Transform a Rental House in 6 Easy Steps

A rental house may not be a forever home, but that’s no reason to feel like an interloper in your own space. There are countless ways to personalize a rental home or apartment without losing your security deposit. Make a rental home your own in 6 easy steps.

How to Make a Rental Feel Like Home

  1.  mr junk truckOrganize. If you’re only staying for six months, it may seem silly to spend the time to organize the house. But living out of boxes gets old fast. Settle into your new rental with a dedicated “move in” weekend. Enlist the help of friends and family members, assign each a room, and get your stuff put away in no time flat.
  2. Garden. Do you hate those overgrown shrubs in the front yard? Ask your landlord about replacing them. Chances are the deed-holder will agree to anything that improves property value. Haul off old plants, then spend a few days installing fresh flower beds, hardscaping elements, and more tasteful shrubs.
  3. Paint. There’s nothing like a fresh coat of paint to make a house feel like home.
  4. Decorate. Not staying long enough to justify the paint/repaint process? Decorate the walls with artwork, temporary wallpaper, or creative DIYs.
  5. Redecorate. Hate that TV stand that came with your furnished apartment? Swap it out with the one you’re keeping in storage. Just don’t forget to replace the original before the end of your lease.
  6. Spring clean. Feel like you’re just spinning your wheels on the way to your dream home? Prepare for the big move! Sort through your stuff and get rid of the stuff junking up your space. Your rental will feel bigger and you’ll feel accomplished by working towards future goals.
