Moving into your first apartment can be exciting and overwhelming all at the same time. It’s time to start thinking about furniture, decor, and how you’re going to organize everything!
You don’t need fancy and expensive furniture so I suggest asking around to see is anyone you know if giving away couches or desks. You can also buy quality and reasonably priced furniture from Target or Ikea!
Decorating your apartment is the best part! Make your apartment feel cozy with a lot of blankets and maybe a big throw rug. Anything that makes you feel at home. Another way to feel at home is lot of pictures! Print them out and put them in a frame or the wall for some decor. Christmas lights are also a fun way to bring your room together. I know it sounds weird, but there are so many ways to hang them to make your apartment a relaxing environment all year round. And that’s important for when you start to get stressed! Candles and fresh flowers can also bring out the zen. And your apartment will smell good which is always a plus :)
It’s important to find ways to organize all your stuff so that when you get messy it’ll be easy to get back on track. Here are some ideas:
– Under the bed storage bins for winter clothes
– Wicker baskets for towels and laundry supplies
– DIY magnetic makeup board
– DIY crate seats for a place to sit and for storage
