Decorating tips for renters

Do you want to make your rented space more homely or give it your personal touch? It can be hard to decorate fully when renting so we have put together some tips to help you make your space your own. 

Floor space

If you don’t like the colour of your carpet, a lively printed rug is the perfect accessory to brighten up your space Measure the space you want to cover and if the area is very large you might consider multiple rugs in the same style, this will give a tasteful mismatched feel to your home.

Customise your drawers

If you have an old chest of drawers that needs a new lease of life? Why not make it new again. Take out the drawers and paint the wood with some chalk paint and cover the front of the drawers in a wallpaper or stencil of your choice. You won’t recognise your dated chest of drawers and this transformation can be done cost-effectively.

Not enough storage

A common problem in homes is a lack of storage space. If you don’t want to put up another kitchen cabinet you should think about a bar cart.  This is the perfect place to keep your plates or bottles that you don’t have space for in your cupboards.  Take a look at this distressed bar cart from Wayfair.

Statement lighting

You'd be surprised how much a simple light fitting can transform your space from drab to fab. Take down that dusty off light shade and find something large and perforated to take its place. Better still find something with a metallic inside this will give the maximum warmth to the room and the pattern on the light shade will give your walls an easy decoration similar to the effect of a chandelier. Take a look at these light shades. Click Here
