When you see that big blank wall in your home, what is the first thought that comes to your mind? You might think of making it a statement wall by painting it in a different shade and hanging a huge artwork. You could also think of making it a gallery wall and put framed moments of your life. These are some common ideas to decorate the big blank wall. But what if we ask you to step out of the box, get inspired by everything and put creativity on your wall.
We have compiled a few offbeat ideas to help you add personality to your blank wall-
Framed Wallpaper- Wallpapers are the most popular ways to decorate a blank wall. But that doesn’t mean that you must use it in the conventional way. Cut out parts of wallpaper and put them into chic frames. Hang or stick these framed wallpapers on the wall with a decor item over it or maybe just blank. This creative take with wallpapers looks chic and sophisticated for a bedroom.
Message or Letters on the Wall- You might have seen in some movies how a wall looks amazing when it spells out a message in huge letters. Do similar stuff with your blank wall and make a statement. This will be perfect for a library or a study. Place huge ‘Q&A’ on the wall where you spend some alone time, or maybe near your reading nook. Dreamy and dramatic messages would be perfect for the bedroom.
Use Painted Tapes- This is a great and innovative idea to decorate your blank wall. First, paint the wall in a different hue than the rest of the room. Then use tape across the walls. Do not stick to a pattern, just use them from one end to other, and vary the width, length, style, anything. When you are satisfied with the pattern, coat it with a contrasting color; a shimmering shade would be perfect. Leave it to make a statement on its own or hang a few pictures.
Wall Shelves or Brackets- Just hanging a painting is too passé. Use wall shelves and put some artwork on them. Put two wall brackets and keep the painting or artwork on that, instead of hanging it on the wall directly. This will give a refined feeling to the wall.
Go Chic with Vintage- Vintage never goes out of fashion. You can find a sign or a wall art piece in stores that resell old stuff. It might take a little extra effort to find the right one, but if you do it is going to be the first thing that your house gets complimented for.
Panels and Patterns- Paneling is an innovative way to give your wall a barn look. Just divide the wall into different panels and paint in a darker shade. It generates much of architectural interest. Another way is to hang patterned artwork on the wall; it may be made of a cloth, wood or anything.
Go Offbeat with Hats and Baskets- Decor items need not be just paintings or artworks. You can just hang your hats in a creative way, or colored and decorated baskets on the walls to give that awesome feel of a thought-out decor style.
So, here are a few ways to decorate your blank wall. Which one is your favorite?
