Transitioning from a college student to a functioning adult can be difficult, especially when it comes to your living space. You probably settled for a cheap throw rug, a few posters, and some festive Christmas lights for your college dorm. However, as you start to search for your first apartment or home, it’s important to decorate it appropriately. We have some tips and tricks on how you can achieve a mature home décor that will reflect your personality, along with your age. Consider a Bar Cart Adding a bar cart might sound too good to be true, but an elegant bar cart can help mature a space. Ditch the mini fridge, invest in some expensive liquor and a few coasters, and hold a true cocktail hour from the comfort of your own home. A bar cart indicates that you still love to have fun but you’re doing your best to match your space to your age. A bar cart is the perfect touch when entertaining guests and both friends and family can enjoy it. Swap Out Old Décor You might have had a few décor pieces in your college dorm, but it probably all came from the “dorm” section of a department store. As you age, it’s important to invest in décor that will last and serve a long-term purpose. Invest in throw pillows, seating, wall art, and a quality throw rug. The mismatched stuff that you settled for as a college student likely won’t contribute to your home now. Consider Going Green You might be hesitant to incorporate some fresh greenery into your space. Not everyone has a green thumb and that’s OK. If you’re confident in your ability to care for plant life, purchase some easy-to-handle plants and put them around your home. If you know that you won’t be able to keep a cactus alive, consider purchasing some fake flowers or succulents that will add a splash of life to your space. One more thing: Make sure you are considering the details of your space and how they present. Make sure to find a place for everything and keep your home free from clutter for a home that will present clean and mature. Looking for fine furniture and interior design service?
