Living in a rental property is amazing in many ways but is also limiting when it comes to some little details like when you want to customize it so it feels a little more ‘yours.’ Your design options are limited but that doesn’t mean that you should suppress all of your style from your place.
So if you live in a rental property or you are planning to rent one, you have to know that you can get creative in many ways without getting in trouble with your landlord. Instead of looking at apartments for sale in City Walk or those off plan projects in Dubai, put some effort on your rental’s looks and leave the Dubai property market for the future.
WALL TO WALL
One of the basic rules of a rental property is that the property’s interior paint colour must not change, but when you start thinking in other creative ways of changing that without using a paintbrush is when you win.
Having some large-scaled art pieces hanged might be just what your rental needs. You can also use pictures, lots of frames; you can even make a mural on a canvas and hang it. You can also go down removable wallpapers and curtains.
PUNCH IT UP
You can make your property more interesting and vibrant-looking by adding some colourful furniture and decor. Having a theme or using your favourite colour are good ideas when you’re doing this.
And if you don’t have the money right now to buy furniture, you can always go to your nearest thrift shop and DIY some old furniture with fresh-looking paint so you can bring that life your apartment needs without damaging your budget too much.
SOFT GOODS, BOLD TONES
Forget about traditional colours and dress your apartment up with bright colours or attractive patterns that make the space pop out. This is useful for bedrooms, living rooms, and bathrooms and it can be applied to almost everything ranging from rugs to curtains, sheets, and pillows, just try to have a theme or at least keep using the same colour palette.
MAKE IT YOURS
Remember that what matters is that you are happy with the changes you are making. Making it yours, adding your style to the place without making any big changes is just what you need so your rental, as mentioned before, feels more ‘yours.’
