Being away from home can be a challenging phase in your life. Staying in a rented space or lease apartment, where decorating options are limited, can make you feel out of place. Transforming your dull rented space into a friendly abode is a great way to reduce the pain of being away from home.
Here’s how you can brighten up your space (and your mood) with a few easy hacks!
1. Green It
This is, undoubtedly, one of the most convenient ways you can enliven your rent apartment without breaking the bank. If you lead a busy schedule and don’t have time to look after plants, then bring home low-maintenance varieties that don’t need much care.
Place these in dull corners of the room, atop tables or desks, or even in your kitchen, to bring a cheerful element into the area. Flowers are another way you can add a refreshing twist.
2. Floored, and How!
Are the boring tiles on the floor taking away from your room’s charm? Beautify them with artistic rugs!
There’s a rug for any space or layout you’re working with. If your dining area or living area lack a bit of personality, introducing a rug will help you anchor the decor.
A thoughtfully planted rug will uplift the look of your room and help you draw attention to this area. Going with printed rugs when you have plain walls helps to add texture to the area. Opt for a solid or pastel-toned rug if your have different types of furniture or graphic wallpapers, to harmonise the look.
3. Let There Be Light
Lighting can make or break the looks of any room.
Inadequate lighting can make even a spacious and cozy space look tedious. Conversely, having the right lighting will help you set the right tone and create a lasting impression.
Light accents like lamps or floor lights can help draw eyes to the features you want highlighted in a particular area. You can even go with different shades to play around with different moods and intensities. Ceiling accents can help in accentuating the look of your dining area, corridor, or living room.
You can also go with scented candles to brighten up your desk, the fireplace mantel, or any other area, and add a touch of class and sensuality.
