Winter Decor Ideas that are Renter (and budget) Friendly!

The winter months can be difficult to get through, but luckily with the holidays around the corner, there are lots of deals and items you can add to your gift list. It’s the perfect time to spruce up your space so winter doesn’t seem so bad. Here is our list of some of the best winter decor ideas that are cheap and renter-friendly:

Include a pop of color!

One of the worst parts of winter is how grey it gets. Plus, in a rental, you can’t exactly paint anything. Adding color is a great way to improve your mood and remind you of the warmer, sunnier months.

Luckily, there are temporary solutions you can use to add some color to your space such as temporary wallpaper! If you want to do something even simpler, it’s as easy as adding a colorful bouquet of flowers or adding decorative pillows and blankets (you can never have enough blankets).

Decorate your home with DIY projects:

DIY decorations are cheap and so easy to do! Plus, it’s an activity to keep you busy from inside your home so you won’t have to step out and brave the cold! Check out Pinterest for wonderful DIY winter decor ideas.

Cozy up!

 There’s nothing better than cozying up with as many blankets and pillows as possible during the cold months. They make great gifts and you can never have too many. Plus, they’re a much cheaper option than running the heater making your utilities much higher than needed!

While you’re at it, you’ll want to get a few cozy rugs too, because getting out of bed onto a cold hardwood floor is never fun.

Add Mirrors!

Mirror mirror on the wall, can you take me back to fall? One of the biggest downsides of winter is how early it gets dark. It makes the days seem so much shorter and it’s harder to get things done.

However, while you’re braving the longer nights you can also take advantage of the day and keep your house bright and cheery by adding mirror across from your windows to bring in as much light as possible.

Candles.

A favorite winter decor idea that also makes your rental cozy is candles, and adding winter scents are a great way to do that! Be sure to check with your to see if there are any policies against candles in the unit. A wax warmer works just as well if you aren’t allowed to burn candles. Plus, there are some great stores that offer deals on their candles, especially around the holidays.

Bonus: Fireplace décor!

If you just so happen to have a fireplace in your rental, updating the décor surrounding it can be a great way to keep the winter vibes going in your home. It’s a simple and easy way to decorate plus, you’ll be spending a lot of time there, so you might as well like how it looks!
