June 22, 2017

Whether you are renting a house, loft, condo, or townhouse, you may be limited in decorating options. In many cases, you won't be able to paint or wallpaper. Plus, you might not be permitted to mount anything overly heavy on the walls. These design tips will help you achieve the look you are going for without making permanent physical changes.

  • Freestanding Fountain Made of Slate - You know you need a focal point, and as much as you love the idea of water features, you may be under the impression that they all mount on walls. This is not true. You can buy a freestanding fountain made of slate, and there is a good chance that everyone who sees it will be speechless. As its name implies, this type of fountain sits on the ground, so no mounting is needed.

  • Smart Tiles - Get the look of expensive backsplash with peel-and-stick tile sheets by Smart Tiles. They are heat- and humidity-resistant, and can even be placed over existing tile.

There are also lots of decals for kids available that are perfect for bedrooms, nurseries, and playrooms.
