Wall

Sometimes adding visual interest to your entryway suddenly makes a small space feel grand. TikTok creator @makingitwithabby installed her own board and batten accent wall with hooks for coats and found a bench to tie it all together.

This tiny bathroom hack from @therenegadehome also makes use of the back of the door. By swapping out towel rods with command hooks on the back of the door, she made it easier for her kids to clean up and saved some wall space inside the bathroom for other storage solutions.

Max Greenfield — Schmidt from “New Girl” — caters to all the kids who think they hate reading in this satirical picture book that breaks the fourth wall.

Pasting the walls, not the wallpaper is so much easier than setting up a table to roll out wallpaper and apply the paste or soaking it in a bathtub of water to kickstart an adhesive. Consider using a wallpaper-like-mural that you order to the size of your wall to create a dramatic background for your furnishings while adding texture and personality to the room. We found them at www.wallsauce.com, where you choose a pattern, scale and order the number of 24-inch-wide panels that are needed. You’ll find an array of patterns, designs and textures to choose from for every room in the house.

If you’re able to paint in your apartment, you can create a textured brick wall look on drywall by using washi tape to create lines. DIY duo @thesorrygirls tried it out for TikTok with great results.

In the autumn of 1993 when I started Ask the Builder, I knew I’d become a clearinghouse of homeowner complaints, misery and frustration. Homeowners from all across the fruited plains of the USA might understand I was an independent voice and someone who didn’t have a dog in their particular fight. That prediction came true, and lately I’m seeing a deeply disturbing trend.

Renting an apartment or house is a cost-effective option for anyone who’s making their first foray into the real estate world or moving somewhere new — No home remodeling costs! No cost of selling a house to worry about! — but living in a temporary space can cramp anyone’s interior design game. Although you pay a monthly rent, someone else ultimately owns the property and your rental agreement dictates what you can and cannot do to the space. Chances are, you can’t drill big holes into the walls, add a carpet to your bedroom or replace your kitchen’s awful backsplash.

If you need a big focal point to fill those boring white dorm room walls, try this modern picture wall. TikTok creator @andrewfisherdesign shows you how to display all your favorite memories for under $15.

While you might not be able to paint your walls, you can install a removable decal—and @beingtheblooms found the perfect one. This terracotta arch decal is completely on trend and took just 10 minutes to put up.

If you have dated opening between your kitchen and living room, you can attach your own bar top for some extra seating and eating space like @emilyrayna. You’ll just need to uninstall and patch the holes in drilled into the wall when you move.

Cool graphic shapes are taking over the walls of TikTok creators. If you’re trying to replicate the look at home, follow this advice from @jessiefinds and don’t be afraid to just go for it.
