RENTERS have a few more hurdles to jump when decorating their space.
Renovations can get tricky as some landlords have strict rules on what can or can’t be done to their property.
But luckily there are a few tricks to maneuver around annoying landlords and design a chic space.
An interior designer shared her trick for upgrading your space for cheap, plus it won’t upset your landlord.
Home expert Clare McLaughlin shared what she called her “favorite ever rental hack” in a video.
McLaughlin used $13 peel-and-stick floor tiles from Amazon to instantly transform her friend’s kitchen from drab to lavish.
She explained that although the kitchen flooring was fine, the color of the tiles was too dull and darkening for a space without windows.
To start the process, McLaughlin said: “You want to wipe down the flooring and make sure it’s super dry, and from there it is so simple and actually really relaxing and fun to apply.
“Then you just put down the tiles. You can put them any way and they’re gonna match.”
McLaughlin added peel-and-stick chalking tape on high traffic areas for added reinforcement.
Lastly, she placed some heavy objects on the flooring to secure the floor overnight.
McLaughlin wrote in her video: “Look how much the colors in the floor brighten the entire kitchen!”
In the comment section, she wrote that the tiles are very easy to remove in case her friend decides to move out.
“Just peels right off with no residue,” McLaughlin added.
