If you’ve recently moved into an apartment, you’re probably overwhelmed by piles of boxes, struggling to find your coffee mugs, and clearing a big enough space to sleep the night of the move.
However, as you get settled, there are simple solutions that will make your apartment feel like home sweet home in no time.
Hang Wall Art
Starting with the walls is a great way to start according to Lifehack: hang up a few pieces of art and invest in a few new pieces that you love. Having some wall décor can help set the tone for the vibe of your place. If you want to create a soft space, hang flowers and pastels. If you are hoping to create a bold space, hang vibrant colors and geometric designs.
An area rug can be a powerful tool, especially when it comes to apartments. You can rarely change the floors in an apartment, but you can spruce them up or style them with an area rug. An area rug can serve as a solid focal point for a room of any size. An area rug can create a warm space and be a great way to personalize a space.
Empty the Boxes
It’s an overwhelming concept, when you’re staring at a pile of boxes stacked up to your ceiling. However, you should absolutely empty each box and make sure to recycle the boxes after. It might take a few weeks, and that’s OK. Just make sure that once you’re settled, all of your things are settled as well and that boxes aren’t cluttering your space, otherwise you’ll never feel at home.
Host a Party
Once you’re settling in, throw yourself a bit of an apartment warming party. Now that you have your very own space, use it! Spending time in your new apartment with your friends and family is guaranteed to make it feel like home.
