Easy Ways to Personalize Your Apartment

Austin Apartment Specialists Card

When you rent, it may feel like you can't make a space truly yours, but with Apartment Therapy's tips, you can inject your #apartment with style using non-permanent changes.

You may not be able to paint the walls, but you can paint or add details to a piece of furniture you already have to make it, and your home, a lot more unique.

Removable wallpaper comes in a large variety of styles and can make a huge statement in your apartment.  Feeling like that's too much?  Framing a square of the non-removable variety of wallpaper can have a big impact as well.

Apartments often come with flooring that's past its prime.  By layering rugs over beat-up floors, you can make an eyesore a focal point.  Smaller rugs are often cheaper, so layering allows you to have high style without the big price tag.

Lamps are a must to bathe your home in beautiful light, which makes any rental look better and you can add light without adding holes to walls or ceilings.

Large art makes a large impression on a space, but it also tends to leave a large dent in your wallet.  So make your own!  If you can't hang things on your walls because it would leave holes or they're made of cinderblock, lean it against the wall.

Large mirrors will make your apartment look larger, lighter, brighter, and reflect what art and decor you already have.  Check out Craigslist, garage sales, estate sales, and thrift stores to find large frames for cheap.  Add a frame you've made yourself to make it unique

Often rental bathrooms and kitchens have zero personality.  Try injecting some by using temporary products on the backsplash.
