Three great tips for improving your apartment


Apartment living brings about its fair share of conveniences, but obviously the smaller space can also bring about certain limitations.

However, adopting a few small measures, detailed below, you can negate these and liven up your apartment to have it feeling like the warm home you want.

A splash of green

Greenery is a quick and effective way to add colour to your home, whilst also providing a constant source of oxygen. There are many different plants that live well indoors, that need little maintenance, and in many cases, require little watering. If space permits, and even better if you have a balcony, try growing herbs and flowers as they will add fantastic colour and aromas to your apartment – they will also save you a few dollars down the grocers.

While indoor plants can have you breathing in more oxygen, even with a generous amount of them there is a good chance that the air in your apartment, especially during the colder months, can become dry and stale. However, new technology provides the ability to control the moisture within your apartment, whilst providing a great form of décor for the home.

An air of perfection

A new breed of extremely stylish humidifiers release moisture into the air which will stops you breathing in harsh, dry air. The moisture provided by humidifiers also helps in prolonging wooden flooring, furniture, artwork and books.

Bring in the light

The addition of mirrors is also a valuable way of livening up your apartment. By simply placing a reflective surface beside a window with natural light, it will bring more light inside. The room immediately appears larger as the expanse of the exterior is brought inside.
