wall decor

When it comes to home decor, every room and space needs some special attention. While you don’t want to overdo it, you also don’t want to leave any part of your home forgotten and unloved. One big and important space that needs just the right amount of decor is your walls. Decorated walls work to shape your home decor and shouldn’t be left blank and boring.

The good news is that there are so many ways to dress up the bare walls in your home in order to bring your decor to life. We’ve put together eight fun wall decor ideas to use when decorating any bare or boring walls in your home. Check them out!

1. Attention Grabber

An attention-grabbing piece is a unique item that doesn’t just blend in with the wall. It could be a large, bold piece of artwork that pops out, or maybe you have a favorite quote that you can enlarge and have framed or painted on to a decorative piece of wood. Whatever you choose, you want this type of piece should stand out but still fit in with the rest of your decor.

2. Small Prints

Instead of going with one huge piece, you can decorate with several small pieces. Small framed prints create symmetry while adding texture to a room in a more soft and subtle way. Try using pictures of different flowers, butterflies, or some sort of natural element that can easily be tied into the other decor in the room.

3. Cabinets

If your wall is large enough, a cabinet can double as storage and decor. A colorfully painted cabinet can be the perfect standout piece that adds color to any room. You can also use it as the base for other decor as well, such as pots, plants, decorative plates, or other knickknacks.  

4. Stenciling

Another interesting way to turn a boring wall into a lively wall is with stenciling. Stenciling just the top half of a wall can make the wall pop without being too overwhelming. Top it off with a mirror to add even more interest in a very simple way.

5. Greenery

Greenery is an easy way to bring life to a bare wall. A tall, potted plant not only draws attention to the wall but opens up the room as well. You can place it next to large, simple artwork to balance out the space.

6. Rustic Elements

Rustic elements are a popular theme in home decor right now and with good reason. Wooden farm signs, burlap artwork, and antiques add character to any space. A stylish barn door can be the perfect rustic element that is also functional when it comes to separating rooms or hiding storage. Not to mention, it really is a fun and unique detail!

7. Wall Mural

A large wall mural will quickly turn a bare wall into a much more interesting one. A more modern twist on a wall mural is 3D wall murals. This can be done with folded or rolled up book pages or magazines and is typically a stunning piece of art.

8. Accent Pieces

An accent piece is any piece that can be the focal point and the anchor for the rest of your decor. An old ladder, a large mirror, or a screen door are all interesting and beautiful accent piece ideas.

Wall coverings and decorations can make any wall stand out instead of fading into the background. Use these blank wall ideas to fill in the empty spaces in your home!
