How to Decorate Your Apartment Without Breaking the Lease

For apartment dwellers and other renters, your home can feel generic and sterile. You may be faced with white walls, neutral colors, and very few decorative touches, with much of what you’d like to do to liven up your home being disallowed by your lease. However, there are some simple things you can do to add a personal touch to your home – and what better time to do this than when you’re self-quarantined? Check out our ideas here!

Add Some Color

Since your walls can’t be painted, try painting your furniture instead. Adding color to your furnishings can liven up a room and provide a unified look. Add some colorful pillows or throws to your bed or couch and choose area rugs that coordinate with your color theme. You can also hang large tapestries, quilts, or rugs on your wall to cover up a large area of plain, white walls.

Adorn Your Windows

If your home has standard window treatments, you may find them boring. Use unusual curtain rods, unique window treatments, and other creative touches to update the look of your windows. You can also play with string lights, retro-chic beaded curtains, and other hanging items to provide an eclectic look. Just be sure to use any lights safely by connecting them to a surge-protected outlet!

Go Green

There is nothing like a plant to add interest to a room. No wonder plants have become one of the modern era’s most on-trend items! Choose large plants to set into corners and smaller plants to place on ledges, tables, and shelves. You can also hang potted plants where allowed. Not only will adding plants make your space more verdant, but it will also help you clean the air. No time to care for a plant? Consider silk plants instead!
