Ugh. This room is so boring!
You’ve got plenty of open wall space but you can’t think of decor to fill it up.
The area has been blank for months now and it’s getting a little depressing.
Don’t let a blank wall bring you down. We can help.
Continue reading this article and we’ll go over some unique wall decorating ideas that can spice up your space.
1. Tapestries or Other Fabric
You may already have something that can work to make your space look beautiful and you aren’t even aware of it.
Do you have a light blanket or a sheet that is beautifully designed?
Grab a couple of thumbtacks for the top and let it hang and liven up the space.
You can make fabrics work for you easily because you can sew them to your requirements.
If you have a wall with odd dimensions, it can be hard to find something that is going to work.
But with fabrics, you can make it work with minimal effort.
2. Breathtaking Images
Are there places you haven’t been yet but you want to visit?
There’s no reason that you can’t put these photos on your walls.
Stock photos are a great way to take in beautiful views of the world without ever having to travel!
Whether you want to see the gorgeous waterfalls of Hawaii or the Great Wall of China, you can find stock images to put on your walls.
Wake up looking at the location of your dreams every day.
3. Wall Shelves
Adding wall shelves can break up the bareness of the wall. There are many different floating wall shelves you can find at any store.
You might choose to create a design on the wall using the shelves or you might just want to have them straight across–it all depends on your personality and desires.
4. Feeling Themed Wall Art
Look at your wall and decide what type of feeling you want the wall to elicit when you look at it. Maybe it is love or nostalgia or inspiration.
There are many different pieces of wall art to choose from. They don’t have to be from a collection.
Look at them and see if they feel like they belong together and break any art rules you want.
5. Unique Lighting
Not only does lighting brighten up your room, but depending on how you place the light, it gives the room a whole new feel.
If you don’t feel like dealing with wiring and other problems, look for lights you can put on the wall that runs off of batteries.
You’ll be surprised how many different designs of lights you can find for your wall that do not require you to undertake any electrical work.
Whether it’s battery operated wall sconce lights or strings of light that you can plug in normally, there are a lot of options to make your space beautiful.
6. Unique Dramatic Paint
Even if the rest of your house is painted white, you can go wild with an accent wall.
While your home might not look right if all of the walls were bright red or a deep shade of blue, having one wall that is unique and painted with eye-catching paint could be just what the design doctor ordered.
Taking on a DIY paint job isn’t as difficult as you might think.
Set the whole day aside, put on your favorite playlist and get to work. If you don’t know how to paint look at articles on DIY sites or find a good video on YouTube.
7. Hello, Plants!
If you’re one of the people that love talking to plants, then it’s time to get chatty! Bring in some green with tall plants, short plants, and everything in between.
Plants can give your space the extra pop of color it needs and make you feel like you’ve added some new friends to the house.
Just don’t get more plants than you can handle! Depending on how well you can take care of plants, you might need to start with something simple.
You don’t want to kill them since brown plants aren’t a great piece of decor.
What’s Right for Your Personality?
When you’re deciding what you’re going to do for your wall, don’t just go with something because it looks nice on Pinterest.
Your home is the one place that you can go as wild or conservative as you like and yours is the only opinion that matters.
While any stranger can see your clothing choices while you’re out and about, only you and the people you choose get to come into your private space.
Look around and design a space that is going to reflect who you are and make you feel at home when you come through the door.
Are you more low-key and want to have a quiet and simple design? Or maybe you’re a big, bold personality and you want to be surrounded by many bright colors and sassy photos that are a reflection of how you feel.
This wall may just become your favorite place in the house.
