5 Alternative Ways to Decorate Your Walls Without Painting

5 Alternative Ways to Decorate Your Walls Without Painting
  • Opening Intro -

    There are times when your walls start to look pale, cracked and boring.

    This is totally normal since every product, including the wall colors, have their expiration date.

-------------------------------------

Now, if you’re like me, you just can’t stand boring and faded surroundings, but right now, you just can’t afford house painting, here are 5 ways you can use to bring your walls back to life.

Temporary Wallpaper

It can also be called strippable or peelable wallpaper. It is a decorative material with a huge number of different patterns which looks and works like a real wallpaper, but it’s easier to remove since it leaves zero remnants and it is as strong as post-it. You can find it in any furniture or painting store, or you can buy it online. As for the price, for one 8-foot-tall and 25-inch-wide panel costs around 100$. Now, if you want to save money, my suggestion is to use it for only one accent wall because, aside from the fact it will cost you a lot less money, it will also look fancier and more stylish, so basically it is a win-win situation.

Metallic Wall Covering

This is a new and modern interior design trend, which is being used a lot lately. You can use it on the entire room or just one accent wall – it will look fabulous either way. This wallpaper is usually made out of shiny fiber which is applied to thick wallpaper and then covered with a top layer which increases its durability quite a bit. Despite it’s awesome look, it is also a very heavy and sturdy mixture which lasts a lot longer than the regular wallpaper. If you’re worried that it will look too shiny, you can buy a less shiny metallic or combine it with matte wallpapers. You can buy these wallcoverings at home improvement stores or simply order them from an interior designer.

Curtains

Yes, I know, why would you put curtains on a wall with no window on it? Well nobody has to know that, right? You can simply attach a curtain rod to your wall near the ceiling and hang a cool long fabric on it. Of course, if you want to make it even more fun and super cool, you can buy a wallpaper with a rainforest or a Tokyo skyline motive (these are just examples, you can put whatever you like) and put it behind your curtains so it will look like you have a window to a different part of world, or even another dimension if you put some space wallpapers. It’s really up to you and your imagination

Peel and Stick Backsplash Tiles

These are designed for the kitchen area. If your kitchen walls are ruined from all the smoke and food splashing around, you can cover them up with these panels that are available in a bunch of different styles. They’re easy to adjust since you can cut them with scissors or a knife. Another practical side is that you can clean them with a cloth so you don’t have to worry about the food stains anymore.

Wall Accessories

If you are not into painting or wall covering right now, you can always add some tiny decorations to your wall. For example, you can put a bunch of different sized pictures, in color, or the black and white ones (depending on your interior style) and make a picture collage. You can make your own art by buying some canvasses and creating your own paintings. With this option, you will have a lot of fun but also make your walls one of a kind. Another great idea is to put a clock on your wall if you haven’t done it already. A house without a clock is like a door without a lock. Now you can find hundreds of different clocks online, but you can also find them in home improvement stores.

These are some basic ideas, but of course you can always use your imagination and add your personal touch to everything. All in all, I’m sure you will do an amazing job.
