How to Make Your Apartment More Homey

District Apartment Interior

Chances are you know a ton of people who are renting or who have rented an apartment. Renting is becoming more common, and there are so many advantages to renting over buying. 

When you’re living somewhere temporarily, it can be hard to make it feel like home. So let’s take a look at three home decor ideas for transforming your apartment into a place that you love to come home to.

Pillows and Blankets

The last thing you want is for your living room to feel like a waiting room or your bedroom to look like a stark hotel room. Consider adding a few cozy pillows and blankets to make your couch and bed look and feel more inviting. Plus, pillows and blankets add color and texture, elevating the design of the whole room. It’s a relatively inexpensive way to add a whole lot of comfort with hardly any effort. 

Room Dividers

Open concept floor plans definitely have their advantages, but there is something comforting and homey about smaller rooms. That’s why one of our favorite home decor ideas is to use room dividers. These can give each room a sense of purpose and add a splash of color to your space. And if you are working from home, it can hide your desk from view so you can focus on work when you’re at work and on home when you’re at home. 

Layered Rugs

Rugs—they may go under our feet, but they certainly don’t go under our notice! A rug can add a ton of personality and a put-together finish to an otherwise bland room. And when you layer rugs, that goes double. 

You can layer rugs either by stacking smaller rugs on larger rugs or overlapping larger rugs. This technique makes your floor feel soft under your feet, spruces up the room, and gives your home that lived-in, established look.
