Transform Your Space with These Apartment-Friendly DIY Ideas

Elevating the look of your apartment doesn’t have to be time-intensive or expensive. There is a myriad of simple things you can do to change the look of your place, with little time or effort.

Here are a few apartment-friendly DIY ideas you can complete in our Minneapolis apartments to make your space feel more like your own.  

Light up your kitchen

If you spend a lot of time in your kitchen, making your cooking space more attractive and functional is a great place to begin. You can easily brighten the area with a few simple changes. 

If your kitchen is equipped with a window, potted herbs create a homey feel, as well as tasty additions to home cooking.  You can also change the lighting by switching the bulbs and replacing them with ones of different colors or higher lumens. Or, consider adding under-cabinet task lighting; many companies now make removable cabinet lighting that’s easy to install (and remove). Most of all, get creative with the space you have by creating multi-task areas or adding dual-function pieces (i.e. adding baskets on top of kitchen cabinets for additional, hidden storage).

Be shelf savvy 

Adding additional shelves gives you more space to keep your books, utensils, art collection, and other items. If you are struggling with storage space, this hack can go a long way in solving your problem.

Adding shelves in the kitchen can free up valuable counter space. In the entryway, shelves with pegs are great for adding additional storage or decorative space, as well as an area to hang coats and bags. Adding shelving to your place is the epitome of form plus function!

Dress your walls  

If you’re not familiar with vinyl wall decals, now is the time to get acquainted. Wall decals can transform the look of a room, are relatively inexpensive and, most importantly, are removable. The best options are wall-size murals and artistic motifs since they add color and texture to an otherwise bland room space.

Now that you have a few ideas for making your apartment feel like home, start planning on relaxing in your Minneapolis apartment space! For more information about joining the 4Marq community, contact us today.
