Renter Design Options

Renters tend to lead a somewhat transient lifestyle, but that doesn’t mean you won’t want to do some changes to the property to make the house feel more like yours. But you needn’t sweat about losing your bond because there’s loads you can do with out leaving your permanent mark behind when you move out again. Shannon has a few suggestions that might help you out.

Timber Decking

These are hardwood tiles with an anti slip surface called the ‘decking timber tile system’. It’s essentially they’re an outdoor product but hey, why not, we can use them inside as well. They come in packs of 4 and you need the connecters which keep them all together. They’re a great idea for putting over tiles in your bathroom that are looking a bit shabby or even wooden floors that have gaps or holes in them, I think they’ll give your floor a bit of finesse.
Packs of 4 for $59.95 and the connecters come in packs of 6 for $16.95

Movable Benches

This is a moveable bench which is a good thing because it means that you can move it to any part of the house. It’s an extra prep area in the kitchen, it’s a wine store, extra storage space, you can use it in the bathroom, and the list goes on. Forhoja Kitchen Trolley $149.00

Fabric instead of Paint

This is simply a large cut of fabric to cover unattractive walls and give some colour to a plain room. They’re hung using removable hooks and a length of dowel from the hardware store.
Prices vary from Cloth Fabric

And the best part is that when you move you can move it all with you.
