If you’re after beautiful decorating ideas but don’t want the long-term commitment of a new paint colour or furniture set, then we have just the thing for you. Commitment-free decorating ideas are great for people who are renting or just those who want something a little less permanent. You can still make a mark in your home, without actually leaving any physical marks behind. The following are just a few beautiful decorating ideas that can last you a long time or a short time; it’s entirely up to you!
1. Removable Wallpaper
When it comes to beautiful decorating ideas, wallpaper can definitely add that wow factor to your home. However, it has usually required a certain level of commitment to install. These days though you can easily get your hands on temporary and removable wallpaper. When it’s time to remove the wallpaper, just peel it off and wipe down the walls with a damp cloth. Easy!
2. Stand Alone Mirrors
Hanging mirrors and picture frames up on walls can leave quite permanent marks. If you’re renting your home, or would rather keep your walls free from marks then you can always try leaning statement pieces against the wall. Try leaning a beautiful large mirror against the wall, either on the floor or on top of a dresser. Choose mirrors with antique looking frames for a sense of opulence or go with a more contemporary design if you like your decorations modern. You could also do this with canvases and picture frames.
3. Floral Arrangements
OK, so this might seem like a fairly simple decorating idea but it still works! Freshen up your space easily and quickly with a vase of flowers. Unlike a living, growing plant there’s no commitment to keep them alive. Change the water in the vase every day or so and when the flowers have wilted just throw them out! Choose your favourite flowers or change up the colours every now and then to give your space a different feel.
4. Decorative Garlands
Decorative garlands make for some pretty cute decorations. Tassel garlands, like the ones from Confetti System, are a popular choice and can be an easy DIY option but you could also try pom pom garlands or bunting. Hang them up around windows or to liven up a bare wall.
5. Tile Tattoos
Update the tiles in your bathroom or kitchen with temporary tile tattoos and removable tile decals. Like temporary wallpaper, all you have to do is stick them onto the tiles and then peel them off when you want to remove them. However, since they’re designed to be used in wet areas, they’re water-resistant. Choose a design that you like and just stick ‘em up!
6. New Cushions
You don’t have to go to all the trouble of re-upholstering couches to incorporate some new textures and fabrics into your living space. Instantly change the feel of a room with new cushions. Choose a beautiful fabric or pattern and scatter them around on your furniture. When you feel like it’s time for a change, just swap the cushion covers for a new design.
7. Washi Tape
While you may be more used to seeing this masking tape used in stationery and craft projects, washi tape can be a quirky way to decorate your home. The upside of washi tape is that it can easily be removed without leaving marks. Use it to create wall ‘frames,’ to decorate appliances and furniture, on door trims and windows, or even to decorate light switches. The potential decorating ideas are limited only by your imagination.
These are just a few temporary decorating ideas for your home. As you can see, redecorating doesn’t have to be a huge commitment. Do you have any other commitment-free decorating ideas that you’d like to share?
