One of the biggest misconceptions about rental kitchens is that they can't be changed. While it's true you can't have a major renovation without losing your security deposit, you don't have to stay unhappy with your outdated cabinets either.There are a lot of temporary rental solutions you can use that won't anger your landlord and won't cost you when it's time to move out. In fact, many of these rental solutions are actually incredibly simple and can help make your kitchen look better than it did when you first moved in.

Update the hardware

Updating your rental kitchen's hardware is one of the simplest, but also one of the most important, things you can do to upgrade your kitchen whether you own it or rent it. Outdated cabinet pulls and drawer pulls can make your kitchen seem older and dysfunctional.By replacing your knobs and pulls, you can make your rental kitchen look more modern. You can even change up the style of the kitchen by installing vintage cabinet pulls.The best part about upgrading your kitchen's hardware is that it can always be removed again when you move out and you can bring it with you to your next apartment or home.

Install cabinet lighting

You need to be able to see what you're doing when you're in the kitchen and one of the best ways you can upgrade your space is with cabinet lighting. You can stick cabinet lights to the bottom of your upper cabinets so you can see what you're doing and where you're grabbing.And just like your upgraded hardware, you can remove the cabinet lighting when it's time for you to leave and install it in your new kitchen without worrying about wiring or cords.

Use peel-and-stick wallpaper

Removable wallpaper has been a popular trend lately, and for good reason. For renters, peel-and-stick wallpaper is an easy way to create a backsplash in your kitchen without having to ask your landlord to install it.The wallpaper can be easily removed without taking off any paint or damaging the wall, so you get all the benefits of a backsplash without any of the mess.
