Decorating The Walls In Your Rent House? Use These Tips To Help!

Wednesday, November 27th, 2019

If you have just moved into a new rent house or are a first-time renter, you may not know how to decorate your walls. Putting your own style in your house will make it feel more like home. Landlords want you to feel comfortable, so here are some tips on how to put your own personal touch on your walls.

Use surfaces and alternatives instead of the walls

If your new rental home has features like extra shelving, consider putting art there. If there is thick enough molding, you can use s-hooks to hang photos. You could even display large art by leaning it against a wall, which is a growing trend in minimalist design. If you aren’t allowed to hang pictures or paintings, you can bring in furniture with shelving to add smaller art.

Consider using removable wallpaper

This idea should not be attempted without permission from your landlord. Removable wallpaper works like wall decals. It should only be applied to walls that are clean and minimally textured. Simply press-and-stick the wallpaper you like on the walls and when you are ready to move out, remove it.

Add some greenery around the house

Adding real or fake plants to your rent home can bring in some color and interest to you decor. This a good option for those who don’t own paintings or cannot hang anything on the walls. If you have pets, be sure to choose plants that won’t be poisonous if ingested. Also, keep in mind that real plants must be cared for. Fake plants will collect dust and dirt (especially in windy Amarillo) so they must be cleaned.

Ask your landlord what you can and can’t do

This is important to do before you start decorating your walls. They may have rules about nail sizes or only allow removable wall hangers. Also, they may have some ideas about decorating and may be able to work with you on painting if the colors don’t suit your style.

Consider the features of the room

If you are allowed to decorate your walls, but aren’t sure where to begin, look at the features of the room. For example, if the living room has a lot of natural light, balance the bright feel of the room with matte decor. If your bathroom is small and dark, add lighting and metallic pops of color to brighten it up. Don’t be afraid to try new things to make your rent house feel like home.
