The new year provides all of us with a fresh start and a chance to commit to changes and what better way to start the year than with an apartment redecoration! It’s the perfect opportunity to spruce up your space.

Whether you rent or own, there are tons of options as to how you can change your space and make a big impact in your life. Small changes can make your space more functional, cozy, and aesthetically pleasing. If you’re interested in learning about the ways in which you can change your place, follow along!

1. Redecorating Your Kitchen or Office Space With a Pegboard

A pegboard is a great way to change a space by investing very little. With very little effort, you could transform a blank wall in your kitchen or office to a productive and beautifully displayed space.

Create a hanging system for pots, pans, and lids to display your very best kitchen tools. Hang some plants or other decorations on a wall next to your desk. It’s easy to install and the only other thing you’ll need are hooks from which to hang your items.

2. Temporary Wallpaper

This is an easy and non-permanent way to try something new. If you’ve always wanted to experiment with a wall in your apartment, now’s the time! Just find the appropriate wallpaper for your walls and you’re done!

If you’ve been wanting to try out a wooden wall, for instance, you could use a wallpaper for that. The results are stunning, especially if other elements in your home feature the same wooden look.

3. Install a Chandelier

This is one of the options on this list where you can splurge or save, depending on what you prefer. You could install an expensive crystal chandelier if your budget allows it, or a smaller, glass chandelier to achieve the look.

Either way, a chandelier can transform a space and instantly make it look classy and upscale.

4. Change Your Knobs

This is a very simple DIY project that can be done by anyone. All you need is to hit up a store and pick out some cool knobs for your kitchen cabinets, drawers, or doors. Installing them is as easy as pie and you’ll be left with something that looks instantly more polished and classy.

5. Adopt a Distraction Minimizing Environment

If you work from home, chances are you get distracted easily by your comfy couch, your magazines or books, or your very comfy bed. If you want to become a more productive person this year, consider minimizing the distractions in your apartment.

A clean, modern, minimalistic esthetic can help improve your productivity. You’ll have fewer things around to distract you and more time to work. Just check out this beautiful minimalistic apartment!
