Rental Home3 Simple Ways to Make Your Rental Home Feel Homey

Moving can be a stressful time. Especially when the things that are familiar to you, and make you feel comfortable, are packed away in boxes. But there are quick ways to make your rental home feel homey!

Making a transition to a new home can be a smooth experience if you follow these simple tips

1. Unpack as fast as you can

While it’s nice to do things with time, unpacking quickly is the first thing that you can do to make things feel more settled. Why spend days or weeks digging through boxes to find things? Not knowing where your possessions are can be frustrating and confusing. The quickest way to feel more relaxed is to get everything out of the boxes and organized. Plus, putting your things away de-clutters your living space!

  1. Decorate the walls to warm things up

Blank wall space creates a feeling that you’re not staying. Adding decorations to the wall helps things feel homier. Often times renters will not hang things up because they think it’s just one more thing they’ll have to take down when they move again. But it’s very likely that you may be in the home longer than you originally thought, so why not make it your own?

  1. Make inexpensive swaps and updates

Of course, you don’t want to spend a lot of time and money investing in décor for a home that you may not stay in long-term. But spending a little money sprucing some things up will help you to feel more content.

Consider replacing or updating the items below:

  • Paint
  • Toilet seats and lids
  • Light fixtures
  • Shower heads
  • Outlet covers
  • Cabinet knobs and door pulls
  • Towel bars

These are a few inexpensive ways to personalize your space. Always be sure to check with your landlord before you make any significant changes.

Turning a house into a home doesn’t have to break the bank. It’s all about finding the few things that really make it feel like your place!
