Colorful Living Room in Evanston Rental HomeAs an Evanston 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 prefer if their renters do not paint walls or make other permanent changes. What’s good is that there are a lot of ways you can add color to your Evanston rental home that you can bring along with you on your next move. Check out 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. Use as much color as you want by putting together many of your favorite shades to make your bed stand out with color.

Curtains Add Flair

You can also add color to a room with curtains. Colorful draperies and unique shower curtains add drama and flair to any room of the house.

Beautiful Area Rugs

Furniture in neutral colors can beautifully frame a colorful area rug. The right rug subtly changes the overall look and feel of your living areas.

Pop Color with Furniture

Go crazy with furniture! 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

You can get white freestanding bookshelves and display your collection of books or knickknacks on them. 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

Go big by decorating an area 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

Don’t underestimate the appeal of accent colors. Get throw pillows and lamps in colorful designs to add personality to any space.

Go Floral

For a touch of natural beauty, place potted flowers or flower arrangements around your home. Nature’s colors refresh and brighten any area of the house.
