Create an accent wall
If there is any easy way to amp up the look of your walls, then creating an accent wall tops that list. It is a fantastic way to transform your space without putting in too much effort. You could paint it with any colour, texture, design of your choice, get a wallpaper, even better, install tiles on that wall or paint a mural.
These days getting a stencil paint is also very trendy. You could go bold with a dark, bright shade for an accent wall. Some designing instead of a plain solid colour is a preferred option as it makes the wall look more attractive and designed.
Go for a large scale art
In any room, having a highlighted feature or a focal point draws the attention of the visitors and it becomes the USP of the space. If you are someone who goes big or goes home, then this choice is for you. A large scale painting or artwork can be put up on the walls to create beauty and magnificence of the space.
You could either go for portraits or you could go for abstract paintings, anything that blends in with the decor of your homes and that beautifies the spaces.
Curate a gallery wall
A gallery wall is that corner of your home that will speak for itself. Nothing adds life and personality like that of a gallery wall.
You could explore a lot of options whilst creating a gallery wall; it could be a collection of your accolades (if you have a lot of them!), or a collection of memorable photographs framed on the wall, or wall hangings or wall plates or even frames of souvenirs you have from the various parts of the world that you have travelled to.
Because it is a gallery wall and the aim is to create a montage, opt for simple, clean frames that would not make the wall look cramped up and cluttered.
Decorating walls with pattern tiles
Another great way to light up the looks of your spaces is to decorate walls with patterned tiles. The good thing about pattern tiles is that the designs, both subtle and bold, make the spaces look great and add a unique charm to the spaces. There are a huge range of wall tiles available in the markets today.
These tiles are becoming a popular choice for most homes since they come in various materials like ceramic, porcelain, cement, glass and so on. They also come in a wide array of colours, designs and textures too. They are available in different price brackets as well, they come in both economical and high end options.
Create texture with wall moulding
You can take the wall decor game a notch higher by creating wall mouldings and trimmings that create an illusion on the walls. These wall mouldings add some great details and texture to the walls, something that is not run-of-the-mill.
You can create the designs that suit your choices and create a dimensional wall with wall moulding and make your spaces look elegant and differentiated.
There is a good chance that you may run out of space in storing your books or collectibles. Hanging shelves on walls is a great way to create open bookshelves that make the walls look more interesting. Having floating shelves on walls not only improves the design aesthetic of the spaces, but it also gives you that extra storage that you may need.
Mirrors, clocks, and other useful objects
These days, mirrors are widely used as statement pieces of decor in most homes. There are literally so many options that you can find in the market today in mirrors; shapes, sizes, glass colours, you name it.
Having a large, ornate mirror as a statement piece in your living room will not only create an amazing focal point, but will also reflect the light in that room and make the spaces appear bigger.
State of the art clocks are making their way into the living rooms of many homes. Seeing time is an inevitable habit that everyone possesses and when you have a clock that is a masterpiece telling you the time, it just changes everything.
You could go for clean, contemporary wall clock designs in metal finishes or go for the good old vintage passing strike clocks that would remind you of the mid century every time it strikes; the choice is up to you.
You could also enhance the look and feel of the spaces by choosing unique lighting elements. Add in a big central wall chandelier to add royalty to your living rooms or go for vintage, rustic looking wall mounted lamp shades for that gothic look
It takes a lot of effort to change up even the smallest of design elements at home. But don’t be scared to step out of your comfort zone and do something out of the box and experiment. Wherever you choose to do, paint it crazy or get a large piece of display, it needs to express who you are and show what your tastes look like. This is the secret to a beautiful home.
