The owners of rented apartments are different: someone allows you to create in the rented four walls whatever your heart desires, and someone does not allow you to make minimal cosmetic repairs even for the money of the tenants. Based on this, the possibilities of tenants are strikingly different: someone can repaint the walls, throw out all the old furniture and arrange the house the way they want, someone cannot even take out an old creaky chair in the trash. But everyone wants to live in a cozy and pleasant-looking apartment. That is why in today's article we have collected 10 practical tips for decorating and concerning, first of all, decor and everything that even the most strict owner cannot prohibit. Hang a mirror A rented apartment is alwaysgiven, and often does not correspond to the idea of ​​ideal housing. You have to cope with low ceilings, small windows, pencil cases and lack of light on your own, and the notorious mirrors are the best helpers in this. Vintage or modern, large or small, framed or not - buy at least one that matches the style of your apartment and hang it next to a lighting fixture or in front of a window: the mirror will not only "catch" the light and fill the room with it, but also visually increase the space. Lay a new rug If only from the owners youdid not get a dusty Soviet carpet, firmly nailed to the floor, replace the existing copy with the one you like. Or even a few. And if there is no carpet at all in the new dwelling, then all the more it is worth going in search of a new one: it will not only be more pleasant to walk on the floor with bare feet, but the room will also become brighter, and the interior as a whole will be fresher. Use wallpaper ... for other purposes.With exceptions, gluing wallpaper in a rented apartment is an unprofitable occupation, but if you nevertheless decided to take this step, do not rush to throw out the leftovers. They, like those purchased / left over from previous repairs / found from friends, can be used in the decorating process. Using scraps to decorate boxes or drawers, wallpapering a screen or backs of shelves, cutting out rectangles, placing in frames and hanging on the wall instead of paintings are just a small part of the list of budget DIY ideas. Replace door handles Replace handles as perfurniture, and on the doors - a favorite technique of professional designers. Indeed, just one small detail can transform an old Soviet wardrobe or a standard IKEA chest of drawers. If you don't have the opportunity to devote time to looking for unusual new pens, you can paint the existing ones with gold or bronze paint (it is sold in any art store) or add beautiful fringed brushes as decoration. Hang photos Interior of a rented apartmentit is distinguished, first of all, by impersonality, which gives rise to that very uncomfortable feeling and associations with the hotel. That is why, with the help of decor, you must first of all bring your own character into the interior and add individuality to it. The easiest way to do this is with the help of photographs dear to your heart from the family archive. You can place them either in frames on the wall or on shelves, or make yourself a simple structure for a mini-exhibition. Idea to keep in mind: To make your photos look stylish and harmonious, turn them in black and white and then print. Liven up the interior with textiles Textiles are reala lifesaver for everyone who wants to update or transform the interior.
