Finding a place to live can be a daunting task, be it renting or owning a house. While renting a property comes with a number of benefits, there are setbacks and compromises. There are limitations when it comes to decorating and furnishing the unit, as most landlords wouldn’t allow permanent changes. A Malaysian has shared how she transformed her rented house into a Mid-Century Bohemian home without making permanent changes, along with a few tips that will save you a fortune.
Decorate Your Rental Home Into A Mid-Century Bohemian Crib With These Useful Tips:
Most of us dream of living in a home with a touch of our personality, be it owned or rented. While achieving this dream is more difficult with rented space, given constraints on the lease, it’s not impossible. Zalira has shared with us how she decorated her 1400sqft landed property into a Mid-Century Bohemian home in Selangor without any renovations.
If you’re a renter, you’ll know that most of the rental properties in the market are either unfurnished or comes with old, hideous decor. Revamping the whole space with new furniture can burn a hole in your pocket. Zalira revealed that most of her furniture is sourced second-hand. You can get most of them at a good price online or from Facebook Marketplace.
Old furniture is basically a diamond in the rough. With a little DIY, they can look brand new and add personality to your space. Earth-toned is highly recommended to create a zen ambiance, just like her wood-toned and rattan furniture. It’s the key furnishing that brings the whole space together.
Adding houseplants to your space is also essential when it comes to Mid-Century Bohemian designs. Not only will they bring your space to life and boost overall well-being, but they also create a cozy, harmonious vibe. Plus, houseplants are inexpensive and easy to maintain.
More Tips & Tricks:
If you think earth-toned furnishing and houseplants are too boring, consider adding small statement pieces to brighten up the space. For example, small bright-coloured rugs and paintings, cushion cover, or throws with prints. These small pieces will add a touch of your own personality.
For those who are living in a smaller unit, you can save up some space with multifunctional furniture and storage baskets. They are easy to source and affordable.
For Zalira, her beautiful home has opened up some opportunities for her. She has hosted a few media and rented her space (eg: living room) for filming purposes.
