Renting a home is a common practice, especially in big cities such as San Francisco. Whether you are a student, intern, or worker in the city, sometimes it is the best choice to rent a place while you are here. Luckily, Urbanests offers the most affordable San Francisco rentals that are located in the best parts of the city. That only that, we also want to make sure you have the best experience possible while you are with us. Here are some of our favorite room decorating tips to make your temporary room rental in San Francisco feel more like home!
Adding or Changing the Lighting
Don’t have enough lighting or want to change the mood of your home with different colored lights? Add your own personal lamps, plug-ins, string lights, or anything that suits your taste to spice up the lighting of your living space! These lights can easily be purchased at places such as Home Depot, Target, or basically any department store you can imagine. Go and brighten up your room with your favorite lights!
If you really want to make your room feel more personal, try adding a removable wallpaper to it! Many people dream of painting their rooms with the favorite decorations or patterns, but can’t do so because they are renting a place. That’s where removable wallpapers come in handy, and with just a little extra bit of effort, you can have your walls covered with beautiful patterns that are catered to your own liking! Just make sure to clean up after yourself when it’s move-out time!
Hang things up with removable hooks
Sometimes renting a place might make you feel like you are not getting enough space to put all your belongings. If that’s the case, maybe it’s time to start thinking vertical and hanging things up with hangers or floating shelves that can be placed right on your walls! Not only is it awesome for organization and creating new space in your room, you can also show off your decoration skills by placing the hooks or shelves on places that you think will look the best. You can also hang up your favorite pictures or memories to tell a story and make your room feel more comfortable.
Decorate your floors with rugs
Not that into the color, condition, or style of your rental flooring? Invest in a colorful decorative rug to add some spice to your floor! Here’s a secret, just because you already have carpet doesn’t mean you can’t add more to it! In fact, we’ve seen many great results with layering beautiful mats on top of carpeted floors, so here’s your chance to show off your home-decorating skills!
Add some life to your home
Bring nature home with you and add some greens to your San Francisco room! You don’t always need to have a backyard to satisfy your gardening needs when you can bring some planters and window boxes home with you. Place these indoor plants next to the window for some natural lighting and watch your room come to life!
We hope these ideas helped you make your space feel more like home.
