No Paint Allowed? 5 Ways to Decorate Walls Without Paint


When renting a house or apartment, painting walls is a big no-no. Fortunately, there are myriad other ways to spice up your rooms without ever having to touch a roller. Here are 5 creative ways to decorate your walls without paint.


Gallery Wall

Gallery walls are always a great idea. In addition to looking absolutely Instagram-worthy, it is a great way to showcase photos of your family, friends and wonderful memories. Alternatively, you can show your creative side by displaying art by your loved ones, or by buying prints or art pieces that catch your eye. Use Command Strips instead of nails to ensure you don’t have any issues with your landlord after moving. 


Temporary Wallpaper

Temporary wallpaper is an absolute life saver. Ditch permanent wallpapers or paint for temporary wallpapers, which you can change up every season. Simply peel and stick the wallpaper to add a delightful splash of colour to your rooms. 


Instagram Prints

Transfer Instagram photos from feed to IRL. Print a few of your favourite Instagram photos and use them to create a gallery wall or hang a few prints that remind you of the good times. Each Instagram print can have up to 30 images. It’s also available in 18 sizes, with both portrait and landscape orientations. 


Triptych Photo Panel

A triptych adds a layer of sophistication to your room. Choose a digital art piece that can be divided into three and transfer the triptych to a canvas wrap.  The texture and subdued colour of the natural fibre base creates a beautiful image with striking colours. Thankfully, canvas wraps can also be hung using Command Strips, which makes removing them easy. 


Wall Stickers

Wall stickers, also known as wall decals, are a vinyl sticker that can be affixed to a smooth surface. They’re a great way to jazz up your home and inject some much-needed colour to cream or white walls. Moreover, they are a particularly good idea when it comes to children’s bedrooms. This is because wall stickers can be easily removed when your child grows up.
