Whether you're a lifelong tenant or are renting while searching for your dream home, it's important to make your living space feel like home. Here are nine things you can do to make your rented home your home sweet home.
Talk to your Landlord
Before starting decorating or making any lasting alterations, it's crucial to request your landlord's approval to avoid jeopardising your deposit.
Little Things can Make a Big Difference
Once your landlord has given you the green light, put together a list of affordable, non-permanent improvements that can enhance your living space.
Freshen Up with Paint
A fresh coat of paint is an inexpensive way to transform your rental property. Opt for neutral shades that brighten up the space, leaving it looking and feeling clean and renewed.
If you are unhappy with the flooring in your rental property consider investing in an oversized rug. Rugs can cover unattractive flooring beautifully without draining your budget, and you can take it with you when you move.
Infuse your personality into your rented home by accessorising with items like cushions, throws, mirrors, plants, and ornaments. This can help it to feel cosier and more like your own.
When traditional decorating is off-limits, try experimenting with peel-and-stick tiles and wallpaper that can be easily removed without causing any damage.
Hang Pictures with Command Picture Hooks
Hang your artwork using damage-free hanging strips that come off cleanly when it's time to move out.
Opt for Bookcases Over Shelves
Instead of putting up shelves that will leave holes in the wall when removed, use freestanding bookcases or shelves to store your belongings.
Revamp your living space with statement furniture. Consider a bed with an oversized headboard, a brightly coloured sofa, or eye-catching cabinets and side tables.
With just a few simple changes, you can personalise your rental property, making it feel like home.
