More and more people are opting for an house for rent rather than for an actual purchase at present.
Sono sempre di più le persone che optano per una casa in affitto anzichè per un acquisto vero e proprio.
La cosa è dettata un lato dalla particolare situazione economica del periodo, che non incoraggia affatto gli investimenti a lungo termine, dall’altro a un cambio di mentalità che ci ha portato ad essere molto più flessibili e nomadi rispetto ai nostri genitori, magari a cambiare lavoro molto più spesso e a cercarlo in città diverse rispetto a quella di nascita.
Vivere in una casa in affitto ha dei limiti oggettivi, i padroni di casa nella maggior parte dei casi chiedono ai propri affittuari di lasciare la casa nelle stesse condizioni in cui è stata trovata, ma non per questo dobbiamo rinunciare alla possibilità di personalizzare la casa in cui viviamo, anche se in affitto.Basta fare ovviamente attenzione a fare delle modifiche che siano removibili nel tempo…magari non ci avete mai pensato, ma ci sono un sacco di modi per decorare casa in modo reversibile, e ho raccolto i miei preferiti oggi nel post 10+ ideas:
1 original wall hangings
This is a common way for decorating home. Just hang some mirrors, wall art, frames and you room will change immediately look.
However, it’s not so good to damage walls by leaving holes on it, a solution could be to use those wall hooks with a strong double-sided tape behind, you can find lots of them in commerce.
But there are so many lighter and easy way for temporary decorating your walls…look for example at this amazing paint chips I’ve discovered in Aparthment Therapy, or this wall wire decor found in TrendHunter
2 gallery wall
This is one option for wall decor I love so much!
You can choose a gallery wall of prints (first image via), or maybe something different as well…
maybe some plates, as in this images from Remodelista?
For example, in my home I have a gallery wall all about vintage plaques and I love it!
3 vynil wall decals
An easy and fast option for decorating a wall.
I love them, my favourite are those with city cut-outs or some text on them. (in black and white, of course)
These for example are ones from Evergreen Orange, I’ve posted about here few time ago
4 washi tape wall decor
I still haven’t tried this at home even if I love the samples I see in the web of this trendy (and completely removable) way for decorating walls.
I love those washi tape motifs with geometric decor, or with a colourful striped pattern (as for example this one by BohoDecoChic)…
but why not trying to create some wall frames with it? (these tape frames are by Design*Sponge )
5 removable wallpaper
Maybe you didn’t know about this. I’ve recently discovered it though This Little Street blog and it look fabulous: the one you see in the picture is by Spoonflower, but you can find many other kind of removable wallpaper like here, here and here.
There are really many different kind of decor to choose, from colourful to subtle, to chalckboard for example…and most important thing,
they are completely removable!
6 fabric or wrapping paper as wallpaper
A great alternative to wallpaper that can be used as a temporary wall treatment solution is fabric.
You can find a quick DIY “tutorial” for placing fabric on a wall in Numbered Street Designs blog…I’m not so sure I would be able to do this with my bad manual skill, but maybe you are good in DIY and you can try it by yourself!
7 decor with rugs
8 decor with pillows
9 decor with curtains
10 work with…your own furniture!
There are many tricks you can adopt while furnishing your rental home.
For example, if you have a set of matching furniture, swap out pieces in different rooms. Maybe your bedside tables can work wall besides the sofa, and near your bad you can place a small coffee table…
If you don’t have enough space, don’t be afraid to push furniture against the wall, for example you can add a sofa table between the sofa and the wall, or you can place a low chest under the windows as well… Also, you can buy storage cubes, bins, or baskets that can become as a coffee table.
