At some point in our lives, we have to dabble in redecorating our rooms, an apartment or even the entire house, especially if we are renting. And, yes, sometimes that can be pretty dull and boring. Even though you might get scared of the idea, it might actually be easier than you think. There are some small things you can do and details you can implement that give a totally different image of a room.
Here are 15 easy and amazing decor ideas that are perfect if you are renting as they won’t leave any trace once you need to remove them, courtesy of Diply.
1. Decorative fencing
Give your backyard a brand new look with some decorative fencing. You will need only two nails to secure the greenery backdrop.
2. Make a temporary towel bar

4. Contact paper
Take a good look at the picture below. It looks like you are looking at totally different rooms, right? You can use contact paper almost everywhere: just place it on the backs of your cupboards, outdated counter-tops, or even your refrigerator.
5. Hide household eyesores
You wouldn’t know that there is a cable box hidden there, would you? Actually, covered. In order to cover it without interrupting its function, you only need some decorative sheeting.
6. Knobs without drilling holes
Even though it seems impossible, it actually isn’t. If you don’t want to damage your cupboards, just cut a Command Strip to fit the bottom of your knob, peel, and stick!
7. Whip up some Faux Roman shades
It might seem too much trouble but all you need is some fabric, hemming tape, and tension rods. What a difference it makes!
8. Walk the plank
Can you believe that this wall is actually made out of paper? It comes in a wood grain design and it looks amazing. Adhere it to the wall using some tape along the edges of the paper and cover it with two pieces of wood trim.
9. Gallery-style walls
These are absolutely stunning. You can transform your empty wall into a gallery of your life. You will need a collection of pictures which you are going to attach to string lights or wire.
10. Temporarily replace light fixtures
Give your room a brand new look by temporarily replacing the light fixtures with more modern ones.
11. Make your boring windows pop
If you are tired of the boring and dull look of your windows, you can easily change that by just using washi tape or temporary wallpaper in order to create a special design next to them.
12. Dress up your windows
Replace the tacks and blankets with a patterned drapery. Simply spray paint some hooks to match the color and texture of the curtains.
13. Create a unique centerpiece
It is always easy to just go out and buy an interesting centerpiece, but why not get creative and make something yourself? Not only will it be cheaper, it will also be tailored and one-of-a-kind.
14. Swap out the original hardware
Transform your old and boring room into a futuristic-looking one. Changing the hardware in rooms like the bathroom, your bedroom, and the kitchen will be enough to do the trick.
15. A “Temporary Wallpaper”
Use wallpaper in the kitchen or in your bedroom in order to create an interesting and fun vibe – you can even cover the risers of your stairs!
