If you’re like most apartment renters, you may not want to invest a fortune in decorating your temporary home. But it’s also important to make it feel like home for the time you live there. With a few decorative touches, you can add personality to your apartment and still get your security deposit back when you move out. In this blog post, we’ll explore some easy ways to decorate your apartment and ensure you get your deposit returned upon your move out. Additionally, we’ll be introducing VITRA’s luxury one and two-bedroom apartments for rent – contemporary living spaces that are perfect for the stylish tenant, with all the amenities and comforts required.

1. Peel-and-Stick Wallpaper:

An excellent and inexpensive way to make your apartment your own is by using peel-and-stick wallpaper. This easy-to-apply wallpaper typically comes in a variety of designs and patterns and can be applied to walls, cabinets, and even dressers—just about any smooth surface. This option can add a pop of color and personality without expensive painting, and the best part is that you can peel it away easily without leaving any residue when you’re ready to move out.

2. Area Rugs:

Adding an area rug can truly transform the look of an apartment. It’s also an excellent option for hiding any unsightly spots or stains that may have accumulated on flooring. Keep in mind that when choosing an area rug, try to find one that is the right size for your space. You want to make sure your furniture is not too close to the edges of the rug. Additionally, if you’re going to invest in one that’s on the pricier side, it’s best to get a neutral color that will complement the overall style of an apartment.

3. Artwork:

Hanging artwork is another way to add instant personality to your apartment. Whether it’s paintings, posters, or printed photographs, this is a perfect opportunity to showcase artwork that speaks to you. When hanging artwork, try to put a little thought into the placement. Hanging pieces at eye level is best, and it’s smart to use a level to ensure the artwork is hung evenly.

4. Plants:

An easy and budget-friendly way to decorate your apartment is by adding indoor plants. Not only do plants add color, but they can also help purify the air in your space. Several plants can thrive in low-light conditions, making them perfect for apartment living. You can find plants that require little care, such as succulents, or those that require a little more attention, like a fiddle-leaf fig tree.

5. Curtains:

It’s not uncommon for apartments to have plain, boring window treatments. Swapping out those treatments for something more stylish can add charm, warmth, and privacy to a space. Consider picking up some curtains or drapes that complement your decor style, whether it’s a colorful print or neutral tones. They can also be an affordable way to insulate your apartment and block out unwanted sound.
