5 affordable rental home decorating ideas

Make your rental home feel like your own with these decorating tips and budget buys.

Renters face a unique set of challenges when it comes to furnishing and decorating their homes as they often need to work with what they’ve got, and are limited in the changes they can make to existing features. This can make it hard for renters to create a home that feels like their own.

Here are the five biggest challenges faced by renters.

1. Storage 2. Restrictions around securing items to the wall 3. Poor lighting 4. Working with the existing architecture 5. Finding ways to personalise the space

To combat these challenges, here are some styling tips to help make a rental feel like your own and a list of top rental-friendly homewares.

6 RENTAL-FRIENDLY DECORATING TIPS

1. WORK WITH MOOD LIGHTING

  1. Lighting is an extremely important feature of any home. It can dictate the way a space feels.

  2. Often in rental places there is not enough natural light. Floor lights placed in corners help create ambience in your room, and clamp lights create light pockets on shelving units and give functional light for reading.

2. RENTAL-FRIENDLY STORAGE SOLUTIONS

  1. There are always going to be storage restrictions in rental homes. You can’t remove walls or insert custom cabinets, but you can find lots of furniture with added storage.

  2. In areas where you a need to add more storage like the kitchen, consider bench carts, trolleys, tables and bookshelves to give the space both style and increased function.

3. FINDING THE RIGHT SOFA

  1. Often when you rent you can never be sure how long you will stay in one place. So it can be quite tricky to buy large items such as sofas, but if you go with a modular option you can adapt it to smaller and larger spaces.

4. PERSONALISING YOUR WALLS

  1. There are options for wall decoration that don’t involve screwing anything into your walls, helping to ensure you get your bond back.

  2. Often when you rent you can never be sure how long you will stay in one place. So it can be quite tricky to buy large items such as sofas, but if you go with a modular option you can adapt it to smaller and larger spaces.

5. TEXTILES

  1. Textiles are an affordable and easy way to refresh a space. A rug for your living room can add warmth and style, and can help draw attention away from tired carpet.

  2. Exchange old curtains for new ones for an instant lift to any space, they can be removed in moments and replaced with something fresh and bright. You can stick with white, but patterns can also add interest to a neutral scheme for minimal cost.

6. ADD SOME GREENERY

  1. If your rental place is lacking colour or warmth, plants are a great addition.

  2. Indoor plants are known to add calm and serenity to the indoors and also help to purify the air.

  3. Growing your own veggie garden is also a smart way to save money and encourage you to eat better, it is another great non-permanent addition to a rental home.
