Tenant Decorating Hacks: Maximize Your White Wall Potential

https://www.rpmbatonrouge.com/areas-we-serve/baton-rouge-property-managementOne benefit of living in a Baton Rouge rental home with white walls is that white is always fashionable. Because it is easy to update and is extremely versatile, it is a very popular wall color. With white walls as a starting point, you can create interior designs ranging from minimalist to the most dramatic. You don’t even need to paint or put holes in the walls, so you don’t risk losing your security deposit. Here are some interior design ideas for rooms with white walls that you can start with.

Creative Contrasts. Make a beautiful contrasting design with white walls and curtains. A home that has white walls can be fitted with bolder curtains without overwhelming the space. Curtains in contrasting colors will catch the eye and offer a splash of color that coordinates beautifully with the white walls around them.

Scandinavian Style. The 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. Even if you are a fan of white & neutrals, you could also add accents in one vivid color to break what could be an otherwise boring all-white palette. 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. With even just one or two large accessories, you can create an eye-catching focal point in your home.

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. 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. A removable mural is a great alternative to an accent wall to offset your white walls. 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. Unlike a single-color accent wall, a large mural can be a focal point and artistic complement to your white room.

Play with Patterns. White walls also look great with furniture, rugs, or curtains that have a lot of pattern and texture in them. You have more room to incorporate patterns in your furniture and accessories because white walls create a grounding backdrop for your things. If you are not used to using patterns in your decorating, your white walls can be a canvas for you to experiment with something more colorful and vivid, for a change.
