More on how to make your rental property more of a home. So if you have any houses to let Liverpool, we’ve prepared this guide for landlords and tenants, to try make the most out of your surroundings.
Decide on a colour scheme, whether complimentary or harmonious and use lots of removable furnishings to enhance it. If you have an tacky headboard that you just can’t live with, see whether you can unscrew it and put it away. Alternatively, if it is padded, buy some trendy fabric to cover it. Tape it down at the back using small tabs of gaffer tape or pins.
Just as with the living room, if you can’t stand the soft furnishings, hang new curtains over the old ones and and cover the carpet with a large rug.
To liven up the walls, you can get one of your favourite photos printed on canvas from a shop like Photobox. Alternatively, turn your favourite photograph into a work of art by using photo-editing software like Photoshop to create a painted look or possibly turn it monochrome.
A large mirror will give the illusion of space in a small room. A statement bedside lamp will instantly give the room a designer look, but if this is to be the centrepiece of the room then keep other furnishings relatively plain.
If you’re doing any painting, protect the floor and furniture from drips.
If you’re sharing with friends, keep a list of what you have each bought, as it can be hard to remember at the end of the lease.
Alternatively, get someone else to deal with this on your behalf. If you have a flat in Liverpool, and you would like to take the headache out of property management, we’d recommend Bluerow Lettings.
