Are you hunting for your first apartment, or searching for short term housing? Either way, you deserve a space that’s comfortable, safe and and tons of fun to be in. If you’re looking for ways to spruce up your place, here are a few hacks to try.
Go for an Accent Wall
A single accent wall can make any room pop, and you can do this with or without paint! If you can’t paint your walls, try using some temporary wallpaper on a single section of the room — this super easy solution comes in countless colors and patterns, and it’s easy to put up and remove. If you’re not comfortable with wallpaper, try using knick knacks, artwork and framed photographs all over a single wall for a truly exciting effect.
Upgrade Your Bathroom
The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in any home, and there are several ways you can take it to the next level. Start with a curved shower rod and a split shower curtain for an added layer of elegance, and top things off with some peel-and-stick stones on the side of the tub. A frame around your bathroom mirror can make the whole space look fancier, and a matching set of decorative towels and plush, absorabant rugs can give your bathroom a very elevated feel.
Spruce Up the Kitchen
Your kitchen deserves an upgrade, and an easy way to do this is with the addition of plants. You can use real potted plants, simple succulents or fake plastic plants to achieve a soft, natural look that adds life to the whole space. Save some room on the countertops with a sleek magnetic utensil strip on the wall, and add some pops of color with decorative ingredient jars. If you can, painting your cabinets can breathe new life into the entire kitchen!
Make a Home Theater
Even on a budget, you can turn your living room into an amazing home theater. Mount your TV or a projector screen on the largest exposed wall in the room, and arrange your furniture so that everything faces it. Use blackout curtains to keep the space dark, and invest in a quality soundbar for a next-level experience. As a bonus, a novelty popcorn maker and mini bar are a great way to make the whole experience more immersive.
With a few tips and a little hard work, it’s easy to turn any home into something more. Try some of these hacks today!
