How to add a homely touch, without risking your deposit

With spring just around the corner, you may be thinking about redecorating your rental property.

Here’s how to decorate your home without making permanent changes that could put your deposit at risk.
 
You can never have too many houseplants
 
Houseplants provide a calming and relaxing feel to a home. But how can you use houseplants in a rented home? Try incorporating a ficus tree or rubber tree – they can give height to bare corners and can be placed behind a sofa. Or, you can even add a cactus to keep your home looking sharp.
 
Transform walls
 
Adding a colour of your choice to your rented home is a great way to make it feel a little more homely. Removable wallpaper is a perfect temporary wall covering that can elevate your space. There are many stylish designs available to buy, with a ‘peel and stick’ action that allows the paper to be removed and repositioned as often as you wish. 
 
Use multifunctional furniture
 
Multifunctional furniture can save money, space, and can also help with converting a room into different functions. Invest in smart, aesthetically pleasing furniture to adapt to your needs. If you’re short on space, consider furniture that can be stacked, folded, or stored conveniently.
 
Make the most of outdoor spaces
 
As we move into spring, many of us will be spending more time outside. Whether you have a balcony, a small terrace, or a back garden, make the most of your outdoor space with a few simple touches. Outdoor rugs are a great way to make your space more comfortable, colourful, and inviting. Invest in foldable chairs or outdoor floor cushions for extra seating.

One in three properties receive an offer one hour after viewing

The housing market once again exceeds expectations after a poor reception from the chancellor’s mini-budget and regular talk of a possible slowdown, as current research suggests that in 2022, almost a third (31%) of properties are now receiving offers within an hour, compared to a mere 7% in 2018.
