How to Put Your Own Stamp on a Rental Property

Demand for rental properties remains strong and it’s not hard to see why. Buying a property is too expensive and restrictive for many people. However, one downside of being a tenant is that it can be harder for people to put their own stamp on homes.

If you’ve struggled to give your rental properties character in the past, take a look at the following design tips. Bear in mind that not owning a place doesn’t mean you can’t give it plenty of personality.

Add a splash of color

The quickest and simplest way to tailor your rental property to your own tastes is to add your choice of colors. Check to see if your landlord minds you re-painting the walls. If they don’t, it’s time to get your rollers out and set to work. Just bear in mind that you may have to change the design back before you move out.

Don’t be disheartened if your landlord won’t let you paint. There are other ways to add a splash of color to the best homes to let in Colchester. For example, you can invest in large colored prints for the walls. The addition of some posters can even enhance the look of your rooms.

Put up plenty of photos

Lots of photos are a must too. It’s now easy to order digital prints online. For the best results, include a combination of different styles of image. For example, you can frame individual pictures or create collages using lots of snaps. You might also want to purchase large canvas prints of your favorite photos. These items make a superb focal point in living rooms and bedrooms.

Get some new furniture

Lots of renters are put off buying furniture for their homes because of the thought that they may be moving on in a matter of a few short months or years. However, there’s no need to let this deter you. Bear in mind that you can take all the items you purchase with you when you relocate, so this isn’t wasted cash.

By putting up some new shelving, adding an attractive coffee table to your lounge, purchasing a wine rack for your kitchen and making other changes, you can ensure your house or apartment perfectly suits your needs.

Add greenery

The addition of some greenery can help to bring rental homes to life too. Introducing plants into your kitchen and lounge will add instant vibrancy. You might also want to buy window flower boxes. These can make your property look much more homely from outside.

Don’t be afraid to use a garden area if you have one too. OK, so your landlord might not be happy if you start re-landscaping the yard or digging up the flowerbeds. However, a simple solution to short-term gardening is to use planters. These containers allow you to grow a range of flowering and fruiting plants and they can help ensure you feel connected to your rental property.

By following these simple design ideas, you should be able to put your stamp on your new rental pad.
