Last updated on April 23rd, 2023

Rented homes can put a spanner in the works when wall décor is concerned. This is especially painful when you see plenty of interesting wall décor ideas on popular home décor blogs. Well, you need not let these restrictions put a damper on your mood. These low-commitment wall décor ideas will take your wall décor up a notch without damaging the wall too much.

So, how do you wing it? Let’s explore some radical ideas for you to try in your rented space.

Go the Decal Way

Decals are not only for teenagers. There are many interesting takes on this simplistic décor element that can spruce up your home décor. Your decals need not be single-motif affairs; you can also use replication of the same or a variety of motifs to give a wallpapered look to your home. Another interesting way to tackle this tricky issue is by making decal borders on skirting or cornices for vintage appeal.

Dress up Your Walls with Artwork

There is more than one way to dress up your wall; and while brick or stone walls may not be feasible in your rented space, wall art works just as well, when handled right. You can try the symmetrical approach with a set of black and white frames on a dark background, or go for random placement of your kid’s artwork. And hey, if your landlord is not comfortable with you hammering nails in their walls, a collection of free-standing frames can add charm to your décor too.

Wicker Baskets for Rustic Appeal

Woven cane or sisal plates and baskets are a gorgeous addition to your home décor. Try to use a medley of baskets in different sizes to add dimension to your wall décor. Your other options are a mix of framed prints and baskets to amp up the look. To carry forward your rustic flavor, try dry flowers or rushes in vases to balance the act. Cane planters and storage bins are another interesting idea to compliment this look.

Do it with Plants

With the interest in plants increasing, you can have your cake and eat it too, by introducing this green element into your wall décor. Whether your plants are on shelves, in hanging baskets, or on floor shelves, your wall will get all the attention it needs from these gorgeous natural elements.

Add an Aztec Flavor

Want an Aztec or Hungarian theme for your home? Well, you will be surprised how easy it is to achieve this look with the wall plates you have collected on your travels. The trick is to pick up the colors from your plates and find matching cushions and rugs to complete this gorgeous look. So easy, and you don’t have to spend a bomb on the décor!

Polka Dot Walls

Polka dot stickers are an easy-peasy way to decorate your wall. What’s more, you can place them where you wish, no questions asked. Prefer a cluster of dots? Go for it! If symmetry seems tricky, haphazard placement is just as good. The best part? You can easily remove them when you want to change your look.

Indulge Your Whimsy

There are no rules when it comes to home décor. You can indulge yourself by showcasing your shells, hats, or even paper fans to add an interesting element to your décor. And since all these elements are easy to replace, you can switch to something else when you want a new look. And hey, if you are using shells, try adding interesting elements such as pebbles or conch shells in your vignette to add to the look.
