When renting it can be kind of restricting when it comes to interior design with things such as painting, carpeting and even down to the small things like wall hangings. Buts it’s not all that bad if you follow a few simple guidelines, your house will look like it belongs on the cover of “Home Beautiful” in no time.
PERMISSION IS IMPORTANT: Before you do anything to a rental property you have to seek the landlord’s permission. A common misconception is that the landlords do not want you altering the home at all; in fact most landlords are thrilled. Many landlords are happy for tenants to make changes to the property as long as it is seen as adding value, like a fresh coat of paint or new window dressings, but do remember to contact your Real Estate Agent or Landlord first.
RUG UP: It can be easy to forget that flooring provides the most colour in a room, so the smallest of changes will make a great difference to the overall look and feel of your home.
MIRROR, MIRROR ON THE WALL: Mirrors are a great decorating trick that works wonders. They reflect light and make a space feel much bigger than it actually is, giving the illusion of a much larger room than what it really is. Placing mirrors in hallways or areas with the most natural light is most beneficial.
LAYER UPON LAYER: Even the oldest or most plain sofa can look full of energy with some scatter cushions and throw rugs. Don’t be afraid to mix colours and textures, and don’t be afraid to make a statement.
By putting in place a few of these simple tips it will help make your rented property your own. There is no reason why the best house in the street cannot be a rented property.
