A career as a doctor is a huge commitment, as you're offering services and treatments to help your patients feel better. This is why you want to decorate your apartment in a way that works for your on-the-go lifestyle. The following list features several apartment decorating ideas for doctors. But First, Coffee life as a doctor can mean early mornings or late nights, so a hot cup of coffee may be an essential in your apartment. Why not create a coffee station on your kitchen counter? It can include everything you need to kick start your day, such as a coffee maker, mugs and condiments. One idea is to invest in a coffee condiment caddy for your sugar, sweetener and coffee mugs. If you'd rather add more warmth, consider a wooden tray instead of a caddy. Decorate your space with a wooden sign with the popular saying, “But First, Coffee.” On-The-Go Entryway If you're a surgeon, you may find yourself heading out the door at a moment's notice. The last thing you want to do is look for your bag, shoes or keys, so it's important to decorate your entrance in a way that gets you out the door quickly. One idea is a bench with storage underneath for your shoes and doctor's bag. On the wall is a self-adhesive hook for your outerwear, as well as a store-bought or DIY key hanger for your keys. This way, you can get ready and head out the door as soon as possible. Career-Oriented Decor Another idea is to decorate your apartment to reflect your career. If you practice family medicine, you may want warm decor, such as throw pillows and floral prints, to add a bit of coziness to your space. As a surgeon, you're going to want a clean space so you can move quickly in emergency situations, but you may also want a dimmer light and greenery in your bedroom to help you relax after a long day. If you're a pediatrician, consider vibrant colors and flower arrangements to help you relate to your young patients. Regardless of which medical path you have chosen, you want to create an apartment that is relaxing and motivating, but allows you to head out the door as needed.
