Tips for Decorating Your Rental Home Without Breaking the Rules

Home is very close to our heart, irrespective of whether it is rented or own. The décor of our home is a reflection of our personality. Although we are free to make any change if we own the property, there are usually many restrictions when it comes to a rented home. Most of the landlords do not allow any permanent changes to be made in their property.

Here are some simple ideas that can be used to decorate a rented property without annoying the landlord.

Invest in Decorative Lights – Buy some beatiful lamps that can be placed in the corner of the room. You can make it a focal point of the room as well and see the difference it makes to the room.

Transform the Walls – Make your home more inviting by adding a dash of colour on the walls. Consult your landlord before painting the walls and go ahead if he agrees; if not, then you can hang some colourful fabric or rug instead. Removable wall paper is another option to go with. It can instantly elevate your home and can be removed if required later. Peel and stick wall papers are available in various colours and designs to suit every taste.

Create Aesthetic Layers – Think of the available space as layers and build it up with cushions, rugs, textiles, pictures, plants and lighting etc. Soft furnishings like rugs and cushions add a class to the space. If you are confused about where to start, throw a colourful rug and then start collecting smaller articles to go with it.

Stylish Storage – Your bedroom and bathroom can do with a smart storage basket that looks very stylish. Besides hiding unwanted clutter, they give a certain character to the place. Additionally, you can rearrange your furniture or buy multi-functional furniture to maximise space.

Buy Houseplants – Indoor plants can brighten up a place and make it more lively. For example, a rubber tree or a Ficus tree can add height to bare corners. A potted Basil or Rosemary plant is a valuable addition to your kitchen.

Maximize Wall Art: Utilize picture hooks or adhesive strips to hang artwork or photo frames, creating a gallery wall without damaging the walls.

With a little creativity and these simple tips, you can turn your rental into a stylish and welcoming sanctuary.
