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

Colorful Living Room in Lombard Rental HomeAs a Lombard renter, you have a lot of opportunities to add color to your home’s interiors. Adding color can brighten any room and make your rental home feel more personal. However, many landlords don’t like their renters painting walls or making other permanent changes. The good thing is that there are many non-permanent ways to add color to your Lombard rental home. Here are the top 10 tips for renters who want to decorate with color.

Go Bold with Bedding

Create a focal point in each bedroom with bright or eye-catching bedding. Go as color-wild as you can by bringing together your favorite shades to make your bed a carnival of color.

Curtains Add Flair

A simple, yet very effective, way of adding color to any room is by using curtains. Add drama and flair to any room of the house by installing brightly-colored draperies and shower curtains.

Beautiful Area Rugs

A bright and colorful area rug can be a splash of color in a room filled with neutral-colored furniture. The right rug can effectively change the ambiance of your living areas.

Pop Color with Furniture

Furniture can be your hero! Colorful options for furniture abound so that you no longer need to choose only neutrals or wood. A brightly painted table or set of kitchen chairs can add so much personality to your interiors.

Go Big with Bookshelves

White freestanding bookshelves are great for displaying your books or knickknacks on. Arrange the keepsakes and colorful book spines in interesting patterns or groups to make an interesting display.

Add a Gallery Wall

Add color and a sophisticated gallery feel to your wall with various photos or artwork. Whether you go for 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

You can also decorate with temporary wallpaper or large wall stickers to create an accent wall. 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

Accent items do so much to add color to your living space. Colorful throw pillows and interesting lamps can give your space more flair.

Go Floral

Flowers have a natural beauty. Try adding colorful potted flowers or flower arrangements around your home. Colors of nature add a fresh and pleasant feeling anywhere in the house.
