You can’t paint or wallpaper the walls but you still want to change the color. To partially solve the problem and make an accent at the very least, hang a big canvas on the wall and paint it in a color you want. If you can’t drill holes for the canvas, simply hang a big sheet of wallpaper with double sided tape.

A new rug is one of the most impactful decor pieces and it’s very easy to add or replace and take with you when you move out. Try a new, perhaps fancy, pattern to bring a room together in a different way.

Hang them high and wide, if you can’t drill holes, use command hooks to hang the curtain rod.
