10 Ways to Make Your Rental House a Home, Regardless of How Long You Plan on Living There


Rental House

It’s no surprise that your rental house doesn’t feel like a home. After all, you’re not there to enjoy the space and you don’t have the time or money to invest in updates. But even if you’ve never lived in a rental before, it’s not too late! You don’t have to settle for bare walls (or worse), scratched furniture, and mismatched linens. Here are our top 10 tips for making your rental house feel like home:
Make it clean and organized.

Clean and organized.

If you’re moving into an old house, it’s important to clean up before you move in. This can be as simple as cleaning the walls and floors with a broom or mop (if they’re not already clean), vacuuming the carpets, and removing cobwebs from corners. If any large items need to be moved out of storage (like furniture), consider hiring someone else to do so while you focus on other tasks such as unpacking boxes and putting things away where they belong.
Once all of this has been done, take some time now that everything is set up for your new home’s first family member—you!—to get organized by organizing closets like never before using storage bins or baskets in various sizes; this will help prevent clutter from building up over time since everything won’t be hanging out everywhere at once anymore!

Add plants to every room.

Adding plants to your rental house can do a lot more than just make a space look nice. They’re also great for purifying the air, making it easier for you to breathe in and out. Plants are also an easy way to add some greenery without having to worry about whether or not you have enough space in your home (or if there will be room when guests come).
You can use plants as an accent or centerpiece depending on what kind of look you want—or both! If they are used as an accent, think about using things like succulents or cacti; these types tend not only to look good but smell nice too! It’s important that whatever type of plant(s) you choose should compliment each other well so they don’t overpower one another visually/adorably speaking.”

Make sure you have sufficient lighting.

Use lamps and ceiling lights to create the mood you want, whether it’s relaxing or energizing.
If you don’t have enough lighting in your living room, try out a night light that can be used as a reading lamp or just to help get everyone settled down for bed at night.
Be creative with your lighting! You can use dimmers to create different moods for different activities (for example, when cooking dinner).

Upgrade your appliances.

Invest in energy-efficient appliances. Whether you’re looking for a new dishwasher or dryer, there are a lot of options out there that will save you money and help the planet.
Get the latest model of everything. You don’t have to buy the most expensive model when it comes to appliances—but if you can afford it, do it! You’ll get better results from your investment by investing in newer technology instead of staying on an older model that may be more affordable but less efficient than what’s out there now.
Buy right-sized equipment for your space and cleanliness needs: If space is limited (or nonexistent), then make sure every inch counts as far as where things go when not being used; this includes having enough refrigerator space so that leftovers aren’t forgotten about until they spoil all over themselves; also consider how much countertop real estate there should be available since we often use our kitchen table tops as dining areas during meals – try not wasting precious square footage by cramming too many stools around one area!

Rental House

Use removable wallpaper on an accent wall.

Removable wallpaper is a great way to add some personality to your space. You can use it as an accent wall, or even just as a place for family photos. If you’re looking for a temporary solution while you’re searching for the right permanent solution (or even if it’s just something fun), removable wallpaper is an excellent choice.
You can use removable wallpaper on any wall in the house—except maybe ceilings! It’s great because if something happens and you need to move out before the paper has dried completely, no one will notice unless they look at every inch of their living room floor by hand.

Paint the walls (if you can.)

Painting is one of the best ways to make your rental feel more like home. If you are renting and have the right kind of permission, painting can be a great way to inject some color into your space.
But check with your landlord first! If they’re not too happy about it or think it damages their investment property somehow… well… that’s a different story entirely.
Once you’ve gotten approval from them (or not), choose a color that is neutral enough so that everyone will appreciate it regardless of their tastes—and easy enough for yourself and others in the house to live with if need be!
Change up the knobs and pulls on kitchen cabinets, drawers, and any other hardware if possible.
If you’re using a style that’s more modern than traditional, like the one I have in my kitchen, try changing up the knobs and pulls on kitchen cabinets, drawers, and any other hardware if possible.
If your rental house has a lot of dark woodwork or hardwood floors (or both), consider making them brighter by painting them white. This will make them look less cluttered while still giving off an airy feeling. Another option is to use different materials like metal instead of wood on doors—it’s all about personalizing!

Install a backsplash.

A backsplash is a decorative tile that can add color and style to your kitchen. It’s easy to find, but you may want to consider the type of backsplash you want before shopping for it. You can go with a simple color or pattern, or you can get more involved with intricate designs that look like they were made by a professional artist.
You’ll find backsplashes at your local home improvement store that are already pre-cut into various shapes and sizes—you just need to install them on the wall behind your sink or stovetop (or wherever else you’d like them).

Hang mirrors in each room.

Mirrors are an easy way to add depth and texture to a room, but they can also make it feel bigger. To make the most of your mirror purchases, hang them in each room of your rental house.
Hang one or two large mirrors on the wall opposite from where you’ll be sitting when you shower or use the toilet. This will give your bathroom an open feel as well as make it seem larger than it is because of how much light is reflected at you from these surfaces (and also adding some interest).
Hang smaller framed mirrors above sinks or cabinets so that when someone opens up their cabinets for cleaning supplies or food items something is interesting for them to look at while they do so—this may encourage them not just to keep those things organized but put them away!
Lay down a rug or two (or more!) in each room that needs a little extra warmth to warm things up.
Rugs are a great way to add warmth and color to your home. They also provide texture, which can help define spaces in a room. Think about how the rug you chose for your living room will affect the flow of traffic through it: if there’s any space that needs to feel more open or closed off, rugs can help guide people toward one direction or another.


When choosing rugs for bedrooms (or any other room), think about how they might change their appearance as they age over time—if you have kids running around often, then certain materials may fade faster than others; if pets spend time in these rooms on occasion…you get the idea!
These steps make it easy to create a home away from home, wherever you are!
Renting a home is not the same as owning one. While renting a house might seem like the same thing, it’s not. You don’t own your rental property—at least not until you’ve paid off all your debt and other expenses related to buying and maintaining it.
While renting might be temporary, these 10 tips will help make your rented home feel like home:
Get organized early on in the process of moving into any new place by putting away things that take up space (like boxes) or taking care of household chores while they’re still fresh in your mind so they don’t get forgotten later on down the line when life gets busy again!


Designing your rental home should be a fun, creative process. There are many ways to make your house look like a home—from changing out hardware, adding furniture and hardware, and painting the walls—but one of the most important things is getting organized! Once you’ve taken care of all these steps, it will be easy for you (and your guests) to settle into any lifestyle that suits their needs.
