ideas for rental kitchens
If you have a rental,
it is usually the kitchen that is the hardest to personalize
and make it look like "yours". Here are some tips
to give it your own look while keeping your landlord happy.
Change the knobs
If they are screw on knobs and handles, simply unscrew
and add your own carefully chosen ones. Be sure the handles
are the right size, as they come in different widths. When
it is time to move out, simply remove yours and put the original
knobs and handles back.
Use a bold accent
Forget the neutrals and go for a bright red, yellow or blue
instead. Then add touches in that bright color, such as dish
cloths, placemats, utensil holders, hot pads, even your garbage
can. These bright colors will draw the eye and give your kitchen
a polished look.
Add framed artwork
to your fridge
If you are stuck with the no holes rule, frame a piece of
artwork, add heavy duty magnets to the back, and put on your
fridge for instant decor without using picture hooks.
These are several
ideas for adding charm to your kitchen. Have more ideas? Post
