Revamp Your Apartment with Current Decorating Trends
Spring is a time of rebirth and renewal, a time to sweep out the old and bring in the new! It’s the perfect time to revamp your apartment rental into the beautiful haven you’ve been imagining through the dark days of winter. This springtime, follow these easy and affordable trends that will help you create a space that has everybody who enters feeling refreshed and ready for some sunshine!
Bring in Some Plants
The easiest way to invite springtime into your apartment rental is to add a few pops of color by bringing in some of your favorite plants and flowers. Place a vase full of pretty, purple tulips on your mantle. Add daffodils for a bright, burst of yellow. Fill planters with crocus, irises, and pansies and place them just outside your windows where you can catch the perfect view of them throughout the day. Bringing some blooms into your space will certainly remind you of all the possibility this spring holds and is sure to brighten up both your mood and your home.
Another super, effective way to add a little sunshine to your apartment rental is to switch up your paint color. Replace dull, drab, or colorless walls with a splash of your favorite uplifting tone (think yellows, blues, and pinks). If your landlord says painting your walls is a big no-no, think about painting your furniture instead! It takes only the slightest bit of extra effort to get it done and it makes just as big of a statement as painting the walls would!
Now that you won’t have to worry about muddy, snowy boots being traipsed through your house, it’s time to invest in some brightly patterned throw rugs! These are a great way to liven up any room in your apartment rental and they don’t have to cost a fortune. From welcome mats, to runners, to full-blown area rugs, there’s no faster way to change up your space.
If you’ve been using your curtains as a means to keep out the winter drafts, it’s time to pull them down and throw open the windows! Instead of hanging heavy drapery that shuts out all of the beautiful weather, opt for sheer curtains that let the light shine in, or bright curtains with fun patterns that can give your mood a boost each morning.
Now that winter is on its way out, it’s time to ditch your heavy comforters and throw blankets. Brighten up the bedrooms in your apartment rental by replacing them with light, airy blankets and bedding. Cotton sheets will help to keep you nice and cool during the warmer months and duvets in white or bright colors will give your space a sense of springtime.
Throw pillows are a great way to spruce up any space and give it a quick and affordable facelift. Use them in your bedrooms, living room, and any other area within your apartment rental that boasts a seating space.
Change it Up
Another fun way to liven up your space is to change it up a bit. Shuffle the furniture around to configure each room in an entirely new way. Switch up the artwork that’s been hanging in the same place since you moved in! Invest a few dollars in some floating shelves to display your favorite items (and to hold some of those flower vases that you’ll be peppering throughout your space). Sometimes a simple shift in the way your apartment rental is arranged is enough to give it a whole new feel!
Lastly, don’t forget to declutter and clean up! Winter brings with it a sense of hibernation and your apartment rental can quickly begin to look more like a bears den than an actual home as things get piled up and shoved into drawers and cabinets. Spring is the perfect time to start fresh by decluttering, throwing out things that you no longer need, and reorganizing all of the spaces in your home. To avoid getting overwhelmed, commit to doing one thing each day! Your home will be sparkling and fresh before you know it!
