It is always an exciting time when you arrive at your new rental, ready to unpack and spend the next year of your life in this space. However, trying to make your rental feel like home isn’t easy. That is especially true with the kitchen, as it tends to be the heart of most homes. Fortunately, there are many easy ways to spruce up your rental kitchen—and you can add a Caribbean splash to each option!
Before you start purchasing décor for your kitchen, it’s wise to choose a kitchen concept that you can start with. There are many to choose from—perhaps you want a luxurious, dynamic, or comfortable model. You might also have a few trendy kitchen design ideas already in mind. A beginning concept is helpful as it gives you a foundation to build with and guides you in creating the kitchen of your dreams.
There is always plenty of wall space that the default kitchen design leaves blank and bland, but it doesn’t have to stay that way. Consider adding some color with stick-on tiles or a peel-and-stick backsplash. Peel-and-sticks are a fantastic option for renters as it is safe to apply to your walls and won’t cause any damage when taking them off. If you don’t want to add a backsplash to your entire kitchen but still want to incorporate color, you can just apply stick-on tiles to areas like your stove or sink area.
When people are trying to figure out the best way to spruce up their rental kitchen, they only focus on the midsection of the room. However, that leaves out prime space on your floor that can brighten up your kitchen. Consider adding a kitchen mat to the floor—this is a fantastic opportunity to search for a Caribbean-themed rug that brings gorgeous patterns and vibrant colors into the home.
Being a plant parent is all the rage lately for a good reason. Plants can reduce feelings of anxiety while being quite pleasant to look at. Adding some plants to your kitchen can literally liven up your space, and the best part is these green additions can be multi-functional. For example, you can add herbal plants to your kitchen that you can also utilize in your cooking.
