Tenant Decorating Hacks: Maximize Your White Wall Potential

A Stylish Room With Art on a White WallAn advantage of living in a Tampa rental home with white walls is that white is always in fashion. It is easy to update & extremely versatile, that’s why it remains a popular wall color. Use your white walls as a starting point to create interior designs that can go from simple minimalist to full-on drama. The best part is that there’s no need to paint or put holes in walls, so your security deposit won’t be at risk. Here are interior design ideas you can get inspiration from for your 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. You can also go for the Scandinavian style, which 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. You can also add functional rugs and furniture in soft, neutral tones to keep things serene.

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. Without making drastic changes, you can add personality to a room by using a single shade like 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. Many dramatic interior elements seem to be made for white walls. Imagine how visually enthralling a gorgeous oversized plant, vase, or piece of art be on 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. This classic is both sophisticated and simple at the same time. Even just simple black furniture, a black-and-white patterned rug or curtains, and photos or artwork in black frames will make a classy, coordinated look in a room with white walls.

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. Aside from coming in many different colors and patterns, they are also easy to apply and then 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. 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. Your white walls are an invitation to try more colorful and vivid patterns in your decorating this time around!
