Last Updated on September 7, 2023 by Kravelv

Most people find solace in home, irrespective of whether it’s a rented apartment or their own home. They love to add and upgrade furniture to make the place more than a walled space. However, most of the times, we realize that the stuff we look out for is either expensive or might need heavy tools to install, which is not worth the investment and the effort. To solve this problem, we have provided 8 easy ways to upgrade your rental home.

  1. Cushions

Cushions are cozy and give a comfortable feeling to anyone. Also, more number of cushions organized in a proper manner add a different look to the room. These are cheap and can be kept anywhere in the house. So, get some colorful cushions and place them over a mattress or a rug to make a nice floor sit-out in the living room. Further, you can decorate your bedroom with different cushions that can be kept on the bed.

  1. Lights

If you can play with lights, then there is nothing that can beat the oomph factor you can bring into your home. Take some bottles, which you want to throw off and add some lights to it, or make your own night lamp with craft paper. You can make a chandelier with different bottles or paper sheets hung with strings and decorated with lights; these will definitely add a different note of luxury to your apartment.

  1. DIY Cartons

We all buy something or the other online, and then mostly throw the cartons away. What if we say you can use these to decorate your room? Paint these cartons, stick craft papers of different color, make a rack to keep stuff or make a simple shoe keeping area out of it. All these will accentuate the room, as they act as room decor at no extra cost.

  1. Balcony Sit-Out

If you have a balcony, then add some chairs or stools to it. If you do not wish to spend money on the furniture, then simply add a mattress and some cushions. You can keep some cartons of the same height, cover it with wood or mattress and add some cushions on it. This small cozy sit out in the balcony will make your rented home look more than the next-door PG or rental home.

  1. Curtains

A nice and a beautiful way to accentuate your home is to add different curtains to your room or living room or the area you wish to beautify. Curtains give a different look to the room and proper curtains add to the luxurious feel.

  1. Wall Posters

Whether you like Batman or Hulk, they both deserve space on your wall. Posters are a very easy way to deck up your rental flat in Bangalore. And they add a quirky personality to your living spaces, that few other home décor items can do. Plus, they are tres easy to put up on the wall.

  1. Flowers

When in doubt about your home décor, add some flowers. Plants can liven up any room, and whether you put them fresh cut in vases or have bonsais on tables or hang them from your balcony windows, they will always make life more colorful for you. Just make sure you ask your roommates in Bangalore if they are allergic to any flowers before you hang them up all over the house.

  1. Mirrors

Mirrors add a very vintage feel to any room. If you can’t put them up, you can just prop them against a wall and add some flowers or candles to the mix to create an instant eye-grabbing décor.
