Decorating our homes is a great way to express creativity and feel good in your space, but when it comes to renting we can’t always decorate the way we want. Depending on your space (or landlord) you are probably stuck with the colour of your walls and flooring. This can really affect the way you feel in your space.
With this limitation, lighting your space proves to be even more difficult. Your rental is usually equipped with department store lighting fixtures that were probably bought in bulk, and aren’t necessarily the most attractive lighting choice.
Luckily, we have a few solutions for this. TUCK carries a number of lights can be utilized to their full potential in a rental space. These lights can be used with plug in cord kits to make a stylish combination that is rental-friendly. The cord kits can be plugged directly into your walls, opening the doors to other placement opportunities in your space.
Plog-it Cord Kits ($41)
Our Plog-It Cord kits are available in many colours and patterns, making them a fun and colourful lighting solution, no installation required. Simply plug them in, and voila!
We have a different bulbs that you can use in these cord kits, which give these cord kits an industrial feeling. But that’s just for starters! These bulbs can be used in any light, whether it be a table lamp, floor lamp, or pendant lamp.
Vita Copenhagen produces many pendant lights that are available in different sizes and are all compatible with tripod stands and cord kits ($27), both of which come in both black and white. The tripods are available in a 103 cm floor stand ($95) and a 36 cm table stand ($69), which is super convenient for rental spaces.
We also have the Taylor Pendant light ($92) from Elite Living in stock! The distinctive wire cage encloses your choice of bulb, making this simple pendant a striking way to light up your space. The beauty of the Taylor Pendant is intensified when hung in multiples.
