Fun and Easy Ways to “Remodel” for Renters
Feeling bored with your rental? Renters often feel they are stuck with a generic looking space. Remodeling costs, lease agreements and building management can make it difficult for renters to “remodel”. There are many ways to spruce up your space without spending much and allowing you the flexibility to reverse your remodel when you move out.
Many renters are getting creative with their living space. Below are some fun and inexpensive ways to “remodel” your rental:
- Upgrade your hardware- Add some life to your boring cabinets with warm golds or stylish brushed nickel knobs and handles.
- Use peel and stick wallpaper- Wallpaper is trending again and it’s not your grandmother’s floral print. Peel and stick wallpaper are a great alternative for renters. The rolls come with an adhesive backing allowing easy application and removal. You can choose from bold to soft prints.
- Luxury Vinyl Flooring- Many vinyl tiles can be installed over existing floors, getting rid of the need to remove the “old floor” using drop and lock system. It enables a quick, easy, hassle-free installation.
- Upgrade your showerhead and change your faucet -Turn your boring shower into a calming spa. Choose a showerhead with multiple settings. Make the bathroom your favorite room in your rental.
Always get approval from your landlord before making any changes. Make sure to keep all original pieces so that they can be swapped out when you move.
