When it comes to living in an apartment complex, you have to tread the fine line of renovations that you can make, and renovations that you cannot make — after all you are a renter and not an owner. That being said, here at the Lakes At West Chester Village, we want all of our tenants to be able to enjoy their living space — even if the modifications and updates that you make are a little less permanent.

In today’s blog, we are going to discuss a few of the ways that you can update one particular room of your apartment for rent in West Chester — the bathroom!

Hang Up Some Decor

While it is a little taboo to paint the walls in your apartment bathroom (unless you have approval, of course) you can always spice it up and add some wall-decorations. Wall decorations like posters, prints, and paintings can all be used to add color, as well as cultivate an ambiance that promotes relaxation.

Another great wall decoration that we have found to be underutilized, both inside and outside the bathroom, are wall hanging mirrors. Wall hanging mirrors are an excellent way to add a decorative flair, make the bathroom appear to be larger, and add light.

When you are hanging your artwork in your West Chester Apartment, consider using removable sticky hooks so that you can decorate your wall without leaving a mark!

Add Some Removable Wallpaper

When we tell people about removable wallpaper, seldom do they even know that it exists. While painting a wall can be considered a permanent alteration to your apartment for rent in West Chester, removable wallpaper is not. In fact, it is almost as easy to pull off as it is to hang — and it doesn’t strip any paint either.

With removable wallpaper, you can make your bathroom feel like an oasis in the jungle or a chic southern bed and breakfast — without having to spend much money either.

Don’t Forget The Floor

We don’t mean to brag, but our bathroom flooring is quite pretty. Our large stone tiles are easy to clean and durable, but that doesn’t mean that they are necessarily your cup of tea. Some people like the feel of tile under their toes. Other like matting, and others life fuzzy rugs — really fuzzy rugs.

If you are not a fan of tile or linoleum, area-mats or rugs can be an excellent alternative. Not only can they add some color and texture to the room, but they can also provide traction, ensuring that you do not slip and fall after enjoying a nice hot shower or bath.

Regardless Of What You Do, Make It Your Own

When you move into one of our apartments for rent in West Chester, Ohio we want you to make it your own — after all, it is your new home. That being said, there are a ton of different things that you can do to make your new apartment feel more like home.

When you are completing your decorating and you are unsure if there is a decoration that would be damaging to the apartment or restricted through your lease agreement, simply stop by our front office and ask. We would be happy to tell you what is, and isn’t, allowed. Contact us today for more information about our apartments for rent in West Chester.
