Easy Holiday Decorations For Renters

Tags : 

Decorating a rented home can be a bit tricky at times. The agreement you signed with your landlord might include some specific ways on how you can or cannot decorate your home. For some, hammering in nails, painting the walls and re-installing the tiles are a big no-no.

For some, hammering in nails, painting the walls and re-installing the tiles are a big no-no. However, we advise you not to fret because there are ways you can sneak past these rules without breaking them. Here are some easy ways you can decorate your home for the yuletide season.

  1. Frames for Festive Lights

    “At least one manufacturer has recognized the need for hanging lights around a window without tape, tacks, or hooks. The “Window Wonder Frame Kit” is a customizable plastic frame system that you can press in place between the windowsill and top window jamb. Add-on pieces are sold to fit windows of larger sizes so you can customize the fit for just about any window.Clips on the plastic frame hold incandescent mini-lights in place, but they’re not designed to hold LED lights. Once installed, the lights are visible from inside or outside, and they’ll be perfectly aligned around the perimeter of the window.” – Landlordology

  2. Start with the walls

    “1. Ask your landlord for permission to paint your walls a nice neutral color. If your landlords are smart, they’ll understand that you only want to improve their property, which make it a win-win for all parties. That’s what we did in our current pad, and our landlord gave us the green light. #rentersforthewin

    2. If your landlord says the walls must be white when you move out, then you can always paint them back at the end of your lease. Which (while being a pain) is still an option. Or you can paint an accent wall in a prominent spot and then you’ll only have 1 wall to paint when you leave.” – TheDIYPlayBook

  3. Invest in statement lighting

    “You might not be able to change the positioning of your ceiling lights, but whether it’s with lamps, lanterns, candles or statement pendant lights like this red plastic design, you can control the level of mood lighting in your home.” – IdealHome

  4. Think about colour matching

    “An easy way to make your rental look more welcoming is to use colours that complement your existing decor. Don’t fight the fixtures and paint colour already in your rental if you’re not permitted to make major changes. If your home has a neutral interior (i.e cream or beige,) use metallic gold or soft green – it will bring your room to life. You might also like to wrap your gifts in a similar colour.” – Rent

  5. Rearrange your furniture.

    “Your couch doesn’t have to be pushed against a wall, unless you have the tiniest of tiny apartments. In which case, there are other ways to change it up.” – Huffington Post

Just because your house is small doesn’t mean you can’t live large.

Built-ins are definitely key. There is nothing we regret about our built-ins. Everything functions perfectly for us. The one thing we often talk about doing differently is the couch. We would have liked to get a pull-out couch. Not only for visitors, but for ourselves! We imagine ourselves pulling it out to watch a movie as our couch isn’t quite large enough for the both of us to lounge. We almost purchased a pull-out, but the lead-time was too long. I think both of us regret not waiting! – Natasha from Natasha & Rob’s Super Smart Small Space via Apartment Therapy 

Behind the TV

This will definitely take some handy work, but you can create a flap under your television with some springs and hinges, which will allow you to store your DVD player, video game system, and any other electronics behind your television. Source.
