4 Easy Decor Tips To Make Your Rental Feel Like Home

Who says you can't decorate your rental to represent your design aesthetic?

Just because you have a rental doesn’t mean you can’t spend time decorating it to represent your design taste and feel like a curated haven. There may be challenges like lease restrictions banning painting or permanent fixtures and hanging paintings, but with some creativity, you can turn your rental space into a place that feels like home.

Use high-impact, low-commitment decor.

Start by embracing changeable decor that makes a big impact without ruining your chances of getting your deposit back. Removable wallpaper allows you to choose from tons of styles and designs to dramatically elevate a room’s aesthetic. Wall decals are another great way to add an artsy touch while being easy to swap out and remove. Placing large mirrors in your rental is great for expanding the space visually and enhancing natural light.

Invest in flexible furniture pieces.

Choose furniture that can adapt to different living situations. Modular sofas, stackable chairs, and extendable tables are perfect for adjusting to the size of various living spaces. Invest in one or two high-quality statement pieces, like a designer coffee table or a luxurious armchair, which can travel with you from home to home.

Add personal touches with accessories.

Accessorize your rental to reflect your personality. Mix and match vibrant throw pillows, cozy blankets, and stylish rugs to add color and texture. Hang curated artwork or photos in beautiful frames that don’t require nails, using removable hooks instead. Display collections, books, and personal items on open shelves to create a lived-in feel that truly represents you.

Optimize lighting for ambiance.

Lighting can greatly affect the vibe of a home. Avoid relying solely on harsh overhead lights by adding layers of lighting. Floor lamps, table lamps, and even string lights can provide soft, ambient lighting that makes your rental feel warm and inviting in the evenings. Choose lights with dimmer options to adjust the mood for different occasions.
