By age 27, over 90% of people have moved out of their parents’ place in favor of a more independent living situation.
While living away from mom and dad is a great way to gain some confidence, you’ll want to make sure your apartment reflects your newfound self-reliance.
At some point, it’s time to put childish things away and make your dwelling reflect your age. Here are some simple ways you can make your apartment bedroom feel more grown up.
Know When to Let Go
If you’re like most people, your younger years were spent collecting memorabilia from your favorite bands, movies, TV shows, and books. And while that framed Twilight poster may hold some good memories, it doesn’t exactly serve a purpose anymore.
As hard as it can be to say goodbye to some of your childhood items, it’s a necessary part of growing up.
Plus, you don’t need to get rid of anything. Only things that take up too much space or you don’t use. If you can’t bear to say goodbye to your collection of cat posters, remember that you can always put them in storage.
Give Your Apartment Bedroom a Cohesive Theme
With more space to work with, you can get to work on giving your bedroom a more adult feel. Start by coming up with a theme.
Coming up with a theme doesn’t need to be complicated. Just choose a color or style that you really enjoy and work from there to give your bedroom a more focused look.
Too many colors can be distracting and negate the purpose of cohesion, so try and stick to one main color.
Get a Better Bed
You spend about 1/3 of your life sleeping, so do so in style. As cool as that race car bed is, it’s time to upgrade to a more modern bed that suits your current life.
Don’t skimp on choosing a good bed, either. Pick something that’s going to last you several years.
Now that you have your bed in order and a great, adult-friendly theme picked out, it’s time for the fun part — decorating! Even if you have limited space, adding a few pieces of decor can liven your apartment up.
Start with furniture. Your furniture will ideally match your bedroom’s theme, so try and pick a similar color. Most of your furniture should be the same material, too, to further add to your room’s design.
Next, add a few practical pieces of bedroom decor.
A whiteboard calendar, for instance, is a great way to keep track of bills, work schedules, birthdays, and more without taking up a ton of space.
Of course, you’ll need a way to make sure you’re not late to work, so pick up a decent clock, too. Clocks are great decor as they’re equal parts decorative and practical.
Finally, invest in blackout curtains. You’ll thank us later.
