When it comes to our homes, it’s easy to feel caught up in a rut with regards to how we style them. Now that we’re having to spend more time at home, we are able to focus our time and attention on creating a space that is unique and special to us.
And then there’s the problem of short-term rentals. Though they give us more freedom to move on quickly, living in a temporary home doesn’t mean that it cannot be personalized to suit your personality.
If space and longevity is not something you have the luxury of having at the moment, that doesn’t mean that you can’t introduce some real style into your home and turn a simple space into something fabulous and truly unique to you.
Here are some ways you can inject some personality into your home without having to commit to a complete style overhaul.
Tune into the Finer Details
Rental properties are not typically known for being top of the style rankings. If you’re lucky enough to land yourself into a plain decorated studio, that gives you a lot of scope to accessorize with some things that are both for utility and style.
If you want to create the illusion of separate rooms, why not see if you can thrift a room divider? If your kitchen area needs a little help, have a look at some fun but useful accessories such as under cabinet lighting or fun kitchen sponge holders.
If there’s not much room in the bedroom for anything other than a bed, then use throws and throw cushions to enhance your cozy space.
Go Big at Home
Many leased apartments do not allow for their tenants to decorate. This means that feature pieces are incredibly important. Large mirrors will not only look incredible, become a great frame for your insta outfit post, but they also create the illusion of a larger space than you have. They’re also something that can be taken into your next home.
Much like the chandeliers by Sogni Di Cristallo. These beautiful statement pieces that can really transform a place are an investment worth making as they can also be taken anywhere once they have been bought.
Multi Function is Key
When you’re limited on space, having the room to house all of the things you need may be challenging. However, a lack of square footage does not mean you have to miss out on having the functionality of certain pieces of furniture. Want to create a divide between the living room and the kitchen but are severely lacking in storage space? Get a wide bookcase that can be used to store kitchen equipment and cooking books while create a divide at the same time. Not enough surface space and want to sit down to eat at a table? Get yourself a counter height butchers block with stools that can be stored underneath. A surface for both preparing and eating food!
Living in a small space doesn’t mean you can’t also live in style. Following just a few of these tips can help you to live extra in your little home.
