One common misconception of living in an apartment home is that you can’t make it your own. Typically, renters aren’t allowed to change the paint colors in their apartments or do any remodeling. There are still some great ways to make your 55+ apartment feel like home and put your personal flare on the space without make drastic changes.

  • Consider some curtains. Sometimes apartment windows are drab, with boring blinds in every unit. You can make your apartment stand out from the crowd, though, with window treatments that suit her style. Pick a color and design that complements your apartment and existing décor while adding your own personal flair. Another benefit of curtains is that they allow you to control the light and keep your apartment cozy.
  • Establish a theme. When you choose a central color scheme or décor theme, you can tie the overall look of your apartment’s various rooms together. Once you’ve created a cohesive look, your home will look more elegant and sophisticated. Farmhouse chic? Coastal hues? Southern Living? Or Modern Simplicity? There are many ways to bring personality into your apartment home. Look into color theory and figure out which colors work best together as you’re creating a color palette and adding complementary decorations to your home.
  • Light fixtures are an easy fix. If your home feels drab and ho-hum, it’s easy to add personality by switching out your light fixtures. Choosing a dramatic fixture that suits your personality is a great way to upgrade the look of a boring light bulb cover. There’s an amazing array of light fixtures on the market, so do some exploring to find your true style.
  • Make it homey with meaningful décor. Maybe it’s family photos of the grandkids, or maybe you’ve collected pieces from places you’ve visited while traveling. Decorating with things that hold meaning for you can help you create a home that exudes personality and shows people who you really are.
