Tenant Decorating Hacks: Maximize Your White Wall Potential

A Stylish Room With Art on a White WallOne benefit of living in a Woodlands rental home with white walls is that white is always fashionable. Because it is easy to update and is extremely versatile, it is a very popular wall color. With white walls as a starting point, you can create interior designs ranging from minimalist to the most dramatic. The best part is that you don’t have to paint or put holes in the walls, so you don’t risk your security deposit. Here are a few interior design ideas to kickstart your creativity for your rooms with white walls.

Creative Contrasts. White provides beautiful contrasts, which you can use to your advantage when choosing curtains. A home that has white walls can be fitted with bolder curtains without overwhelming the space. You can go for curtains in a contrasting color for an eye-catching splash of color and still coordinate beautifully with the white walls around them.

Scandinavian Style. You can also go for the Scandinavian style, which is all about clean lines, minimal decor, and lots of white. If you like this look, your white-walled room is the perfect setting for a soothing and uncluttered look. You can also add functional rugs and furniture in soft, neutral tones to keep things serene.

Pop of Color. If you like white and other neutrals but do not want an otherwise all-white palette, adding accents in one vivid color can keep things from getting boring. Without making drastic changes, you can add personality to a room by using a single shade like emerald green, navy blue, red, or orange. Throw pillows, artwork, rugs, curtains, and other elements in your chosen shade can make those white walls pop!

Oversized Accessories. Truly dramatic interior elements go perfectly with white walls. Consider the visual appeal of a gorgeous oversized plant, vase, or piece of art on a clean, white wall. You can use just one or two large accessories and have yourself a stunning focal point in your room.

Black and White. There are few decorating schemes as timeless as a black-and-white approach. This classic is both sophisticated and simple at the same time. Achieve a classic, coordinated look with black furniture, a black-and-white patterned rug or curtains, and photos or artwork in black frames against your white walls.

Hanging Mural. A removable mural is a great alternative to an accent wall to offset your white walls. You can find adhesive, removable murals in many stores. Aside from coming in many different colors and patterns, they are also easy to apply and then remove. Unlike a single-color accent wall, a large mural can be a focal point and artistic complement to your white room.

Play with Patterns. White walls also look great with furniture, rugs, or curtains that have a lot of pattern and texture in them. You have more room to incorporate patterns in your furniture and accessories because white walls create a grounding backdrop for your things. If you are not used to using patterns in your decorating, your white walls can be a canvas for you to experiment with something more colorful and vivid, for a change.
