Just because a place is rented does not mean that it shouldn’t feel like home. Renters should take time to plan out how they want their living space to look before their move in. To make the space homier, some critical elements to consider include lighting, wall space, common areas, and textiles like rugs, blankets, and curtains. Lamps and candles make excellent lighting sources for a cozy, welcoming atmosphere. Wall space shouldn’t be left blank, and it’s worth the investment to have at least one pricey textile. Additionally, try adding freshly cut flowers, and pick out your own knobs and handles for drawers and cabinets. These and other helpful tips will turn a house into a home, no matter how long your stay.
