rental DIY help!

I live with my boyfriend and we rent an apartment and want to redecorate a little bit. I know for sure using paint will change the rooms but does anyone have other suggestions on how to make the space more "ours" other than just pictures or art work and paint?

  • They no doubt make a lot of difference. You may also making changes to the color combinations for more better outcomes. Getting the right furniture for the house is also one of the option and they would give a complete renovation of the house.
