Easy Ways to Personalize Your Rental Home

One of the best parts about making a house your home is customizing it to your liking! While permanent fixtures and features of the home cannot be altered, you can take advantage of these easy updates.

Adding a rolling island is an easy and aesthetically pleasing way to gain more food prep and entertaining space in your kitchen.

If your home includes a breakfast bar or an island, including some fun barstools is sure to add personality to your kitchen!

A colorful and cozy rug can make all the difference in a living room, bedroom or even kitchen. While rugs can be expensive, Target, World Market and Ikea all offer affordable choices.

Similar to how rugs can liven up a space, curtains are not only great for privacy, but are another great option for personalizing your home.
We love these options from World Market and Walmart.

Bookcases and Shelves
Shelving and bookcases can be the answer to your storage needs! Not to mention, there are a lot of attractive bookcases to choose from out there. Creating a DIY bookcase or shelf, or even refurbishing a thrift store find, is a very cost-effective option!
