We all want our home to feel comfortable and personalized, but it’s a little more challenging to decorate a rental apartment. You won’t be able to make huge renovations in your rental, but there are plenty of small ways to customize the space to really make it feel like your own! Continue reading for a few tips on how to personalize an apartment rental on a budget.
You know that you aren’t allowed to put up wallpaper in your rental, but there are less-permanent ways to change up the walls! Removable wallpaper is a huge trend in apartments, as it’s a very easy way to add personality and style to your space without damaging the walls. Look for high-quality removable wallpaper that can be removed without a trace when it’s time to move, or when you feel like trying a new color and pattern!
While you may think that paintings and beautiful artwork are out of your budget, think again! You can frame almost any print online and transform it into a focal point in your apartment. You can find inexpensive frames at a craft store, and print out personal photos or your favorite designs online! A gallery wall instantly adds personality and design to your apartment and can be done for a very low cost.
You may not realize it, but lighting has a huge effect on the overall effect of an apartment. If your apartment came with outdated lighting fixtures, swap them out for updated design elements such as a new pendant light or chandelier. Add a few stylish lamps to your living room and bedroom, and your apartment will be completely transformed.
After you personalize the walls and the lights, it’s time to move on to the flooring. Rugs are a great way to make your home feel more comfortable and to show off your personality. There are so many textures, sizes, colors, and patterns to choose from, and you can find rugs at every price point. As long as you choose design elements that bring you joy and happiness, a new apartment will feel like home in no time!
