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

Colorful Living Room in North Charleston Rental HomeAs a North Charleston renter, you may be thinking of ideas to add more color to your home’s interiors. There are many good reasons why you want to do so, from brightening a room to making your rental home feel more personal. But many landlords don’t like their renters painting walls or making other permanent changes. What’s good is that there are a lot of ways you can add color to your North Charleston rental home that you can bring along with you on your next move. Let’s discuss 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

Use curtains to add a splash of color to a room. Draperies and shower curtains can add drama and flair to the different rooms of the house.

Beautiful Area Rugs

A colorful area rug is a good contrast to furniture in neutral colors. The right rug subtly changes the overall look and feel of your living areas.

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. Even one brightly painted table brings a load of 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. Colorful book spines and keepsakes plus a bit of creativity can give you an impressive display.

Add a Gallery Wall

You can fill your walls with color by arranging photos and artwork similar to a gallery. 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

Easily create an accent wall by decorating 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

Unique accent items bring a burst of color to your home. Colorful lamps and throw pillows can easily add personality to any space.

Go Floral

For a touch of natural beauty, place potted flowers or flower arrangements around your home. The colors of nature give any room an instant freshness and brightness.
