Yes A Apartment Can Be Cute!

Okay so I am fresh out of college, which means that I am used to apartments that are…let’s say not so great looking. Let’s face 3 or 4 early 20 somethings living in a college apartment does not a cute room make usually. Unless it’s a sorority house, but I digress.

Most of the time, I find that people do not try to make their apartment something special because they view it as a temporary place or because it is not really theirs. I totally don’t agree with this! The better your place looks, and the more you like it the happier you will be!

So if you are not sure what to do to make your apartment your home try these few tips.

First, see if your apartment complex lets you paint an accent wall. A lot of places do and it is a great way to brighten up a space.

Second, invest in some window coverings. Curtains or window treatments are a great way to complete a space and make your room warm and cozy. If you are afraid to punch holes in your wall, for fear of the security deposit later, just use some command hooks. With the right size and shape you won’t even see the hooks.

The third tip is to accessorize! Adding some great pieces to a book shelf, like a vase or a floral or a frame, will really add some character to a room. Even better is adding art work to the walls. There are a variety of hooks and adhesive strips out there now days that will not damage your walls and will allow you to hang your piece.

So next time you want to make your apartment feel like a home, try these tips out.
