MO­BIL­ITY is key when mak­ing a rented house feel like “home”.

Ac­cord­ing to the lat­est fig­ures, 38 per cent of Far North­ern res­i­dents are cur­rently rent­ing and vacancy rates are con­tin­u­ing to tighten in Cairns.

Whether you are an owne­roc­cu­pier or pay­ing a weekly amount to a land­lord, there is an in­stinc­tive de­sire to cre­ate an in­di­vid­ual space to call “home”.

Real es­tate com­pany Har­courts has com­piled a list of ways to add per­sonal touches to trans­form a prop­erty into the per­fect abode. LIGHT­ING Chang­ing floor and ta­ble lamps is the eas­i­est way to add a bright flour­ish of your own per­son­al­ity. CUP­BOARD HAN­DLES Up­dat­ing kitchen or bath­room cup­board han­dles can im­me­di­ately per­son­alise or mod­ernise a room. Store the orig­i­nal han­dles in a safe place to be re­turned to po­si­tion when you leave. frames that do not lift paint when re­moved, or you can place art on top of cup­boards, lean­ing against the wall. The op­tions are end­less. the ul­ti­mate mo­bile dec­o­ra­tion. VER­SA­TILE FUR­NI­TURE Choose fur­ni­ture that is more likely to fit in any space or with a num­ber of dif­fer­ent colour schemes. For ex­am­ple, plain white or black fur­ni­ture is prefer­able, as are lounge suites that can an­gle ei­ther left or right.

PER­SON­ALISE: Add a few eclec­tic pieces with colour and char­ac­ter and your rented home will re­ally feel like “home” – and you can take them when you move.
