5 EASY APARTMENT DECOR HACKS THAT WILL ADD BIG STYLE
Do you look at your apartment or small home and wish you could add some ‘oomph’ to it?
Maybe a little design or decor that’s easy to change-up or remove?
Or perhaps even create something that makes a big impact and is practical AND pretty?
Yes? Me, too!
When I first moved into my tiny studio apartment, I wanted to do LOTS of projects to add my personal style to my space.
You know… “make it mine”.
So today, we’re going to look at a few apartment decor solutions that actually have been added to My Wee Abode, and a few that are still in the works.
What Makes These Easy Apartment Decor Hacks Special?
These apartment workarounds are unique for a few reasons:
- First, and most importantly, these style solutions are removable or easily ‘changed-back’. For a rental home situation, you want to make sure to keep your landlord happy, and these simple apartment decor hacks will do just that!
- Adding these decor solutions is also practical! They ‘help’ to make your apartment, small home, or dorm easier and nicer to live in.
- They are affordable solutions. Let’s face it, most of us living in rental homes or small spaces tend to follow a budget-friendly lifestyle. 😉
- These tips for adding easy and practical style are translatable to any home, whether you own or rent, live in a big home or tiny house!

You, too, can have wallpaper in your apartment! Removable wallpaper is trending in a big way right now, and I don’t think it’s going out of style any time soon. Affordable, pretty, and easy, this apartment decor workaround is great for adding your own style to your home! Another sweet blogging buddy, Christene from Keys to Inspiration, shows you how to make this work in your home!
The reason I’m ‘hopeful’ about this decorating hack is that I have sampled removable wallpaper in My Wee Abode during the hot humid summer months of So Cal, and it didn’t stick for longer than a couple of days. So, I’m hoping to try it again with another type of hack. You’ll be the first to know if it works!
