Hey guys, I am back sharing some rental tips. I am not a pro, but for the past 9.5 years until this past fall, I was living in a rental with my family. So, I would like to say I know something. Today Kathryn, from Up To Date Interiors (check her out, her style is on point), asked us to share our best rental bedroom hacks…so here I am! I have 5 tips for making your rental bedroom your own…stylistically.
5 Tips For Making Your Rental Bedroom Your Own
1.Spice up your life with color! If you cannot paint your walls, You can use temporary wallpaper or fabric to spruce up your room and add drama.
2. Display your jewels. Display your jewels as if it were art and you are on a hot budget. Jewelry can add that pop of color and bling to your space. The layering alone from jewelry is art all in its self.
3. Upgrade the drab with fab DIY’s. This is a tip I know too well. Last month I shared some living room hacks that I used, BUT it can work ANYWHERE in your home. When I lived in my townhouse rental, I upgraded my shutter closet doors in my girls’ room using supplies you can find at the hardware store. You can find that post, HERE!
4. Add your personal touch. Paint your furniture your favorite color. Hang up pictures of you and your loved ones. Make your space your own. You are the one living in your space, so why not bring objects into the space that will make you happy?
5.Budget yourself. When decorating a space, you do not always have to shop new to get what is on trend…or even to make a space look nice. Know your budget and shop accordingly. When I lived in a rental 99% of my furniture and accessories were thrifted, free, or given to me. I wanted a nice house but I did not want to pay big money on a temporary living solution.
Just remember, whatever house you live in, make it your own and have fun with it. Home is where memories are made. I am so happy to have been in good company when I was renting and hands down, rental living and always having to budget myself allowed me to be more creative. This is where I discovered who I truly am and what I love…stylistically. I hope these 5 tips can help you when decorating your home.
