Decor Tips For Renters

If your landlord isn't flexible about letting you painting the walls, bring color in with throw pillows and rugs. A rug quickly unites a conversation area.

Take advantage of vertical space. As in the books on the wall. And this room is filled with natural light, always a bonus.

Add a whopper of a light fixture that will command attention and add texture. Fresh flowers always add panache. 

This kitchen makes great use of its space. I love the window with pots and pans hanging. What a unique idea!

This all black and white bathroom looks terrific with the floor tiles. If there's room, add a little table such as this round one, where you can add a plant, a small candle, etc. 

Renting doesn't mean you can't have a beautiful home. Quite the opposite. And as long as you improve on an area, the landlord may be willing to bend rules. 

Love it while you rent it, as I always say. Life is too short to be living in the future. Make your spaces reflect your personal tastes and you will be happy living there.

I'll be back later for Tweak It.

  1. These are all wonderful tips! We rent off a family member so luckily they allow us to make some changes depending on what it is (:

  2. I agree Brenda! I think that goes for your own home, in the now! Don't wait for that major renovation for 10 years, little tweaks can make the space gorgeous now!

  3. Oh love it while you live there!
    that statement couldn't be more appropriate for today... for me, right now this minute.

  4. Cute ideas for renters! I love those yellow chairs. I'm thinking of painting mine a different color. Not sure if I should go with white or do my favorite colors. I always like mis matched chairs around a table!


I always enjoy reading your comments and having you join the conversation here at Cozy Little House. It is like having a gathering of friends sitting in my cozy apartment. Enjoying coffee and dessert, chatting and having a good time. I appreciate each and every one of you!
