5 easy ways to add character to a rental property

Rental properties can often look empty and unwelcoming, but there are several easy ways to give them character and turn them into a cozy home. Whether you’re a tenant wanting to make the space more welcoming or a landlord looking to attract new tenants, these five easy tips will help you achieve this.

  1. Hang pictures on the walls

This is perhaps one of the easiest ways to add spirit and individuality to your living space. You can hang paintings or even posters and cards – choose whatever carries value for you. This not only adds a personal touch to the space but can also help accentuate each room.

  1. Add plants

Plants not only bring life into a space but also help purify the air. The easiest way is to choose those that are not fussy to grow, such as cacti and succulents. In addition, plants can be used to visually “resize” space, such as dividing a large room into smaller visual areas.

  1. Use rugs and pillows

Rugs and pillows add color and texture to a room. A few decorative pillows on the couch can add warmth and make the space more welcoming, while rugs eliminate cold from the floor (especially in cases with marble floors, for example) and create a cozy feel.

  1. Add lamps

Lighting can change the mood of a room and add depth. Use smaller, table or floor lamps to create a warm and attractive atmosphere. Good lighting can also help create a sense of space and make the room appear larger.

  1. Personalize with decor

Items like vases, candles, and bookends give an entirely different feel to any space. You can also add personal touches like family photos or items with sentimental value. These small but actually key details can contribute to making the space truly feel like your own.

It’s important to keep in mind that while you can add character to a rental property, you should always consult with your landlord before making any changes to the property. Many landlords allow tenants to add their personal touch to the space, but this is not always the case, so it’s good to check with them first to avoid unforeseen situations and misunderstandings.
