Hey guys,

Let’s talk today about decorating rentals.

Today, over 35 percent of the population rents their homes, which means that there are around 45 million renters in the US. When it comes to renting, one of the most common problems that renters struggle with is making their rental property look and feel like home.

Landlords often put sanctions on what tenants can and cannot do to a property, which means that when it comes to making a rental property feel like home, it can seem almost impossible. Tenants may not own their home, but it’s still their home, which means that it needs to be decorated in a way that creates a personal, as well as stylish, look and feel.

The walls may not be able to be painted, but that doesn’t mean that a personal look and feel can’t be created. One option is to create an accent wall with a selection of photo frames of different sizes and styles. This is a great way to personalize the space as it adds a little extra style, just make sure to pick photo frames that match the wall color and the rest of the decor, so that they don’t clash.

Another option for creating an accent wall to add style and personality to a rented room is to use contact paper. The fantastic thing about contact paper is that it can be used like wallpaper but is easier to remove should you move out and doesn’t damage the paint or wallpaper underneath it. Plus, it’s super cheap compared to wallpaper, which makes it ideal for anyone on a budget.

A lot of renters chooser to personalize their homes by using furniture and soft furnishings creatively. By choosing a different furniture style for each room, it’s easy to add personality and style to a space. As for the soft furnishings, these can be bought from local home stores, or to create an even more personalized space, many renters are using prestigious fabrics to create their own curtains, throw cushions, blankets, and even sofa covers. Believe it or not, soft furnishings can have a big impact on the look and feel of a space.
