Creative Ways to Decorate Your Rental

Decorating your rental is a fun way to make the space feel like home. However, adding your own flare can be difficult with the limitations that come with not owning the property. In this guide, we’ll dive into some creative ways to spruce up a rental temporarily–without breaking any rules!

Buy Houseplants

Houseplants can make a space feel warmer and more serene. Not only can they break the monotony of a room, but they can also add a bit of colour. You can even play around with their pots and containers for extra character!


Plants in the kitchen


You don’t need fancy plants to decorate your rental; it may not even be wise to get them if you don’t have a green thumb. Low-maintenance plants, like cacti and snake plants, can do the job just fine.

Get Your Own Furniture

If your rental property is unfurnished, it’s a good idea to invest in high-quality furniture. Not only will you be able to choose things based on your budget and preferences, but you can opt for pieces that will last you a long time, allowing you to bring them along when you eventually move into a different place or if you purchase your own home.

Be sure to get content insurance for tenants so that you can efficiently safeguard your new furniture, along with the rental property itself.

Decorate the Walls

Though you might not be able to paint over your rental’s walls, you’re likely allowed to install temporary wallpaper and accents to change its overall look. Play around with colours so that you can make your space look more harmonious.

Upgrade the Light Fixtures

Adding light fixtures and changing bulbs can make a huge difference in how rooms look and feel. Set up lamps, desk lights, and accent lighting–and if your entire property is washed out by bright fluorescent lighting, consider installing bulbs that emit a softer light.

Put Up Some Artwork


Invest in artwork from your favourite artists or buy posters that you can hang up on your walls to give your space some pizzazz! You don’t have to nail anything onto your walls–you can use adhesive hooks, instead. 

Add Rugs

If you’re not quite happy with how your floor looks, you can cover it up with some rugs. Rugs don’t have to be limited to the living room–you can add them near entrances, in your bedroom, or in your bathroom–anywhere, really!

Change the Covers


Mix and match blankets, pillow covers, and sheets to add some colour and texture to your bedroom. Getting creative here can easily change the mood of a room. You can even add unique pillow covers to the throw pillows on your couch!

Find Inspiration

There are plenty of other creative ways to decorate your rental property–all you have to do is find inspiration. Look online, check out interior design magazines, or ask your friends to gather some ideas to help turn your rental into a space that reflects your unique personality.
