Whether you’re in college or just graduated, these decor ideas will help make any tiny space your own. It’s easy to feel completely underwhelmed when you first move in and see your kitchen is also in your bedroom, so read on to discover how you can turn that bland apartment beautiful!
Add Artsy Photos
The move with this decor idea is to arrange the photos in a way that makes the room feel cozy. Adding an accent photo wall is a great way to break up the space, and you get to show off all the things that are most important to you!
Plus, creating a dedicated space for photos makes your apartment look neat and clean. You can arrange them in a fun design, or make a huge collage. This decor idea gives you the chance to get creative!
Get Some Throw Pillows
It doesn’t matter if you’re sleeping in a queen or can barely fit a twin size bed in your room– this decor idea will add life to your bedroom. Throw pillows add color and style, and they make your space look more organized.
Plus, it gives you the incentive to make your bed every day because they look so cute! Add different sizes to really shake things up.
This decor idea couldn’t be simpler, or more trendy. Tapestries are colorful, have fun designs, and you can get really big ones to fill up a wall. I think they look best hanging over your bed, but they look awesome on the ceiling, too. You’ll definitely bring good vibes only with this decor idea!
Find An Accent Color For The Kitchen
Apartment kitchens are such a bore, so this decor idea will help make that space feel magical. Bring in a splash of your favorite color with a fun teapot (gotta heat up water for coffee somehow!), bowls, or mugs and watch your kitchen come to life. The brighter the color the better!
Bring In Plants
This is my favorite decor idea for apartment living. Adding a plant automatically turns a space from dull to fabulous! If you’re anything like me you probably have a hard time keeping plants alive, so invest in some succulents. They require less water, and are way more adorable!
Add some plants to any space you feel needs a little character and I guarantee you will get tons of compliments! You really can’t go wrong with this decor idea.
Add A Bookshelf
Have you ever heard the saying “if you go home with someone and they don’t have books, don’t fuck ’em?” It couldn’t be more accurate! Adding books to your apartment shows you’re an educated young person, and it makes the whole apartment feel more like home.
This decor idea sounds expensive, but it really isn’t. You can find cheap bookshelves at Target or Goodwill. I repainted mine to really show off my personality!
Let There Be Light!
Bringing in cute little lights is one of my favorite decor ideas. A bunch of stores sell fairy lights, and Target has a great selection of lamps for your desk, or get a big one for the floor to really light up the room!
A lot of apartments have terrible overhead lighting, so getting a lamp or hanging lights will completely brighten up the space and make it feel more like your own.
Put Candles EVERYWHERE!
Candles are the best decor idea because they make every apartment feel special. Put candles on your bedside table, bookshelf, desk, by the windows, put them everywhere and anywhere! They immediately make any small space look cute. Just make sure you blow them out before going to bed!
