Seasonal Decor Tips To Cater For Renting
Discover practical tips and tricks for decorating your rental home without causing damage. Learn how to personalize your space and find your perfect home.
You may be thinking of or have seen a rental you want to make your home soon, or maybe you have been living in your rental for some time now and are looking for ways to give your space more of your personality. But because it is a rental, you often worry about limitations and what it is you can get away with in order to properly decorate your space. Worry not, in this article, we will give you tips and tricks to decorate your space while ensuring it does not get damaged, and also where to go when looking for your next rental.
First, Get Lots Of Plants
You can never have too many indoor plants. Indoor plants may provide brightness, liveliness, and can also improve your health and welfare in general. Some popular favourites are the Peace Lily, Rubber Plant, Kentia Palm, and Swiss Cheese Plant. The idea of creating indoor plant-filled jungles feeds in well with biophilia; humankind's innate attraction to nature and natural processes. Housing plants will not only be great for decoration, but also for your well-being. Invest in a few (or a lot) of house plants, and consider some outdoor plants if you are one of those lucky people with a balcony that has lots of space.
Throws And Fleeces All Year Round
When it comes to chilling on the couch and enjoying some Netflix and chill with your loved ones, we’ve got you covered (literally). Consider investing in some fleece blankets and throws to keep you and your guests warm and snuggly on those winter days and protected from the heat should you use them in the summer on your balcony or veranda. Fleeces and throws are a great addition to an apartment, and you can chop and change the colours and designs with each season and decor theme you are going for. When decorating a small bachelor, you want to have your throws in a cute box or basket placed nicely in your couch area, or simply have them over your couches and bed. The world is your oyster.
Rug It Up
If you have more space than a bachelor, you may be looking for living room and bedroom decor ideas that differ. One way to give both rooms personality, and can work when decorating a bachelor too, is a rug (or two). A statement rug can take your flat from cave to haven in a flash. It's crucial to remember that the size of your room and the arrangement of your furniture are the two key factors to take into account when picking a rug size. Do not make the typical error of purchasing a rug that is too small. If you're not sure or can't decide between sizes, go with the bigger option for a polished appearance rather than a careless one.
Light Up Your World
If there isn't enough natural light, think about placing some lights in the apartment’s corners. To make the lamp more of a focal point and less of an accessory, you may pick one that sticks out. Simple adjustments may have a huge impact when your options are limited. Think about the function of light fixtures for different areas of the home. Table lamps create focused lights for reading in the bedroom. While in the living room, floor and table lamps create an ambient glow during the evenings and help to anchor the overall theme.
Make Storage Stylish
Storage baskets are among the nicest and most fashionable storage solutions for the living area, but they also look great in bathrooms and bedrooms. They have a wonderfully tactile texture that gives a design personality and makes them an excellent method to conceal clutter in a living space. Consider getting a few and placing them in different rooms and corners of your apartment as they form part of affordable decorating ideas to consider.
