There’s no reason as to why an apartment should be considered inferior to a house. Of course, a house may have a garden, larger rooms and multiple floors, but this doesn’t mean that an apartment has zero chance in being a fantastic place for your family, or to help yourself set up correctly. In fact, more and more people with jobs in the inner-city are taking to apartments to save money and to enjoy just the right amount of space for the people they are living with. This means they shouldn’t feel worse about making this life decision, because it can be perfectly fit for purpose. There are many barren and ill-maintained homes and lovely apartments out there, as well as vice versa. 

However, you may wish to make your apartment look more like home in order to compensate for a lack of outdoor space, or perhaps being surrounded in a tight city environment. This can be a great idea. For that, we believe that the following advice would be most useful:

A Small Indoor Garden

A little greenery can make all the difference in a humble and smaller home. With an open tank and a grow light bulb set, you may be able to grow a range of lovely plants and also give an ambience to your home that you may not have expected. Additionally, this can be used to help you start hanging wall gardens, or livening up a room with a little color, or help a room become a little more grounding. They say that having a plant within a room can feel refreshing, and there’s only one way to find this out for your apartment.

Tasteful Art

A little tasteful art can truly make a difference. Decorating the walls too much will lead your small space to feel cluttered, but it’s perfectly fine for you to hang the implements you’d like to see. Consider the ‘point cost’ of said items. Are they bulky? Patterened? Do they require a stand or can they be hung? When you have an open-ish space, at least as much as possible, then the ‘less-is-more’ design ideal kicks in and gives your home much more vibrance. For example, LED-lit framed classic movie posters may be a great way to line a corridor.

Home Comforts

Home comforts matter. They can truly help a place shine, perhaps more than you might expect. A large and beautiful blanket for your bed, a very comfortable dog bed, a set of gorgeous lighting, some beautiful flower decorations across your bedpost, a comptuer station with cool LED’s at night, all of this matters and it can help you feel much more nurtured within your space. As far as that is concerned, you’re sure to enable this space with your creative input more than you might have realized, and this is an important thing to consider ahead of time.

With this in mind, you’re certain to make your apartment feel more like a home.
