There is a never-ending list of possibilities when it comes to wall décor, but that list seems to shrink automatically when the walls belong to a dorm or rented space.
When I stepped into my college dorm, I was greeted by four white walls. I was excited to be there and was full of ideas for the room, but over time I felt like the bare walls were closing in on me.
Empty walls are as unattractive as walls with too much going on. Walls are giant canvases waiting to be filled, and décor allows you to run wild with it.
Here are a few simple tips and rules for covering your walls in a small space.
To start, be sure your room agreement allows you to decorate your walls. Painting or drilling holes might not be allowed, so be sure to keep the rules of your agreement in mind. Some leases say tenants may paint as long as the walls are returned to their original color, but not paying attention to the contract will come back to haunt you when move-out inspection rolls around.
