How To Decorate Your First Apartment?


We get it, you are young, fresh, and new to the adult life and you are probably wondering about what you should do now that you are no longer living in your parents’ house. 

If you are unsettled yet, the best thing to do is to have an apartment of your own. If you ever watch too much television, your first apartment would not exactly look like Monica’s pad on the set of Friends so do not expect a lot. It might probably just be a small space with one window and an air-conditioning unit. 

If you have work at all or earning minimum wage, it is better to stick to a small apartment because you are the only one going to live on that place so even a few square meters will do the trick. 

And if you do not have a job on the day you move in, you better have one because due date for your rent won’t wait for you. 

Now you have your first apartment and it looks like a blank canvas waiting to be painted with furniture and ornaments. You, as the artist, should have the creative mind to turn the place from a lonely space to a humble abode of an individual starting to live on his own. 

If you have no idea on what to put on your place, make sure to start with the living room. If you have a studio type apartment, your living room and kitchen might probably have no barriers between them so setting up your living room is the best place to start. 

After the living room, make sure to fix your kitchen. Check if you have proper plumbing and be aware that your kitchen should blend in with the living room. You can go for your room next since that is where you rest. 

But if you want the intricate part of the house you should fix, go to the bathroom and fix it meticulously. The bathroom reflects you as an apartment owner so make sure that it feels good in the eyes and the nose. 

If you have no idea on how to start furnishing your bathroom, don’t be scared and put your tears down the drain. Here is an infographic from Mr Rooter to make sure you are ready to tend your lavatory.
