A Landlords Guide to First Time Renters

As the real estate market continues to evolve, landlords are increasingly recognising the importance of creating visually appealing rental properties to attract first-time renters. In a competitive market, it's crucial to stand out and make a lasting impression. At Base Furnishings, we understand the significance of a well-designed living space, and we're here to guide you in transforming your properties into desirable homes for young professionals, students, zillennials and new renters. Here are some of our top tips on how to remould an empty space into a dream first home:

Pops of Colour


One of the most effective ways to make a rental property more appealing is by incorporating pops of colour into the interior design. Bold, vibrant hues can breathe life into any space, creating an atmosphere that feels dynamic and welcoming. We offer a wide range of furniture and decor options in various colours, allowing landlords to inject personality into their properties. From statement accent chairs like the Matty Armchair to colourful throws and pillows, these additions can instantly elevate the overall aesthetic and make the rental property more memorable for potential tenants.

Neutral Tones


While pops of colour are essential for creating visual interest, striking a balance with neutral tones is equally important. Neutral colours serve as a versatile backdrop that allows renters to personalise their living spaces with ease. We offer a curated selection of furniture in timeless neutral shades, providing a sophisticated foundation for any interior design scheme. From chic beige sofas like our Rita Sofa to elegant grey headboards like the Hibiscus Headboard, these pieces ensure that the rental property exudes a sense of style while remaining adaptable to diverse tenant tastes. We recommend choosing core furniture pieces in your soft neutral colour palette and adding colour through accent pieces and decor.

Interesting Textures/Materials


In the pursuit of creating a captivating living environment, you should not overlook the significance of textures and materials in interior design. Incorporating interesting textures, such as a plush rug or a textured fabric, can add depth and warmth to the space. Consider furniture with unique finishes, like a rattan coffee table or furniture with woven weaves like our Elder Sideboard, to infuse the rental property with character. These tactile elements not only stimulate the senses but also contribute to a more engaging and visually appealing living space, making it even more enticing for first-time renters seeking a home that goes beyond the ordinary.

Quirky Shaped Furniture


To set your rental property apart from the rest, consider incorporating quirky-shapedfurniture that adds an element of surprise and playfulness. We like to embrace innovative design concepts, offering an array of furniture with unconventional shapes and forms. From uniquely structured coffee tables to whimsical bookshelves, these pieces can become conversation starters and make the living space feel more distinctive. First-time renters are often drawn to properties that express creativity and individuality, which is something that zillennials value highly in current times.

Cool Lighting


Lighting plays a pivotal role in shaping the ambience of a space. At Base Furnishings, we have a selection of cool and contemporary lighting solutions to enhance your rental property. From sleek table lights like the ‘Toby Table Lamp’ to stylish floor lamps like the ‘Revival Floor Lamp’, our offerings are designed to provide both functionality and aesthetic appeal. Thoughtfully placed lighting fixtures can highlight key areas, create a cosy atmosphere, and contribute to the overall design scheme. By paying attention to lighting details, you can significantly enhance the visual appeal of your rental properties.
