One of the hardest things about living in an apartment can be figuring out how to style your apartment. But it can also be one of the best things. Apartment decorating gives you an opportunity to bring all your HGTV inspirations to life. Here’s 5 ways to add a little bit of life to those white walls.

Lamps in apartment

1. Illuminate your Space

In small spaces, good lighting can make all the difference. And you don’t have to adjust your ceiling lights either. Adding floor lamps and table lamps can make all the difference in your apartment. When a room is brighter it will also make your room look better.

You would be surprised with the difference a few extra throw pillows can make. Adding in a few extra throw pillows can bring your apartment to life. Pillows are a great way to get creative and add color and character to your pad.

3. Succulents

Succulents can make your space feel clean and fresh. Spring is  the perfect time of year to use succulents as an accent in your apartment because they need sunlight in order to stay alive. Succulents will make your pad feel more lively and they can add a small splash of color to your apartment. You can put succulents on the table or window as an arrangement or you can hang them from the ceiling in a glass hanging planter.

4. Make it Shine with Mirrors

Mirrors are another way to create an illusion of extra space in your apartment. If you place a large mirror on your wall in the opposite direction of your windows the sunlight coming in will reflect off the mirror making it appear bigger and brighter than your room actually is.

5. Add an Area Rug

A large area rug can make your small space feel just a little bit more clean and organized. This is also the perfect opportunity for you to pull in something a little bit bolder and a bit brighter without drawing too much attention to the item.
