. Typically, bigger cities offer many different apartment options. However, the struggle to live in a rental that is perfect becomes all too real. Finding an affordable place in a safe neighborhood can be a feat all on its own. Here are few easy ways you can improve the look and feel of the rental that you want to call home.
Add Some Color To The Walls
Even if you choose an all-white aesthetic, deciding to give your apartment a beautiful, fresh coat of paint can really do wonders. Also consider adding prints, photos, and plants. These design elements are a great way to infuse some personality into your apartment. Just think about what a statement wall could do to the overall feel of your rental. Removable wallpaper is another obvious choice. If you are going for a homier and classier look, you can do no wrong with removable wallpaper.
Cover Those Ugly Floors
Most apartments don’t come equipped with the best floors available. In fact, they can be downright uglier than usual. While creaky, weathered floorboards can often add character, they aren’t always the prettiest to look at. If you want to have a more luxurious and modern feel to your space, cover those ugly floors with rugs! Investing in tons of different rugs not only covers up what you don’t want to see, but it gives you an opportunity to showcase your style. If you happen to have a long, narrow hallways, consider getting a beautiful runner to cover up an ugly floor.
Another idea for your less than perfect floors is adhesive flooring. This temporary option is usually beneficial for people who plan to stay put in their rental for a significant amount of time. Using interlocking vinyl tiles and adhesive, you can create a beautiful temporary floor that genuinely defines your space.
