Apartment Decor: Tips & Tricks

One of the largest misconceptions that we have ever heard here at the Landmark Apartments is that apartments can never have a “homey” feel because you are limited in the number of decorations that you can put up. Sure, not being able to throw a nail in the wall to hang one of your favorite pictures is a drag, but there are other ways to make an apartment feel like a home. In today’s blog, we will discuss the simplest ways to decorate your apartment. Don’t have an apartment yet? Check out our wonderful apartments for rent in Fort Collins today.

Utilize Your Lighting

One of the best ways to make an apartment feel like a home is to make the lighting easily adjustable to adapt to your mood. Sure, you can’t take your light switch off and install a dimmer switch, but you can adjust it in a much easier way. The first way to adjust the lighting is quite obvious because it is literally just buying a new light. Most lamps that are currently available have some form of dimmer function, making it extremely easy to control the light in your apartment.

Now that you have lamps to adjust the lighting during the night time you might need a way to do so during the day. Luckily, this is extremely easy to do. Installing a multi-layered curtain is the perfect way to control the amount of light that comes in. With one of the layers covering the window, a lot of light can still get in, but using all three layers, hardly any will.

There are a lot of apartments for rent in Fort Collins, CO but we think that ours is the perfect one for you. Here at the Landmark Apartments we have units that feature large windows that soak up the western light in the evening, and with the tools, we outlined above, you can choose how much of that light gets in.

Organize

One of the major reasons that people feel like they can’t be comfortable in an apartment is because they think there isn’t enough room for their stuff. While this could be a potential issue, there are ways around it (unless you simply have way more stuff than you need). Creating a large storage unit out of a recycled dresser can make for a ton of free space.

Utilize All Things Sticky

What we mean by utilizing all things sticky we simply mean that you should not be afraid to use sticky wall hangers and sticky poster pads. Sticky poster pads are perfect for holding things like posters, bulletin boards, and light mirrors on the wall without damaging the wall when you decide to move out. Sticky hooks are extremely beneficial for hanging larger things on the wall. When most people see a sticky wall hook they think that it looks weak and unable to hold a picture, when in reality some can hold up to 20 pounds.

So when you decide to move on to a house, leaving the Google search “Fort Collins apartments for rent” forever in your rearview, you can rest easy knowing that you will get your deposit back because you were responsible and used sticky hooks.
