So it’s about time for you to transform your apartment from a bachelor pad to an adult pad (#adulting). If you need some tips and pointers on how to make your apartment evolve as you do, we have just the info for you!
First things first, you probably think you don’t need an overwhelming amount of lamps and lighting. While it’s true that you don’t need to be blinding people with your beams, adding more lighting to your apartment not only brightens the place up, but also gives it some comfort and a homey feel. Having just one overhead light gives the space a kind of dull grey vibe that isn’t really inviting.
Add Some Culture
Add some great art pieces to your place. No, we’re not talking about posters, but rather some trendy pieces that fit with the aesthetic you’re going for. It doesn’t have to be too pricey or too fancy; just something to add a little culture to the place. Nothing says #adulting like some nice art.
Add Some Seating
Adding more seats to your place not only makes it more welcoming, but also makes it easy to host guests.
However, adding more seats, whether it be chairs or couches, doesn’t mean it needs to take up a whole lot of space and look jam-packed. Instead, you could place some nice chairs around a coffee table. You could also buy one or two two-seater couches to create space and seats for when you have guests around.
Couches will also add variety to your place, and while you’re at it with the couch shopping, be sure to purchase some throw pillows, which make great decorations.
And Finally, Get Some Good Aromas Going
The final touch to transform your bachelor pad into a real adult home is a signature scent. Don’t you love walking into a place that smells fresh? Adding an appealing scent to your place is a good finishing touch.
You don’t have to invest in candles, flowers, air purifiers, room sprays, deodorizers, and humidifiers, choose whichever ones work for you and get to it.
If you don’t want to invest in a specific scent, there are plants that absorb odor or make your home smell good. Having a plant (even a zero-maintenance one) suggests that you’re responsible and nurturing.
So there you have it, a few great tips to help you transform your bachelor pad into an adult apartment. Good luck with the #adulting!
