When you rent out a home, you need to follow the terms and conditions of the lease strictly. Generally, the agreement does not allow you to make major structural changes; but you can surely remodel your living space. Add the personal touch to make your rented apartment feel like home. Here we have listed some pocket-friendly tips to revamp your rental home -
- De-Clutter - Remove all unnecessary items to make your rental home look spick and span. The key areas of your house should be organized and not have unwanted miscellaneous items lying all around. One can always donate things that are no longer required or in use.
- Lighten It Up - Replace the shabby lightening fixtures and install portable table lamps to brighten up your home. Add chic lanterns or fairy lights along the staircase and doorway to give it a fresh look altogether.
- Upgrade The Décor – Revamp your home with new curtains and rugs to add value to it. Also change over the worn out carpets. Try experimenting with the décor, because you never know what clicks off instantly and helps you turn your dull and drab rental home into a new upgraded version of itself.
- Change The Furniture – It is often a good idea to change your furniture for a better and improved look of your home. Buy the furniture that suits your personality, but make sure that your room does not look congested and overstuffed with furniture items. Buy second hand furniture if you wish to refurbish your home without shelling out dollars.
- Clean Around – Try to keep the home clean and spotless to let your home puff in. Clean up the dusty layers that sprawl up on your furniture and windows. Do not forget to clean the attic and garage as well as to mow the lawn.
- Let The Air In – Open up all windows and relatively less used spaces. Letting in some natural fresh air can literally breathe in life to your home.
- Close To Nature – There is nothing better than placing plants and flowerpots on your windows to add the natural aesthetic value to your house. Place in bunch of flowers in a vase to decorate your living room. Highly beautiful, budget friendly and free oxygen, what more could we ask for!
- DIY Projects – Let the artist in you make and create DIY items. Create modular shelfs, customized wall hangings etc. to add in style and utility.
- Use Empty Spaces – Do not stray away the odd corners of the house as they have huge potential to be utilized. You can build shelves, display your art or place a plant in the left out corner. The space under the staircase can be used for storage or as small reading station for your kid.
