Turning a Rental into a Home

When you’re looking for a new home there are so many options. Do you rent or do you buy? What style of home do you look for? What layout? These questions and more might be flooding through your head. South Pointe Apartments and Homes we have beautiful rentals that will make a wonderful home. Still not sure about a rental house? Well here’s some great ways to turn a rental house into a welcoming home.

One of the great things about a rental is it’s turn key. You can walk in with your boxes and boom you’re home and that’s when the real fun starts. One of the easiest ways to make your rental house feel like home is to customize it. Adding your personal style to the home will pull your space together and make it feel warm and inviting. Some quick things you can add right away to make a rental feel more like a home are: 

Drapes – rental window coverings are often pretty standard so add a little extra something with drapes and curtains in your style.

Rugs – area and throw rugs are great for adding a pop of color and an extra layer of coziness to your home.

Art and photos – Let your personal style shine through with art and photographs. Maybe you want a gallery wall or you have a big bold piece of art to feature. Let these pieces transform the space from just a house to your home. To prevent damage to your walls, use command strips and alternative hanging methods.

Plants – If you’re a plant person, live plants can really brighten up your living space. If plants aren’t your thing grab some fresh flowers or even a fake plant (we won’t judge).

Another great way to feel at home in your rental house is to get to know your neighborhood and surrounding areas. By making friends, finding local hangouts and enjoying all of the amenities South Pointe has to offer, you’ll feel at home in no time. Here are some of the great things our community and the surrounding area has to offer!
