How To Use Graffiti To Give Character To Your Home

Graffiti is becoming more and more popular as the tool we use to bring old buildings and boring structure back to life or to personalize the facades of shops and to make them more inviting. But there’s another way to use graffiti: inside your home. It’s not the type of interior design tool we often use because putting graffiti on your furniture or living room walls is a really bold move and it takes a special someone to do it. But if you’re open to such décor strategies, you can create some really cool designs and give your home tons of personality and character.

Don’t know how to make your bathroom more interesting and how to make it stand out? How about some cool graffiti on the walls? That would definitely give your bathroom the wow factor.

Covering one of the walls with graffiti or even more than one can be a really cool move for a home theater room or a games room. Imagine playing video games in here. That would be really awesome.

And speaking of games rooms, here’s a cool one. One of the larger walls was completely covered in colorful graffiti and this changes the entire décor and the mood.

You can also introduce graffiti in some of the other rooms. For example, you can give your kitchen a plus of character with a focal wall and some bold colors and fun shapes.

The dining room could use a touch of color as well. An interesting idea can be to create a cityscape on one of the walls with graffiti, in case the room doesn’t offer any extraordinary views.

And then there’s also the hallway, another space that’s usually plain and simple and with no personality. A graffiti wall would help change that.

Using graffiti in the bedroom is not of the question either. It can something simple and flower power to induce a relaxed mood and you can use the wall behind your bed so you don’t face the graffiti when you’re relaxing in bed.

Cover the walls in your basement with graffiti and the ambiance will change in an instant. You can turn this space into a really cool man cave in which case the graffiti walls will fit right in.

Graffiti walls work best in urban spaces so apartments are really your best option. In an apartment, any space could make a graffiti wall rock.

Graffiti doesn’t necessarily have to be on your walls. You can also frame it. You can use graffiti artwork to decorate the walls on a hallway for example.

Make a cool wall mural for the kids’ room and personalize their space with graffiti. They can choose the theme and you can give it a few stylish touch ups.

Graffiti is not just for boys. A pink and girly room can also make a graffiti wall look stunning. The great thing is that you can personalize the design with whatever it is you like.

Add a splash of color to a bedroom but keep the rest of the décor as simple as possible. It’s so nice that this bedroom has a black, white and gray palette and that colorful corner.

Not a fan of the TV in the living room? You can have some graffiti on the wall where the TV would normally stand. Everyone will still be drawn to that spot but for a different reason.

And, of course, graffiti can also be used to customize the exterior walls of your home.

And, like we mentioned in the beginning, places like restaurants and shops can easily integrate graffiti in their interior designs.{found on yatzer}.
