It’s a small world and rented spaces suit today’s global citizens who are on the move and see stability in that, but making that space an extension of you is, in fact, tricky, as you would want to do it without marring the house in anyway so as to keep your security deposit intact.
We are all for stylish yet functional settings. Here are some tricks from us:
Hide those blinds:
If you find blinds boring, then cover it up with curtains of your choice. Now you need not have the hammer down the curtain rods, you can choose light ones and use removable adhesives to fix them up, these adhesives are strong yet do no damage to your walls. Try the 3M ones, they seem to hold on stronger.
Deck up the Wall:
Adding temporary decal would literally liven up any living room. Choose ones, which comes off easy, do a trial on a smaller spot first.
You want to go king-size then can use removal wallpaper on all walls.
Your landlord willing, go in for a single different painted wall, to add style. Any owner would love their houses to look good without having to spend for.
If you feel you want an easy solution to personalize your rooms then a picture gallery to suit every mood in every room.
If you don’t want to change the walls then you can add spring of colour to your TV stand, or couch, armchair, just a few pieces coloured up so it shows character and brightens up the room as well. Like the red TV stand brings in colour and cheer to the white walls .
Knobs and Pulls:
Change them to suit your style, it does take a few minutes but your house would have your charm, remember to safely put away the old ones and re-fix them when you vacate.
Lamps and Lights:
Change the outdated styled lights and add one more your style, give your room the soul it needs. Put away the old one and re-fix when vacating.
Plants and Pictures:
Plants and pictures add life to any room in ways you can’t imagine. Whether it is beautifying a corner or to style up a wall, can be done with a little creativity and care. You wouldn’t have to use nails to put up your picture, removable adhesives are good choices.
Choices many, so pick the right one for you. Also remember to keep all the old fixtures to swap them while vacating.
A ground rule while entering any rental agreement is to read the fine print and always reach an agreement on all the clauses with the landlord, so that when you vacate you are sure to receive your security deposit in full and final settlement.
So go on and bring in your style in your rental home.
