Tenant Decorating Hacks: Maximize Your White Wall Potential

A Stylish Room With Art on a White WallLiving in an Orlando rental home with white walls means easier decorating with a color that never goes out of fashion. The reason why it is a popular wall color is that it is not only easy to update but is also very versatile. When you have white walls as a starting point, you have a limitless range of interior design ideas at your disposal. The best thing about that is you don’t have to paint the walls or put holes in them so you can be sure your security deposit is safe. 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. Curtains in a contrasting color attract the eye, offering a splash of color that coordinates beautifully with the surrounding white walls.

Scandinavian Style. Clean lines, minimal decor, and lots of white are what the trendy Scandinavian style is all about. Your white-walled room is perfect if you like a look that is soothing and uncluttered. Rugs and furniture in soft, neutral tones keep things functional and serene.

Pop of Color. If you like white and neutrals but think that an all-white palette is a bit boring, consider adding accents in one vivid color. By using emerald green, navy blue, red, or orange, you can transform a room’s personality without making drastic changes simply by using a single shade. Throw pillows, artwork, rugs, curtains, and other elements in your chosen shade can make those white walls pop!

Oversized Accessories. White walls are also the perfect backdrop for really dramatic interior elements. Consider the visual appeal of a gorgeous oversized plant, vase, or piece of art on a clean, white wall. Even just one or two large accessories can be the show-stealing focal point of any space.

Black and White. There are few decorating schemes as timeless as a black-and-white approach. This classic combination is both simple and sophisticated at the same time. Your white walls will beautifully set off black furniture, a black-and-white patterned rug or curtains, or photos and artwork in black frames.

Hanging Mural. If you want an accent wall to offset your white walls but can’t paint, you might want to consider a removable mural instead. 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. If your furniture, rugs, or curtains have a lot of pattern and texture, having white walls will pull them together. There are many more things you can do with patterns in your furniture and accessories as white walls can serve as a grounding backdrop for your things. If you haven’t used patterns much in your decorating, your white walls are an invitation to be more adventurous and try something a bit more colorful and vivid!
