Decorating a Rental: 5 Ways You Can Personalise Your Rental Property

Decorating a rental house, apartment, or townhouse may feel like you’re limited in the way of décor, additions to the walls, paint, and essentially just making the space your own. For the most part, all it takes is asking your landlord for permission as to if you can make specific changes – the answer will usually revolve around ensuring you put it back to its original state before you leave (if you ever decide to).

Of course, this doesn’t mean, when decorating a rental, that you can go and make major changes that impact the structure of your space, but more so small and simple transformations that you have the ability to reverse if needed. In this blog, we’re going to be listing some of the top tips to assist you in personalising your rental space, giving it that feeling of comfort, individuality, and character.

Decorating a Rental Property

Temporary Wall Coverings

Decorating a rental house or apartment doesn’t have to be boring or bland. You can easily add some personality to your rental with temporary wall coverings. Wall decals are a popular choice for renters – they come in all sorts of designs and can brighten up any room. You can also use contact paper to create fun patterns or images on your walls. Just be sure to get permission from your landlord before you start sticking things to the walls!

Curtains & Shutters

If your apartment has expansive windows or there are existing window coverings that feel a little bland, you may be able to swap them out for something a little more ‘you’. Natural light is a must for rental properties, and if you’re wanting to create more of an open and airy feel, some soft sheer curtains or light coloured PVC shutters at Blindo will certainly do the trick. Always ensure you have an installer that knows exactly what they are doing and will be there to assist in removals if needed.

Bring in Some Greenery

When decorating a rental. adding some plants can really help to liven up the space and make it feel more like a cozy home. Not only that, but it brings nature inside and emits a sense of peace and tranquility – allowing you to feel relaxed whenever you’re at home. Choose low-maintenance plants that won’t require too much care, and make sure you get permission from your landlord before you start drilling holes in the walls for hanging plants.

Photos & Wall Art

If you’re not allowed to make any changes to the walls, but you have rental decorating ideas that involve wall art and hanging things up, removable hooks are a great alternative for hanging things. Hanging up pictures or paintings throughout your rental is going to add colour, texture, and uniqueness to your space – making it feel more like home than ever.

Change Out the Cabinet Hardware

One simple way to change up the look of your rental space is by changing out the cabinet hardware in your kitchen, bathroom, and laundry (or anywhere else where there are cabinets). This can be done with merely a screwdriver. Just make sure you keep the old hardware so you can put it back before you move out, or, if the owner likes what you’ve done, you may be able to keep the hardware there for the next person.

Decorating a rental takes some simple creativity and thinking outside of the box. It’s easy and allows you to make your living space feel comfortable, unique to you, and adds a touch of character where you need it the most. The best thing? Is that all of these small changes can really transform your home and are easy enough to put back to their original state when and if you need to leave.
