There’s nothing more boring than a white wall. Whether you’ve moved into a new home or just never got around to decorating the one you’ve lived in for years, it’s possible to change the look of an entire room by transforming your walls. Here are five suggestions for small, simple changes that will make a big impact:
Paint. Yes, this may seem obvious, but paint truly can transform the look and feel of a whole room. Think about rooms you’ve been in – it’s likely that those painted blue felt more calming, while those that were red felt more energizing. More and more people are taking painting to a new level, with stripes, polka dots and chevron patterns.
Wallpaper. You may think wallpaper is only for use in your grandma’s home, but not anymore – wallpaper is making a comeback to the home décor world. Find a print you love and give your room a vintage, modern, classy, sassy or childlike feel depending on your preference.
Wall art. Create an interesting focal point in the room – and use customized wall art to do it. Whether you choose a gallery-style mounted wall art, canvas artwork or metal prints, draw the eye to your photos.
Old t-shirts. Yes, you read that right. We all have shirts that we love but no longer fit our bodies or our styles. Use them to transform your walls. Cut the arms off the shirt, take a 12”x12” piece of canvas, stretch the t-shirt over the canvas and staple the shirt to the back of the canvas. Trim the excess cloth and voila! You’ve got a wall tile to hang as part of a vintage t-shirt collage.
Decals. Decals are essentially stickers for your wall. They come in a variety of shapes, colors, themes and sizes, and include both pictures and words. They’re a cheaper alternative to expensive artwork or wallpaper.
Remember, decorating your home doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. Consider these ideas when brainstorming your next home décor project. Transform your walls – and you’ll transform your entire living space.
