How Do I Make My Rental Look Updated?
Throughout the years, I’ve found that one of the best ways to make your rental look updated is by focusing on the little details like fixtures, lighting, accents. Now, I know you’re probably thinking, “Sis, I’m renting. I can’t change the fixtures and lighting.” That true, but you can change their perception. For example, in homes we typically go with warm lighting for a cozy feel, but if your rental is a bit outdated it probably has that standard tile that has yellowed over time and it really darkens the space. Try switching to daylight lightbulbs. They pull more of the blue tones to neutralize that dingy look and is of the easiest rental friendly upgrades to make.

What Colors Make A House Look Expensive?
In my experience, neutrals that lean a little to the warm side help make a home feel elevated. I talk about the paint colors we’ve used in each room of our house in this post. Now, if you’re renting, painting is pretty much out of the question. In that case, I would go with anchor pieces with a neutral tone so that they’re easy to move around when redecorating and add in your accent colors with details like throw pillows, rugs, florals, etc.
