Mark Your Rental Space With These Simple Decorating Tips

Mark Your Rental Space With These Simple Decorating Tips

If you rent your home, you know it’s tough to fully decorate it without investing a bunch of money in something you can’t take with you. It’s kind of disheartening to think a lot of the work that you’d do only increases the property value for the property owner and won’t have lasting value for yourself.

But that doesn’t mean that you can’t create your own unique style in a place that you’ll love to live in, even if you’re on a budget.

If you haven’t chosen the rental yet, here’s a few things to keep in mind before you make your choice:

  • Ensure paint colors are neutral of match your furniture. If you plan on purchasing new furniture, ensure you can make the paint and furniture work together.
  • If the paint looks like it hasn’t been updated in a while, colors are too bright or don’t suit your style, ask the landlord if he is willing to paint. If you want to make it easier for him to say yes, simply tell him that you’d be willing to do the painting if he provided the supplies and equipment.
  • Make sure the flooring is clean, without damage and colors are suitable for your decorating style and colors. If there are any flooring issues, be sure to ask if they will be resolved before you move in or use area rugs that you can take with you when you leave.
  • Make sure all windows have appropriate covering, so that you have privacy in your home. They should also be in a neutral color or at least match your décor. Work out any issues with window coverings before-hand or be prepared to invest in your own.

Even though many landlords will agree to fresh paint, you might be hard-pressed for them to do major remodeling throughout the home, but there are still plenty of things you can do to have your home suit your unique style.

Here are some ideas to make an average rental living space more spectacular:

  • Add some life with brightly colored towels in the bathroom and kitchen.
  • Add some throw pillows on your coach and bed for added color.
  • Include some candles in your décor to add warmth and scents.
  • Add some style to the walls with picture frames, mirrors.
  • Find stylish and simple centerpieces or fresh flowers for your kitchen and living room tables.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Many rentals tend to be small spaces, so keep it simple. Minimize the knick-knacks and clutter. Less is usually more, when it comes to decorating.
  • Check with your local rental law to see what you can attach to the walls, floors, etc. It’s possible if you add permanent fixtures to the wall, that you won’t be able to take them with you.

Your living space need not be drab or boring. Just follow the steps above for a great-looking place you’ll love living in.

We had our roof restoration and roof painting done by Prestige Roof Transformations and we decided to go with dulux products for two reasons: the product is very safe (for our tank water) so we can drink clean water straight off our roof and also for the insulation benefits as it reflect the heat which lowers our energy costs. We are more than happy with the work Prestige Roof Transformations did. Excellent job!

John and Linda Carr – Tinbeerwah Sunshine Coast

We are really pleased with the way the roof turned out because it has been nearly 30 years and our roof was bearing a lot of patches. We have a two storey home and the upstairs was really hot before Prestige Roof Transformation restored our roof. We are very happy about the advice of Prestige Roof Transformations especially about the cool roof system. The new cool roof system came up really well and now we are looking forward for cooler time and environment upstairs. Also, we have a steep roof and Prestige Roof Transformations was really careful about the safety of the men working on the roof which really impressed me. We are so happy about the job they have done!

Highly recommended. Brad assured me that they would start the job once receiving my acceptance of the proposed Commercial Painting works. I was very impressed as they finished the painting before the 3 weeks promised. Everyone on the job was courteous and considerate…… professionalism at its best. Nothing was a problem and I would not hesitate to recommend them to my family or friends.

Olga – Nicklin Way

I’d like to compliment your guys firstly for the quality of their workmanship and in addition the professional manner they have undertaken their work. They moved through the various areas unobtrusively and were very respectful of the privacy of the occupants. It was a pleasure dealing with them throughout the project. My congratulations to both you and your team for encouraging such professionalism.
