Interior Design Ideas for Rental Apartments

It doesn’t take much extra effort for a landlord to make a vacant unit look like a place tenants want to call home. My years of experience dealing with real estate investors revealed some insider tips to add value to your real estate.

Fresh paint is the cheapest way to update a unit that looks worn or dated. Competition for a potential tenant’s interest begins in the areas the tenant sees when he arrives at the unit, so first impressions count a lot. A freshly painted house never fails to lift your spirits!

In small spaces, the conventional wisdom is to use light colors throughout the house to make spaces feel more airy and open. But it does not have to be like that. Give the room a touch by painting all the walls in a light shade and then finish one in a bold color. This gives your room a focal point and in effect makes the rest of the room disappear and feel more spacious.

When trying to sell or lease your apartment, use textures, layers, and lighting to enhance the rooms. When budget allows, some basic furniture, art, and accessories are a great way to bring color trends into your home and create that wow factor. The place should also be adequately lit in all areas to make it more attractive.

You can’t go wrong renovating an outdated kitchen or bathroom. For the kitchen, focus on the basics: refinishing existing cabinets; install a new wall oven, range, and sink; refinishing or overlaying old tiles. Rejuvenating an old bathroom costs much less than updating a kitchen. Improvement work here may include the installation of a new bath or shower screen, WC and vanity unit.
