Nowadays, a lot of homeowners are deciding to invest in pre-furnished spaces rather than empty units. We can't really blame them—it's easier to dress up, more practical in the long run and it gives you bang for your buck. The only downside to these units? They can feel a little stiff or lacking in personality. To help you out, here are five easy ways to cozy it up: 

Living Area

Most semi-furnished living areas only have the basics: a couch, a coffee table, and a side table. Dress up a ho-hum sofa with a bevy of pillows in colors that pop out. Throw in an accent chair with lines and colors that contrast with the existing furniture. Incorporate decorative yet functional pieces, and use a rug to anchor the area. 

Dining Area 

Pinoys often buy a matching dining set, which looks too neat and formal. Keep the table and a couple of the existing chairs and throw in different types of chairs, stools or even a bench. In between meals, prettify the table with an attractive centerpiece. As a finishing touch, mount fab prints on the wall closest to the table. 

Bedroom 

Waking up to beautiful mornings is possible if your bedroom is beyond just bed and sheets. Inject prints and color through a couple of throw pillows and a striking bedspread. Add a small night table to hold a clock, some books, a lamp, your photos and other things you'd like to wake up to. 

Bathroom 

Even small bathrooms have room for personality. The key is in bringing in a couple of non-essentials with striking color or form—a curvy candlestick, a red wastebasket, twigs in all its sensual, organic glory—for a surefire, mini room impact. 

Kitchen 

When it comes to the cooking corner, you're usually only provided with the basics such as the range and a few utensils. Give the room a pop of color by adding a fruit basket or fresh blooms—these ideas will surely liven it up in an instant!
