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.
