Tenant Decorating Hacks: Maximize Your White Wall Potential

A Stylish Room With Art on a White WallAn advantage of living in a Rolesville rental home with white walls is that white is always in fashion. The reason why it is a popular wall color is that it is not only easy to update but is also very versatile. Use your white walls as a starting point to create interior designs that can go from simple minimalist to full-on drama. You don’t even need to paint or put holes in the walls, so you don’t risk losing your security deposit. Here are some interior design ideas for rooms with white walls that you can start with.

Creative Contrasts. Since white contrasts beautifully with anything, you can go as wild as you want with your curtain choices. With a home that has white walls, you can go for bold-colored curtains without overwhelming the space. Curtains in contrasting colors will catch the eye and offer a splash of color that coordinates beautifully with the white walls around them.

Scandinavian Style. The Scandinavian style is all about clean lines, minimal decor, and lots of white. If this is your kind of aesthetic, your white-walled room is the perfect place for a soothing and uncluttered look. To keep things functional and serene, you can add rugs and furniture in soft, neutral tones.

Pop of Color. Even if you are a fan of white & neutrals, you could also add accents in one vivid color to break what could be an otherwise boring all-white palette. You can add life and personality to a room without making drastic changes by using a single shade such as 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. White walls are also the perfect backdrop for really dramatic interior elements. Just think about how stunning a gorgeous oversized plant, vase, or piece of art would look 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 is both sophisticated and simple at the same time. For a classic, coordinated look with your white walls, you can add some black furniture, a black-and-white patterned rug or curtains, ad even photos or artwork in black frames.

Hanging Mural. If you would like to have an accent wall to offset your white walls but cannot paint, a removable mural would be a good alternative. You can find adhesive, removable murals in many stores. They come in many colors and patterns, and are 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 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.
