Over the years the your-space team has seen many residents truly transform their living space without breaking the bank. If you want to know how to feel at home no matter where you choose to stay and the prospect of creating a more homely vibe in your PG/hostel room excites you, consider doing the following:

Add Personal Decor

Use non-permanent decor items such as wall art, removable decals, or framed prints to personalise the walls of your space. You can choose pieces that reflect your interests, hobbies, or favourite colours to make the space feel truly yours. We recommend using scotch tape to create photo collages of your favourite people and places and even memories so that cleaning up is effortless when you finally move out or if you want to switch out a few photos every now and then. You can also consider making a mood board or a vision board to inspire yourself on the regular, manifest the life that you want and keep your eyes on the prize

Layer Rugs

Instead of moving around furniture, layering rugs on the floor can add warmth and style to your living space. Choose rugs in different sizes, colours, and patterns to create a cosy and inviting atmosphere. You can try to stick to a certain colour scheme to make your room look more coordinated or go for a more eclectic vibe if you don't want to commit to one aesthetic for the entire duration of your stay.

Bring in Potted Plants

Indoor plants in pots can be a great way to add a touch of nature to your rented apartment without making any permanent changes. Here are some common air-purifying indoor plants that are easily available:

  • Spider Plant: It is known for its cascading foliage and air-purifying properties. It filters formaldehyde and xylene from the air and is easy to care for, making it suitable for beginners.
  • Aloe Vera: It filters toxins like formaldehyde and benzene from the air. It is easy to care for and can thrive in a variety of indoor conditions.
  • Snake Plant: It filters formaldehyde, benzene, and xylene from the air. It has tall, upright leaves and can tolerate low light conditions, making it ideal for indoor spaces.
  • Peace Lily: It is known for its beautiful white flowers and its ability to remove airborne toxins like formaldehyde, benzene, and trichloroethylene. It prefers low to moderate light conditions and thrives in humid environments.
  • Areca Palm: It filters formaldehyde, xylene, and toluene from the air. It requires bright, indirect light and regular watering.
  • Golden Pothos: A trailing vine that filters formaldehyde, benzene, and xylene from the air. It can thrive in a variety of light conditions, including low light.
  • Bamboo Palm, Rubber Plant: It filters formaldehyde, benzene, and trichloroethylene from the air. It prefers bright, indirect light and moderate watering.

These are just a few examples of air-purifying indoor plants that are easily available in India. Remember to choose plants that are suitable for the lighting and environmental conditions of your specific indoor space, and always provide proper care and maintenance to help them thrive and purify the air in your home. You can place them in various corners of your apartment to liven up the space.

Upgrade Lighting

Consider adding table lamps or floor lamps to improve the lighting in your room. Choose lamps with unique designs or interesting shades and fun shadows to add a personal touch and create a warm and inviting ambience.

Use Temporary Storage Solutions

Opt for temporary storage solutions such as freestanding shelves, bookcases, or storage cubes that can be easily moved and do not require drilling or mounting. These can help you keep your belongings organised, add a sense of neatness and spaciousness to your room, and are easy to remove when you move out.

Dress Windows with Temporary Coverings

Use temporary window coverings such as peel-and-stick window films, temporary blinds, or tension rod curtains that do not require drilling or permanent fixtures. These can add privacy and style to your room without damaging the interiors.

Display Collections on Shelves

Use shelves and racks to display your collections of books, mugs, your outfits or other items that are meaningful to you. This adds character and a personal touch to your space and creates a focal point in the room. Nothing creates that edgy-lived-in vibe like a rolling clothing/garment rack!

Rearrange Furniture within Permissible Limits

While moving around furniture may not be feasible in many PGs and Hostels, you can still rearrange furniture within the permissible limits set by your building. Experiment with different furniture arrangements to create a layout that works best for you without causing any damage or violating the rental agreement.

Use Soft Furnishings

Add soft furnishings such as cushions, throws, and rugs to create a cosy and comfortable atmosphere in your room. These can be easily replaced or taken with you when you move out, making them a great way to personalise your space without making permanent changes. Trust us when we say, you must create a little space for you to melt into at the end of a heavy-duty day! So, put on your designer hat, embrace the fun, and create a living space that's as unique as you are! Happy decorating!
