If you’ve read any reports about millennials’ housing habits over the past few years, you’ve probably seen one common generalization: if they’re not staying at their parents’ homes, millennials are mostly staying in “rent” mode, putting off owning a property for longer than any previous generation has. And the thing about renting is that it’s supposed to be temporary. Eventually, you move out, and when that happens, the landlord will likely expect everything to be as it was on your first day. Of course, since millennials have a particular lifestyle preference, it’s natural for them to want to put in some decorative touches during their stay.
Maybe you’re not a millennial, but you don’t have to be a member of Generation Y to know that the struggle is real. Reinventing your rental is a unique challenge of creativity. You have to make your space speak for you without making any permanent changes. With that said, read this renters’ guide to redecorating your space and you may get some much-needed inspiration.
