One way to instantly update the look of your kitchen is to purchase inexpensive stick on wall tiles, which you’ll be able to use in order to create a chic backsplash for your kitchen. As an example you may want to alternate black and white stick on tiles, to create an eye-catching backsplash.
2. Replace your doorknobs and drawer handles
As an example, you may be tempted to replace your outdated drawer handles with sleek, stainless steel handles.
By simply switching out your rental’s current light fixtures you’ll be able to transform the look of your rental. As an example, you may want to invest in a stylish bedside lamp, that will express your unique sense of style.
4. Use bright throw pillows in different textures to decorate your living room, study, and bedroom
To achieve a vibrant atmosphere, simply purchase a few bright textured throw pillows, that you’ll be able to place on your sofa, chaise, and bed. Some examples of textures that you may want to experiment with include fluffy pillows, linen pillows, and sequined pillows.
7. Paint a large sheet of contact paper with blackboard paint to create a blackboard wall
It’s possible to create a blackboard wall without painting your rental’s walls. Simply use blackboard paint to paint a large sheet of contact paper, which you’ll then be able to place on your desired wall.
In order to give your home a cozy, warm vibe, it’s a great idea to hang a wallpaper on one of the feature walls in your rental property.
9. Hang a chaise cushion behind your bed instead of using a headboard
If your bed doesn’t feature a traditional headboard, you may want to hang over your bed a chaise cushion from a shelf. To add a bit of glamor to your master bedroom, simply opt for velvet curtains in a rich hue, instead of opting for traditional curtains.
10. Display your decorative items in an empty bookshelf
If you’re not allowed to put up shelves in your rental property, simply choose to display your decorative items such as your framed photos in an empty bookshelf.
So if you’d love to update the look of your rental, it’s well worth experimenting with some of the interior decor upgrades listed above!
