One of the best perks of renting a luxury apartment is the lifestyle. Resident’s everyday life can look like a retreat thanks to top-of-the-line amenities and high-end finishes. Just like any home, however, how a resident chooses to organize and decorate their unit will impact the overall experience they enjoy. We’ve put together 4 ways that luxury apartment-dwellers can create a relaxing retreat in their homes.


Curate your scent

The small things in a space often make the biggest difference. Smell is one of our strongest senses, and so it can play a big role in setting the tone for an area. For a relaxing environment, smells such as essential oils or floral scents can set the relaxing mood. Some people even enjoy the scent of freshly baked goods or pine trees. Finding the right smell to surround yourself with is one key step in curating a unique oasis to enjoy. A few easy ways to infuse your home with your chosen smell are through candles, plug-in scent boosters, room sprays, diffusers, or simply bringing the real deal into the space. There’s nothing as luxurious as walking through your welcoming front door to be greeted by your favorite scents.


Bring the outside in

Another key to establishing a zen apartment that you can relax in is including some greenery in your decor. Opt for air-cleansing house plants that are low-maintenance, and you’ll find yourself surrounded by calming, natural beauty. You might even consider growing a small kitchen herb garden on your countertop or windowsill. Finding ways to bring natural elements into your home will allow you to feel more at peace and in touch with the world around you, perfect for a relaxing retreat.


Furnish with soft textures

There’s no better way to relax than by sinking into warm and comfortable surroundings. Whether you prefer lounging on a couch or beanbag, cuddling up in a plush bed, or spreading out on a soft rug, it’s important that you have plenty of options to choose from. Including lots of blankets, pillows, and other soft furnishings can make a space feel more inviting and allow you to chill after a long day. Your space will feel more homey and inviting for both you and your guests when there are curtains, tapestries, and rugs softening up a stark room.


Consider the flow

Any home needs to be optimized for the people that live there. In order to fully relax and enjoy your apartment, you should be able to effortlessly find what you’re looking for when you need it. While general organization helps with this, it’s also important to consider the flow of your daily life. For example, a key drop station should be placed near the door, where you’ll need it. Your snacks could be in the kitchen, or in a bin by the couch where you tend to enjoy them. If shoes are a part of the outfit creation process, maybe they should live in your closet rather than by the front door. Considering ways to make your day as smooth as possible will contribute to a less stressful lifestyle, allowing you to focus on what matters and relax when you’re in your home.


Make your home your own

One of the best parts of living in a luxury apartment is that you can create a unit that is perfect for you, unique and customized to your needs and personality, while at the same time enjoying the benefits of state-of-the-art features. After a swim in the resort-style pool, it’s important to return to a relaxing home environment where you can recuperate from a day of fun in the sun. When you’re done with your morning workout in the gym, heading back to your apartment should be a relaxing endeavor so you can recover before your day starts. No matter what your lifestyle looks like, a luxury apartment complex is here to help add to your relaxing experience.
