Decorating your rent house with the limitations set down by your landlord can seem discouraging. You may feel like your rent house will never be able to display you own personal flare. The truth is that there are many simple ways to decorate your rent house or flat without upsetting the home owner.
When choosing furniture for your rent house pick pieces that will really attract attention. By choosing bold furniture you will attract attention away from the features on the home that you cannot change such as the floors and wall colour. Many people, at some point in their life, find themselves moving more frequently than they like. Sturdy lasting furniture will allow you to bring your style with you to each new rent house and no matter where you are, bold or funky furniture can really display you personal style and make any room feel like home. It is important to consider the type of house you will rent before investing in your furniture, though. While a large overstuffed sofa is comfortable and looks great in a large room it can feel a bit cramped in a small area. Also, a very small couch will look lost in a large open space.
If you cannot afford new furniture to brighten up your space there are many less expensive ways to make your rent house your own. A colourful tapestry will hide stark white walls and warm up any living space. You could hang paintings or framed pictures to achieve the same effect. If you want a more personal touch, paint your own wall hanging on a large piece of canvas.
The floor is probably the simplest part of the home to decorate. While a nice rug can be rather pricy the warmth that a colourful pattern rug will add cannot be duplicated. A nice rug will create a space that you will enjoy being in. It will also protect the rental’s carpet which can be expensive to fix if you stain it.
Now that the walls and floors are taken care depending upon your need to tie everything together with classic window treatment. When renting a house adding window treatments will make the rooms feel finished and stylish. Window treatments are a good way to add colour and texture to the room not to mention save on energy costs. A heavy curtain can be closed to keep out the heat or cold and opened up in the spring and fall to allow fresh sunshine to help warm your home.
You can create a comfortable, stylish living area in your rent house no matter how strict your land lord can be. With a little creativity you can make the atmosphere of your rent house reflect you personality turning an empty rent house into a real home.
