St. Petersburg apartments can be a great place to come home to at the end of a long day and just relax, being encompassed by a feeling of complete coziness. However, that all depends on how you decorate your St. Pete apartment. No one wants to live in an apartment that feels cramped and cluttered. Don't be worried though, there are plenty of different ways that are cheap and easy to quickly transform your cramped and cluttered St. Pete apartment into a cozy little hideout from the world.
One of the most important steps when transforming your St. Petersburg apartment from cluttered to cozy is keeping storage in mind. The more you have everyday things just lying around the more cramped your apartment will feel. There are plenty of cheap and efficient storage options you can work into the décor of your home. Consider flat storage bins that you can slide under beds and/or couches. They're perfect for storing jackets in the summer time or extra blankets, shoes, etc. Wall shelves are also a great storage option. You can use wall shelves to store books, movies, or CDs in your living room. You can even decorate the wall shelves to suit your tastes. Storage can be everything when it comes to making your home feel cozy versus cramped. I definitely advise you to consider investing in a few different storage options. You'll find your St. Pete apartment can quickly revert to cozy this way.
Adding color is another easy step to making your apartment feel cozier. If you surround yourself with colors that your love, whether on your walls, throw pillows, couches, or blankets you'll find that a little bit of color can greatly improve the atmosphere in your apartment. However, if you're considering painting your walls it's always important to check with your landlord first to make sure it's okay. If your landlord doesn't want you painting the walls, not to fret, there are plenty of other options you can take to add some color to your walls. Consider hanging pictures of people or places that you love on your walls. There are also tons of removable wall paper options you can invest in and cover your walls with. Even a brightly colored throw blanket draped over your couch can add a pop of color that makes the whole room brighten a bit.
St. Petersburg apartments are the perfect place to come home to and spend a cozy evening on the couch. Just keep in mind that small doesn't always have to mean cramped. Cozy can be a great feeling and it's not too hard to capture that feeling as long as you follow a few simple steps. Once you've completed those steps you should be on your way to cozy living in no time and it doesn't have to cost a lot of money, or take too much effort to accomplish!
