Rental friendly updates for your Kitchen

rental kitchen

I’ve said it before and imma say it again, can’t nobody afford to buy a house right now and if you can how bloody great for you, I’m not bitter at all *side eyes*.

Just because you are renting it doesn’t mean you can’t have nice things and there are plenty of ways to add your personality to your space without making permanent changes.

Before I begin it is very important to have a conversation with your landlord about what is permissible, most are fine with reversible changes but it is always a good idea to double check.

Change your knobs

One very easy way to update you rental kitchen is to switch out your knobs and drawer pulls. It goes without saying but make sure you keep the original knobs somewhere safe so you can put them back when you leave. You would be surprised how just changing drawer pulls can instantly upgrade your cabinets.

You just peel them off and stick, it’s as simple as that. When you are done remove them, wipe down the tiles/wall, et voila! It’s like they were never there.
