Home Improvement for Renters

Home improvement projects for a rental home can be tricky. Especially if you want your security deposit back. However homeowners aren’t just the only ones who can enjoy home improvement projects. Renters can get in on the fun too! These DIY home improvement projects are perfect for the renter looking to personalize their space.

Utilize furniture

Furniture and décor can give character to any space. Take a day or even a weekend to reorganize or replace your furniture. Use furniture that represents your personal style to add color to your space. The right furniture placed properly can give your apartment a professional interior design look on a DIY budget.  If your space is limited you can also use furniture for multiple uses. For example, some ottomans provide great storage space while at the same time being comfortable seating.

Short term wall design

For most renters that can’t paint on the walls, this limits how much you can do to personalize your space. You can overcome this with renter friendly wallpaper. They come in many different colors and styles to decorate your walls to reflect your style. They’re a great way to not have to live with 4 bare walls. When you decide to move, you can just peel it all off and get your deposit back.

Stylish Separators

Need to divide a room for privacy but can’t really build a wall? Invest in a stylish divider. You can separate the living room from the kitchen or even split a bedroom it two. Create two bedrooms from one. Dividers come in various colors and patterns or you can buy a plain black or white one and decorate it yourself.

Mirror Trick

Need a little bit more room but can’t knock down any walls?  Adding a large mirror to a room can help make a room feel bigger. It’s a neat visual trick that helps brighten up a room and make it feel more spacious.

These are just a few of many ways you can make your rented space your own. No nails and hammers needed to revamp your space.
