How to revamp your apartment without losing your security deposit

There are many benefits of renting an apartment, such as lower monthly payments, no property taxes and no maintenance costs. On the flip side of the coin, you have to get permission to make any structural changes.  

Making unauthorised changes could lead to the loss of a security deposit, and possibly even a fine. Luckily, there are a few ways to revamp your apartment without losing your security deposit, such as the following: 

Ask about the rules 

Most of the limitations will be mentioned in your lease agreement, so you can review the contract first. Before you let your creativity flow, you need to speak to your landlord and ask about the rules, just to be sure.  

Take advantage of lighting 

Lighting has the power to change the mood of a room and create a cosy space. While you may not be able to drill holes into the wall, you can upgrade the lighting features by investing in lamps, candles and battery-charged lighting structures.  

Use alternative adhesives 

Any changes that you make to the wall or floor needs to be removable. There are different options of adhesives that can change the entire aesthetic of the home. For example, establish an accent wall with removable wallpaper, choosing from a range of bright and bold patterns or delicate textures. Another option is to add a fake tile backsplash to your kitchen. 

Invest in furniture 

Is it time to update your furniture? Changing the furniture in the home is an effective way to revamp your home without changing the structure. If you buy large pieces of furniture then it’s worth considering multi-functional furniture pieces with storage space. If your budget is limited, then you can change the scene with new rugs, pillows and even plants. 

Use command hooks to hang  

With command hooks, you can hang paintings, photo frames and mirrors without drilling through the wall. Command hooks are easy to find and can revamp the entire space, just make sure to check how much weight they can hold. 

Before you begin redecorating, it’s best to declutter and make space for your new ideas. If you need a centrally-located and affordable storage solution, Storage World has you covered. Whether you need a short-term or long-term solution, our conveniently located storage facilities provide the ideal solution.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
