So, you’ve finally unpacked, put away your clothes, and set up your study space. Now it’s finally time to decorate your room! Sprucing up your new living space to match your style is
one of the most fun things about going away for school, so you’re probably excited to get started. RISE at Riverfront Crossings is excited for you, too, and we’ve compiled a list of interesting and inexpensive room decorating ideas to make your apartment shine.
Invest in a Succulent
Succulents are desert plants that retain water particularly well, making them an ideal, low-maintenance way to add some greenery to your room. There are all kinds of succulents, ranging from colorful flowered ones like kalanchoes to simple, green, leafy ones like aloe vera. While most succulents are hardy, thrive indoors, and don’t need much watering, it’s important to do your research before purchasing one so you know what specific type of care your plant requires.
Try Electric Candles
Candles are a great way to add a touch of sophistication and coziness to your home. However, ordinary wax candles can be dangerous in a small indoor space – even if you think you’re keeping an eye on them. You can get the same effect with a safe, battery-powered candle without the risk or mess. Some of these flameless candles are even scented, so you can experiment with different aromas.
Experiment With Window Decals
Window decals are a simple and fun way to dress up your room and add personal flair with little-to-no effort. Static cling decals are easy to use and completely removable, so you won’t have to worry about lasting window damage. You can find all sorts of inexpensive options on Amazon, or try making your own for a fun activity with friends or roommates.
We hope these suggestions give you a great starting point to begin decorating your new apartment at RISE. For more information about what you can put in your room or for more ideas for things to do around town, be sure to check out our blog.
