How to Renovate Your Rental for Under $100
Is there any better feeling than moving into a new rental? It’s a blank canvas just asking for your creative genius. But, as the boxes start to get unpacked, you’ll start to notice a few things you’d like to change. Thus, begins the “rent-ovating”. Here are the best updates you can make to your pad, without ever hiring a contractor, breaking the bank, or gambling with your security deposit.
Kitchens can often be the biggest disappointment in rentals, but they also have the biggest potential for transformation. If you can’t paint your cabinets (which is always the first question to ask), try removing the doors or installing floating shelves to display your finest china.
You can also replace knobs and pulls for an easy update.
Just like Michelangelo and the Sistine Chapel, paint is your medium when it comes to rent-ovating. There is no better way to get overnight change than with a fresh coat. But don’t limit yourself to just filling in the walls; paint the ceiling, a faux headboard, just the trim, or accent the fireplace with a coat of black.
You’ll be surprised what features you can bring out in a rental just by giving them a new hue.
Whatever you choose, trust it will be better than that dusty old thing hanging there already.
The world of adhesive décor has grown immensely. From temporary wallpapers to adhesive tiles, it’s all very exciting.
Make your rental seem more like a home (and more expensive) by adding an architectural feature.
