1. Don’t buy everything all at once
One of the first things you see when you are in a new home are the bare walls and open spaces that you immediately want to fill. While wanting to make your house a home is ideal, don’t go crazy spending all of your money at once just to decorate every inch of your house. The only thing that will make you feel is stressed. Start with slowly buying a few pieces as you go along to match your style, see what fits where, and it won’t break the bank. Another awesome option is to rent the décor for the same length of time you are renting your place. Domain rental furnishings has a large variety of styles furniture and décor to fit you and save you a ton of money.
2. Don’t make excuses to not decorate
The next thing to NOT do is make a bunch of excuses to not even decorate at all. “Oh I will only be here for a year I don’t need to decorate” “I can’t put any nails in the walls so I can’t hang anything” “I can’t decide what style I want my house to have” These are all popular excuses to keep your rental from feeling like your home. DON’T BE THAT PERSON. You may not be there long but decorating your rental will make you feel more comfortable and relaxed. There are so many options besides nails or nonabrasive hooks to be able to hang so many any décor, so don’t let no nails keep you from feeling at home in your rental. Being indecisive is a very understandable excuse, but just remember renting décor and furniture is a simple fix to wanting to change out your décor if you do not like it after a few weeks. Domain rental furnishings gives you an easy option to find your style without forcing you to resell items or lose money by getting rid of them! Our styles change all the time why should your décor not fit who you are in your home?
3. Review your lease
Now that we got past the no nail excuse, it is important to review your lease and speak with your landlord to understand what you can and can’t do to your rental. Many landlords allow you to paint as long as colors are approved ahead of time. Painting can change up your space the most and doesn’t cost a lot! As we said earlier there are many nonabrasive options to hang décor without nailing into the walls, do some research find what works for your décor. Command hooks are honestly a time saver and a life saver when you can’t use nails.
4. Start with the big pieces
Large canvases and tapestries take up a lot of space while still giving you a variety that can fit your style. Add some fun curtains to the windows to spruce up your walls! Domain has a large selection of big décor pieces to fill any space you need. Plus, they can even order something specifically for you if you can’t find what you are looking for!
5. Fine tune the small details and choose pieces you love
Next step is filling in the small spaces and changing up smaller details. The best smaller space filler… picture frames! Adding photos of you, your loved ones, your pets, places you’ve been are things that can make you feel the most at home. Then start adding smaller vases, bowls, figurines, candle holders, and tabletop signs to your shelving and end tables. We cannot stress enough the huge variety Domain Rental Furnishings has for décor, plus the ease of renting your décor and giving it back when your lease is up is unreal!
6. Don’t stress that it isn’t perfect
Stop comparing your home to your friends, family, bloggers or celebrities’ homes. They are at different phases of life, have different jobs, and simply aren’t YOU! Find what works for you and run with it! Domain can help you run with whatever style you decide.
