Think of all the walls in your home as blank canvases waiting to be painted and decorated. Actually, that’s not true only for private homes but for offices and basically every other type of space too. If a space has walls then there’s room for ornaments to be hanged and lots and lots of wall covering ideas which could possibly be implemented. We’re very excited to show you the ones that we find the most interesting and we can’t wait to see your own ideas and suggestions.
There was a time when everyone had framed pictures on the walls of their home but times change and now we’re more attracted to abstract wall decorating ideas. The trend took an interesting turn, inspiring people to give up the pictures and to only display empty frames.
Another interesting variation is the whole mural idea where there’s no frame, just an oversized image that covers the entire wall. It can be something abstract in which case the effect is similar to wallpaper or it can be an actual photo.
Of course, you can still display framed pictures and images on walls in a way that’s trendy and not at all outdated. It’s just a matter of finding the right image-frame combo. If the frame is eye-catching the image would have to be pretty simple. Perhaps you could frame some simple sketches or a few black-and-white images.
Another possibility is to display something special on a wall, something that define you or your home in a unique way. It could be something related to one of your hobbies, something that you crafted yourself or an item that means something special to you.
Murals are great for turning walls into focal points. They have a strong visual impact so it’s easy for such a feature to overpower a room’s interior decor. It’s important to create a balanced interior design where all the elements complement each other.
A really fun idea if you want to cover a wall with tiles is to mix and match various different patterns and colors and to create a unique and original mosaic. You can do that for the kitchen backsplash but also for an accent wall.
It’s not just solid walls which can be decorated in cool ways. You can also make the most of those sliding doors or the window treatments in your home. Also, space dividers can provide beautiful backdrops in certain cases, their role being similar to that of wall decorations and paintings.
Since we mentioned the subject, there’s a ton of cool painting ideas to explore as well. Abstract or oversized paintings are often preferred for modern and contemporary spaces. They’re bold, versatile and they can be interpreted in an infinite number of ways.
Take into consideration the function of a space and the ambiance that you want to create before you decorate the walls. A bedroom, for example, should be tranquil and relaxing so a nice idea could be to paint trees or branches on one of the walls. You could use wallpaper if you want to make things easier.
When decorating walls with framed images, an interesting idea is to use large frames for small images or pictures. You could also mix and match different frame sizes, shapes and colors or to group them up in all sorts of eye-catching ways.
Whatever type of wall design idea you choose, take some time to picture that wall in relation to everything around it. There should be a harmonious blend of elements in the room. Consider the colors, the textures, the proportions, the actual subject or theme of the design and all other sorts of details such as these ones.
It’s important to find that particular wall design idea that best represents you and your home. For example, you might like the idea of decorating some of the walls with framed posters or with inspirational quotes and texts or perhaps you prefer wall decals or wallpaper, framed pictures, paper ornaments or something completely different and original so be creative.
How about a 3D decorative wall panel? A simple, geometric pattern might be interesting but there are, of course, lots of other options to choose from as well. the role of the panel could be a purely ornamental one or there could also be some built-in functionality in there as well.
Think of a theme that would go best with the type of space you want to decorate. For example, the bathroom walls could show images of corals and sea creatures. You could use themed wallpaper, decals or you could paint directly onto the wall.
Mirrors make excellent wall decorations too. A large, eye-catching mirror can be one of the focal points of a room. The idea would work well for sophisticated and glamorous spaces and can the mirror can be complemented by wallpaper and by cool light fixtures.
