Tenant Decorating Hacks: Maximize Your White Wall Potential

A Stylish Room With Art on a White WallA benefit of living in a Lusby rental home that has white walls is that this color never goes out of fashion. This popular wall color is very easy to update and is extremely 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 interior design ideas you can get inspiration from for your rooms with white walls.

Creative Contrasts. White provides beautiful contrasts, which you can use to your advantage when choosing curtains. When your home has white walls, bright and bold curtains won’t overwhelm 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. The trendy Scandinavian style is all about clean lines, minimal decor, and lots of white. Your white-walled room is perfect if you like a look that is soothing and uncluttered. Keep things functional and serene by adding rugs and furniture in soft, neutral tones.

Pop of Color. If you like white and neutrals but are worried that an all-white palette can become boring, why not add accents in a 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 make the perfect background for truly dramatic interior elements. A gorgeous oversized plant, vase, or piece of art would look stunning against a clean, white wall. With large accessories like these, you can add a scene-stealing focal point in any space.

Black and White. There are few decorating schemes as timeless as a black-and-white approach. It is a classic because it can be 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. You can also have an accent wall to offset your white walls without painting by using a removable mural instead. You can find adhesive, removable murals in many stores. In addition to coming in a variety of colors and patterns, they are easy to apply and remove. A large mural will be a better focal point and artistic complement to a white room than a single-color accent wall.

Play with Patterns. Heavily-patterned and textured furniture, rugs, or curtains look great against white walls. 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 don’t use patterns often in your decorating, your white walls are an invitation to try something more colorful and vivid!
