No matter where you live, your home is your haven. And being your haven, you most likely would want to create a space that matches your personality and style so that you can feel like the space belongs to you. However, when it comes to renting, some people may find themselves considerably restrained in regards to renovations. Nobody would like to make permanent changes to space only for them to move away and consequently be penalised by losing some of their security deposit. The good news is that being a renter does not mean being incapable of injecting your flair into your haven. Considering kitchen renovations tend to be the most popular remodelling projects homeowner undertake in, here are some of the changes you can make without risking your security deposit:
Start with the cabinetry
Your kitchen cabinets are an excellent place to start when contemplating renter renovations, as they are so many versatile ways of playing around with their appearance. In addition to this, since the cabinets are used daily, they most likely will be the first aspect of your kitchen to look decrepit so a facelift could significantly boost the visual appeal of the room.
Firstly, take off the knobs on the cabinets and drawers and replace them with accessories that match your style. Be sure to put the old knobs in a safe place so you can reattach them before moving out. Another way you could switch up upper cabinets is by taking out the doors and giving the interiors a fresh coat of paint. This open design of cabinetry will make your kitchen look spacious and the cabinets a centrepiece in the room.
Let nature inspire you
The impact that indoor plants can have on a space is gravely underrated. Mainly if you are a renter and do not have much leeway on the changes that you can make to your home. To create a tranquil and organic ambiance in your kitchen, you should consider investing in potted plants. A great way to make these plants stand out is by painting your walls a brilliant white, which would create a stark appearance.
Your choice of potted plants does not have to be merely aesthetic too. There is a vast range of herbs that you could plant right in your kitchen, which would not only add a touch of greenery to the room but will be extremely handy when cooking.
