The walls of our homes have the power to speak volumes about our lives. Filled walls produce a lived-in look packed with personality, while blank walls suggest that you don’t plan to stick around for long. All that empty space is just a missed opportunity.
While paint is by far the most common decorating treatment for residential walls, it is not always the hassle-free decorating technique people think it is. Painting a room is messy, smelly, and time-consuming, and the level of hassle jumps a notch if you happen to be painting ceilings and woodwork as well as the wall surfaces.
Perplexed by a blank wall? Here are some creative ways to jazz it up without having to reach for a brush and bucket of paint.
FRAMED WALL MIRROR
A sleek, framed wall mirror can add brilliant reflection, letting light bounce off to expand your living room space. It’s also a great way to check your outfit on your way out the door.
CANVAS WALL ART
Embrace your inner art collector without paying private gallery prices. This will work to adding visual interest in your plain white wall.
Wall tapestries aren’t just for college kids. While they are great for dressing up a dorm room, they’re also a chic bohemian decor staple that can help warm up cold rooms.
From wedding portraits to vacation shots, these easy-to-hang picture frames let you display your favorite memories all in one place. Neat.
GRAY AND WHITE BRICK WALLPAPER
You’ll never paint a wall again. If you live in a rental and need a temporary fix to cover boring white walls, peel-and-stick wallpaper may be the answer.
Who says paintings are the only things that count as wall art? A few colorful handwoven baskets can add just the right amount of dimension and style.
GREEN WALL VERTICAL PLANTER
No patio space? No problem. Bring a touch of the outdoors into your living room with a mounted wall garden that will double as decor and sous chef come dinnertime.
Shelves are a great way to add dimension to plain, white walls. These industrial style hanging shelves add points to your living room decor. Plus, they’re the perfect way to display picture frames, plants, and other special items.
WALL OF WASHI
Change your wall decor as easily as you change your mind with washi! Stripe your wall vertically, horizontally, or even diagonally to create a wallpaper-like pattern that’s easy to remove.
One temporary fix for a blank wall is to stick up your favorite rug. Even just a small piece with neutral tone like this will get the job done.
When it comes to decorating a living room wall, you’ve got way more options than just painting it. Whether you’re a world traveler or someone with an artsy side, there are endless possibilities to transform a boring blank wall into that living room showpiece, a stylish expression of your unique personality and taste.
