Here are our 11 Genius Tips for Decorating a nursery in a rental house
1.USE REMOVABLE WALLPAPER
Hey, you can't paint the walls but you need to decorate the nursery in the rental house?
Well then, let's do something even better. Use removable wallpaper to bring a fresh look to your baby's nursery. You'll bring so much depth and character to the nursery.
2.BRING IN TEXTURE
Elevate your baby's nursery by incorporating texture into the design. Textures such as wood and textiles will make the nursery look interesting and cozy. It's an easy way to decorate a nursery in a rental house and make it have personality.
3.GO WITH BOLD COLORS
Even if you can't paint the walls or use wallpaper in the rental house, you can still bring color to the baby's nursery. Add colorful furniture and accessories to give the nursery some personality. And, you get to take it all when you move to the next house.
Mix patterns to bring more color and interest to the nursery. Throws and pillows are an easy way to layer patterns. When layering, incorporate varying scales and a similar color palette to create a cohesive look in the nursery.
5.USE UNEXPECTED FINDS
Even if you can't do the big changes you would like to the baby's room, you can still give the nursery personality. Incorporate unexpected finds like this vintage dresser.
If your nursery in the rental house is small you can open up the space without having to tear down walls. Create the illusion of space by adding a mirror to the nursery design.
7. HANG ART
Bring in color and spunk to the nursery by hanging art. Even if you are not allowed to put nails on the walls, you can still put up a gallery wall using command strips, adhesive backed tapes and hooks.
8.LOWER YOUR LIGHTING
If your ceiling lighting has not been updated in a while, then add alternate lighting sources. Besides, floor and table lamps are a great way to light up the room without casting shadows.
9.LET THE LIGHT IN
You do need roller shades or blackout curtains to filter the sun when baby's napping. When the baby is awake, roll them up and let the light come in. The natural light will make the nursery space look much brighter and cheerful.
10. ACHIEVE BALANCE
Create a nursery that is balanced and harmonious. Here, even though the nursery is small, it is pleasing to the eye since both sides of the room have the same visual weight. The heavy crib on one side pairs well with placement of the nursery chair and dresser on the opposite side.
11.SPLURGE ON A RUG
When you are decorating any room in a rental house, one of the best ways to add color and personality is to use a rug.
Use a beautiful vintage rug to infuse the nursery in your rental house with personality and to anchor the space. Since rugs can get a bit expensive, you can also layer a smaller vintage rug over a neutral rug to get a similar result, but on a budget.
