Make Your Apartment Feel Like a Home (Without Getting the Landlord Angry)

As the saying goes, “Home is where the heart is.” But can you really put your “heart” into a place that you’re only renting? Actually, with a little imagination and creativity you can. As a renter, all of your decorating limitations could be spelled out in your lease agreement. Even though there might be clauses against painting or hanging things, there is nothing wrong with asking for permission to do those very things. If you have a good relationship with your landlord, you might be able to gain a little leeway. On the other hand, sometimes is better to ask for forgiveness than for permission. (Just don’t tell your landlord we said that!)

Here are some terrific decorating ideas to make your apartment feel like a home.
