How to Personalize Your Apartment without going against Your Contract

For small families who are just starting their life together, living in an apartment is more realistic and budget friendly. If there are any issues like leaky roofs,  you simply have to inform your landlord or landlady and it will get fixed!  However, apartments can be a little hard to personalize. Tenants usually move in their new apartments and see white painted walls and a contract with strict stipulations of “no to repainting or no to putting holes on the walls.” So how can you put some personal touches without spending on permanent fixtures and not going against your contract?

For one, carefully chosen furniture can be your focal point for personalizing your tiny apartment. These items can be moved and taken with you when you move out so there is no issue with furniture. Add throw pillows with fancy cases to jazz up your living room area. Go for multi-purpose shelf or book stand which may also double as a desk. You may also use them as dividers to separate your living and dining area.  If your place is just a studio-type, get a canopy or a nice curtain that you can surround your bed with.  Wall decals are also a great alternative to painting and decorating walls. They are cheap and you can easily express your personality through an endless array of decorations or quotations suited for every room in your apartment.
