Did you know that redecorating your space can be good for your mental health? That's right, that urge to decorate and change things up might actually help you!

If you've just moved into a new apartment, you have the fantastic opportunity to decorate from scratch. But how do you decorate luxury apartments anyway? Let's talk about it.

Read on to learn a few of our favorite apartment decorating tips.

1. Don't Underestimate the Power of Lighting

Too many people move into their luxury living apartments and resign themselves to only using the light fixtures that are already there. While the lights inside Morgan Ranch apartment homes are more than bright enough to keep your home well-lit, you should incorporate some of your own lights as well to make the place your own.

You can even replace some overhead light fixtures as long as you keep the original fixtures and put them back when you plan on moving out. Be careful when you do this.

It's easier to bring in external light fixtures, like lamps. Place them strategically to impact the "mood" of each room. Lighting makes a huge difference!

You should also consider your lightbulbs. If you want a warm and cozy vibe in your luxury apartment, you will want warmer-toned lightbulbs. For a bright and modern look, you'll want cooler and brighter lightbulbs.

You can also think outside of the box and pick colorful lightbulbs or even hang something unique, like string lights. They're not just for the holidays! They can add great ambiance.

2. Emphasize Natural Light

Speaking of light, you should try making the most of the ample natural light in your luxury apartment home.

Natural light is good for your mental health. It will also save you money on your monthly energy bill and it can make your home feel cheerier. Getting enough light in an apartment can be a challenge, but there are a few things you can do to make it better.

First, use sheer curtains during the day instead of blocking the windows with blinds. You still get privacy from the curtains, but the light will be able to shine through with a gentle glow.

Use mirrors and other shiny surfaces to reflect light around the room. Mirrors make homes look brighter (and they have the added benefit of making a space look larger, which is great when you're living in an apartment).

Do your best to avoid blocking windows with furniture. If you must put furniture in front of the window, use furniture that sits below the window or that doesn't cover too much of it.

3. Use Greenery for a Pop of Color

The indoor gardening trend doesn't seem to be going away anytime soon. More and more people are choosing the "plant parent" lifestyle, and for a good reason. Not only is gardening good for your mental health, but it also gives you some living decorations for your home.

Choose plants that are easy to care for indoors. Luckily in California, you can put your plants outside on the balcony or patio whenever you like due to the great weather, but you should remember that your plants will be spending most of their time indoors.

Large plants, like Monsteras, look great in a living room. Small succulent shelves are perfect for bedroom windowsills, and a small herb garden is both functional and decorative in the kitchen.

Plants make a home seem fresher and brighter, and they won't go out of style.

4. Choose a Style that Works for You

Speaking of style, what style do you want for your home?

Now, you don't need to pick one cohesive style for your apartment if you don't want to. If multiple family members or friends live together, you can all express your own styles in your bedrooms. Most people, however, choose to use one style throughout their homes.

Are you a serious minimalist? Minimalism looks fantastic in luxury apartment buildings. Apartments tend to call for less "stuff" around the home, so adopting a minimalist lifestyle is functional.

Stick to a monochrome color scheme, preferably in black, gray, or white. You can use pops of color and metal for accessories, like throw blankets and pillows on the couch.

Are you a maximalist? Apartments are cozy enough that it's easy to make them look crowded, but for a maximalist, this is a huge plus! You want to layer patterns and colors together until your home feels cozy. Vintage furniture looks great in a maximalist space.

These are just two examples of popular styles for your home. You can go for an art deco look, mid-century modern, and so much more.

5. Use Vertical Space

Too many people forget the value of vertical space in their homes, especially in apartments, because they don't want to damage the walls. You don't need to damage the walls to use all of that valuable space, however.

Tall bookshelves make fantastic room dividers, and they let you decorate high up. Fill them with your favorite books and room accessories to liven up your space.

You can also add things to your wall to an extent. Check your lease for what is and is not allowed, but hanging prints, photos, and even light shelves is generally fine.

This will open up a whole new dimension for your decorations.
