Best Ways to Decorate a Rental Kitchen

Best Ways to Decorate a Rental Kitchen

Renting your home has its ups and downs. You aren't responsible for maintenance or yardwork, but there are severe limits to making it feel like home. Because I just moved and am going to be decorating a new place, I thought I would start a new series on how to make a rental feel like home. Starting with the kitchen. Mostly because it's the only room I currently have in decent shape.

Before you start, always check with your landlord about what you are and are not allowed to do. All of the solutions I will offer here are based on not being able to do much of anything permanently. If your landlord gives you permission to make alterations such as painting, make sure to get it in writing before you start.

The kitchen in most rentals is awash with all things white and vinyl. There are some simple things you can do to update your kitchen without breaking the bank.

Change the hardware. If your kitchen cabinets have knobs, switch them out for something more your style. Make sure to save the old hardware so you can put those back before moving out.

Pier 1 has some great knobs from $4-$6 each.
