Renter-Friendly Ideas to Upgrade Your Walls

Wall with Plants and Paintings in Chesterfield RentalAs a Chesterfield renter, you’ve seen more than your share of very plain blank walls. But certainly, if you view an empty wall as a blank canvas, surprisingly it is definitely full of potential. You can put into use that blank wall to bring your personality and style into an otherwise impersonal space, equally liven things up a bit. But still, you need to be very careful not to do various things that might alter or damage the wall – most landlords won’t look too kindly on that sort of thing. In addition, there is a lot you can safely actually do to decorate your rental home. If you’re willing to go beyond empty walls, here are just a few simple and creative ideas that will add beauty to your home – without permanently changing or damaging your walls.

Gallery Wall

One of the most sought-after approaches to personalize an empty wall is to develop 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. Have a theme color or art pieces in similar styles for a coordinated look. You can additionally tie a gallery wall together by using the same style or color of the frame on each piece. Or, go more broad-ranging with different colors and frames – it’s your wall, so make it reflect you! Just choose to use removable double-sided adhesives to hang each piece to prevent wall damage.

Natural Beauty

An efficient way to fill an empty wall with natural beauty is by adding some plant shelves. Plants lay on greenery and freshen the air inside any home. You can indeed use pots to set up a bright, custom look. But hanging shelves on the wall may not be a great idea. Conversely, opt for a tall open bookshelf or removable adhesives to display your plants.

Tapestry or Fabric Wall Hanging

A satisfying and unique look for an empty wall is hanging up a tapestry, rug, or fabric wall. If you’re crafty, you could create a few macramé arts or weave fabrics together into an attractive display. Or, get a pretty vintage piece of fabric, tapestry, or lightweight rug, and hang it on the wall. If you don’t appreciate the look of an ample piece of fabric, try arranging several smaller ones in the space. Just bear 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 opt to put up quite a few temporary wallpapers on your clean but plain wall. This can be the best means for renters to create an accent wall considering that you don’t need to paint or damage the wall to stick it. Temporary wallpaper comes in a wide range of styles, from traditional to contemporary. You can go bold with a few vibrant colors or keep it simple with neutrals. Whatever you decide on, you can safely remove the wallpaper when you move out, ensuring that you get your security deposit back.

Go 3-D

A plain, blank wall is a perfect place to display collected items, from hats to baskets. If you have a collection of beautiful woven baskets or sunhats, try hanging them on your wall to develop an excellent, unified display. These items are lightweight enough to use removable adhesives but certainly will create a lasting impression on guests! Your wall will pop with charm and personality anytime you use it to display your favorite 3-D things!
