Here are 7 easy ways you can brighten up your rented home
Redecorating a rented home can be tricky since you’re often not able to make any permanent changes.
But if you’re looking to make some low-cost alterations to brighten up the place, here are some ideas.
Decorate with wall stickers
Wall stickers offer a creative way to add your own style to your rented home. They’re also completely removable, so they won't cause any hassle when it comes to moving out.
There’s a wide variety of wall stickers on Wayfair, with prices starting from £12.99.
Frame your photos and make a collection
If you have lots of photos you want to have out on show, you can group them together on a feature wall in a framed display.
For a quirkier look, get a variety of different frames, new and old, of all different sizes, and paint them before mounting them on the wall.
You can buy these online or even from charity shops.
Create space with mirrors
Mirrors can make a small space feel larger and brighter. Simply place a mirror opposite or next to a window to increase the amount of natural light cast into the room.
Plants and flowers
A range of different house plants and flowers spread throughout your home can really brighten things up. Homebase sells a wide variety, including mini mix orchids houseplants costing £5.95.
But if real plants are too much upkeep, there are some very realistic fakes out there. Wayfair sells a wide range of fake plants to suit your taste.
Reed diffusers and candles
Incorporating scent is an easy way to create a homely atmosphere. Add candles, reed diffusers and plug-in air fresheners to create scents that makes you happy.
Adding unique or quirky lighting to your accommodation can really make it feel like your own.
Rugs and cushions
Adding rugs, cushions and throws can add a touch of personality to your rented property and make a bare space feel a little warmer.
