Whether you are a military family or not, if you are renting, sometimes it can seem like it’s impossible to personalize the space. After all, you don’t want to do anything that would upset the landlord or the company that manages your property, do you?
That being said, you still want to be able to make your home a beautiful space, and personal for you and your family. This is especially important if you have a new addition on the way – every mom-to-be wants to create a beautiful nursery for her little one, it’s all part of the nesting phrase of pregnancy.
The question is, in a rented property, what’s the best way to go about designing a nursery that’s personalized but won’t annoy the landlord?
Pick a theme
First things first, select a theme for your baby’s nursery. If you know the sex of your new addition, picking a theme is somewhat easier, but even if you don’t know the baby’s sex, you can still create a beautiful space. In fact, sometimes gender neutral nurseries are better even if you know the baby’s sex, as that way you’re not overwhelmed with pink or blue. The best gender neutral themes include animals, nature – woodland, mountains, seas, neutral color schemes, and multi-colored designs.
Add style with wall art
You may not be able to paint the walls, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t create a beautiful nursery for your new addition. You will just need to be a little more creative, that’s all. Wall art is a lifesaver when it comes to decorating rented spaces because as long as you’re willing to fill in any holes you make when hanging pieces of art, you can transform the space. Remember, don’t forget to take your theme into account when it comes to choosing pieces of wall art.
Invest in quality furniture
When it comes to creating a beautiful nursery for your little one, picking out the perfect pieces of furniture is crucial. It’s amazing how the right furniture can give a nursery a completely different look and feel – it’s just a case of picking designs that work well with your chosen theme. For a wide selection of nursery furniture have a browse online – you can find some incredible pieces, such as these cots from Cuckooland, for instance.
Use accessories to personalize the space
To personalize the space without painting it, accessories are a must. It’s amazing how picking out the perfect selection of accessories can help you to create a nursery that has a wonderfully personal look and feel to it. Just because you can’t paint it, that doesn’t have to impact the style of the space. By combining stylish rugs, throws, cushions, ornaments, and curtains, you can create a nursery that’s both personal and stylish. For ideas and inspiration, Pinterest is a useful tool, as there’s plenty of images on there to browse through.
Just because your home is rented, it doesn’t mean that you can’t create a beautiful nursery for your new addition, it’s just a case of getting creative.
