It is not your home, but it is your home. And as such, you must feel comfortable in it, decorating any room that requires it; even the most difficult spaces to personalize when renting, such as the bathroom or kitchen.
And, although we have limitations to decorate the bathroom of an apartment or a rental house, it is not impossible to give it a personal touch to adapt it to our tastes. And that is precisely what we are going to see next: 6 DIY and decorative ideas that you can make yourself to decorate and fully furnish your bathroom without disturbing the landlord. Let’s see them.
Add more storage space. All you need
If the bathroom in your rental apartment doesn’t have enough furniture or shelves to meet your organizational demands, you need to fix it. This small change will make you feel better in a functional bathroom adapted to you.
You can make customized shelves and furniture yourself and, once ready, install them without drilling holes if the landlord does not allow you to drill the tiles. In this way, you also have the advantage that when you leave the apartment you can take your furniture with you without any problem.
Today, you will find on the market a wide variety of effective products to create or install furniture, such as super strong adhesives that allow you to do without nails. This resistant product allows you to install shelves, furniture, towel racks, coat racks and anything else you need to create a space that provides you with all the storage capacity you need.
We have already talked about this topic previously on the blog, specifically in this article on how to hang things on the wall without using nails or a drill.
In addition, the good thing about this type of glue is that you can not only add furniture or other practical accessories, but its resistance makes them perfect to give a new look to your bathtub:

We all know how the bathrooms in most rental apartments tend to be: lifeless, characterless, characterless.
Let’s see more DIY and decorative ideas to personalize the bathroom.
Install vinyl flooring
This DIY job will take you less than a weekend if your bathroom is relatively small and you have the necessary materials and tools to be able to change the floor for a new one; you can give that space a renewed atmosphere.
The floor is one of the most important aspects at a decorative level. A change in it will make a huge difference in the entire bathroom. In addition, laying vinyl flooring is not only very simple, but also inexpensive. Of course, if you dare to place it, you must bear in mind that when you are going to leave the floor, you will need strength and a little patience to remove it. And is that this floor, if you use a good adhesive, sticks very well to the surface and then it is difficult to remove it.
In addition, I advise you to put it only if the bathroom floor has waterproof tiles, since if these are porous the glue will penetrate between the pores and you will not be able to remove it later. Therefore, make sure before that the floor is completely waterproof; It does not matter if it has shine or not, the important thing is that it has a closed pore.
That said, if you have a floor suitable for installing vinyl flooring, I encourage you to do so because you are creating a completely new bathroom. When you leave, you take it off, clean the old floor and voila, as if nothing had happened.
Put decorative vinyls
Decorative vinyl stickers are inexpensive, simple to install, and easy to remove, so you can decorate that old tile wall that you don’t like or give an old shower screen a new look. What’s more, with them you can decorate from the walls, to the bathroom screen, through furniture and even toilets.
You just have to make sure before that the surface on which you are going to stick the vinyl is in good condition. It does not matter that it is old, as long as it is in good condition, so that when you go to remove the vinyl when leaving the floor you do not damage said surface.
Change the little elements
Wouldn’t you like to have a bathroom with black taps? It is not a DIY job, but the change of these small accessories will be definitive to redecorate this space of your rental apartment.
When I refer to small bathroom accessories, I mean these elements:
- Sink faucet
- Bidet tap
- Shower head
- Towel rail
- Roll holder
In most cases all these accessories can be changed without any difficulty and it is these small details that will make your bathroom look completely new and adapted to you.
Of course, every time you change one of these pieces for another that you like more, make sure to store it in a box along with the other pieces and label it so that when you leave the floor, you can leave everything as it was.
Change the lighting
It is not always possible to bring this point to fruition because in most cases the lighting in the bathrooms is recessed, but if you have lamps or sconces in your bathroom, you can change them for ones that you like, just as you have done. with the taps, the towel rail and other elements.
As in the previous case, every time you remove something, store it well in a box and label it so that you can put it back without problems when you leave that house.
Following all these points, you will have been able to change many details and elements of the apartment without disturbing the landlord. Have a trick or DIY job you want to share? I read you in the comments.
