Make The Most Of Your Personal Space In A Shared Rental

Published: November 16th, 2015

When you share a home with others whilst renting, it can be hard bringing your own style and flavour with you.


Take a look at our 4 tips to make the most of your personal space in a shared rental.

1. Floor Coverings

Adding a rug can be a great way to give your space some life. This is a great way to add style to your room as you can choose from a range of colours, patterns and fabrics. Once you start shopping around you will be amazed at the options available. This is an inexpensive option and is easy to remove or take with you if you decide to pack up or change your style.

2. Windows

If you’re allowed to change the window coverings it can be a great way to add your own personal style to your space. Whether it’s new curtains or blinds, the ability to choose a particular fabric, colour and overall look means you can make your space individual to you.

3. Framed images

If you have an agreement with your landlord to add some framed prints to your rental, opt for images that are lightweight so you can hang them with removable hooks. This is a great way to add some life to your space and is an eye catching element of interior design.

4. Accessories 

One of the best ways to add style in a rental property is to incorporate accessories. Photographs, bedside lamps, standing photo frames, cushions or ornamental objects will add a personal touch that makes your space more inviting. If you can add a feature light this can make your room look even more enticing.
