Tenant Decorating Hacks: Maximize Your White Wall Potential

A Stylish Room With Art on a White WallAn advantage of living in a Bothell rental home with white walls is that white is always in 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. White makes beautiful contrasts. You can use that to your advantage when picking out curtains. When your home has white walls, it can accommodate bolder curtains without overwhelming the space. Contrasting colors are pleasing to the eye, and curtains that provide a bright splash of color will 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 soothing, uncluttered look, your white-walled room is the perfect space. To keep things functional and serene, you can add rugs and furniture in soft, neutral tones.

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. 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. Imagine how visually enthralling a gorgeous oversized plant, vase, or piece of art be 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. 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 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. In addition to the wide variety of colors and patterns to choose from, they are also easy to apply and remove. Compared to a single-color accent wall, a large mural acts as a focal point and an artistic complement to your plain white room.

Play with Patterns. Furniture, rugs, or curtains that have lots of patterns and texture in them will 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 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!
