How to Fully Customize Your Apartment Without Losing the Security Deposit

Before you embark on any intense decorating efforts, make sure you’re double-checking with your apartment manager to see what is allowed.

Whether you plan on laying down roots or you just like to add some personality in to your living space, it can be very fun and enjoyable to decorate and incorporate your own personal touches into your new apartment. However, before you embark on any intense decorating efforts, make sure you’re double-checking with your apartment manager to see what is allowed and what isn’t. Read on to learn how to customize your apartment without losing a cent of your security deposit!

Take Advantage of Various Floor Plans

Although many apartment communities might only offer a couple of standard one or two-bedroom floor plans, you might want to take a look and see which other communities offer different sizes and home living options. This will let you start with a space that inspires. This could be the home that is located in a small, quiet spot at the far end of a community, including:

  • A special corner room.
  • Larger windows that attract a lot of light.
  • A balcony for relaxing outdoors.

Whatever makes the space special, it is crucial to consider the apartment’s structure and architecture that contribute to its natural and unique character. Just make sure you aren’t putting your security deposit in jeopardy.

Use Plenty of Color

Incorporating your own favorite hues can be a fun and easy way to add your personality into your living space. In some instances, you could be allowed to paint the interior walls. If this isn’t allowed, you could add color through custom-painted furniture, decorate throw pillows, favorite rugs, or some unique window dressings too.

Get Creative with the Wall Space

Decorating can go quite a long way beyond hanging up a normal picture or piece of artwork. If painting isn’t allowed, you could consider putting up a removable wallpaper too. A wide range of different peel-and-stick decorations are available now, making it a lot easier to change the look of a space or room, and almost as easy to move out, all without leaving a trace! Floating shelves are another option that invites you to decorate any bigger spaces without nailing many holes in your apartment walls.

Organize Plenty

If you find your apartment is overflowing with a lot of belongings, it can be smart to invest in some designer organizational accessories. They will help keep your life in order, while also adding color, character, and style to everything from your entryway to your kitchen pantry.
