One of the most considerable downsides of renting a place to live is the fact you can’t really do any major work on redecorating, redesigning, or in other ways upgrading your apartment. However, while you might need your landlord’s approval to do anything major, there are plenty of cool ways you can upgrade your rental apartment right now.
Today, we’re going to be looking at seven of the best to give you the inspiration you need to get started;
The wallpaper you can apply to a wall and remove whenever you want is becoming more and more popular as the designs and functionality of this new decoration is becoming better and better each year. Try new designs, use as much as you want and take it off when you don’t want it anymore without a trace.
Upgrading Knobs and Handles
While knobs and door handles may seem like a tiny, insignificant detail you probably don’t pay much attention too, the truth is the beauty is in the details, and upgrading this part of your rental is simple, effortless, inexpensive, and becomes a great way to create a place you can call home.
Use Rented Furniture & Appliances
The great thing about getting furniture for rent, rather than paying for it outright, is that you can have and enjoy it as long as you need it. Once you want to move place or try something else, you can simply swap it over or get something new, all without having to pay out again and again and again. There are even large appliances like a washing machine on rent you can have when you need them.
There’s no denying the impact a carpet can have in your rental home, and if you’re looking to add a new range of personality to your home, a carpet can definitely be the way forward. Choose the one you love and fits the room, and you’ll be able to take it with you wherever you go.
Upgrading Your Shower Fixtures
Your shower heads are another great way to spice up your rental and add your own personality because you can buy and install whatever one you want whenever you want it and take it with you wherever you want to go. However, don’t forget to check the water pressure to make sure it works well!
Add Funky Lighting
Most lightbulb cables and connections will all be the same, regardless of where you’re living, so there’s no reason you can’t splash out on your lighting fixtures to add some charm and personality to your rental. When you’re done, pack them up and take them to your next place!
The final thing you may want to consider which can be a great way to mix up the aesthetics of your kitchen, bathroom, or pretty much any room in your home, is using self-adhesive tiles. These fix onto the wall and can be taking off without a trace at any time you want! There are also plenty of designs to choose from!
As you can see, you don’t need your own house to be able to live in what you call home. Even if you’re renting, there are plenty of things you can do to make your place personal to you!
