How to Stay Away From the “College Apartment” Look


Do you feel like you’re ready to distance yourself from that collegiate apartment vibe that seemingly everyone doing their undergrad appears to have? I’m not sure where these visual guidelines exist in print, but they certainly exist in practice. Maybe it’s due to the sidewalk poster sales on campuses and what’s readily available within walking distance. Either way, there eventually comes a time when you’re feeling over the dorm room look. There are some simple ways you can avoid it and embrace a more mature, but still fun feel in your apartment.

Instead of posters taped to the wall, try posters in poster frames It’s perfectly ok to like your posters, but adding the frame gives them a more finished look on the wall. Poster frames are relatively inexpensive and readily available at craft stores like Michaels and Hobby Lobby as well. Real art work always looks more sophisticated, but is much more expensive. However, if you have friends in the art department see if you can buy a piece that they may be happy to part with for a reasonable price.

Instead of lining liquor bottles up above your kitchen cabinets, try different colored glass vases It sound old lady-ish but it’s actually quite chic – case in point, the amazing look of rainbow colored glass in Elsie Larson’s (A Beautiful Mess) home. If you’re not feeling the colored glass, potted plants that don’t need much sunlight also look great on top of cabinets.

If you have a hand-me-down couch that’s seen better days, try a slipcover and a few throw pillows to spruce it up There’s nothing wrong with using furniture that’s been handed down a couple of times. I’m all about reusing things that aren’t ready to be thrown out yet and sometimes they aren’t exactly what we want, but there are ways to improve on an oldie. So give the old couch a thorough cleaning and check out some fun slipcovers. There’s a whole world of throw pillows out there, including basically anything you could ever want on a pillow on Society6’s website.

Consider your guests One of the main differences between a college apartment and a professional person’s apartment is not having the things a guest might expect – so check on your soap, hand towels, tissues, and all that. The details can make the biggest difference!
