Tips on Decorating Your Rental Apartment

Any apartment for rent, no matter if it is two bedroom rental in Beaverton, OR or a luxurious mansion in Quebec usually can’t boast about cozy interior design which would suit you down to the ground.  There’s always something about it you will be unsatisfied with – like furniture, upholstery, curtains, etc. It is said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and it’s true. Every person has their aesthetic canons and preferences and it’s up to a tenant to create a certain atmosphere that reflects their style, habits, and taste.

Creating home environment in a rented apartment

  • Replace textiles

In order to make temporary accommodation cozy, the first thing you should do is to completely replace the textile design. Start with the curtains, using a lighter fabric with a beautiful floral pattern or monophonic ones. You can, of course, order Roman blinds or roller blinds, but if you need to move to a new location, their size may not be suitable for other windows and you will have to spend money buying the right textile.

Also, we recommend to cover the bedspreads and blankets on sofas, armchairs, and beds, decorate the furniture with decorative pillows. For the chairs you can make the special cases – then the atmosphere in the rooms will change beyond recognition, and the apartment will look cozy. It is especially important to decorate a children’s room or a separate area in the common living room with textiles because children are especially worried about moving to a new place and therefore it is necessary for them to create a familiar home environment

  • Put up shelves

We believe that the owners of the apartment will not oppose this kind of minor transformations. Light hanging shelves in the living room will help to conveniently place a variety of decorative small items, paintings, vases and other things dear to your heart. Thanks to this simple and quick method, you can not only update, but also create a familiar atmosphere that will suit your inner state and mindset.

  • Put a carpet on the floor

It happens that the floors in rented apartments leave much to be desired: cracks and other defects spoil the appearance of the room and cause a lot of inconveniences. If you are not ready to spend money on fixing or replacing the floors, you can cover them with linoleum or use a practical carpet to hide the most obvious defects.

  • Diversify the light

Lighting devices can rarely please with their diversity and originality in the rented dwellings.

Do not spare the money and buy the lamps you like, because they can be removed at any time (from the ceiling, walls, chest of drawers) and take with them, moving to a new place. Fill the living room with different light: bright and muffled, basic and optional, decorative and functional. Thus, you immediately feel the comfort and warmth of your home even in an apartment found with the help of Icon Beaverton rentals in Beaverton, OR.
