Make Your Apartment a Home Sweet Home

make your apartment a home

Moving into a new apartment at Poplar Ridge Apartments in Fort Wayne is exciting. In addition to the normal to-do list stuff, like unpacking and getting settled in, you should consider how to make your place a home. Here are a few considerations:

  • Personal elements like photos, artwork and knickknacks, are a great place to start. Consider matting and framing nicer pieces to hang on the wall. Be selective about which items you choose; they should fit into your overall decor scheme and suit your tastes. Don’t just go with whatever’s trendy.
  • Get sentimental. Heirlooms and sentimental belongings can not only provide comfort, but can be great conversation starters and really tie a room together.
  • Plants can create a cozy environment. Do some research about which houseplants require low maintenance.
  • Lighting matters. It can make or break a space. Look for compact florescent light bulbs that are designed to produce warm, gentle light. Take advantage of natural light in the spring and summer months.
  • Embrace color. You might consider selecting a color palette theme throughout your apartment. This can make selecting furniture and accent pieces like pillows much easier. It also ensures that your apartment will be a reflection of your unique sense of style.
  • Start fresh. Before you put stuff away, do a deep clean. This gives you a fresh start both literally and figuratively.
  • Fill your space with good company. Consider having a housewarming party. There’s nothing like good times and good people to make you feel welcomed. Plus, moving is a perfect excuse to catch up with old friends.

Your home at Poplar Ridge Apartments is the perfect place to start a new chapter of your life. With these tips you can infuse your personal style into your new space.

    My friend has moved to her new apartment for a couple of months. When I came to help her transfer the furniture, I was so tired and confused that I only wanted to throw everything because most of her stuffs were hard to fit the new apartment. I suggested her buy everything new. Of course she would not. If I had read your post, it would have been much easier.
