We wouldn’t encourage you to bring a lot of your personal stuff because it would seem misplaced in this unfamiliar environment and can be surprisingly upsetting. Limit it to your favorite books, a blanket, your favorite coffee mug and a few personal pictures.
Buy yourself a generous set of bedding. Nice and cozy sheets and a new extra pillow in your favorite colour can do wonders when trying to make the apartment homey.
Invest in a small plant, a great and inexpensive way to add a splash of colour to your surroundings and brings life to your four walls.
Choose relaxing or familiar scents that offer a unique way to personalize your apartment. Scents are known to trigger memories and make people feel more at ease. Diffuse your chosen scent by using room sprays or candles or your favorite detergent.
Be that as it may, Dustin Figge, the founder of The Homelike, an online platform for furnished apartments, suggests that it is important to focus on rewarding tasks during your temporary stay. For instance reading the books you always wanted to read, or joining a sports team or discovering the city and truly making an experience out of your stay will only bring you closer to your apartment. You connect to the apartment with memories where you read that, or saw this, or experienced that, which, in the end, will make you feel more at home than any other object you can buy.
