A Guide to Decorating Your Independent Living Apartment

Independent Living | Moving Tips | Downsizing | Packing Tips | Senior Living Tips | Here For Myself

Choosing a senior living community and moving into your new apartment is an exciting endeavor. However, it’s also a significant change, and you may be missing your old home and the familiarity that came with it.

From decorating to organization, here are some ideas to make your new apartment feel like ”you” and reflect your personal style.

Display Personal Items

Although you may be downsizing from your old home, make sure to keep and display the items most important to you. Framed photos, your favorite mug, a handmade blanket or other pieces will add comfort and a sense of familiarity to your new space.

Be prepared to add new memories as well. For example, does your community have painting classes? Sign up for an event and create the next piece for your art collection.

Go At Your Own Pace

Take time to go through your possessions and decide what to keep. Include thoughtfully placed decorations to immediately make your apartment feel more relaxing and inviting.

If you have furniture you want to keep, but also don’t want to bring to your apartment, consider getting a storage unit. You may be downsizing, but that doesn’t mean you have to get rid of possessions you care about as you transition.

Experiment With Your New Space

As you settle into your new senior apartment, you may want to move furniture or update the space to reflect your evolving style. Take time to experiment with rearranging furniture and decorations to better suit your needs and optimize the space.

Design tip: While utilizing your current pieces is key, this is a new space — so you can have fun with trying new ideas to bring your apartment to life.

Get Community Assistance

When planning your move to a senior living community, be sure to ask about the support and maintenance they offer to help you get organized in your new home. Find out about available maintenance help your community provides to better understand what assistance is available and what (if anything) you may need to do on your own.

Leisure Living offers a wide range of services for its residents. Need help hanging a picture? Want some new paint on the walls? We can take care of that for you. Our maintenance team is available to support these types of requests and more.
