Best Ways to Remodel Your Apartment
Are you feeling like a fresh look for the fall? Remodeling a rental apartment affords you a unique opportunity to make changes to how your home looks without investing a ton of time and money into renovations. Since you don’t own the property, you won’t be knocking down walls or tearing up floors, but there are some simple ways you can give your space a whole new look every season or just whenever you feel like it. Since we’ve all been spending a lot more time inside our own four walls, your home may look a little boring to you these days. A quick and fun refresh can do wonders for your mental health as we head into the cooler months. Here are some easy ways to remodel your apartment.
3 Things to Change When Remodeling a Rental Apartment
Since we’ve all been spending a lot more time inside our own four walls, your home may look a little boring to you these days. A quick and fun refresh can do wonders for your mental health as we head into the cooler months. Here are some easy ways to remodel your apartment.
We don’t suggest that you try and change out previously installed lighting fixtures but adding some new lamps to your space can really make it pop. Swap out lamps that you may already have in place for some with different tones and new styles. Play with lighting brightness to accentuate positive aspects of each room or make a space more inviting with a softer glow. Lighting is just a much a part of the decor as the painting on your wall!
Having different rugs for each season can automatically update the mood of your space. Bright florals for spring and summer can fade into neutral, warm tones for the second half of the year. While you may not have space to store huge area rugs, the smaller ones throughout your home can easily be switched out based on what time of year it is. Don’t forget to incorporate fun holiday welcome mats, too!
One easy thing to freshen up when remodeling a rental apartment is your decor. Maybe you’ve had the same three pieces of art slapped up on your walls at every place you’ve ever lived. Do they really spark joy? Take the time to truly curate your space and find pieces that speak to who you are and play up your current space. Replace decorative pillows to go with your new theme. Find some fresh curtains to complement your new rugs. Decor is where you can make everything come together! Find new furniture and decor pieces in one of the best shopping districts in Center City.
4. Office Space
If you’re like the rest of us, this year you’ve needed to navigate working from home. If you haven’t set up a proper office space in your apartment, now is the time. We’re not sure how long any of us will be “out” of the office, so making sure you have a space that feels comfortable and makes you feel efficient at home is key to long-term work-from-home success. If you don’t have a dedicated room in your apartment, something as simple as dedicating a corner as an office space can work. Find a cute desk, some adorable accessories, and a comfortable chair to create your new office right at home. No cubicle needed!
