Decorating your Decatur rental home isn’t always an easy task. You don’t want to do anything permanent because it may upset your landlord, but you don’t want to spend a lot of money either. However, this doesn't mean you shouldn't spruce up your rental home to make it reflect your style and personality. DIY projects are a great way to make a home stand out without spending a lot of money.
An Undying Flower Arrangement
Flowers are ideal for brightening up a room and creating a homey feel in any space. Cutting brightly colored vellum or glassine into floral shapes quickly and easily creates beautiful flowers that will stand out. When attached to natural branches you find outside and arranged in a vase, you can decorate any surface with a delicate bouquet of flowers that won’t wilt and will make rental homes in Stone Mountain look more welcoming.
A Custom Doormat
A doormat is an ideal way to welcome people to your Decatur rental home. While you could always buy something that looks nice, you can save some money by creating your own custom mat designed particularly for your home. Purchasing a low-cost coir mat made from coconut husks and some enamel spray paint is all you need. You may also want to use stencils to create a design, the home’s address or a custom message on the mat.
Many tenants like to set out place settings at the table to give rental homes in Stone Mountain a home-like feel during their stay. Purchase linen napkins in an array of colors, fabric paint and stencils in a design that fits with the rest of your theme. After washing the napkins, use the stencils and apply the fabric paint to create beautiful napkins to adorn any table around your home.
Dress Up Candles
Candles can be a great way to create a unique atmosphere in rental homes. Purchase low-cost pillar candles in a light color. White or ivory works best, but any light color will create the right effect. You will also need a nonflammable, all-purpose glue stick and some blades of grass. You can pick some from the yard or grow specialized grass to use. Glue the grass stems to the side of the candles to create a fun new look for plain candles.
Decorating your Decatur rental homes doesn't have to be expensive. When you are personalizing your home, it’s important to find low-cost ways to decorate rental homes and make them feel more like home. With these and other DIY projects, you can create a cozy appearance and add your own style to your rental.
