7 Must-Have Accessories for Your Apartment

7 Must-Have Accessories for Your Apartment

Been settled in your apartment for a while but still feel like it’s missing a few key items? Just moved in and wondering what finishing touches will transform it into a home? It’s time for some new apartment décor.

Whether you’re living in a budget or luxury apartment, this list of accessories can spruce up your place and make things a lot easier. Read on to see which ones you already have and which you may need to run to the store and get!

  1. Living Room: Storage Ottoman

Don’t have an ottoman? You’re missing out! Not only does an ottoman provide covert, decorative storage that blends in beautifully with the rest of your living room, it also doubles as extra seating.

  1. Bedroom: Bench

This piece of furniture sits in front of the bed and provides seating when you don’t want to mess up your perfectly made bed. Some benches can also provide much-needed storage for your bedroom. The best part? It gives your bedroom a chic, modern twist.

  1. Dining or Living Room: Area Rug

A gorgeous area rug brings a pop of color and livens up any room in your apartment. Area rugs can also effectively distinguish your dining room from your living room in smaller apartments: Place one rug directly under your dining room table, and angle your couch, loveseat, armchair or other seating on the perimeter of another rug in the living room.

  1. Bedroom: Full-Length Mirror

Indulge your vain side and ensure you look good before that banquet or morning meeting. Instead of uncomfortably tiptoeing in front of your bathroom mirror, do yourself a solid and invest in a full-length mirror to make sure you look your best from head to toe.

  1. Entryway: Shoe Rack with Stackable Table

This piece of furniture can serve as an organizer for your shoes, mail, keys, purse, and jacket all in one. The table surface atop the shoe rack acts as the perfect place to set down items right after walking in.

  1. Living Room: Floor Lamp

Lighting is one of those things that often goes overlooked, but that says nothing of its importance. No one can properly see your well-decorated spot if they can’t actually see it. A powerful floor lamp brightens up your space effortlessly.

  1. A Conversation Piece

A vintage sculpture. An eclectic painting. Handmade pottery. These are the pieces that attract the eyes of guests and prompt the question, “Where’d you get this?” The aim is to spark conversation and give your space a unique touch.
