Fall is finally here, which means it’s time to pull out your cozy sweaters and your collection of hot cocoa mugs. While decorating for the season can be incredibly fun, it can feel like a challenge to put your decorations up if you’re living in a rented space. And when you consider that almost 27% of people are renting their homes, it’s a pretty common struggle. If you’re unsure how to decorate in your rented home, here are a few tips to help you out.
One of the biggest issues with decorating in a rented space is that in many cases, you’re not allowed to put any holes in the walls. This means hanging any kind of garland or artwork can feel out of the question. Fortunately, there are plenty of solutions that can help you keep your art up on the walls without putting holes in them. First and foremost are adhesive strips. Theses sticky strips are designed to have maximum wall-gripping power without doing any kind of damage to the paint on the walls. So if you want to hang a framed painting or print that reminds you of the fall season, this is an excellent way to hang it up on the walls without violating your lease in any way. Adhesive strips are also an excellent way to hang garlands or dried flowers on your walls to get into the autumn spirit. You definitely wouldn’t be the first to hang fall decor this way either, considering that almost 43 million housing units are occupied by renters in similar situations.
Throw pillows are an excellent way to add a little bit of seasonal style to your home. And if your big furniture pieces are already a neutral color, autumn hues will offer a nice pop of vibrancy against your sofa, chairs, or bedspread. The key is to select throw pillows that will complement the furniture you have, but will also add a touch of autumnal goodness to the entire place. Patterned throw pillows are also a good option if you want a cute phrase displayed on your sofa or in your bedroom. And if you’re not ready to invest in a whole new set of throw pillows or you just don’t have the storage for them, decorative pillowcases are definitely a purchase worth considering. With decorative pillowcases for your throw pillows, you have the opportunity to customize all of your throw pillows for any seasonal activity.
The average person moves every five to seven years or so. That means it’s not necessarily a good idea to accumulate a lot of material possessions just so you can decorate for each season. That’s where fresh flowers come into the picture. When you add fresh flowers to a room, you’re bringing a little bit of life into your space. And when autumn rolls around, you have the opportunity to bring flowers like chrysanthemums, ranunculus, and sunflowers into your home. You can even head outside and grab some colorful clippings to arrange in a vase. The best part? Even if you choose to dry your flowers and save them, these items don’t take up a lot of storage space and can always be replaced with fresher flowers. So if you have a local florist you love, make it a priority to get some of their blooms into your home as the seasons change.
Decorating a rented space can feel like a bit of a unique challenge. With these tips, you should be ready to decorate your space for fall in no time.
