Do-It-Yourself Decorating Tips for Renters: How to Make a Rental Feel Like Home

Lakewood Tenant Hanging CurtainsWhether you’ve just rented your first single-family home in Lakewood or have been renting for years, it’s critical to make your rental home feel like your own. While you won’t be allowed to paint the walls or make other permanent alterations, there are plenty of ways to inject your own personality into your rental. This blog post will cover some simple do-it-yourself decorating ideas for tenants that will help you make your apartment seem more like home. 

Removable wallpaper. If you’re seeking to add some pattern and interest to the walls of your rental home, removable wallpaper is an excellent alternative. There are numerous styles and colors available for removable wallpaper, making it simple to pick something that suits your taste. And the cherry on top? When the time comes to vacate, simply peel away the wallpaper and take it with you. 

Stylish furniture. Furniture is another way to add flair to your rental. If you’re starting from scratch, seek components that are both attractive and functional. For instance, a coffee table with storage can be utilized to hide magazines, books, and other objects. Additionally, a dining table that functions as a desk is ideal for tiny rooms. 

Functional accents. There are various other ways to add function and flair to your rental home besides furniture. Coats, towels, and keys, for instance, can be hung from wall hooks. Furthermore, shelves can be utilized to store books, dishes, or anything else that requires organization. 

Window treatments. Curtains and blinds provide seclusion and light control while also providing an opportunity to incorporate color and design into your room. If you’re searching for a cheap method to update the look of your property, try changing out the window treatments. 

Peel and stick vinyl floors. If you’re weary of the look of your rental’s worn-out floors, consider covering them with peel-and-stick vinyl. This type of flooring is simple to install and is available in a variety of styles, which means you’re sure to find something you adore. It’s also simple to take down when it’s time to leave. 

Temporary backsplash. With a temporary backsplash, you may give your rented kitchen a facelift. Peel and stick tiling and removable wallpaper are just a few of the possibilities available. Choose something that complements your personal style while also ensuring that it will not damage the kitchen walls of your rental. 

Better Lighting. Better lighting is one of the simplest ways to make any place feel more welcoming. If your rental property has harsh fluorescent lighting, consider replacing it with softer, more flattering bulbs. Lamps or string lights can also be used to create a warm and inviting ambiance. 

These are just a few ideas for making your rented home seem more like your own. With a little creativity and work, you can change your rental into a beautiful and inviting room that feels just like home.
