3 Reasons You Really Should Decorate Your Downtown Apartment

May 9th, 2019

1. Because you’ve got it together and your apartment should reflect that.  

You apartment is the first thing you see when you wake up in the morning, obviously. Have you ever thought seriously how that affects your mood? Perhaps waking up on the “right” side of the bed has more to do with what you see as you come out of a cozy slumber.

Everything from the decor to how well you clean has an effect on your mood. What kinds of colors does your Little Rock Apartment have? Do you keep your space clean enough to invite guests in at any moment?

Entertaining guests in a decent-looking apartment is much less stressful than constantly apologizing about the mess. Or worrying about what they must think of you based on your cleaning habits.

When you get home from a long day at work, your apartment should be there to comfort you. Walking into growing mess of your own doing will not remind you to relax and be yourself. However, a decent — not spotless, let’s be real — tastefully decorated apartment is a welcome sight to remind you that, despite everything that went on that day, you’ve got this handled.

2. Personalize.

We decorate our living and working spaces for the same reasons we choose fashionable clothing. We express our individuality in so many different ways. The way you choose to keep and decorate your home says a lot about you.

You might be renting the space, but you need to make it feel like home anyways. Adding photos of precious memories or treasured nick-nacks that “spark joy” is essential to creating a space you feel comfortable in.

Decorate with your favorite colors. Love to play disc golf? Instead of trying to store all those discs in a closet, spread them out along a wall. You are proud of your hobbies. You’ll be glad for their daily greetings.

Since you are renting, you may not be able to swing in on a wrecking ball and create a space that truly reflects your personality. That doesn’t mean you have to stick with anything boring. Get creative with what you can change about your space. This is a great way to teach yourself to think outside the box when it comes to your personal style.

3. Value.

You don’t live in a dump. If it feels like you do, you have not taken proper efforts to improve your space. Purchasing decor is a slow process — and not just because it is expensive. Any interior designer will tell you, don’t buy the furniture or decor item unless you absolutely love it. If it only scores a “it will do” it should not be in your home.

As you move around in life you can take these pieces and fill new homes. Making your investment last and your style timeless.
