Tenant Decorating Hacks: Maximize Your White Wall Potential

A Stylish Room With Art on a White WallA benefit of living in an Alpharetta 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. You can create a wide range of interior designs ranging from minimalist to one that’s full of drama using the white wall as a starting point. 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. You can start with these interior design ideas for rooms with white walls.

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. 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. The trendy Scandinavian style 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. To keep things functional and serene, you can add 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? 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. Truly dramatic interior elements go perfectly with white walls. Just think about how stunning a gorgeous oversized plant, vase, or piece of art would look 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. 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. 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. They come in many colors and patterns, and are easy to apply and then remove. Compared to a single-color accent wall, a large mural serves as a focal point as well as an artistic complement to a plain white room.

Play with Patterns. Heavily-patterned and textured furniture, rugs, or curtains look great against white walls. You can do more with patterns in your furniture and accessories because the white walls create a grounding backdrop. If you don’t use patterns often in your decorating, your white walls are an invitation to try something more colorful and vivid!
