If you’re looking to spruce up your apartment for summer, we’ve got some tips for you! There are many low-cost ways to upgrade your apartment and make it feel fresh for the new season. Check them out below!

Add Some Greenery!

Plants are a great way to add some life and color to your space. Not only are they beautiful, but they also provide great benefits like producing oxygen and purifying the air. Head on down to your local nursery and pick up some low-maintenance plants. If you need some tips on which plants are right for you, check out our favorite indoor plants.

Add Wall Art

Bare walls can make your apartment feel a bit bland! Add a gallery wall with photos of friends and family or find some great artwork that speaks to you. If you’re feeling extra creative, try and make your own!

Rearrange Your Furniture

Sometimes all you need to refresh your space is to rearrange! A cost-free option, experimenting with different layouts can completely change the look of your apartment. Try out different configurations until you find the one that maximizes your space and functionality. Remember, don’t be afraid to get rid of pieces that no longer serve a purpose. Holding on to items you don’t need will only clutter up your space!

Organize Your Space

A cluttered apartment can feel chaotic and stressful. Do some post spring cleaning and organize your space with a system that works for you. Having your space organized can also completely change its look and will create a calm and relaxing environment for you to enjoy. Don’t underestimate the power of a good freshening up! A deep clean can be a great way to get your space ready for the upcoming season.

Add in New Décor

Adding in a new pop of color can go a long way in changing the vibe of your apartment. Pick up some new throw pillows, an accent blanket, or a new colorful rug to put some more of your personality into your space.

Change Your Lighting

Lighting can make a huge difference in the mood and ambience of your apartment. Consider replacing your harsh overhead lights with softer, warmer bulbs, or adding in some table or floor lamps so you don’t need overhead lighting. Consider adding renter-friendly curtains to your windows or glass doors. Curtains and drapes can help to control the light and add an extra touch of warmth to your room.
