As a renter, your options to update your home are limited - but that’s ok! We’ve put together a list of things that are only temporary and won’t infringe on your responsibilities. As always, your first port of call is to discuss any updates, edits or changes that you will be making with your landlord or property manager. Even temporary changes can leave damages which will eat away at your deposit. And before making any changes, remember to always care and look after your rental property!
Embrace removable wallpaper
A relatively new product to the market is removable wallpaper. Add a splash of colour to your space, such as on your kitchen backsplash, feature wall or even your outdated wardrobes. With so many trendy and colourful options to pick from, adding some removable wallpaper will surely lift your spirits! Top tip - add a test patch to your space first to check out if any damage will be done to the wall or cupboard.
Give temporary outdoor decking a go
Did you know that temporary outdoor decking and tiling is now a thing? These handy products come with easy to use clickable sections - meaning no tools are required and no existing flooring will be damaged.
Consider new curtains
Something quick and easy to update are your curtains! Curtains can really impact the light in your space, so be sure to consider this when you make the change.
Throw down a rug or two
A rug will quickly change the feeling of a room. Whether it’s something light, fun and colourful or warm and cozy for those winter months, a rug is an easy and temporary change to update your rental property without risking any damage!
Swap out your showerhead
(but remember to keep the old one!) If your current showerhead in your rental property just isn't doing it, consider purchasing a new one. It’s an easy change to make without causing any damage to the property - but if you aren’t sure, then have a chat with your property manager. Your YNM property manager is there to help you navigate the ins and outs of being a tenant and enjoying your rental property
