How to Make a Rental House a Home

You’ve finally made the step to rent a house, which means it’s time to put a stamp of your own to make it home. Even if you are just renting, that does not mean your home can’t be the home of your dreams! There are so many unique ways to add a touch of your own personal style to every part of your home. From pops of color to furniture that opens up a room, we’re sure there are design elements and options you’ll love for your space.

Fill your home with things you love

It’s true when they say “Home is where the heart is” especially when you fill your home with the things you love! Whether that’s beautiful artwork, crafts or items that were gifted or brought back from a trip, surrounding yourself with objects you treasure can turn an ordinary space into an elaborate home you love just as much!

Living things for a living space

Having indoor house plants can change the atmosphere of a home almost instantly! There’s just something about having a little piece of nature in your space to enhance the overall feeling and appearance of your home. Not only do house plants look great, but they often have physical health benefits, too. Studies have shown houseplants can boost your mood, productivity and creativity all while helping reduce stress and absorbing toxins in our air. 

Light up your space

Lighting is a simple, yet effective, way to change the atmosphere of a room and your home. Luckily, there are so many unique designs and styles to change the dynamic of your space. Strategically placed floor lamps, free-standing lights and ceiling fan lights will transform your home into a stylish and comfortable abode.

Add color to bring your home to life

Color is a constructive way to personalize your home to your style. Start with how you want your home to feel. Do you want to achieve a calming and relaxed atmosphere in your home? Aim towards adding blues and grays. Do you want to achieve a minimalistic and polished look to your home? Add touches of neutral colors like shades of white and beige. No matter what colors you love, choosing colors that cater to your style is sure to turn a house into a home.

Multi-functioning furniture

A sure way to spice up your rental home is by adding furniture that fits your needs. Depending on how much space you have, utilizing multi-functioning furniture could benefit your space and storage needs. Sleek sofa beds or folding dining tables and chairs can be practical, useful and interchanged on a daily basis. Consider shopping functionality over style next time you need a new piece of furniture!
