Although the chaos of the holiday season may be over, winter has only just begun. With the chilly temperatures keeping you indoors for most of the season, now is a perfect time to customize your rental property as a safe and cozy space from even the coldest days of January.
Soften Up the Lights
Just because the weather outside may be harsh, the lighting in your space doesn’t need to be too. While drilling and removing existing fixtures is often discouraged by landlords, you can still replace, readjust, or accessorize the existing lights in your rental home or apartment. Tone down the brightness of any harsh fluorescent lighting with soft shades, string lights, or easy-install hanging fixtures that can warm up the grey of winter days. These simple but stylish add-ons are easily incorporated into any existing fixture, and can effortlessly transform your space into a perfect place to read, work, or sleep.
Texturize Your Living Space
As renters, it can be difficult or nearly impossible to change our floors by any drastic measure. However incorporating other touches of texture throughout your living room or kitchen can make any room in your apartment as comfortable as your favorite blanket. One easy way to do this is by adding cozy area rugs to open floor areas such as the living room or hallway. Another trend in texture is the pairing of soft colors and textures next to metal or stone pieces, such as using soft runners under centerpieces or textured throw pillows.
Section Off Open Rooms
Open concept spaces can be great for entertaining, but if you’re looking to change up your space for more evenings in, compartmentalizing the space in your home is a great start for a fresh look. Section off spaces in your living room with area rugs, bookshelves, or larger pieces of furniture to create cozy corners and creative storage spaces within your existing rooms. In doing this, you’re not only upping your design game, but also maximizing your space and resources as a renter.
