Your Florida Rental Property Like Your Own
Five Ways To Make Your Rental Property Feel Like Your Own. Settling into a Florida home that isn’t your own can be challenging. Since you don’t own the home, you are limited as to what you can do to make it feel like home. Let’s talk about a few things you can do to personalize your rental space and make it more comfortable for you and your family.
1. Paint some accent walls in the color of your choice. Nothing will enhance your home and make it feel more warm and inviting than a custom painted accent wall or two. Ask your landlord for the original paint color of the walls so you can paint over your custom color when you move.
2. You could add some potted plants to your patio or balcony. Additionally, you could add some patio furniture, a bench and some screening for privacy.
3. If your lease is coming up for renewal, ask your landlord if he would consider installing a new ceiling fan, light fixture or faucet of your choosing in exchange for signing a one year lease.
4. If your rental property has a yard, consider planting some flowers or adding a few shrubs of your choice. Some decorative ground cover is also a nice touch.
5. Consider building each room around a theme. You could use a coffee theme for your kitchen by placing coffee related items such as decorative hand towels, coffee themed canisters or any other coffee related decor for your countertops and walls. In your den, you could have a chess or billiard theme. Or, perhaps you could build your interior decor around your favorite color.
You could also use your favorite hobby as a theme and build each room with decor that relates to your hobby. There are many unique ideas that could be used to make your rental property feel more like your own. Hang some curtains or put down some area rugs, hang a seasonal wreath on your front door; a decorative front door mat is a nice touch as well. All of these little things add up to a quaint, comfortable place that feels like home.
Customizing your rental home can be fun and exciting. However, before you do anything, you will need to check your lease to find out if there are any restrictions against what you want to do. In addition, you should check with your landlord verbally to confirm exactly what you can and can’t do. If your landlord makes an exception to the lease, you should request a copy of the revision in writing. And remember, any changes you make will need to be put back to their original condition when you move out unless otherwise stated by your landlord.
If you’re thinking about moving into a new rental home, contact your realtor for a list of available rentals in your area. He will customize a list of rentals for you that will meet the specific criteria you have given him.
