8 GENIUS APARTMENT DECORATING IDEAS MADE FOR RENTERS

Decorating rented space is a real challenge. Most landlords have rules about painting, holes in the wall and a host of other design challenges. Despite those limitations, you can have a truly fabulous space.
First impressions matter. Take the time to cultivate an appealing and welcoming entryway like this one.

Choose beautiful furniture that doubles as extra storage, like this big ottoman.

Speaking of double duty furniture, this all-weather table and chairs can be taken out to the patio when the weather’s nice and used in the office the rest of the time. Isn’t that smart?

Add splashes of color with potted plants. Succulents are easy to care for, but if you have a green thumb, try your hand at some gorgeous flowers.

If you’re lacking a headboard, a headboard decal (affiliate) offers the perfect solution! It creates a pretty design on the wall that’s easily removable and repositionable.

Or purchase temporary wall paper to add some color and pattern to your fridge. A wallpapered fridge? Yes! It looks fabulous.

Use clothespins to hang pictures on ribbon or string. It minimizes the number of holes in the wall and will save you lots of filling in when you move.

Use washi tape to create frames for photos.
