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

Colorful Living Room in Yorktown Rental HomeAs a Yorktown renter, you could be wondering if there are ways to add more color to your home’s interiors. Colors help by brightening the feel of a room as well as by making your rental home feel more personal. However, many landlords don’t like their renters painting walls or making other permanent changes. The good news is that there are many ways to add color to your Yorktown rental home that you can take with you the next time you move. Let’s check out 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. Bring as much color as you can by putting together your favorite shades to make your bed a masterpiece of color.

Curtains Add Flair

You can also add color to a room with curtains. Bright-colored draperies and pretty shower curtains bring drama and flair to any room of the house.

Beautiful Area Rugs

A colorful area rug is an excellent accent to a room with furniture in a neutral color. The right rug can be your living area’s “centerpiece”.

Pop Color with Furniture

Go bold with your furniture! With a lot of colorful options available, you don’t always have to go for the traditional neutrals or wood. A brightly painted table or set of kitchen chairs can add so much personality to your interiors.

Go Big with Bookshelves

If you have many books or knickknacks, you can line a wall with white freestanding bookshelves and display them there. A creative arrangement of colorful book spines and keepsakes make a stunning display.

Add a Gallery Wall

Bring the gallery feel to your home by lining your walls with photos or artwork with splashes of color. Whether you choose one large colorful canvas or a collection of photo tiles, a gallery wall can make a bold statement in your home.

Stick on an Accent Wall

Get an instant accent wall when you decorate with temporary wallpaper or large wall stickers. There are many types of temporary wallpapers and vinyl stickers available that can help you personalize your walls without damaging them.

Brighten with Lamps and Pillows

Don’t underestimate the appeal of accent colors. Colorful lamps and throw pillows can easily add personality to any space.

Go Floral

For a touch of natural beauty, add potted flowers or flower arrangements around your home. Colors of nature add a fresh and pleasant feeling anywhere in the house.
