9 Affordable Ways to Add More Personality to Your Rental

I’ve become interior obsessed lately and constantly find myself fighting the desire to embark on a dramatic project. Unfortunately I don’t have anywhere to channel this creative energy, because I’m currently living in my childhood bedroom whilst I save to buy my own place, so I have to live vicariously through Pinterest.

If you’re also limited in what you can do when it comes to interiors – whether that’s because you’re renting or living with family – here are 9 simple and affordable ways to add more personality to your space without going wild…

Don’t like your carpeting? No problem. Disguise unappealing flooring with inexpensive rugs in bold and funky patterns. Urban Outfitters have a surprisingly brilliant selection, as do Oliver Bonas and IKEA. Image via .

Everyone has gone crazy for bar carts lately, and it’s easy to see why. They add a playful and retro touch to living spaces and are easily repurposed too. If you rarely entertain at home display magazines, makeup and shoes on a bar cart instead. Image via .

If you’re desperate for a gallery wall, but can’t leave too many marks, get creative and prop artwork against walls or group together on shelves. Just remember that less is often more: the finished result should look well-thought-out rather than cluttered. Image via .

Make a feature of your shelving if you’re a bit of a bookworm and organise your literary collection by colour. The rainbow effect is incredibly cheerful and can be made even more special when you break up the display with interesting objects and fashion accessories. Image via .

No space should go ignored, so make the most of empty corners by displaying flowers, plants and statement heels on top of stacks of magazines and coffee table books. Image via .

Make a bold statement with a decorative feature light. They look fantastic hung over dining tables, and needn’t be expensive. The light shade pictured to the right is from IKEA and was spray-painted white for maximum impact. Image via .

Soft furnishings are the easiest way to give your home an on-trend update, so splash out on some bold cushions or bedding. Banana and palm leaf motifs are currently THE hot interior look, and H&M Home is the place to go if you want in on the style. Image via .
