Sometimes, decorating a rented house stands in the way of how you really want your home to look like. Here are a few ideas that can help you make your rental feel like home:
Understand what you can and can’t do:
Ask the landlord for a clear yes or no list when it comes to major changes in the unit. Painting walls, changing ceiling lights, etc.… Once you have a clear idea of what you can and cannot do, you can start making changes the way you want to.
The use of accessories goes a long way, and just because you are a renter, doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t add your personal touch to the home. Think outside the box – use a rug on the wall, or use big throw pillows, for example.
Adding a hint of green is the easiest way to elevate the overall style of an apartment or villa. Choose your favorite type and add it to your décor. If you have an outdoor space, think about creating a small herb or plant garden.
Mirrors are also a great way to easily add a hint of style to any room, and plus, mirrors instantly make a room look bigger. Today, you have a number of shapes, styles and sizes to choose from that are beyond the conventional mirror.
Dress up the bathroom:
Most of us tend to ignore the bathrooms at home, but giving them just a bit of attention will upgrade the area into a cozy room. Adding things as simple as baskets, or installing shelfs, or even placing a mat on the floor will make it feel like a different room all together!
nothing makes a house a home like photos! You can choose from a number of ways to display them- frames across the house, or dedicating a wall to hang a collage. Whichever way you choose to do that, you’ll instantly feel the difference once you’ve added these photos.
Follow a theme:
One of the things you can do is to create a theme across the house – modern, vintage, art deco. Styling the home with a theme in mind can make it easier to stay consistent with the design elements and the overall décor.
Make it your own:
Adding your own personal touch is the easiest way to turn a house into a home. Small touches throughout different rooms will go a long way into making it feel just the way you want it to.
