What are some tips for decorating my Melbourne apartment?

Melbourne apartments are a great place to personalize and call home. Living in an apartment that's not decorated at all can make you feel like you're not really living there, just staying there until you find your home. However, with a touch of your personality and the wonderful location of apartments near Melbourne you'll find yourself feeling at home in your new apartment in no time.

One of the most important steps that people tend to overlook is to unpack! I know that seems so obvious right? But the sheer number of people that don't completely unpack is quite shocking. When I say completely unpack I mean completely! You have that one box sitting on your bedroom floor unpacked don't you? Even one box can prevent your Melbourne apartment from feeling like home. Chances are, if you've been there for a while and still haven't unpacked then you might not even need the contents of that box. So throw them out! Seriously, just get rid of them. If you needed the items in the box you would have unpacked it a long time ago. Ugly cardboard boxes certainly don't qualify as a form of decorating.

Once you're all unpacked, start with the walls. If you want to paint them make sure you get the okay from your landlord first. Some Melbourne apartments might not allow you to paint your walls. If that's the case then look into removable wall paper. You can also purchase wall decals almost anywhere online. Pretty much anyone can find a wall decal that suits them. There are sports decals, flowers, quotes, and more and all of them are usually completely removable. Just cover your walls in things you love! Pictures of family and friends, shelves filled with your favorite music or books, trophies, certificates, and more. Once your walls say what you want about you, you can start the rest of the decorating process.

The next step I suggest taking in your Melbourne apartment is making it feel homey. This can easily be accomplished with a few throw pillows, rugs, and blankets. It doesn't have to cost you a fortune either! Hit up some local thrift shops or head on over to your local fabric store if you're feeling extra crafty and make some yourself! A little bit of color can go a long way in making your Melbourne apartment feel nice and cozy.

Decorating your apartment near Melbourne doesn't have to be a tedious or expensive task. There are numerous DIY projects that you can complete if you're feeling crafty that will add personality and color to your new home. Other than that just browse local thrift shops and clearance sales and you'll find that your home will easily come together! As long as you remember to surround yourself with things that you love your new apartment should feel like a home in no time.
