The choice for the renters is very limited and you can’t do big changes if landlord says no, but it doesn’t mean your home deserves to be boring. Here’re some cheap and easy decorating tricks to help you!
1. Mix up the way you add plants to your home
In addition to placing different plants on surfaces around your home, get creative with how you hang your plants. Change up the containers you use, from watering cans to lightbulbs. And aside from containers, use a variety of plants, especially tiny ones.
2. If you can’t paint your walls, add some color to your furniture
If you don’t want to paint the entire piece, you can always accent parts with either spray paint or regular paint. When painting wooden furniture, make sure to 1) clean off any residue, 2) sand everything down, 3) prime it, 4) paint at least two coats with a foam roller, and 5) protect it. See more details here.
3. Use ladders for shelves or racks for a more striking look
