3 Amazing Ideas For Adding Personality And Style To Your Rental Home

3 Amazing Ideas For Adding Personality And Style To Your Rental Home

When adding style to a living space, it can be much more tricky if you live in a rental property. While a rented home can be just as homely and stylish as an owned property, the ways in which style can be added are different.

In a rental home, most landlords won’t allow tenants to make any big changes to their property, including painting. To change up your home’s look and add style, some awesome accessories, and a little creativity are needed.

To give you a few ideas of how you can change the design of your rental property with accessories, here are three fabulous ideas:

1. Add personality with pictures

While decorating a rented apartment can be tricky, it’s even harder when living in furnished apartment rentals. However, there are still plenty of ways you can add personality and style to your home. In fact, one of the best ways to do so is with photographs.

Don’t be tempted just to pop a few framed pictures around the place, get creative and think of unique ways to display them. As long as you fill in the holes once you have moved out, why not use the walls to display your pictures?

Perhaps you could create a photo collage to put on the wall, or get a printed photo canvas? Maybe you could create a photo montage using a variety of photo frames mounted on the wall? There are so many unique ways to display your family pictures; a photo frame doesn’t have to be it.

2. Add style with pillows

You might not think it’s possible to add style to a rental property, but it’s actually, incredibly easy. Okay, you might not be able to paint the furniture or wallpaper the walls, but you still have accessories to play around with.

The best accessories you can use to easily add style to your home are pillows. It might sound strange, but as they come in all sorts of shapes, colors and prints, pillows are ideal for adding style to any space.

The key for adding style with pillows is choosing a range of different colors and prints and using them to create a mix and match effect.

3. Create the perfect atmosphere with lighting

You might not be able to change the color of the walls, but that doesn’t mean you can’t change the atmosphere of your home. One of the easiest ways to change the vibe of a room is through the lighting in place.

You see, the strength of the light bulb, as well as the tone of the lampshade, create a certain atmosphere. For example, a dim light bulb with an orange-toned lampshade creates a warm, cozy and relaxing atmosphere. Whereas, a brighter light bulb will create a more lively atmosphere.

You may not realize it, but by simply changing the lampshade in a room, you can give the space a whole new feel.

While living in a rental property can make putting your own stamp on your home more difficult, it isn’t impossible. There are plenty of simple ways you can add style and personality to your home, without breaking the landlords rules.
