Wallpaper. The mere word can instill a sense of kiddy excitement or slight dread, depending on your past experience. The good news is that wallpaper has come a long way since its conception. Today, you can find nearly every design and aesthetics your heart desires. Even better? Renter-friendly wallpaper, also known as peel-and-stick, doesn't require paste and is easy to reposition and remove. Now, you are free to transform a wall or a room, knowing you can remove it when your tastes change or it's time to move.
Are you ready to excite the senses and stir your inner interior designer? These nine renter-friendly wallpapers incorporate the latest design trends, from maximalist to minimalist, industrialist and modern farmhouse flair.
Let's explore the possibilities.
Did you know accent walls are making a comeback? The in-thing in the early 2000s, like all great ideas, they've emerged from a past fad to the latest trend. The right wallpaper and color can make a small space feel more inviting and provide a focal point, whether big and bold or soft and welcoming.
Consider how the color aligns with your decor and affects your mood. For instance, this wallpaper brings a touch of aqua, the Latin word for water. It evokes feelings of peace and tranquility, like when you're sitting by the ocean or on the edge of a still blue lake.
If you lean toward an eclectic blend of colors, shapes and cultures, you may possess a bohemian soul. This free-spirited adventurer loves nature and natural elements, with every piece, from art to woven baskets, telling a story.
This bohemian floral wallpaper brings neutral earth tones with natural browns and terracotta-colored flowers. Added to one wall, it can inspire your entire design. If a whole wall is a little too much for your tastes, you can also add a splash of intrigue by applying it to the front of furniture or the back of open cabinets.
Floral wallpaper can find its way into almost any type of design, from French country cottage to old-world charm. This lotus floral peel-and-stick wallpaper with metallic gold and gray offers a contemporary take on floral wallpapers. It's ideal for bedrooms, bathrooms, closets and accent walls in living rooms.
Have you embraced the vintage furniture movement? Adding another element to the walls, such as vintage-inspired florals, can create contrast within the same design element. Consider a gold antique chair next to your beautiful lotus flowers. And if you're ever having a rough day, remember lotus flowers represent rebirth, purity and resilience.
It takes a certain measure of confidence to go big and bold. You tend to walk through life with a fearless stride, setting an unwaverable course. And while your home's aesthetics has little to do with trends and more to do with personal desire, you'll be slightly interested to know that striped wallpaper is still going strong in today's design world.
Vertical bold black and white stripes create an elegant and sophisticated air to any space. Imagine a plush white chair in front of this design or a black wooden chair next to a white table. If you're looking for a more subtle statement, this renter-friendly wallpaper also comes in gray or beige and white.
You don't need high ceilings, an open floor plan, exposed brick walls and metal beams to create an industrial look in your apartment. Sometimes, it's as easy as removable wallpaper that looks like bricks! This intriguing wallpaper can transform a room, your entire home or the backsplash in the kitchen.
Are you less industrial and more rustic or modern farmhouse? Brick wallpaper also aligns with these trendy styles. Gray and white bricks are a perfect backdrop for light-colored furniture and finishings. Red bricks complement wood and earthy tones, like green sage, black and dusty blue.
Renter-friendly wallpaper outdid itself with murals inspired by nature's waterfalls. From lush green tropics to icy blues and fall colors, there's the perfect scene for every color scheme. This wallpaper is for those who want to bring the outdoors in, in a big way.
Do you want to wake up to the image of a waterfall rushing over rocks into a crystal-clear pool? Perhaps you'd like to create a tropical retreat in the living room with palms and other houseplants nestled next to the image. Nature murals create a relaxing environment with an eye-catching focal point.
If you're a tactile person who feels their way through life, textured wallpaper may be an ideal addition to your living space. Added texture can transform a room, creating depth and making it feel more spacious. Consider the gray-brown wallpaper for a natural vibe, teal for a pop of color or gray-blue for a sense of peace and relaxation.
Once you've got your wallpaper up, think about where you can add a few accents to bring it all together. A teal throw pillow, a woven rug or a lavender candle can all unify a space. When asked who your interior decorator is, simply smile.
If you've dreamed of living out on a ranch or in the stunning Tuscan countryside, this wood grain wallpaper may be for you. The wallpaper creates a wood panel effect that aligns with today's rustic design trends, from farmhouse to Tuscan. With its blue tones, it's also an ideal addition to the coastal design trends that blend natural textures with the colors of the sea.
If you're going the coastal route, consider adding nautical elements, like oceanic paintings, anchor rope and shells. This is another wallpaper that looks great when combined with natural greenery and indoor plants.
