Most of us in our 20’s and 30’s live in rented spaces. And its always a challenge to decorate as there are only THAT many changes we can make to the space. Also, cost and re-usability always becomes a factor for further moves that take place. So, in today’s blog post we are going to talk about how to decorate a rental place.

In today’s time where Real Estate rates are rising day by day, residing in rental place has its own advantages. In a way it teaches us to embrace the changes. It gives so much of freedom, freedom to experiment, freedom to move out and set up yet another place as our HOME! It maybe a little emotional ride as well. The question  here is how to make a new house our home? Home with the same feeling as the previous place?

At such times, home décor plays an important role. But then how do you decorate a place where you a not allowed to put a nail in the wall?

Ditch investing in new lighting. Upgrade the existing ones, repaint them. You can also make use of some tealights. As they give neat look to your space.

Another way to add life to your  place, is by decorating  your wall. Let it be anyway, just don’t keep it vacant.

Don’t invest in painting your walls, unless you really really really want to do it. As it is you’re going to reside here temporary and painting isn’t cheap either. Buy a large  canvas board instead. Use whatever color you want. Add a big dose of colors to your space. This works as great therapy too and  it being inexpensive is bonus 😉
