How to Coordinate A Color Scheme for Your Cypress Rental Property

Modern Living Room Decorated with Red CouchesPicking a color scheme for your Cypress rental property’s interior can be a challenging process. In most instances though, you will be limited to a certain section of your interior. Most landlords and property owners do not allow a renter to paint the interior or exterior of the home. Nonetheless, that shouldn’t stop you from pursuing other means of personalizing your space! With the existing interior colors, choosing a color scheme may prove to be a more challenging task.

Choosing a color scheme for your rental property? First, walk through the house, taking note of which spaces are visible from each room. Using a floor plan, write down those spaces that you intend to use. This is significant because choosing a color scheme for an entire house is not just about styling individual rooms. On the contrary, each room should coordinate with others to develop a sense of continuity.

Option 1: Choose Your Base Color

After going through your notes, you can begin laying out your color scheme in one of two ways. The first strategy begins with choosing a base color for the biggest room or area in the house. Consider the paint and flooring colors, and think about what could work in that given space. Go with neutral paint colors because they coordinate so well with many color schemes. But keep in mind that warm neutrals like beige or cream are very different from cool neutrals like gray. Each one has different complementary colors, and trying to mix warm and cool colors may lead to unwanted results.

Option 2: Choose a Focus Color First

Then, pick a bold focus color and then coordinate everything else around it. If you’re a big fan of colors, it’s a good idea to map out your color schemes before implementing anything. Especially if your central living area is an open space, try to choose furniture and accessories in colors that work well together. One strategy is to choose a single color and then use different shades (which are darker) or tints (which are lighter) of the same hue to add visual appeal and lots of personality without overwhelming the senses.

These two provide you with great starting points. But, there are other ways to choose a color scheme for your house. If you have a real affinity for a specific environment (the beach, for example), you can use the colors of that place as a guide for using colors in your home. Nevertheless, it’s not a bad idea to decorate your rooms using different themes.

While you will want to keep connecting spaces relatively neutral, you can give every room in the house its mood by using different coordinating colors. If you use a multicolored floor rug in the hallway, it would work well even if your bedrooms have different color combinations. This gives you a sense of continuity without having to color all of your rooms the same way.

Finally, if your color scheme leaves you with a bit of uncertainty, try to test your palette first. Find any items that fit the colors of your color scheme. Arrange them in your space, so that you can try to visualize those colors on a larger scale. The light will be different in every room, and what works well in one space might end up looking less than appealing in another. One more tip: carry pictures or swatches when shopping. This helps you get a sense of how new items might fit into your existing color scheme.
