Decorating for Renters Made Easy


Decoration ideas for rentersThe start of a new season means it’s probably time to hit refresh on your style. And while it’s a good idea to start trading in your mittens for flip flops, your apartment could also use a makeover to add some extra spring to your step. Here a few nonpermanent decorating ideas to make your apartment bloom this spring.

Flowers – Flowers are one of the easiest ways to add instant style to your apartment. Not only do they make your space more bright and beautiful, but they can also create some amazing scents. Pick up some fresh flowers from your local farmers market, or check out our tips for starting and caring for an indoor garden of your own.

Paint – Instead of painting the walls, why not paint some of your furniture? This is the perfect way to add a pop color without the commitment. We recommend going bold with this idea, or trying out one of the 2016 Pantone Colors of the Year on your bookcase, chairs or nightstand.

Pillows, Blankets & Rugs – Another way to add some color to your space is through small items such as pillows, throw blankets and rugs. These will also help bring more visual appeal to your space if you take the opportunity to incorporate some unique textures.

Mirrors – Mirrors reflect light, making your rooms appear airier. You can never go wrong with a large mirror, and with so many fun frames out there you can certainly find the perfect mirror to match your style.Easy Decorations for Renters

Show off – Instead of laying down all your jewelry or knick knacks on your tables, which takes up valuable space, utilize the walls. Create a gallery wall of your necklaces and pictures, and install floating shelves to display your most treasured collectibles.

These are just a few ways to make your apartment feel more like a home. Check out our Pinterest page for even more apartment decorating tips and be sure to keep coming back to our blog for news, tips and tricks to help you along your renting journey.
