When you’re renting an apartment there can be lots of rules about what you can and cannot change in the space. This can really stunt your decorating muscles, but when in need of a subtle change that will really stand out in a room, consider something as simple as changing the light switch plates. What’s great is that you take them with you when you move!
Maybe it seems a little childish, but there are some beautiful, grown-up switch plates available that will add personal style to your home. There are a handful of sites that offer unique plates for relatively cheap, but a favorite is sassyswitchplates.com. They offer a variety of sizes and materials from metal to nylon to plastic.
