Life in Monaco means sunny skies over the view of the Mediterranean Sea. Warm summers average at around 25 degrees Celsius, and mild winters hardly ever dip below zero degrees, even at night. With great weather, many tourist and artistic hotspots, and best facilities for children, Monaco is listed as one of the most densely populated countries in the world. In fact, residential transactional volumes in the country account for more than €2 billion. The majority of these properties, however, are built to be rented out rather than be bought.
While searching for properties for rent in Monaco, you are likely to come across an apartment or studio that you will fall in love with but feel that the space just need a bit more personalisation. But we also know that choosing to decorate a rental space feels like walking a fine line. We want to make the place feel more like home, but we also don’t want to risk losing the deposit or breaking the lease.
This article will help you find the best foolproof options to personalise a rented place without breaking any rules:
Consider Removable Wallpaper
Removable wallpaper is quickly becoming popular with many renters as they can decorate a place to make it feel like their own with relatively little effort and without damaging the walls. This wallpaper does not require any special glue or removers, making it an ideal must-have for renters. The possibilities with this wallpaper are also endless. Depending on the design chosen, renters can opt to cover the whole room or highlight a particular area with a big statement design.
More than providing a much-needed pop of visual interest, adding greenery to a place provides a lot of other benefits. Houseplants can help with a lot of things, from purifying the air to reducing stress and noise. Using vintage glass jars with green leaves as table centrepieces can add to the rustic atmosphere of a house. Succulents and cacti can transform an area into a tropical paradise. Several indoor plants also work well with many modern aesthetics designs such as Japandi. If you are wary of the commitment of ongoing care that goes along with adding greenery to a place, many indoor plants like snake plants and peace lilies can work for you as they require minimal sunlight and water to survive.
Display Art Without Damaging a Wall
Most landlords do not allow holes being drilled into their walls. But the good news is that you can still display art around your place without using a single nail. For one, you can use removable, self-adhesive hooks to hang your favourite paintings. Second, hanging your art is not the only way to make sure that it plays a prominent role in your quest for personalisation. When your lease prohibits hanging anything on the wall, you can simply prop up your artwork against the wall on a shelf, on a tabletop, or even on the floor. A lot of minimalist looks include large artwork leaning against the wall as a style statement. All it takes is a little imagination.
Even in Monaco, converting a rental space to one where you can feel like home can be tricky. But there are many simple solutions that require little to no money to be able to finally achieve your goals for your rental home.
