Ways to Personalize Your Rental Home Without Painting

Personalizing a rental space is quite uncommon, especially when it has been stated clearly in the tenancy agreement the addition of paint or break anything is not permitted. Most house-hunters who rent properties are forced to use the standard kitchen appliances, the paintings on the wall, the old washroom fittings and other used items.

Personalizing the rental space is possible

Since you are staying in someone’s property, you don’t have the luxury to completely ward off the things that you dislike; therefore you have to think of innovative ways to re-design the space. There are creative ways to customize without painting the walls or changing the ceilings or the floor that will not bother the landlord in any way.

What are the ways of customizing a rental space? Here is how:

  • It is true that you don’t have the right to paint the walls, but it doesn’t mean that you cannot cover the walls with decorative and classic wall covers. Gallery walls are in fashion today and can be easily executed with the help of stickers without harming the walls.
  • If you are not happy with the floor type or the color you have the option of decorating the area with a beautiful rug or carpet to bring a total transformation to the appearance of the entire room.
  • You cannot paint a wall, but give it a new look by adding shelves and cabinets that can be positioned without drilling the wall. You can choose a wooden or  metallic shelf depending on your taste and preference.
  • Do you know window blinds and curtains can add an extra excitement to your rented living room space? You have the option of choosing from varying materials and textures like wood or fabric to make the space eye catching.
  • Is the wall color of your room dull and very gloomy? The bad news is that you don’t have the right to include your preferred color. All that you can do is play with the light and to bring out the brightness and the vibrancy that you desire from the room. Play with different types and shades of light colors.

The methods mentioned above are some of the ways and methods by which you can customize or personalize your rental home without painting it. They are cost effective and will enable you keep the rental contract between you and your landlord.
