Make Yourself at Home in Your Rental
Have you found that perfect long-term rental in Fort Walton Beach? Maybe you found a condo on the beach in Destin. Whatever it is, now that you have the space, you are ready to officially make it yours.
No, we do not just mean signing the lease. You have the keys and it is time to decorate. The question is, how can you add a personalized touch to the space without jeopardizing your security deposit?
Every rental is different and so are the rules. So first things first, check your lease or speak with your property manager directly about what you can and cannot do. If it is allowed, paint the walls. This could be limited to certain colors and rooms, so determine if it is worth the time and effort.
Pictures can be a nice alternative to painting the walls. They offer the same value of self expression with out the damage or even work. Likewise, accent pieces such as area rugs and tables can help make the space feel like your own.
No matter the obstacle, there are a variety of ways to make your place feel like home. Just remember to check with your Gulf Coast property manager before you decide to make a change.
