There are so many ways to decorate a rented space, yet sometimes it’s hard to put them all into action. If you’re looking for ways to decorate a rented space, I’ve got you covered. I’m currently decorating my own rented space, which means I’ve spent hours searching Pinterest trying to figure out the best and easiest ways to decorate a rented space without losing the security deposit!
1 Wall Decals
There are so many different types of temporary wallpaper, backsplash, or even wall decals that can completely transform a rented space! Even common superstores like Target are starting to stock temporary wallpaper options! If you’re looking for ways to decorate a rented space without losing your security, brightening up the place with your favorite temporary wallpaper find is one of the easiest ways to do so!
2 Removable Hanging Strips
Whether or not I’m renting the space I live in, the thought of nailing holes into my wall has always made me uneasy. I went looking for a better alternative, and came across removable hanging strips. You get two Velcro adhesive strips. You adhere one back to the wall, the other to your art, and when the time comes to move or redecorate, the strips come off without an issue!
3 Make Your Own Artwork
I don’t think anything screams personalization quite like coming up with DIY art for your home. Whether you plan on letting your kids come up with their own “abstract” creations, or you want to make your own masterpieces, you will always love what you come up with for your rented home.
4 Change the Hardware
Changing the knobs and other hardware in a rented home can instantly make a place look brand new. Not only will they better reflect your personal style than the original hardware you were given, but they’ll change the overall look of your home!
5 Make It a Home
If you’re living in a rented home, there’s a pretty good chance that it’s not a permanent home for you. You could be planning to live there for a year or two, or even five years, yet you’re probably hesitant to really commit to the place. You know it’s not permanent, so you don’t want to get comfortable. Fight that urge. Make it your home. Add touches that remind you of home, whether it’s fresh flowers, family mementos, or anything in between.
If you’re lucky enough to have tile or hardwood floors in your rented home, add rugs. They add a touch of comfort and a homely feel, plus you can get any styles or patterns that match your home and personal style!
7 Add Life into Your Home
Add life of any kind into your home. If you can get small pets, get one. If you don’t want to go the pet route, get plants for your entire home. Create an herb garden or decorate your living room with potted plants. You may be worried that you’ll kill the plants, but I personally think that there’s nothing as welcoming as a little touch of life, like plants!
