Decorating Your Rental Space

  • When decorating small spaces, you don’t necessarily have to go with pint-sized furniture. Just pare down the number of pieces.
  • Make sure there’s balance and create interest by drawing the eye to varying levels throughout the space. Multi-purpose pieces go a long way.
  • One of the quickest ways to change the look of a rental, aside from paint, is to change the lighting. Invest in new light fixtures and take them with you when you leave.
  • When decorating on a budget, try to look at old items in a new way. A desk can become a buffet table, and who knows, maybe an old door would make a great headboard!
  • Never underestimate the power of a coat of paint! Paint a tree stump in a bold hue to create a cool side table or stool.
  • Walk through a second-hand store with a mind to breathe new life into an old piece of furniture; try using two tones of your favourite colour.
  • To create a gallery wall you have to start with a commitment; your frames should either match, but vary in size or they can be mismatched but uniform in size.
  • Oh, and make a choice; black and white or colour for the entire collection.
  • Collections are a starting point for your accent pieces and carry themes on in other ways. If you collect bird figurines, find a ‘birdie’ pillow to complete the look.
  • We improved a kitchen for a budding chef by capping inexpensive bookshelves with a slab of granite we found in the sale section at one of our suppliers. Instant island!
