Renter Friendly Wall Art

Any renters out there? Well this post is for you! Most rentals do not allow you to paint the walls or if they do, then you have to paint them back to the original color before moving out.  This can sometimes hinder one’s innate desire for creativity.  Well, ladies and gentlemen, I’m happy to tell you that you still have a lot of options. One of which is wall decals.

Wall decals can be fun, dramatic, artsy, or anything else your little heart desires.  They can fit any design style and the options are endless. Add color and personality to the space without losing your security deposit.  Wall decals offer an inexpensive, creative and fun alternative to painting.  Check out some options down below and tell me what you think. Are wall decals something you’d try out?

My design style is Contemporary.  I am drawn to the clean lines, smooth surfaces, and the up-to-date look.  It’s important for me to have a casual space that functions well and also has a current sense of style. As far as my personal life, I most enjoy spending time with my amazing son.  We play games, do crafts together, and love to go to the park.  There are so many special moments at his age and I love to share them with him.  When I have that rare “me time”, I like to catch up on my favorite shows, bake, and get a quick cat nap (don’t we all wish that?)

    What neat ideas. I have been wanting a headboard, maybe now I can get one. I also love the tree. Thank you for the ideas

    What a great collection of decals! I haven’t seen all of those yet. Agree – these are perfect for rentals…but also for homeowners. I had a client use the cutest bubble/dot decals in her daughter’s bathroom and bedroom. They brought such a sense of whimsy, and can come down easily when she outgrows the look.

    Thanks for swinging by my blog and for the nice comments on my bedroom project!

    I wish these were available when I was a renter. Then again, who says renters should have all the fun? I think those Etsy flowers would look great in my house…

    These are fabulous and I wish I had known about them when I was a renter; it would have been great to add some personality to the boring white walls!! I agree with the other comments that they would be great for homeowners as well; you can make a statement and change up the look easily.
