PODS Local Shares 5 Tips on How to Make the Most of Your Rental

VENTURA, Calif. - June 9, 2023 - PRLog -- When you move into a new rental property, it may feel like you're missing something that would make it feel like your own. Current homeowner vs. renter statistics reflects a decline in homeownership. According to RubyHome Luxury Real Estate, renters make up 34% of U.S. households, with that number climbing.

PODS® Local is here to share tips on how to make your rental space feel more like home.

Utilize the entryway: Entryways are a first impression to your guests. They set the tone for your space and can help make it feel like your own. If the space allows, you can include a small table by the entryway with essentials, such as your keys and wallet, along with personal touches like a framed photo or a unique vase.

New lighting: Swapping out an unflattering overhead light with something more updated can help you see your apartment in a whole new light – literally! Be sure to check with your landlord first. If changing a preexisting light is not an option in your apartment, you can brighten up a dark space with a new lamp that fits your style.

Using the (limited) space wisely: You may feel as though you don't have enough storage space for both your daily items and your seasonal ones. PODS Local has convenient storage options so that you don't take up valuable space in your rental, but you also don't have to give up items that you love but aren't currently using. PODS Local can take a portable storage container to you and drive it to a safe and reliable offsite facility whenever you're done loading your items.

Replace old blinds with curtains: Many rental homes and apartments have outdated blinds. Putting in your own curtains can help the space feel like your own when you handpick the color and pattern you love. To remove the blinds, you will likely only need a screwdriver and you can keep them tucked away until you're ready to move out.

Tap into creative temporary decorating ideas and products: The online community is full of creative ways to make a rental feel like a home. From removable wallpaper and peel & stick back splashes, to temporary flooring tiles, there are endless ways to create a space you are proud to call home.

"PODS is the go-to moving service for renters, but we are also a perfect solution for the extra items you need to store away too. We want to help renters ensure that they don't have to sacrifice off-season items that are important to them, but aren't being used at the moment," said Steve Yapp, owner of PODS Local Moving & Storage.
