Decorating your Rental Home – Making it your own!

How to Decorate a Rental Home

Read on to discover warm and cozy rental home decorating ideas to add style to your space. If you are renting a home whether it be long term or short term, it is important to make it your own by decorating your rental home with your own pizazz and spark!

Decorating your rental home might be tricky. First, you don’t want to risk losing your deposit and second, your landlord may not allow any permanent changes to be made on their property. However, some landlords are happy to allow the rooms of rental homes to be repainted or decorated as you wish by making the space your own.

Use these tips add personality to your rented home and live in a space you love.

Invest in Painting

If your landlord is happy with you repainting the rooms, then personalize your space with colorful hues to make your home desirable and fresh. Paint windows, walls, and doors but don’t touch natural wood.  Crown molding and baseboards normally require a glossy finish, and repainting them to a different color may not be an easy task.

Accessorize your home

Spruce up your rooms with essential accents like lighting, rugs, potted plants, curtains, and attractive new hardware for a more personal look. Substitute the traditional lamp with one that twinkles a bit more brightly. The good thing about these accessories is that they can easily be removed when you vacate the home.

Use peel-away Wallpapers

Try alternative wallpaper decorations like decals and paint stencils that make bold imaginative statements and are easy to remove. You can also try wallpapered panels, in which you add wallpaper to a plywood panel and lean them against the wall.Decorating your Rental Home

Accentuate your storage

Create storage by maximizing the space with a shelf. Use the shelf to line books, hats, shoes or clothing accessories to create additional space for other necessities. Maximize on unused corridors by building a corner table or liquor cart to showcase your valuable items.

Decorating your rental home can be fun, exciting and also a bit exhausting. Take your time and think about if it will be a permanent fixture to the space or a temporary thing that can be removed when you leave. Most of all, if you have questions or concerns – talk to your property manager or landlord first to protect yourself and your security deposit.
