If we have decided to allocate our own apartment for rent, in addition to finding future tenants, it will be necessary to prepare and arrange the space so that it is functional, cozy and adapted to the needs of residents. Contrary to appearances, it is not that simple, because the appearance and equipment of the apartment depends on who you want to rent it to. Today we will suggest how to arrange an apartment to meet the tastes and needs of future tenants.
Basic equipment of the apartment
First of all, we should consider what furniture and equipment we should equip the apartment with. If you plan to rent an apartment to a couple, you should think about a large double bed in the bedroom. You will also need a large wardrobe consisting of a compartment for hangers and a part with shelves. A living room or a living room should have a comfortable sofa and a coffee table, it is also good to equip this room with a TV, which will additionally increase the attractiveness of the apartment. It is also worth providing a dining area in the apartment – in the kitchen or living room – where we will place a table and chairs.
When it comes to the kitchen, apart from standard furniture, the obligatory equipment should be a fridge and a stove. Certainly, a dishwasher will be a great asset for future tenants. Depending on our financial capabilities, we can buy a toaster, a kettle and a coffee machine for the kitchen. In turn, the bathroom must not be complete without an automatic washing machine.
Colors and elements
Wall colors are always a matter of taste. However, it is worth choosing neutral, bright, not flashy, which can be complemented with other decorations, for example paintings or vegetation.
The shades that are worth considering include: white, blue, pastel pinks and greens. In the case of large spaces, we can use two types of shades, thanks to which we will be able to symbolically divide them into zones, for example, relaxation and dining zones.
To add coziness to the interior, it is worth buying:
- decorative pillows that we will place on a sofa or window sill,
- minimalist paintings in a colorful frame,
- paper floor lamps,
- colorful rugs,
- curtains on the window.

If our apartment for rent is not modern, almost straight from the developer, and the location itself is not very attractive, it is worth considering how we can increase its attractiveness in order to find tenants who will agree to pay the rental price we offer. Undoubtedly, the Internet in the rental price will be a big advantage. It is difficult to imagine that nowadays someone would not need to use a permanent connection in the apartment, and renting a flat without internet will require signing a contract with a supplier and incurring the activation costs.
Another element that can make our rental offer more attractive is a dedicated parking space, especially in the case of housing estates where the fight for parking begins around 3 p.m.
We may also consider adding a note that pets are welcome in the advertisement. Today, many people have their own pets, which can be problematic when it comes to renting a flat. If we allow a new tenant to move in with their cat or dog, we will definitely stand out from other landlords. Arranging an apartment for rent requires good thought and it is worth having a plan for each room. Sometimes it will be necessary to take out a quick loan to finance a small renovation or purchase a few accessories. First of all, let’s think about the needs of tenants, and not about our own preferences. They will probably live there for many months, if not years. So let’s do everything to make the apartment we offer aesthetic, cozy and, above all, functional.
