866-RENTALS     300 W Lakeside Dr., Vernon Hills, IL 60061

      It’s a lot easier to be satisfied with an outdated kitchen or poorly designed bathroom when you’re simply renting out a space. Homeowners are in it for the long haul however, and upgrades aren’t just part and parcel of the experience, they’re also usually expected if you want to make a good return when you go to sell. As a renter, you can be satisfied with what you’ve got knowing that it’s not forever. Perhaps we should say there is very little responsibility for maintenance. While you might be expected to maintain your rental as best you can, you aren’t on the hook for major repairs, like if an appliance breaks or you have a plumbing issue.

   You might be stuck with basic apartment finishes and materials, but that doesn't mean you can't have fabulous furniture. Fill the space with pieces you love to help make it your own. In every room, choose a statement furniture piece to become the focal point. With a stunning pink sofa or midcentury modern dining table, you'll quickly forget about any less-than-ideal features you can't change. Be creative, love where you live.

     Having a cute and comfortable appartment brings not only joy to life but great impressions from friends and family when they come over for dinner. Small apartment decorating ideas on a budget require a little creativity and ingenuity, especially if you want your deposit back. Proving that temporary can be clever, this art display of black-and-white prints is installed with neon pink washi tape. Mixing almost-all-black prints with lighter fare brings depth to the casual arrangement.
