Peel-and-stick everything is having a moment — and rightfully so. Whether you live in a rental space or are just scared of damaging your floors + walls, these temporary, rental-friendly home decorating ideas from genius self-taught DIYers and bloggers Alexandra Gater and Fariha Nasir are your ticket to a trendy (and practical!) living space — without the commitment.
1. Create a removable board and batten wall.
2. Use a peel-and-stick dry-erase wall calendar for your home office or meal planning.
Organization goals, but make it cute + fun. Here's what you'll need to create your own peel-and-stick dry-erase wall calendar like Alexandra's — perfect for a rental space.
3. DIY removable light fixtures.
4. Use electrical tape to create super cool, customized wall décor.
Fariha used electrical tape to make this adorable design in her son's bedroom. Get more electrical tape décor inspiration here.
5. Refresh your laundry room (or bathroom... or kitchen) with removable upgrades.
Get more peel-and-stick backsplash tile ideas here — which would work in a laundry room, kitchen or bathroom.
6. Use peel-and-stick wallpaper to dress up temporary living spaces.
7. Decorate your stairs with peel-and-stick decals.
How amazing are Alexandra's stairs?! She got her decals from Quadrostyle. To install, she used a cloth to smooth the decal out on the stairs and a utility knife to cut the excess material off.
8. Transform your kitchen or bathroom with peel-and-stick floor tiles.
These floor tiles in Alexandra's bathroom? You guessed it — stickers. Alexandra got these from Quadrostyle, too.
9. Customize your refrigerator with peel-and-stick wallpaper.
That's right, you don't have to use peel-and-stick wallpaper on a ... wall. Before you apply wallpaper to your fridge door, Alexandra says, remove the hardware, so you're working with a clean canvas.
"You don't have to line anything up," she says. "And if you have to use two panels, the seam is really easy to hide if there's a pattern to distract from it."
10. Get the look of wallpaper without the commitment by creating your own wallpaper look with paint.
Alexandra created this super unique look on her walls with a level, pencil, foam brush + black paint.
11. Give your couch a makeover with custom slipcover + legs.
Alexandra loves her neutral Ikea couch, but she's always dreamt of having a mauve and/or pink velvet couch — but they can be pretty expensive, she says. So, she used Bemz — a company that makes custom couch covers for almost any Ikea sofa — to make her dream come true.
She also uses a company called Prettypegs to change up the legs (or "shoes," as Prettypegs calls them) on her couch.
