As a renter, there are not many things that you can do to improve a property. This is simply because you do not own it and cannot make any permanent changes without approval from your landlord. There are a few ways you can make improvements to the property without making permanent changes. These improvements can make the home reflect your personality more while you live there. Follow these tips to make your rental more appealing!
- Add a mirror to a room that may feel small. Adding a large mirror in a corner of a room can really open up the space. This will need to be a mirror that you can stand up on the floor so you do not make any actual changes to the rental.
- Use a colorful rug to hide ugly flooring. Sometimes in rentals, you do not get brand new carpet or flooring before moving in. If you do not like the look of the flooring, cover it up with a rug of your choice.
- Add some plants to bring life to the property. It is amazing what a few plants can do to the look and feel of a room. If you want some more life in a room, add some plants, even if they are fake.
- Consider painting a wall or two. You will want to check with your lease but if you can paint the walls, as long as you repaint them the generic color upon move-out, do it! You may want to consider just painting an accent wall for a few rooms.
If you are renting a property, you should be insured. If you do not currently have rental insurance, contact Fuhriman Insurance Agency serving Boise, ID, to get a quote for a policy that fits your needs.
