HOW TO TRANSFORM YOUR RENTAL HOUSE LIKE YOUR OWN



Owning a house perhaps is the largest ticket item or greatest achievement unlocked in one’s life but as house price increasing over the years, the affordability seems to be getting far out of reach for many youngsters. Thus, youngsters or young families these days chose to rent a house instead. Apart from being committed to pay off the monthly installment, there are some outgoings or expenses needed to be paid like legal fees, agent fees, stamp duties and etc. While legal fees and agent fees are still negotiable but not for stamp duties in Singapore, they are subject to change based on Singapore’s government regulations with the intention to cool the property prices in the market. With that being said, renting a HDB or private condominium does not necessarily means that you cannot feel like home. Here are some tips how you can make a rental look like your own with your individual flair and style.

Get creative with art

This would not make your faux home feels like you are actually home than some beautiful pieces of arts or prints. With that permission given, that does not mean you can go ahead and drill holes without care on the wall, be mindful that you will need to repair any damages caused to the walls.
