How to Create a Comfortable Home
Every time we move to a new place we enjoy the thrill of making new spaces and getting settled in. Moving gives us a great opportunity to redecorate while we reinvent our personal style and buy new things for our homes that we may have been eyeballing for a while. Most of us, at one point or another, have lived in rental properties. As much fun as we have with the process of moving and redecorating, we can struggle with making those rental properties that we live in feel like a real home. Since that is the end goal of most decorating, it is critical that we achieve it.
There are times when we will need a bit of assistance while we make these alterations…especially during the holidays when we are also trying to get all of the cooking, shopping and cleaning done…not to mention the traveling for those of us who make trips home during this time of year. It is quite possible that there are a few projects that you will not want to fall through the cracks, even if you don’t have the time or energy that is necessary to get the done. Here is a quick look at a few of the things that you can hire people to get these projects done for you.
Lighting is an easy yet high impact way to make your home a bit more you. Use it to highlight the style that you have brought with you to your new abode. The best part of this option is that when you move again, you can take it with you. When you want to personalize your spaces, get new lighting fixtures.
Always ask your landlord before painting. That said, if the color scheme is off, then nothing will ever seem right. If you do paint the walls, don’t forget the door frames and base boards. You might even opt for painting the kitchen cabinets and doors if the landlord doesn’t have an issue with it. It never hurts to ask too. The worst they can do is say no.
Window treatments and the hardware on your cabinets and drawers are also great ways to personalize your space to make it seem more like home.
