Remember, if your landlord approved your request to redesign or redecorate your rented home, make sure not to overdo it. Remember, it’s not yours so make sure not to modify or change things permanent. Like for example, instead painting the whole house, try to use wallpapers to hide the old wall.

    My husband and I rented an apartment before we were married and we were not allowed to do ANYTHING. The landlord didn’t want holes in the walls,so we couldn’t even hang pictures on the wall.

  2. I’m a renter and I do have some flexibility but I have been here a LONG time with a perfect track record, this is a great list, it’s great to remind folks to get permission first, younger renters or first time renters may not know that and then find out and be shocked they are not getting their deposit back.

    Good low costs tips…somethings you can even take with you when you leave (like the area rug).

  4. Interesting. I rent an apartment currently … we are allowed to paint the walls but have to paint them back before moving out (thus, I’m not doing that, lol). We are allowed tacks or nails in the walls so I have some pictures up, though, luckily.

  5. Maria says:

    Good tips for low cost decor tips. Painting walls is always the quickest and most effective way to update a living space, and give it your own look and feel.

  6. Crystal says:

    You always give great tips. Paint and rugs can make a huge difference.

  7. These are all great tips! I love the idea of changing the hardware and switching it back before you move out! Also finding decorative pieces at yard sales!

  8. I rented an apartment about a year and a half ago because I didn’t want to continue with the upkeep of my home. My daughter and family moved into my home and I’m very lucky to have a landlord that allows me to basically do anything I want in my apartment as long as I keep the theme going.

  9. If you want to get your safety deposit back absolutely follow Tip #1 because altering anything without permission is an easy way for a landlord to keep that money even if there isn’t a repair that needs to be made. All these are great tips to keep in mind while renting an apartment or house though.

  10. Great lost cost tips are exactly what I need! I love good decorating tips!

    I love the tips! Although rental homes aren’t permanent, it doesn’t mean you can’t make it look good. This is a great reference.

    Great tips! Sharing with a friend who just moved to a rented property. Thanks šŸ™‚

  14. Great tips. It is sometimes sad when you cannot decorate a place you’d want to call home. However, you did mention some good work-arounds that would be acceptable for both renters and landlords/landladies.

  15. Nikki says:

    I experienced to decorate rent houses, and this post was right. Now were had our own and any time I could decorate my own without permission.

  16. CourtneyLynne says:

    These are some really great tips!!! We rented for years before buying and it can get tough sometimes decorating a space you can’t do permanent things too

  17. These are great tips. These tips can be used in any home not just a rental property. The third tip is great! I love re-purposing things.

  18. Raquel says:

    Those are pretty sensible tips. Iā€™m not renting a house anytime soon, but I can still apply it for redecorating.

  19. Tami says:

    We definitely need more storage space and better lighting in our home. We could always improve upon the other areas too.

  20. We’re living in our *first* rental home and I’m at a loss as to how to decorate without breaking the rules – these are great tips!
