Turning your Apartment into a Home
If this is your first time in a new apartment, it can be a little intimidating. A new space to put all of your stuff. If you’ve just moved into a new apartment, there are a few things you can do to turn your new apartment into a home in six quick and easy steps.
1. Fill it with Furniture
Filling your apartment with new furniture can help it to take on your own personal style. If you don’t already have furniture, stores like Ikea and Wayfair offer furniture at crazy low prices! Or to make it even easier visit some furniture stores right here in Fort Wayne. One of our favorites is Rainbow Furniture Store. Unlike other furniture stores, they allow you to customize the furniture with different styles and fabrics to create a piece that’s truly unique and yours!
After you have furniture, then you can begin to decorate your apartment. Adding decorations is another inexpensive way to instantly make a place your own. You don’t have to look far to find some decorations that just scream “you.” Take into account your own personal taste and be sure to really make it your own. Hang up your favorite painting, pictures of loved ones, or even your favorite movie poster. Filling your apartment with the things you like will instantly make your new place feel like home.
3. Plant-ify your Place
Never underestimate the power of plants. Plants are the best roommates you could ask for! They’re completely silent; they look great and smell even better! Adding some greenery will make you feel right at home.
4. Get a Signature Scent
Similar to decorating, making your apartment smell amazing will instantly give you that “at home” feeling. Invest in some potpourri or air fresheners that matches your personality.
5. Explore the Neighborhood
If you’re moving into a new neighborhood, it helps if you get to know the neighborhood. Drive around a little and get to know what’s around you. Any grocery stores? Restaurants? Be sure to get acclimated with your surroundings! Knowing your way around will certainly help you feel at home.
6. Have a House Warming Party
Once your new apartment is all decorated, it’s time throw a party! Your new apartment will only feel like home if it’s filled with the people you love. Invite some friends and family over for a party! Cook dinner, make some cocktails, and host a get-together in your new home!
