How to Decorate Your Apartment Without Breaking the Lease

Many apartments start out plain and boring. When you move in, it is natural to want to make the space your own. But you often run up against restrictions in your lease. While you may not be able to change the paint color, remodel the kitchen, or knock out a wall, you can still personalize your apartment in creative ways. Consider these simple tricks to make your apartment your home.

Change out the hardware.
You can replace knobs, drawer pulls, and handles in the kitchen and bathroom. Be sure to measure carefully and find replacements that don’t require you to drill new holes. Light fixtures can also be swapped out. Turn off the power at the circuit breaker box or consult an electrician for help with rewiring a light. With any change, be sure to carefully store the original fixtures to swap back when you move out.

Update your plumbing fixtures.
You can replace shower heads and sink faucets to update the look of your bathroom or kitchen. Avoid any work that requires soldering. Consult with a plumber for help if you are unsure of doing the work yourself.

Paint your furniture.
You may not be able to paint your walls, but you can paint your furniture. Adding color to chairs, chests, desks, tables, or dressers can add a pop of color without doing anything permanent to the room. If that is still not enough color for you, add some bright throw pillows to your beds and couch.

Brighten up your windows.
Add some life to your room by putting up unique and beautiful window treatments, blinds, and interesting curtain rods. If you really want to change the look of a room, install long curtains that reach to the floor. This gives you the most bang for your buck.
