The final part of our spruce up your rented accommodation series, so if you have homes to let in Liverpool, take a look.
The Kitchen and Bathroom
If you rent a property in Liverpool, and are hoping for your landlord to give you a whole new bathroom suite, you maybe out of luck. Although, you can make a big difference to a grotty bathroom by brightening up discoloured grouting using a whitener and the landlord is hardly likely to complain about such an improvement.
Buy a new bath mat, towels and replace the shower curtain if it looks old. Establish a colour scheme with these items and then buy candles and soaps in matching or complementary colours to decorate the bathroom shelves. Keep ugly toiletry bottles in the cabinet.
In the kitchen buy a table runner or cloth and place mats to dress the dining table. A vase of flowers will give the room a fresh and cared-for look. Get some good fake blooms if you can’t afford to keep buying them fresh.
Rental properties are often equipped with mismatched crockery, so invest in your own dinner service for a more unified feel as these can be bought very cheaply at home stores and large supermarkets. The same applies to glasses and cutlery, as after all, these will come in useful when you come to buy your own home.
If the property contains furniture you do not need, the landlord may be prepared to store it for the duration of your lease or use it in another property.
