10 Tips for Making Your Senior Living Apartment Feel Like Home

For many, decorating a senior living apartment is one of the most fun parts of moving. From the moment a team member shows them around the community, they are likely picturing taking part in community activities and programs, chatting with new friends and neighbors and, ultimately, how they are going to customize their new apartment.

We’re here to help. By putting these tips into practice, it’ll only be a matter of time until you make your apartment feel just like home.

1 | Declutter

Making the move provides the opportunity to declutter, get rid of duplicate items, donate clothes you don’t wear, and give away any kitchen utensils you won’t need since you’ll most likely be dining in common areas.

2 | Organize

The more organized you are, the more likely you’ll know exactly where everything is, lessening the time it takes for you to become familiar with your new apartment. Strive to keep everything in its place.

3 | Add Photos and Other Memories

Pictures of family, friends, and personal experiences you’ve had are great to put on display. Consider showcasing sentimental pieces to remind you of those you love to make your space feel more like home.

4 | Decorate

Aside from your sentimental pieces, decorate with artwork that means something to you. Whether you have pieces that you’ve collected over the years or you create your own décor in an art class, these pieces can make your apartment’s personality pop.

5 | Get Multi-Functional Furniture

Multi-functional furniture creates more space. Consider purchasing an ottoman with storage, a sleeper sofa, or a coffee table that pulls up to a desk for snacking or playing games during game night.

6 | Hang Mirrors

Did you know that mirrors can enhance natural light while making the room feel bigger? This is a commonly used tool to brighten spaces.

7 | Evaluate Colors

Colors can transform a space. Bright color schemes can improve mood; blues and greens can have a healing effect; and light colors can brighten the space.

8 | Make Smart Swaps

If you have a large chair you love, you may need to find an alternative to fit a smaller space. If you need to upsize your furniture and love to host parties, maybe purchase more seating or a larger table.

9 | Decorate Outdoor Spaces

If your apartment has a patio or balcony, make it an oasis! Add some plants, seating, and lights to make your own personal getaway just outside your apartment.

10 | Bring the Outdoors In

If you don’t have an outdoor space, bring easy-to-care-for indoor plants inside.
