Moving to a new place can be very exciting. A new location, experiences, memories, and decorating. However, something might still seem unsettling at first. Are you missing the “home” feeling? Making your apartment feel like your home is simple.
The First Step to Making Your Apartment Feel Like Home: Decluttering
Yes, your apartment will have boxes and bubble wrap lying around for a while. Donate the unnecessary items and tuck away the ones not being used.
Being in the middle of “too much” and “not enough” can be the key to making a space your own.
It’s much better to put away the unnecessary and display the things that are most important to you to show off your personality.
Display Your Sentimental Items
These are the little knick-knacks and photos that will make your apartment feel like home. A few examples of this could include:
- photos of your loved ones,
- a blanket that maybe your grandmother made you,
- a piece of furniture that has been passed down to you.
It’s the little things in life that hold so much meaning, why not show them off? Before you know it, your apartment will feel like home.
Apartment Living: Break in Your Kitchen
Sometimes unpacking can be exhausting and fast food is the easy route to go. Start with your kitchen first and cook a delicious dinner to celebrate your new home. The feeling of preparing a cooked meal will sure to make you feel at home.
Improve Privacy in Your Apartment
As a renter, you can only do so much to soundproof your space. However there are ways to soundproof your walls even further without construction. One great way to do this is to fill your space with furniture and a few rugs! These will prevent the sound from bouncing from wall to wall.
Hanging your curtains can really make a huge difference. Not only do they help tie in all your room décor but, they can give you dim lighting or go for the complete blackout feel. This is sure to make your home feel super cozy, private and not to mention “complete”.
Organizing Your Apartment
Organizing your apartment is easy with simple planning. The first step is to minimize the clutter in your entryway. We know, this is the easiest place to drop “things” when you come home, but this is also the easiest source of congestion.
Boxes galore is the current situation I’m sure. Start with one room at a time and as you’re unpacking, go ahead and put them in the place you would like them. If something doesn’t seem right after all the boxes have been empty, try to rearrange to get that perfect look for your home. Home organization can bring a stress-free lifestyle to your home.
A few tricks we’ve learned along the way include:
- Make the most of your vertical space. You can maximize storage and display your collectibles simply by expanding up.
- Find furniture that doubles as storage, such as storage automatons, bar carts, etc.
- Don’t forget the space behind your door. Adding a rack or hooks for bathroom necessities is one easy way to declutter your apartment.
Settling In to Your New Apartment
After you have finished unpacking, the bubble wrap and boxes have disappeared, and your apartment now feels like a little oasis of your own, just sit back, relax, look around and enjoy your new place. You have created something that fits your personality and reflects who you are. Everything is coming together, and you have a place you can call HOME.
