Renter-Friendly Ideas to Upgrade Your Walls

Wall with Plants and Paintings in Tucker RentalAs a Tucker renter, you’ve seen more than your share of bare white walls. Although, if you deem an empty wall as a blank canvas, all of a sudden, it is abounding in potential. You can totally use that plain bare wall to bring your personality and style into an otherwise impersonal space, indeed liven things up a bit. But on the other hand, you need to be meticulous not to do every little thing that might alter or damage the wall – most landlords won’t look too kindly on that sort of thing. Indeed, there is a lot you can safely bring about to decorate your rental home. If you’re willing to look beyond empty walls, here are various not-difficult, simple, and creative ideas that will add beauty to your home – without permanently changing or damaging your walls.

Gallery Wall

One of the most widely known ways to personalize an empty wall is to make a gallery wall. A gallery wall is more than a few framed photographs; it is a coordinated display of art or photographs arranged with intent and an eye for design. Opt for a theme color or art pieces in similar styles for a coordinated look. You can furthermore tie a gallery wall together by using the same style or color of the frame on each piece. Or, go more diverse with different colors and frames – it’s your wall, so make it reflect you! Select removable double-sided adhesives to hang each piece to prevent wall damage.

Natural Beauty

The best approach to fill an empty wall with natural beauty is by adding some plant shelves. Plants actually provide greenery and freshen the air inside any home. You can as well use pots to establish a colorful, custom look. But hanging shelves on the wall may not be a nice idea. Instead, pick a tall open bookshelf or removable adhesives to display your plants.

Tapestry or Fabric Wall Hanging

A nice and unique look for an empty wall is hanging up a tapestry, rug, or fabric wall. If you’re crafty, you could set up a few macramé arts or weave fabrics together into a gorgeous display. Or, buy a pretty vintage piece of fabric, tapestry, or lightweight rug, and hang it on the wall. If you don’t enjoy the look of a copious piece of fabric, try arranging several smaller ones in the space. Just keep in mind to use removable hangers and adhesives.

Temporary Wallpaper

If just hanging things on the wall isn’t quite doing the trick, you could try to put up some temporary wallpaper on your rather empty wall. This can be an appropriate way for renters to create an accent wall given that you don’t need to paint or damage the wall to put it in place. Temporary wallpaper comes in a wide range of styles, from traditional to contemporary. You can go bold with certain gleaming colors or keep it sweet with neutrals. Whatever you use, you can safely remove the wallpaper when you move out, ensuring that you get your security deposit back.

Go 3-D

A bare wall is the right place to display collected items, from hats to baskets. If you have a desire for beautiful woven baskets or sunhats, try hanging them on your wall to make a nice, unified display. These items are lightweight enough to use removable adhesives and, moreover, will have a lasting impression on guests! Your wall will pop with attractiveness as well as fun and personality if you use it to display your favorite 3-D things!
