Windows treatments. Dressing your windows to impress is what I recommend, for an instant pick me up. Adding simple neutral shades or if you want to add more colour why not add a second panel in a bold colour or geometrical print. It will spruce up your home instantly.








Try swapping out the boring, basic light fixtures. As we all know it can make a huge difference in how your room looks, feels and functions. Adding table lamps and floor lamps in the bedrooms and living area and even a battery powered led under cabinet lighting for the kitchen is a easy way to update your rental and save you tons of money on lighting.

So in most rentals, painting the walls is a big no no.... Well thats ok, why not just add wallpaper panels. Use your DIY skills and create stunning wall art by gluing wallpaper straight onto plywood. Its that simple.. they instantly add colour and pattern to your rental home and its a cheaper alternative than having to fix up the walls when moving time comes around.
