If you’re a renter, you know that you have some limitations when it comes to decorating your space. You either have to constantly ask your landlord if what you’re doing is ‘okay’ or you just don’t even bother! Here are several different ways to decorate your space that are totally ‘okay’ and will have all your guests impressed with your decorating skills!
If you’re unable to paint your white walls, you will need to decorate them! A Beautiful Mess created this macrame garland that would add a nice pop of color to any room! She provides step by step instructions on how to replicate this design for your own space. Do you have built-in bookshelves that need a little sprucing up? Wanderers Palace will talk you through how to create your own fabric accent wall! All you will need is a few yards of fabric of your choice and a few finishing nails! If you don’t want to use nails, you can also use liquid starch to create a faux-wallpaper look.
Printed Wall Decals are a great choice for renters because they are re-positionable and removable without any damage to your walls! Our Deluxemodern Lantern Wall Decal Set will transform a so-so space into something spectacular! We have a soft spot when it comes to washi tape… If you haven’t bought some at your local craft store, please do! Bklyn Bride decorates the details of this white door to add a punch of color and outline the gorgeous molding! You can decorate all the doors in your home to add a touch of ‘you’ to your space.
Bedding is usually the first thing you and your guests notice when they walk into your bedroom. Bedding can be expensive, so why not DIY your very own bedding and make a statement! Brit + Co provides instructions on how to create this chic plus sign throw blanket for just $20! This project is budget friendly and adds a graphic touch to your bedroom.A mirror can really change the vibe in a room. HGTV states that adding a large mirror in any room will make the space feel bigger and brighter without having to knock down a wall for natural light! Mirrors come in all sizes and styles. Pick your mirrors out with your design aesthetic and style in mind.
If you can’t paint your walls, why not paint your furniture! If your walls are bright white and you’re itching for a change, painting your furniture is a great way to go. Refinery 29 states that choosing a bold color that you love will really liven up a room. The best thing about painting your own furniture is that you can always re-paint it once your taste evolves!
A gallery wall is always a great way to create a focal point in a room. Brit + Co creates a unique gallery wall with these color block dipped photo frames! Instead of spending tons of money on photo prints, print them at home and paint them! This technique spices up the artwork and will have your guests stopping and gazing at your handy work.Wallpaper doesn’t have to be permanent! Our Line Scales Removable Wallpaper Tile will add a modern twist to a drab space. The best thing about our removable wallpaper tiles is that they are SO easy to install! Simply peel, stick and you’re done! When you’re ready to move, peel off the wallpaper and your landlord will be none the wiser.
We hope that these decorating ideas have inspired all you renters out there! Now it’s time to get crafty and transform your space one room at a time. Happy Hump Day!
