Decorate Your Apartment

While there are plenty of things to love about living in a rental, decorating is not one of them. When you’re living in an apartment, decorating can be difficult due to restrictions in your rental agreement. Painting, changing hardware, and hanging too many things on the wall is usually discouraged. This week the Liv Ahwatukee Blog is making expressing yourself a little easier by giving you four apartment-safe ways to decorate your apartment. It’s possible to let your personality shine through and keep your rental agreement.



Curtains are a fun and easy way to add some personality to your space without breaking the budget. We recommend going with a different color scheme in each room, letting your style show through the different themes and colors you choose.



Brightening up your bedroom can be as easy as changing up the sheets! One easy way to switch up your room’s look is to buy a new comforter and add a few new throw pillows to your bed. We recommend that you get creative with your throw pillows, especially. Throw pillows often have memorable quotes, fun patterns, or even the portraits of historical figures on them. Find pillows that you feel express your unique, quirky style.



Breathe a little life into your space with a few plants. Plants add color and life into an apartment, making it feel a lot more homey and personal. Growing a herb garden is a great way to decorate your apartment and save money on seasoning. If you don’t have much of a green thumb, we recommend growing succulents or cacti.



Make your space personal with photos of your friends, movie posters, and your favorite works of art. Pictures will liven up the space, and they also serve as great conversation starters. “Wait, you love Rothko’s No. 14? Me too!”
