Ways to Add Color in Your Home When You’re Renting

Colorful Living Room in East Downtown Rental HomeAs an East Downtown renter, you may perhaps be thinking about how to add more color to your home’s interiors. There are various appropriate rationales in doing this, from brightening the feel of a room to making your rental feel more personal. On the flip side, countless landlords don’t like their renters painting walls or making other permanent changes. The wonderful news is that there are countless measures to add color to your East Downtown rental home that you can take with you the next time you move. Let’s see the top 10 tips for renters decorating with color.

Go Bold with Bedding

Create a focal point in each bedroom with bright or eye-catching bedding. You can incorporate as much color as you consider, combining your favorite shades to make your bed a real show-stopping pop of color.

Curtains Add Flair

One more excellent measure to add color to a room is with curtains. Bright draperies and fine shower curtains can both add drama and flair to every room of the house.

Beautiful Area Rugs

If your furniture is a neutral color, strive to place it on top of a bright, colorful area rug. The correct rug can set the tone for your living areas.

Pop Color with Furniture

Enjoy and have fun with your furniture! With too many colorful options out there, there is no cause to stick to neutrals or wood. Put a colorfully painted side table or kitchen chairs to give personality to your interiors.

Go Big with Bookshelves

If you have a considerable amount of books or knickknacks, keep in mind lining a wall with white freestanding bookshelves to help you display your collection. Colorful book spines and keepsakes can thus be creatively arranged to make a gorgeous display.

Add a Gallery Wall

To add color to your walls, contemplate creating a gallery feel with photos or artwork. Whether you utilize one large colorful canvas or a collection of photo tiles, a gallery wall can bring about a bold statement in your home.

Stick on an Accent Wall

If you want to go even bigger with your decorating scheme, try to add temporary wallpaper or large wall stickers to create an accent wall. There are many types of temporary wallpapers and vinyl stickers available that can be of use to you in personalizing your walls without damaging them.

Brighten with Lamps and Pillows

As to adding color, think seriously about bright accent items. Adding distinct and colorful lamps and throw pillows can add personality and flair to any space.

Go Floral

For a touch of natural beauty, try adding colorful potted flowers or flower arrangements near and around your home. Natural colors can add fresh, bright appeal almost anywhere in your house.
