Blog » Ideas For Rented Properties

Renting in an area like Kilmarnock makes it tricky for your house or flat to feel like your home. Of course renting is a whole different ball game than buying, you will always feel slightly different about a place when it isn't actually yours for keeps but at the same time with a bit of creativity it is possible to make a house your home even if you don't own it.

An understanding landlord is helpful of course. It's difficult when you aren't able to add fixtures and fittings or decorate to suit your style. Have a word with your landlord and ask if there are a few simple changes you can make and always offer to put it back as was when you leave.

I am a landlord and I am truly happy for my tenants to make small changes to the place as long as it benefits them and me. Generally they are looking to improve their own living space and make it theirs. I am happy for them to make the best of the space they have and I'm sure many landlords would feel the same way.

I wouldn't agree to a red room or anything of course. Stick to neutral, heritage colours and you're onto a winner.

Creative Ideas For Small Rented Apartments

Think small sofas, coffee tables and chairs. You can pick up some great smaller pieces that will really enhance your space. Don't over fill the walls if you are dealing with a smaller space as this will only make it look smaller. A couple of additions are great. See how well this arrangement works. The simple blind is stylish but minimalist, perfect for a small space. Rugs are a great way to add a bit of extra interest to a room.
