You only have to see the need for them, figure out how to get them done and get your landlord's permission to make these changes. Let's get to them.

1. Light fixtures and bulbs

2. Windows

The major thing you can do with your window is to upgrade or change your curtains. You cannot change the entire window except your landlord wants to do it too. Curtains make the window as far as your apartment's interior is concerned. You can get curtains in various sizes, materials (textures) and colors depending on what you want. An excellent and more versatile alternative for curtains is to use window-tinting film. Window-tinting film is of two types – frosted and reflective. The frosted type of window-tinting film is more preferable because it will allow natural light to enter your apartment and also shut out any view into your apartment. Some window-tinting films have ultra-violet filters which help protect your furniture from the sunlight getting into your apartment for rent in Jacksonville, FL.
