When you decorate an apartment, rental rules can limit your options. Here are five ways to make a rental feel like home. Use furniture to divide the space. Position your sofa to separate the living room from the eating area. Add temporary upgrades. Removable wall paper or wall decals can turn a wall into a statement, and they peel off easily when it’s time to move. Choose accessories that freshen up what looks dated. Use accents to perk up old colors or try fabulous rugs to cover scratched floors. Fabric panels can hide a multitude of problems. They make awkward doorways and nooks look stylish. Invest in double duty furnishings. A day bed works as a sofa by day and a bed by night. Think of everything you buy for your apartment as an investment in your next home.
