 Change Out Old Hardware
Measure the existing hardware holes, and find new ones that match your style and taste better.
Such a simply update!
[Remember to keep the existing ones, so you can reinstall them before you move out.]

Change Out Light Fixtures
 This is another easy to way to help bring your rental into the current decade!
[Remember to keep you existing ones in a safe place,so you can replace them before you move out.]

You may also remember a few years back, we updated our light-fixture with just some new globes, light bulbs and added a ceiling medallion. 

Remove Cabinet Doors
If you are into the 'open shelves' concept, remove a few of your cabinet doors in the kitchen to help achieve a similar look.

 Removal Wallpaper
You can find all different prints and patterns on the web. 
But you may have heard all the craze of Opalhouse for Target.
Well-- they also have removal wallpaper in the line!
And it's so GOOD!!

Chalkboard Wall
If you have been longing for a chalkboard wall, but aren't able to paint the walls of your rental-
you are now in luck!
You can find  Chalkboard Contact Adhesive on Amazon- Two rolls for $14 dollars!

Change Out Faucets
Another, super easy update- is to replace your current faucets with prettier ones!

Cover Ugly Flooring
You can find these Vinyl Floor Tile Stickers on Etsy. 

Update Your Outdoor Patio
