Give Your Solterra Apartment a Spring Refresh

As much as a living space reflects personal tastes and comforts, it can begin to feel a bit tired over time and may need a bit of an update.

As much as a living space reflects personal tastes and comforts, it can begin to feel a bit tired over time and may need a bit of an update. Your beloved space can easily be spruced up with little changes that make a large impact. Is your senior living apartment uniquely you? Do you feel at rest in your home? If not, now is the time to give your Solterra apartment a spring refresh.

Reduce Clutter

Over time, it’s easy to accumulate too much. One of the largest transformations to your space can be to simply clean out items no longer needed. Spend some time going through your belongings and donate or throw out any unused, unwanted, or duplicate items. This will leave room to display the items you love and quicker access to what you need.

Once you have sorted through your belongings, you can easily store and organize anything not on display. That way, every item has a “home” in your apartment, keeping countertops clear from unwanted clutter.

Add Houseplants

Plants thrive during the spring, making them a beautiful accessory to your home. Add a few houseplants to each room to freshen up your living space. Add color to your space with a plant that blooms so you can enjoy fresh flowers every day. For an added bonus, choose a plant with a fragrant bloom. Enjoy the outdoors from the comforts of your own home.

Redecorate Shelving

Freshen up Solterra apartments by restyling your shelves. If you have any items you love tucked away in drawers, bring them out and display them on a shelf or countertop.

You can also change the look by simply rearranging what you already have. Pull out your favorite books and display them with a keepsake resting on top. Collect like items from around your apartment and group them together, making a display. It’s an opportunity to look at your belongings with fresh eyes, giving them new life.

However you choose to decorate, consider choosing Solterra Senior Living for your senior living apartment. Our communities provide safe, compassionate, and quality care in a beautiful setting. We are committed to maximizing the quality of life for our residents so they can live well.

Switch Out Linens

An easy update is simply switching out linens. Try a new pattern or color you love. This can include your bedding, towels, or even a small area rug or bathmat. Choose a linen or two to switch, and your apartment has an instant update.

Add Art

If you’re looking for a bigger change, add artwork for a dramatic effect. Anything can become art if you frame it or display it in a shadow box. Take your favorite photos, trinkets, letters or postcards, artist prints, art from grandkids, and frame them. Looking for an even easier solution? Keep the frames you already have hung and switch out the art with a new print.

With a few quick and easy tweaks, your space will have the boost it needs to feel new again.
