Statement walls are all the rage, and it’s easy to see why. Creating an entire room full of brightly colored walls or floor to ceiling photos can be overwhelming, but getting creative with one wall while leaving the others fairly neutral is a great compromise between practical and stylish. There are many different ways to go about creating a statement wall in your room. Here are a few of them.
The simplest way to create a statement on one wall is by using paint. Choose a bold color that complements the more neutral shade used on the rest of your walls. You can even use tape or stencils to create stripes or a geometric pattern if you want more than just a single color to make your creative statement.
Wallpaper is another popular option. It can be particularly useful if you want more of an intricate pattern than you can create with paint and tape or stencils. You can even consider temporary wallpaper as an option if you are worried about the permanence of bold wallpaper.
Some reclaimed wood or boards pieced together can cover a wall to give a room a little bit of a rustic vibe without being overwhelming throughout an entire room. You can even use some colorful pieces of wood if brown is still a little too neutral for your liking.
Photos can also be a great way of adding some interest to a neutral wall. You can either create a gallery wall with frames and various artwork or just cover the entire wall with photos. Alternatively, you can just choose one very large statement piece of art to cover up a good portion of your wall. This wouldn’t necessarily make it a whole statement wall, but it would definitely add some interest to your room.
One type of statement wall people don’t often consider is a wall full of shelving. Some rooms come already equipped with built-ins that you can fill with all your favorite knick-knacks, books, and other items. But if you don’t already have them, you can add shelves directly to your walls or just purchase large standup bookcases and cover your wall with them.
Adding a statement wall is a great way to express your personal style and creativity without making your room seem overwhelming or cluttered. Consider all of your options, including the ones listed above, when choosing how you want to create your own statement wall.
