How to Personalize a Rental Apartment on a Budget

One of the most exciting parts of moving into a new home is having a blank canvas to decorate and express your personality. With a rental, it’s a little bit more difficult to customize your home to your exact preferences but with a little creativity, your new space will be personalized in no time!

Utilize Removable Wallpaper

Removable wallpaper is a fun way to add personality to any room, hallway, or closet in your new space! From florals to geometric prints, removable wallpaper is design magic and can be installed quickly and removed without a trace.

Update Your Rugs

Even if your new apartment has carpeted floors, layering thin, patterned rugs on top will add warmth and personality in a heartbeat. If you’re keeping your overall design simple, consider a fun, colorful rug!

Decorate Your Walls

Removable wallpaper isn’t the only way to spruce up the walls in your apartment! From gallery walls to hanging personal items collected while traveling, adding texture to the walls adds a design element that won’t leave any damage.

Treat Your Windows

Let’s face it: bare windows are boring. Dress up your space by updating your window treatments! From light and airy to room darkening, there are so many different patterns and colors you can utilize to breathe life into your space.

Add in Plants

Plants have a way of making a house feel like a home. Not to mention, they’re great for indoor air quality! Some of our favorite house plants are monsters, cactus, succulents, and flowering plants.

Switch Out Your Hardware

Have a dresser or side table with boring knobs or pulls? Switch them out funky new ones from Wayfair, CB2, or Anthropologie!
