Tips to Make Your Rental Feel Like Home

Whatever your situation, you will most likely find yourself renting a property at some point in your life. Today, we’re sharing a few tips to make the most of your rental home, without breaking lease agreements or the bank.


1) Use the Walls
We know that you cannot deface the walls per se, but you can get little creative. Wall stickers (also known as decals) are a clever way of adding your own touch to your place without leaving any marks- plus, they can easily be removed. However, don’t be too scared to hang up artwork as long as you fill in the holes afterwards. Gorgeous paintings and personal framed photos can help turn a house into a home. We love these Rainbow Flutter and Rainbow Poppies paintings as their rich pastel colours create a fun and bright atmosphere. See more Wall Decor >

2) Lighting
Something as simple as the lighting of each room can change the way it looks and feels. Plus, cute lamps and intimate lighting can really make a room feel homely. Make sure to learn about our Amazing Flameless Candles. With a realistic glow and flicker, the hand-crafted, real wax candles create a completely natural ambiance. Shop our Lighting Collection >

3) Using Rugs to Add Colour & Warmth
If your lease forbids you to re-paint the place, you can improvise by using rugs. Check out our Venice Carpet Collection – these small carpet pieces can bring warmth to any room. Plus, they are on sale right now. Or, if you are looking for something a little more chic, try our New Zealand Sheep Skin Rug. It’s so soft and stylish! See our Rug Collection >.
