An interior designer has revealed three tenant-friendly design tricks that will make your home more expensive
Tyka Pryde shared her advice in a TikTok video online.
She said: “Professional designer here – how to make your space look taller and more expensive if you’re renting and on a budget.”
Tyka said: “Now I’m not a fan of DIY projects, I feel like everyone makes them so easy on the internet and they never are, but these are pretty foolproof. “
Tyka said she loves peel and stick wall panels.
She said: “Peel and stick the wall panels, they actually go up quite easily and you can find them on Amazon, you can find them on Wayfair.”
She continued: “They’re just a quick and easy way to transform a boring apartment wall into a space that has a bit more character and makes it more chic, which we’re interested in.”
Next, Tyka said plug-in wall sconces.
She said: “Plug-in wall sconces are my favorite thing to add to any rental space. There are so many different styles. There are super contemporary ones, more classic ones.
She continued, “I use them all the time. These look so luxurious to me, like something you would find in a really high end hotel.
Finally, Tyka said peel and stick mirrors are a great way to make your home look bigger.
Tyka said, “The latter is more like a hack because it gives the illusion that your space is way bigger than it is. It makes your apartment double the size.”
She continued: “Peel and stick mirror wall tiles. You can mirror an entire wall in your apartment for less than $100. [£84].”
The interior designer added: “You can get the cheap spray paint to paint them gold, put a command strip on top and then you can create this whole mirrored wall moment that reflects more light. “
She concluded, “It makes your space look bigger and it can feel really upscale if you do it right.”
