5 Trends for Rental Home Decor in 2021

Trendy Living Room with Natural Wood Materials and GreeneryGive your Columbia rental home a fresh and trendy look for 2021! In 2021, we’ve seen quite a few trends that will help keep your rental home current. There’s a significant push for natural materials, flexible furniture options, and vibrant colors. These are the new trends that can set the direction for your 2021 rental home decor.

1. Natural Materials

One of the current rental home decor trends for 2021 is the use of natural and eco-friendly materials. These materials should be used as much as possible. Wood, glass, and stone are really “in” right now for their eco-friendly footprint; plus, they’ve got really nice nature-inspired textures. For the same reason, painted wood is on the way out– it’s no longer popular to cover the natural texture. What’s on the rise are the natural shades of wood, bamboo, and other sustainable materials. Next, add live plants as accent pieces. They bring a hint of the outdoors in. Another thing plants do, is both freshen the air and add a vibrant color of green to your rental home’s interiors.

2. Flexible Furnishings

These days, people are spending more and more time being productive at home. The need to be more efficient and versatile at home has led to the popularity of flexible furnishings. They make your home interior improve your productivity. Decorative room partitions, because of functionality and design, are currently trending. Renters use these divisions to hide storage and increase productivity. This is something a lot of rental home’s interiors need. For similar reasons, murphy beds, expandable tables and desks, and foldable furniture are all trending in 2021. These days, versatility is very important. Many renters now understand how beneficial it is to have furnishings that adjust to the changes in their daily activities. The efficiency boost of being able to maximize the space of their Columbia rental home is really huge.

3. Vibrant Colors

Using jewel tones and vibrant colors in rental home décor is another big trend for 2021. Colors like vivid blues and greens, rich colors influenced by nature are currently fashionable and just might help renters feel grounded and peaceful. Bright yellows, pinks, and teals are also on the rise for those who may want to cultivate positivity and creative inspiration in their home. The best way to use these vibrant colors is as accents, such as throw pillows, area rugs, or even appliances. Stunningly oversized wall art is a trend that is quickly becoming popular as well. This can add an impression of energy and vitality to a rental home.

4. Moving Outdoors

By creating beautiful, comfortable outdoor spaces, you’ll be able to incorporate another 2021 décor trend which is to bring nature indoors. Should your rental have a patio or balcony, you may be able to extend your living space by adding an intimate, cozy seating or gathering place. Why not add a swing chair or a comfy hammock? You can even put a colorful rug or modern table seating. Additionally, you can make your balcony or patio a cozy place to unwind by adding some ambient lighting and a potted plant or two.

5. Go Vintage

Only just recently has nostalgia seen a sudden increase in desirability among renters. Many people are using vintage or retro themes in their rental home décor. When using repurposed or vintage items, it’s much easier to create a cohesive aesthetic by combining vintage items with modern pieces. This way you don’t have to replicate a particular era or time period fully. When choosing furnishing and décor items, don’t just pick things that fit your current décor. Choose items that are important and special to you. Keep your rental home décor trendy without having to completely overhaul your life by layering in some vintage vibes.
