Living in a rental unit can be frustrating. You want to make it your home, but sometimes you run up against limitations regarding what you can and can’t change. If you want to turn your rental into your perfect home, check out these updates you can do that probably won’t need your landlord’s permission.
If you feel like you need more rooms or separate spaces, you can create your own walls with strategically-placed furniture. This is especially useful in large bedrooms, where you can use dressers or desks to delineate your sleeping space from your lounging space or your work space.
