Decorating Your Rental Home for the Holidays

{{ post.title }}

Marina Shlomov - Wednesday, November 26, 2014

The holidays are quickly approaching, and it’s time to consider your holiday décor. When it comes to rental homes, decorating can be a challenge because you may be limited on space and can’t do anything that creates permanent changes. Fortunately, there are many creative options you can use, even when you live in homes for rent in Decatur, Georgia.

Fresh Greenery

While you can always buy artificial greenery for your holiday décor, fresh is always a good way to put you in the holiday mood. Not only will you get the brilliant pop of green color around your home, but you will also get the refreshing scent of pine throughout your residence. Use the greenery as garland for staircases or over windows or use some to create your own wreath, decorating it with ornaments or other pieces of nature synonymous with the holidays, such as berries.

Your Tree

Many people enjoy putting up a tree to decorate for the holidays. Be sure to check whether you are allowed to have a real tree or whether you are limited to artificial trees. A real tree can be a beautiful, scented addition to any home, but it’s important to keep it well watered to keep it from drying out.


The tabletops and other flat surfaces around homes for rent in Decatur, Georgia, make the ideal location for a variety of décor options. Scented candles can help set the mood and create ambiance, especially when you invite guests over. Choose holiday-themed runners and bring in pieces of nature, such as pine cones and greenery to place around the tables or create a centerpiece. A clear vase filled with colorful ball ornaments is another great alternative.


Even when living in rental homes, you can use your windows to help you decorate for the holidays. Use this area to hang wreaths or garland without causing damage to the walls. Battery-powered candlesticks, ornaments, strings of lights and window clings all look great in windows as well. You can even add a little spray-on snow for the full effect.

The Exterior

Homes for rent in Decatur, Georgia, can make it difficult to decorate the exterior; however, you can easily create the right atmosphere with a few quality pieces of décor. Just be mindful of your neighbors and don’t choose anything overwhelming, especially when it comes to lights. Purchase drill-free hangers and line your home with lights. Consider investing in a couple of lawn ornaments that put you and the people who live around you in the holiday spirit. When it comes to decorating outside, less is more.

Holiday décor in rental homes doesn’t have to be much different than what you would use in your own home. As long as you aren’t making holes in the walls or causing damage to the property, there’s no limit to how you can decorate for the upcoming holidays.
