40 Cheap Ways To Decorate A Rental

Hi friends! I’m Nicole, an Avon representative and 2 time home owner. I recently closed on my second home and wanted to share with you some cheap ways to decorate a rental space or a smaller home. With home prices skyrocketing, I felt this would do some good for many of us. 

1| Add an accent wall 


2|Change fluorescent lighting to track or recessed lighting


3|Create a man/woman cave in the garage (with help from your local TV installer)

4|Refinish kitchen countertops with faux granite (Home Depot or Lowe’s has it)

5|Change or paint kitchen cabinet knobs

6|Install  indoor/outdoor cameras that can be easily unmounted & controlled with an app 

7|Repaint baseboards white to highlight your wall color


8|Use large decals for wall art in smaller spaces (ceiling to floor height)

9|Pressure wash outdoor concrete or lay an outdoor rug (patio area)

10|Add some mulch, rock, or plant designs to small outdoor spaces 

11|Remove closet doors to open the room


12|Use LED strip lighting to light closet spaces

13|Hang curtains higher than the standard window

14|Install floating shelves and/or sconces to frame a focal point

15|Mount TV’s and use LED strip lighting behind them to create a beautiful focal


16|Separate small backyard space with a privacy fence

17|Remove standard closet rack and install custom closet storage

35|Use succulents to bring the outside in 

36|Replace box spring/mattress beds with platform beds 

37|Only buy furniture with storage solutions 

38|Make a list of storage places around the house and what will be stored there (memorize and amend that list)

40|Get rid of old sound systems, quality Bluetooth speakers are the present & future
