One of the worst parts of renting a home is that you are often very limited in terms of permanent decor. Wall coverings, counters, appliances; these things are often changeable only by the land-lord, and even if you could change them you can’t take them when you leave. Luckily, in modern times we have come up with some truly innovative ways to show off our individual styles in a rented house. Let’s spruce things up, Deco & Bloom style, with Renter Friendly Decor Solutions.
Temporary Wallpaper: Whether the paint is a terrible color, or there is out-dated wall paper, covering up those wall can be an important part of updating the look of your living space. Temporary wall paper, like this Tempaper® Double Roll Removable Wallpaper in Damsel White and Black from Bed Bath & Beyond can give your rooms a whole new look without needing to be scraped off, or painted over later.
Hide Ugly Appliances: Appliances are normally included with an apartment or home when it is rented, but these appliances aren’t always ascetically pleasing. To breath new life into these old devices, try updating their look with this Instant Stainless Film Kitchen Roll from Appliance Art. Quickly and easily give your fridge a stainless steel make-over giving your kitchen a more up to date feel.
Cover up Old Counter tops: Counter-tops are difficult to replace in the best of circumstances, but when renting a home they may not be replaceable at all. For an instant transformation to an exciting new look in your kitchen or bathroom try this Instant Granite Countertop from Appliance Art. In a few minutes you can hide those scratched up counters in a way that is easy to remove when it’s time to go.
Tuck away stained Carpet: Stained carpeting, scratched hardwoods, and cracked tiles can make for quite the eye-sore in your home, but these Indigo Chakra Carpet Tiles from Flor allow you to build a custom fitted rug that is easy to remove, and can cover up all sorts of flooring imperfections and mishaps.
Jazz up plain tile: When it comes to kitchen and bath tiling, be it boring, or broken, tile stickers are a great way to either add a little excitement, or cover up some otherwise glaring flaws. These Circle Tile Wall Stickers from Spin Collective are an excellent addition to any renter’s arsenal of wall coverings, and work great to bring a little life to your new kitchen or bathroom space.
