This is my first FSU apartment and I really want to decorate and paint to make it feel like a home. Will any communities let me paint the walls?

Many apartments will let you paint the walls as long as you return them to their original color before move-out. Always check your lease first!

There is nothing quite like moving into a new apartment and making it feel like home! But,painting and redecorating can come with a price tag if you don't check with your apartment management. Each apartment complex will have different policies on painting. Generally, complexes do not want you to paint the walls, how ever some may allow you to paint as long as you repaint the walls the original color. Otherwise, you could be risk not getting your deposit back. Check your lease before deciding to paint! Also, make sure you know what the original color was.
