Daytona apartments can be the absolute perfect place to call home. All it takes is a little color here, a touch of your personality there, and voila you have the perfect apartment that just screams you! Decorating your Daytona apartment doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg and it doesn’t have to consume all of your time either. By following a few simple tips and tricks your apartment should come together in no time. However, before you start any decorating you need to discuss plans with your landlord and make sure you’re not breaking any leasing agreements. Some communities don’t want you painting your walls, or covering up a certain amount of wall space. Once you’ve determined your limits as far as it comes to decorating you can begin your decorating adventure!

One of the first steps in decorating your Daytona apartment is adding some color. The most obvious (yet stylish) ways to do accomplish this is by painting your walls. You can choose a theme for each room, or just paint them colors that you love. If painting is out of the question for you then consider browsing online for some wall decals. You can find wall decals from numerous sources ranging from cute and decorative to practical. They offer wall decals that function as dry erase calendars, or chalkboard grocery lists and some that are just pretty flowers, or logos from your favorite sports team. Whatever you’re into, you’re bound to find some way to incorporate some color onto your walls. You could even paint an entire wall with chalkboard or whiteboard paint! Imagine the size that grocery list could be.

Color in your Daytona apartment of course doesn’t have to be strictly on the walls. Throw pillows, blankets, rugs, and more can all be used to add a pop of color to any room. In the winter months, keep a few colorful throw blankets tastefully draped over the couch for guests to use when they get chilly. You might even consider taking a trip to JoAnns and buying some fabric to make your own pillows or blankets! Do it yourself projects are not only fun but can definitely save you a couple of bucks here and there as well.

Other than adding color, I suggest you surround yourself with things you love. This could mean a bookshelf filled with books, CDs, or DVDs that you love. It could also mean surrounding yourself with pictures of your friends, family, and pets in your Daytona apartment. But you’ll notice that as soon as you surround yourself with things that you love your Daytona apartment will start to feel a lot more like a place you would call home.

Decorating your Daytona apartment doesn’t have to take all the time in the world, with a few quick adjustments you can turn your apartment into a home in little to no time. Add some color, things you love, and a few different organizational methods and you should be set!
