Caro's Decoration Tips For Renters

Renters, don’t despair! Here’s how to make your house feel like a home without sacrificing your bond.
Whether you’re fresh on the scene or an old hand at the rental game, making a house into a home is not so simple when you are faced with the limitations and legalities of a rental property.

Without the freedom to rip up carpets, knock down walls and build in storage, you need to get a little bit creative to ensure you are using the space to its full potential. Here are some great tips for making a living space your own – without risking your bond refund when it’s time to move on!
COLOUR
Keep it simple. Our number one rule of thumb is to keep the main colour palette neutral. When choosing the main pieces for your home such as a dining table, bed, dresser, or TV unit, stick to a uniform neutral such as white, black and natural timber.

You may not always be blessed with a property with fresh white walls, neutral carpets and beautiful wood floor boards so organic coloured furniture ensures longevity as it works with almost any interior colour palette.
If your space is relatively small, glass and clear plastic furniture is a good option as it won’t clutter the space visually like heavy timbers and block colours will. The furniture has a “ghost” affect and due to its lack of hue, suits all colour schemes.

For those of you who crave more colourful character in your home, this is where styling gets fun! Instead of investing in a bright red couch that looks great in your current space but may clash horribly with the carpet in your next residence, add vibrant accents of colour with knick knacks and homewares.
Cushions, rugs, candles, frames, and artwork allow you to add your favourite tones to your living space without committing to a long-term mish-mash of colour. You can update and change these items as often as you wish for a fresh, new look.

WALL DECOR
More often than not, you will find yourself in a place with few to no wall hooks. This isn’t ideal when it comes to bringing personality into your home through wall art and photo frames. Luckily, there are some great hook products available that feature double sided tape guaranteed not to ruin your walls.

STORAGE
Storage can sometimes be minimal and insufficient in a rented space, but that doesn’t mean you have to resort to stacking plastic storage tubs in the corner for all to see.
Instead, explore creative and aesthetically pleasing storage options such as cane chests, vintage suitcases, and woven baskets and drawers – all of which can be found at good discount stores, department stores and homewares stores.

LIGHTING
Lighting is essential to how you feel in your home. If you are in a space that lacks a lot of natural light you will need to improvise to create a beautiful and relaxing light.
A combination of lamps, candles, lanterns and fairy lights give you complete control over the mood and how much light is shed – not to mention how delicious your place will smell if you opt for scented candles. Try filling glass jars with battery operated fairy lights. The effect is magical!

If too much light is your problem, you may want to block some out and increase your privacy. This too is easily fixed. All you need is a retractable curtain rod and your choice of curtain fabric. If you’re a little bit hands-on and crafty you could always custom make your curtains to perfectly suit your space.

FURNITURE
Choose flexible furniture. Most of us love a big, comfy, modular lounge to sink into but a fixed shape offers more options. Go for a reversible modular lounge that allows you to switch the chaise from side to side depending on your space.

Multipurpose furniture is great too; a coffee table with built-in storage, or a stool that doubles as a side table. Chairs and tables that can be compacted and stored away are also ideal for rooms with limited space.
