Making the Most Out of a 785sqft Rental Apartment

In an era of rising prices and stagnant salaries, buying a house becomes a difficult task, but it does not mean that you do not have the right to own a "home". Even if you live in a rental apartment, you can redecorate it into a place that feels homely to you.

Danila, who lives in Pirkanmaa, Finland, lives in a modest leased space like most of us. Although only 785 sq feet in size, combined with the limitation that she cannot change the layout or use fixed furniture, she managed to use movable furniture to create an elegant atmosphere with seasonal changes throughout the year.


Upon entering Danila's home, one will immediately feel a relaxed and cosy atmosphere. Be it the living room, dining space or bedroom; she uses natural colours as the primary colour palette. Grey walls are paired with earth-tone furniture, and the modern and straightforward elements give the entire space a consistent, friendly and pleasing appearance.


Danila tries to keep large objects simple and clean, but small decorative objects must be unique and eye-catching, such as lamps, flowers, stationery or ceramics. This is so that the overall space reflects a sense of harmony, only revealing details of her discerning taste in layers.


Furniture is usually fixed and unchanged in a home, but you can use a small technique to change the style of the entire house. For example, changing the sofa cover to a different colour, mixing and matching the dining chairs or switching cushion covers are easy, low-cost ways to adapt the style of your home according to the seasons if you please.


In addition to the decor, storage is also a crucial aspect of creating a neat home. All of Danila's cooking materials are placed in the same container, and the cups and pans are also categorised according to size, shape and colour so that all objects can be seen clearly without clutter.
