A rental home can be great for many reasons but in one area, you can suffer. Because you do not own the property, you simply cannot make any changes to it that are permanent. This seriously weakens your ability to customize the property and make it your own. However, there are many ways you can spruce up the bathroom in a rental to make it reflect you and make the place seem a bit more like a home. Follow these tips to get started and always ask your landlord before doing anything that may be permanent.
- For added storage and style, put a free-standing storage unit in your bathroom. This is a way to add storage in a stylish way. Unfortunately, this only works if you have the space needed in the bathroom already.
- Add an additional mirror to the bathroom. This will really open up the space to make it appear larger. If you do not have a lot of space to begin with, you may also want to consider just putting a mirror on the back of the bathroom door.
- Decorate the bathroom. A lot can be done with a few items, especially in a small space such as a bathroom. You can put in a shower curtain that adds style and you can put in a rug or bath mat that covers up the unsightly floor. Use your imagination and be sure to decorate the bathroom in a way that reflects your personal style.
No matter how you improve the bathroom, as a renter, you need to have rental insurance to make sure all of your belongings are covered. If you do not currently have coverage, call Martin Insurance Team serving Evergreen Park, IL, to explore your insurance options.
