Whether you are a student or working professional in Tallahassee, making your apartment feel like home and cozy is great for your soul. Coming home to a space that feels like you, where you can truly relax and recharge, will help all aspects of your life, and nothing helps make your space feel like home than adding some of your personality to your Tallahassee apartment.

Adding personality to your place doesn't have to cost much money, which is especially important on a college student's budget or if you are just starting out in your career. Home Goods in the Killearn area offers a wide variety of inexpensive home décor, bedding, furnishings and more items to decorate your apartment. Target and Walmart are good stores to check out for various household items also. Vintage stores also make great options for those on a budget and looking for something unique. Buying second-hand also helps keep things out of the landfill and help our planet for those looking into green options.

Before you head out to shop, the first step should be reviewing guidelines on what you can add to your apartment. If you have Tallahassee roommates, discuss any additions to your shared apartment. If you live in a Tally one-bedroom apartment, you should check with your apartment complex office staff before you add anything. Can you add wall art, paint, or décor that neighbors can view from the outside, such as a door wreath or porch decorations?

Once you know what you can do to add some personality to your Leon County housing, and some ideas of where to shop, let's talk about what to add! See below:

Command strips are helpful for many projects and are designed not to damage walls or paint. You can keep the same art throughout the year or change it for the seasons or holidays.

If your Tallahassee apartment is furnished, you can add personality with your bedding in your favorite color or designs.

In the living space, throw pillows and blankets bring a little pop of color and uniqueness to your area and can be easily switched up throughout the year.

Like bedding and throw pillows, kitchen and bath towels can add a sense of coziness and personality to your space. They are inexpensive so that you can have multiple sets.

Showcase things you like as you greet your visitors. Add a door wreath or sign to celebrate the holidays or seasons and help you stand out from the neighbors.

Indoor and outdoor plants are great ways to make a place feel like home. A variety of options require little to no fuss if you are not gifted with a green thumb. Add some on your apartment porch for extra curb appeal or on your patio or balcony.

Nothing says home like certain smells. Candles are a great way to bring color into your apartment and scents that remind you of home. Bath & Body Works in the Governor's Square Mall have a huge array of candles in a variety of sizes to fit any space.
