Find The Right Wall Decorating Ideas To Transform Your Blank Walls
If you’ve been avoiding that big blank wall in your home because you’re just not sure what to put on it, then fear not. We have some decorating ideas for your blank walls to provide inspiration. Framed art is just the beginning. Consider all the possibilities!
Wall Decoration With Photo Frames
Everyone has a stack of family photos that never make it out of the shoebox in the attic. Take some time to enlarge and frame cherished family photos then create a photo gallery on a wall. Try choosing a different frame that suits the personality of each person. (Fancy for Aunt Sallie. Modern for cousin Joe.) This idea is a surefire winner when it’s your turn to host the next family gathering.
Cover Walls Without Painting
Want to take an all-over approach that goes a step beyond painting? Take a look at wallpaper, especially for an accent wall. Wallpaper offers a beautiful way to bring color and mood to any room and today’s patterns feel modern and fresh.
Wall Art Ideas for a Large Wall
When you have a big blank wall, you have the opportunity to hang an especially large piece of art, whether it is framed or on canvas. Be sure to choose a size that fills about two-thirds to three-quarters of your wall space and hang it so the center is at eye level. This delivers a dramatic, eye-catching focal point for any room. Be sure to read our tips on how to hang wall art.
Make It a Wallscape
If you find yourself stuck trying to find that one perfect piece of wall art, but seem to never be able to locate it, then give yourself a break and consider creating a wallscape. Create a theme and then build a collage around it. Maybe it’s a design theme, such as beachy nautical or farmhouse kitchen, or pay homage to your travels with framed art that shows your love for Italy. A wallscape is a wonderful way to showcase your personal interests.
Mix It Up
Look to a mix of wall art and other items to create visual interest on your blank wall. Arrange various wall signs, pieces of artwork, a charming clock or candle sconces to create a one-of-a-kind space.
Reflect on This
Do not underestimate the beauty of using accent mirrors to decorate a wall. A large oversized mirror adds a modern flair and can make a room seem bigger. Or create a medley of framed mirrors that is both beautiful and interesting to the eye.
If making an artistic impression isn’t your style, then utilize wall space to provide decorative storage with wall shelving in one of today’s on-trend styles, such as country chic or rustic charm. It’s an ideal way to can house books, collectibles and baskets while still adding a visual element to your room.
Try the Unexpected
Wall art doesn’t have to be in a frame to qualify for display on your wall. Think outside the box and hang something that inspires you: a distressed garden gate, a pretty set of baskets, wine casket covers from your last trip to wine country, a favorite quilt, a collection of seasonal dessert plates. Make it personal and you can count on it serving as a conversation starter when you entertain.
