This easy apartment upgrade is so incredibly simple, you’ll wonder why I’m even mentioning it. But I swear to you, whenever I see these they just add something special to rooms, they make them feel more customized and just fancier. Plus, it’s something that I didn’t really think of when I first moved in to my own apartment. So, what is it?

Install new, decorative switch plates!

Huh? You might be thinking I’m crazy here, but YES. Decorative switch plates are the answer! You’ll be able to do this right away and will give your bathroom or any other room in your apartment or even your own home, that extra special pop.

Why You Should Install Decorative Switch Plates?

  • You can always take them off!
  • They are available in many styles and colors to suit your taste
  • Easy to install and easy to remove
  • Take it with you, when you move (optional) 🙂
  • Give your room an instant polished look and feel that will set your apartment far apart from that basic rental look

When I think of all the fancy and exciting upgrades I want to do to my apartment to make it cozier and more stylish, I get a little nervous.

One of the main reasons is because, as an apartment dweller, I know this places isn’t my own. If you are in the same boat as me, and still living in an apartment, then you might already know this one tip, I’d really looove to feature yours too, so contact me here!

You don’t need to worry about the landlord holding back your deposit, because you can uninstall so easily and put it back to “normal.”

Although, I don’t really know why they would withhold your deposit when you are basically making the place better. But if you are concerned, then just use caution and remove them.
