If you’ve ever rented a home or apartment you’ll probably understand how hard it can be to turn a rental home into a nest, and if you can’t relate – consider me jealous. I’ve rented some incredible apartments, but I’ve always been limited on what I’m able to do to them to make them my own. It probably has a lot to do with me watching a little too much HGTV, but I’m always dreaming of which walls I want to knock down, what countertops I want installed, and how amazing a stainless steel stove would look in place of that ugly white one that I have.
But over the years I’ve come to terms with the fact that until I have a house of my own demoing walls and installing countertops are probably out of the question (but if you happen to be a cool landlord reading this, let’s talk). These rental decorating tipscan make your space feel a lot more like home though.
Speaking of decorating tips: I’m kicking myself for not thinking of covering walls in plywood to protect walls in order to put a personal spin on them.
