How to Make a Rental House Feel Like a Home

Just because it’s not your forever home, doesn’t mean you can’t make it shine. When you live in a rental home, it’s easy to get stuck in a world of beige. Spruce up your rental house with these 5 simple tips.

5 Tips for Decorating a Rental House

  1. couple in new homeAdd a little color. If you’re staying in your rental for longer than a few months, there’s no reason not to brighten up the space with a fresh coat of paint. Painting a room (or even those outdated cabinets) quickly transforms the look of the house. And most landlords are on board with painting projects as long as you pick a soft shade or promise to paint it back before you move out.
  2. Dress up the walls. Artwork, draped fabric, and Home Sweet Home burlees are just the tip of the iceberg. Dive headfirst into DIY projects to spice up boring beige walls.
  3. Add decorative details. It’s the little things that make a house a home. Dress up the kitchen with fun printed dish towels, accent the mantle with heirloom holiday decor, and buy a brand new welcome mat for the front porch.
  4. Change the hardware. Is the style of your rental home so not you? A few easy fixes can change all that. Buy a few artsy, modern, or traditional elements to switch out the hardware in the house. Cabinet handles, door knobs, and sink fixtures are all easily traded (and replaced). Store the originals somewhere safe and enjoy those little details that make your new house a home.
  5. Get creative with storage. It’s always going to feel like a rental if you’re tripping over boxes and staring at linens piled on the couch. Short on storage? Invest in a few pieces of furniture that you can easily move to your next place. Kitchen trolleys, wine racks, and end tables with bottom storage all make excellent additions to rental homes.
