Freshen up your rental property without making permanent changes

When decorating a rented property, there are many things you must bear in mind when making?any dramatic changes, including getting the landlord’s permission. 

However, there are plenty of ways to?add personality to the property without risking your deposit, including: 

Layering up

Creating layers in a room is a great way to allow a home to feel lived in. 

By simply adding soft furnishings like cushions, blankets, curtains and rugs, you could make your rental feel a lot more like home. 

If you’re unsure where to start, find a major furnishing that catches your eye – such as a nice rug – and build from there using similar fabrics and colours. 

Investing in indoor plants 

Houseplants are a great way to brighten up a room. 

These are often inexpensive and require minimal to no effort. 

Even if you lack a green thumb, there are plenty of options such as using artificial plants that will require far less work to maintain! 

Letting loose on lighting 

If your rooms are lacking in natural light, opting for a well-positioned lamp can flood the area with some much-needed brightness. 

Light fixtures can be practical and stylish, with many energy-saving options available, such as LEDs to brighten your home and reduce the impact on your wallet and energy consumption. 

With many types of lighting available, it’s important you spend some time comparing to find the right “glow” for your home. 

Hanging artwork without the need for nails

Having a home filled with personal photos on the walls is a great way to set the right atmosphere in your rental. 

By using damage-free picture hanging strips, which can be found in most DIY stores, you can avoid losing your deposit due to holes in the paintwork. 
Making the most out of your space 

Most of us wish we had more space in our house to fill with our personal belongings, so why not create it by investing in multifunctional furniture for your rooms? 

Not only are these practical?but many options are also stylish, meaning you don’t have to compromise on the aesthetics of your home. 

From the garden to the bedroom, there are many ways to save space by creating a multi-purpose environment, such as a home office.
