5 Trends for Rental Home Decor in 2021

Trendy Living Room with Natural Wood Materials and GreeneryGive your Charleston rental home a fresh and trendy look for 2021! In 2021, we’ve seen several great trends that will surely 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 very popular right now because of their nature-inspired textures. They have also gained this popularity because of their eco-friendly footprint. Likewise, painted wood is on the way out since it’s no longer popular to hide a material’s natural texture. What’s gaining popularity are the natural shades of wood, bamboo, and other sustainable materials. Then, for accent pieces, go for live plants. They bring a touch of the outdoors into the room. And not only will you be adding a vibrant green to your interiors, but these plants will also freshen your rental home’s air.

2. Flexible Furnishings

These days, people are spending more time and doing more things at home than ever before. This made flexible furnishings a must-have since they make home interiors more efficient and versatile. Decorative room partitions have been trending recently, thanks to their functionality and design. Renters are creating divisions within their rental home’s interiors. They do it to increase productivity and hide storage. It’s because of this versatility that similar furniture– murphy beds, expandable tables and desks, and foldable furniture– are all trending now in 2021. A lot of renters are finding it more and more efficient to have furnishings that change and adapt to their daily activities. This would allow them to use the space of their Charleston rental home fully.

3. Vibrant Colors

Using jewel tones and vibrant colors in rental home décor is another big trend for 2021. Colors such as vivid blues and greens, rich colors inspired by nature, are in trend nowadays and it may help your renters feel grounded and peaceful. Also on the rise are bright yellows, pinks, and teals. These colors are ideal for people who want to bring positivity and creative inspiration into their homes. The best way to use these vibrant colors is as accents, such as throw pillows, area rugs, or even appliances. It’s also possible to create a sensation of vitality and energy in a rental home by having bright, oversized wall art.

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. Consider adding a colorful outdoor rug or modern table seating. You don’t even have to limit yourself to those choices. Install a comfy hammock or even a swing chair! 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

Nostalgia has created an increase in the popularity of the vintage or retro theme in rental home decor over the last year. Utilizing repurposed or vintage items combined with modern pieces can aid you in creating a cohesive aesthetic without having to go through the trouble of reproducing a certain 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. If you don’t want to overhaul your life completely but still keep your rental home décor on-trend, try layering in some vintage vibes.
