3 Simple (& Non-Committal) Decorative Wall Solutions with Big Impact

Tired of staring at blank walls, but your indecisiveness is "paralyzing" you from hanging anything specific on those said walls?!  You're not alone.

Here are three ways that you can add big impact to your walls without having to "commit" to anything permanent.  These solutions are perfect for renters, or for those of us finicky types who like to periodically change things up!

1.  FABRIC / TEXTILES

Hang a patterned or colorful quilt, blanket, or fabric, to create an instant wall hanging.

Some simple solutions to hang fabric/textiles include a wooden dowel hanger...

...or build a "frame" and mount the textile to it, like we did below!

2.  WASHI TAPE

Treat washi tape like removable decals!  Unleash your creativity and create a geometric or abstract design on the wall using washi tape.

If you'd rather, take a canvas (or foam or paper) board and create a washi tape design on that...

Another way to use washi tape is to "hang" your photographs or artwork with it.  Don't bother with picture frames.  You'll achieve a more casual and fluid look that can evolve over time.  The best part about using washi tape is that your walls will go virtually unscathed!

3. TEMPORARY WALLPAPER (OR DECALS)

I am personally on team wallpaper, with the caveat that it must be temporary!  That is merely because I like to experiment in my own home, which means I often change things up.  The only permanent wallpaper that I would perhaps make an exception for is grasscloth.  The texture is timeless.

Repositionable, peel-and-stick (aka removable) wallpaper is a great solution to dress up your walls or other surfaces.  Bolder patterns, like the one we used in our dining room makeover, are perfect for focal walls.  They are able to stand alone with nothing else layered on top!  If you don't want to paper an entire wall, decals are a great option!

Hope you've been inspired to finally tackle those blank walls!
