There are many great reasons for choosing a rental property over purchasing a home, but it can be difficult to transform a rental property into a place that feels like home at the end of a long workday. If you are living in a rental property and trying to make it feel like it belongs to you, here are some of the easiest ways to make your rental property feel more like home.
Start With The Outside
Get started on the outside of your rental property, as that is the first impression that friends and family will have when they visit. Put solar lights along the pathway leading up to the door so that it’s easy to see the way to your door. Place a wreath or other creative door covering on your front door to make it feel more like your personality. Don’t be afraid to add in additional exterior accents, like hanging flower baskets or small potted plants, to give the outside more personality.
Use Intelligent Storage
Customizing a rental property can be difficult when it comes to storage. The things that you use need to be removable without a trace left behind. Look for closet systems that do not require drilling or complicated permanent installation. Use pocket organizers to store cleaning products or shoes without taking up much extra space. Instead of purchasing bookshelves, use square shelving that can hold books in addition to tchotchkes and other items.
Add Some Greenery
One of the biggest things that prevents many rental properties from feeling more like home is a lack of greenery. Purchase small, easy to care for plants that will add a pop of cheer and color without putting any nails in the wall. On the fence about adding some small plants? They can also help to purify the air in your rental property! Instead of using another type of air purification system or fretting about swapping the air filters out constantly, just purchase several small houseplants and scatter them around your rental property. You’ll notice the difference within a month or two!
