Make your rented house a home
When you move into a new house and fill it with your furniture, sometimes, it just doesn't feel like home. The problem is that many rental contracts state that the house or flat should have minimal changes throughout the tenancy. The consensus is that tenants should leave the property as they found it. This is a problem for today's renters, and millions of people are looking for ways to make their rented houses feel like home in a way that is both stylish and affordable.
How do you make a rented house feel more 'you'?
The good news is that there are a few ways to make a rented property feel more 'you'. Have you ever moved into a house that is generally nice, but has one room that has a really terrible paint job that ruins the feel of the whole house? Or maybe the kitchen surfaces are not the colour you would like them to be? We've got a solution.
Self-adhesive vinyl is a renters dream.
It is affordable, customisable, and easy to apply to walls, windows, or even furniture. Our self-adhesive vinyl starts at just £2.29 per metre, meaning that you can redecorate your house without breaking the bank. The good news is that self-adhesive vinyl is easy to apply. It's as simple as removing the peel away backing and sticking the vinyl on to a surface, and voila, your house feels more like home.
Upcycle old furniture.
Self-adhesive vinyl is also perfect for upcycling old furniture. For example, you can buy an old bedside table second hand for £5, but it may not be in the best condition. The table might not look good enough to be on display in your home if it has numerous cosmetic issues such as scratches. Here is where self-adhesive vinyl comes in! Stick a layer of vinyl on the top of the bedside table, and it will look good as new. Goodbye ugly scratches or water stains.
Decorate your windows.
Self-adhesive vinyl is not just for walls and furniture; it can also be easily applied to windows. If you want to give your home more privacy, use our frosted self-adhesive vinyl, and you won't have to worry about who is looking through your windows. If you are looking for a more eccentric solution, we also offer vinyl that will make your windows look like they are stained glass! It is a great way to add colour to your home in a quick and affordable way that does not cause any damage.
Personalise your space with wall stickers.
Wall stickers are ideal for renters - they are easy to install, leave no marks when taken down, and most of all, they look great. We stock a variety of 3D wall stickers to suit every interior style; they are an easy way to personalise your rented home. Choose from room-appropriate slogans such as ‘let’s have lunch’ or ‘welcome home’ to create an inviting atmosphere. If you have children, they will love our wall stickers too! Decorate their bedrooms with repositionable 3D foam hearts, flowers, or butterflies to add colour to plain walls. There is a 3D wall sticker to suit every taste.
