Renting can be a great opportunity to live in different properties in Pismo Beach before you know what you want to buy. Unfortunately, rentals are not your own, therefore you cannot remodel to the full extent you may otherwise desire. There are a few ways that you can remodel, no matter what.
Determine your budget for remodeling. The more money you have, the easier it will be to remodel the level you desire.
Have a serious talk with your landlord to find out what you are able to do. The landlord may not care what you want to do as long it’s going to look aesthetically pleasing and you are going to front the costs. Review your leasing agreement as well as the local laws to determine what should be covered by the landlord. For example, if the floors are in bad repair, it may be the responsibility of the landlord to replace them.
Start with a few basic changes that can improve appearance that you can always set back to the way they were when you move out. This includes lighting, changing out the drawer pulls, and more. You may be able to apply fresh coat of paint to the walls, and always repaint before you move out.
You may be able to use stick on tiles for the floors as well as to create a fun backsplash. You may also be able to use a wall-mounted rack in order to get them out of the cabinets to give you more space. Consider a few different shelving systems as well.
