Signing the lease on your first apartment rental is an exciting milestone but the next step is to furnish your new place. Your priorities should be finding furniture and home decor pieces that reflect your personality and budget. With that in mind, the following guide offers several tips for helping you feel truly at home.
Ways to Style a New Apartment
1. Buy a Comfortable Mattress
If you can only splurge on one piece of furniture, make it the mattress. Not only will it last you for years, but also help you get a restful night’s sleep which, in turn, is linked to lower stress levels, increased productivity, better memory function, and even weight loss.
2. Choose an Accent Piece for the Living Room
To create a focal point in a neutral living room, add a bold and functional accent piece. A sectional couch is great for relaxing and hosting guests, while a coffee table offers storage and a stylish place to rest drinks and snacks.
3. Add Home Decor
In addition to the key furniture pieces, you can transform your apartment from basic to chic by incorporating the right home decor pieces. Wall art creates a beautiful focal point and can brighten up a neutral space. Throw blankets and pillows also add color and texture for a relatively small cost. Finally, consider some scented candles or plants so that your new apartment appeals to multiple senses.
