Soon I’ll be moving into a new apartment and since I’m the queen of do it yourself decor, I’ve been researching thrifty ways of spicing up my rental. I’m always on a budget so I like to be affordable while still keeping things cute.
One of my biggest pet peeves about a new apartment is the carpet. Since you’re renting, there’s only so many requests you can make; however, what color you want your carpet to be usually isn’t an option. Yes, area rugs are cool, but what about taking things up a notch with hard wood floors? Usually if the complex upgrades the flooring before you’re move in, it reflects in them sky rocketing your rent! That’s a HEEEELLLLL NAWWWLL for me, so I had to find another way!
Thanks to the world wide web, I successfully found a solution. It does involve a little bit of carpentry, but it’s nothing too difficult if you like do it yourself home projects. Keep in mind, every situation has it’s risks, so BE CAUTIOUS in anything you do AT HOME.
Everyone isn’t at a point to buy a home. so it’s nice to be able to do little things to make your rental suitable to your standards and personality. Hopefully this suggestion brings you some versatility!
