There are some definite challenges to lighting, furnishing and decorating when you lease your space. You can't switch out cabinets, fixtures, hardware, wall color or flooring. You are naturally confined to the structure as is. Many people lease their homes be it a job situation, transitional phase in life or just not being ready for home ownership. However, it doesn't mean you can't make your own, give it your footprint and make it feel less like rented space. The showroom experts at BES Lighting took me on a journey to transform my basic leased space into an inviting home reflecting my personal style.
