3 Ways to Enhance Your Rental Home in Time for Summer, Ashland, Kentucky

Although you don’t have as much freedom to do as you like with a rental home versus owning a property outright, there are still a few steps you can take to spruce the residence up in time for nicer weather. The key is to ensure the upgrades are temporary, says Tudor Oaks Properties of Ashland, KY. Here, they offer three simple steps you can take to enhance a rented house.

3 Easy Ways to Spruce Up a Rental Home

1. Paint the Walls

You’ll need to get the okay from the landlord before you do this, but many are fine with tenants painting the walls as long as they can be returned to their original color when the renter moves out. A fresh coat of paint is an easy and inexpensive way to give the property an updated feel, and you’ll have your choice of bright, summery colors. Opt for neutral tones and light, cheerful colors like yellows and greens.

2. Hire a Carpet Cleaner

Cleaning the one in your rental property will give the home a fresh feel and also contribute to healthier indoor air. And, even if the landlord won’t hire one for you, this service is usually relatively inexpensive and can be performed quickly by a professional.

3. Add Soft Lighting

Soft lights create a cozy feel, perfect for relaxing in the evenings with the warm air blowing inside. There are two ways to achieve this ambiance in a rental property: You can either temporarily swap out the fixtures the landlord put in place for tenants, or you can add standing lamps and use those instead.
