Adults living in apartments are always looking for new ways to make their apartment more personal, more unique toward their own individual styles and tastes. Most landlords don’t allow minor construction or even adding new paint to your rooms. So in an effort to make the apartment you’re renting more… you!, here’s a list of 6 things you can do right now to personalize your space.
Love to Entertain? Does every holiday celebration seem to end up taking place in your apartment? If this is the case and you just can’t give up precious kitchen space to serve drinks, why not create a rolling-bar! There are dozens of free-standing/pre-built bars that you can purchase that are great for entertaining. They come in all sorts of styles to match your apartment for rent. And they are the perfect size to place in the corner of your living room or dining area. This keeps folks out of the kitchen during meal preparation and also creates a real party atmosphere! And when the party is over, just roll it away, out of sight.
Light up Your Life
Apartments for rent in Suffolk County often come with “generic” light fixtures and covers. A very inexpensive way to brighten up your space is to purchase new light covers. This is a great way to personalize your apartment and give a more rich appearance to your rooms. Remember to save the original fixtures that came with the apartment (in a closet or storage unit) so that you can replace the ones you bought with the originals before you move.
Create a Theme
Winter, spring, summer, fall. Every season has a particular feel. Think about it, even your clothes adjust season-to-season, so why not your home? Renting an apartment in Nassau County usually means decorating for every upcoming season. So, when spring arrives, change your color scheme from golds and dark reds to light blues and whites. When summer arrives, add some yellow or red to your apartment for rent. Fall is a great time to add oranges and blacks. And during the winter, your apartment can become a winter wonderland.
Some apartments for rent in NYC are not as big as you would usually prefer, but hey, if it’s in your budget than you make the best with what you’ve got! One of the best ways to make a small space feel larger is to add mirrors! Mirrors reflect light (which also helps light up your room) and also make a small space appear larger. This old reliable decorator’s trick has worked wonders for designers and decorators for years’, why not let it work for you! TIP: Place a large mirror in your dining space or living room, at the end of a long hallway or across from a window. These “tricks of the trade” will help enhance your living space.
Plan for Plants
Moving in to an apartment that feels cold and lonely? Plants look great and they’re an awesome way to make a house feel more like a home. Renting an apartment on a budget can leave little money for decoration, furniture or expensive art. But you’ve got a plan…, just add some plants! Plants are inexpensive, cheery and full of life! Adding a few hanging plants, floor plants or table top foliage, can really help spruce up your apartment. Plus, if you get tired of your apartments layout and you are redecorating, moving plants is easy. Simply moving a few plants around can give your apartment a brand new, decorative feel.
Know Your Knobs
We all know that apartments for rent in NYC sometimes come with limitations. And when customizing your kitchen appliances or cabinetry is not an option, you can still “dress-up” your kitchen cabinets by doing something that isn’t against the rules. Simply add some new knobs or pulls to the facing of your cabinets or draws! It’s both easy and inexpensive. With a simple turn of a screwdriver you can ‘swap-out’ those stale looking handles for a brand new design that’ll really give your kitchen a beautiful decorative touch. Just remember, save the old handles and knobs and replace them before you leave your lease.
