It’s often said that fashion favors the bold. The same goes for interior design as well. The downside to taking any risk however, is that it may not pan out. If you want your interior design to stand out but you’re hesitant about taking any big risks, here are five ideas you may want to consider. The following projects are bold and perhaps a bit risky but easy to undo if you change your mind about them later.

Wallpaper in unusual places

Who says wallpaper has to go on the walls? Wallpaper can be applied to the ceiling as well or perhaps on the backs of cabinets or inside of a closet. Wallpaper is one of the most cost effective ways to transform the look of a space because a small investment covers a lot of square feet.

Bold colors

Like wallpaper, a fresh coat of interior paint is another cost-effective way to make a huge difference in the look of your home. Instead of spending thousands on bright-colored kitchen appliances, you can paint the entire kitchen for a few hundred dollars and a few hours of your time. That cost includes all the materials you’ll need. If you grow tired of the color, you can repaint, only this time you’ll only need to purchase paint since you’ll have brushes, rollers, pans, protective clothe, and painter’s tape.

Accent walls

If repainting an entire room is still too risky for your taste, consider painting or wallpapering just one accent wall. Colors or patterns that would be overbearing if applied to every wall may be perfect when applied to just one. Accent walls are a great way to be daring with interior design without risking as much.

Patterned tile backsplash

Ditch the boring tile backsplash. Use some geometric shapes or some interesting colors and tile your own backsplash. Tile the area just behind the stove rather than tiling the walls above all the countertops if you’re worried you won’t love it. If you’re pretty handy, this is a project you can probably do yourself to save some money.

Peel-and-stick wallpaper

Wallpaper is notorious for its difficulty to remove. Fortunately, there is such a thing as peel-and-stick or removable wallpaper that can be applied or removed in minutes. This wallpaper is especially ideal for patterned prints that are a bit bold. If you decide you don’t like it or if you just want something new to switch things up, you can swap it out for a different wallpaper with minimal work.

Eccentric accessories

One of the safest ways to add bold elements to your interior design is accessories. Unlike larger pieces like furniture, accessories are relatively inexpensive so it’s the best place to take risks. You might find a couple of eccentric pieces at a thrift shop or flea market. Perhaps you can purchase baseboard radiator covers and paint them a unique color. Accessories are easily swapped out and since they don’t cost a fortune, you don’t feel like you’re committed to them if they don’t work out.
