When you rent a home, it’s easy to feel like the space isn’t actually yours and you shouldn’t bother making it feel like your own. Most property managers Dallas will tell you that to actually feel happy where you live, you have to make an effort to make the space feel like home. Here are a few tips for enhancing your rental space and making it truly your own.
Add Some Color
After searching for luxury real estate Dallas and settling on the perfect home to rent, you may face a living space with very plain, monochromatic walls. Talk to your landlord about whether or not you’re allowed to paint the walls. If you get the go ahead to move forward, putting some paint in a shade you like on the walls can make things feel much more personalized.
Decorate with Pillows and Rugs
After you’ve painted the walls, continue to make your rental feel like home by adding plenty of rugs and pillows. Big rugs can instantly dress up your living spaces and make your floors more comfortable to walk on. Adding plenty of throw pillows can also make your living spaces more unique and inviting. Just make sure you go with options you like, instead of options a magazine or website tells you that you should like.
Put Up Some Art
Do you have a favorite piece of art that you love? Don’t leave it in storage! Instead, put it up in your rental home. Take time to figure out the perfect spot for it, whether that’s in your main living area, the entryway, or a large, blank wall in your bedroom that could use some interest.
On top of decorating with art pieces you love, put up some personalized photos. Some photographs of your family, friends, and even your pets can make your house feel like it belongs to you.
Invest in Quality Pieces
When you live in a rental home, there’s probably a chance that you may move on from that home to another one after your lease is up. For this reason, it’s easy to feel like the furniture pieces you have don’t matter. Change your feelings about this and invest in quality furniture pieces you love. For example, buying a quality mattress will make you love going to bed at night, and a sofa in a style you’re a fan of will make you happier every time you see it.
