Moving into a rented property can have its pros and cons. Whilst you know what you’re moving into, you may not feel that it reflects your personal style or makes you feel at home. Many people instantly see renting as a negative thing to do, thinking that it won’t ever be a place of your own, but with the right decorative touches and features, you can make any space cosy and homely. Keeping the rules and regulations of your landlord in mind, these useful tips will help you to put your own touch on your rental property, giving you the perfect space to live in.
Add Removable Décor
One of the most popular décor features in rented properties is removable wallpaper. As most landlords ask you not to make permanent changes to the walls, removable wallpaper gives you the option to brighten up the room without doing anything you can’t change back. Wallpaper is ideal for transforming a room, whether you opt for a simple colour or you’re more of a vibrant pattern kind of person and you can really create a space that reflects your personal style and interests by doing this. If you add the removable wallpaper to the room and realise it’s not quite what you were hoping for, it’s simple and quick to take it back down and go back to what you had originally. You can find a wonderful selection of removable wallpaper here, from plain and simple to bold and beautiful!
Whilst you’re thinking of removable décor, you could also consider the curtains or blinds within the property. Taking down a set of curtains is one of the easiest things you can do and simply replacing them with some modern, stylish curtains that fit with the décor style you’re going for is going to really help make the room feel more liveable. With a huge selection of blinds and curtains available, you can find the perfect style to suit your rental.
Enhance the Walls
The walls in your home are always a really important space to consider. It doesn’t matter how big the room is, if you leave the walls bare you can often find the room feeling quite plain and boring. If adding wallpaper isn’t quite the option for you, then why not consider adding some beautiful artwork to the walls. Many landlords frown upon putting holes in their walls, but it’s always worth asking the question. If your landlord is happy for you to add some artwork, photographs and other creative items to the walls, then you should look at using durable, hard wearing equipment to do so. There’s a wide selection of decorating equipment available here, or you could pop to your local hardware store and get some advice on the best items to use.
For those who aren’t keen on the idea of drilling holes into the walls, you can use these sticky pieces of magic to do the job. Command strips are miracle workers for many homes, especially when you’re not sure whether you want to keep a certain photo or painting in that spot for a long time.
Bring the Bold
Having beautifully bold décor in your rental will instantly make the space feel like your own. It’s important to introduce your personal style to the space, as this is what will make you feel more comfortable and able to wind down and relax. There are lots of different ways to bring bold touches to your home, which makes it perfect to suit all styles and needs. When it comes to furniture pieces, you can add bold cushions, throws and accessories to bring those areas to life. You can also look at adding bright touches to your home with rugs, lighting fixtures and ornaments.
