Décor Ideas: Walls To Be Proud Of
Refreshing the look of your walls could not be simpler, and whether you’re looking for a quick (yet beautiful fix) or you’re starting from scratch, there are plenty of straightforward changes you can make to enhance the look of your walls and transform the look of your home. Think of your walls as a blank canvas, a way in which to express yourself and to ensure your personality and taste is incorporated into every room. Wall décor is not restricted solely to the way in which you utilise wallpaper or paint, from shelving as a display unit to creating a home library; you can turn your property into a gorgeous place to call home, no matter what your budget.
For those among you who adore the tradition of a book and are very much adverse to the modern technology that is now competing with them, you’re likely to have an abundance of books which are more often than not piled up in a corner awaiting a more permanent home. Creating a home library could be the perfect solution as it will not only free up some vital floor space, but it will also allow you to create a feature wall without the need for any major decorating.
Shelving is so often used as a place to store clutter or to house our television sets, however, they can provide a striking alternative to the standard feature wall – perfect for those who are a dab hand with a drill. Putting up shelving is as easy as it sounds, though it’s important to ensure you have the best quality tools for the job such as those available from Anglia Tool Centre. Once you’ve ensured your shelving is sturdy enough to sustain the weight of your intended items, whether that’s colourful vintage melamine or an alternative place to house your pictures. A significant positive about creating a feature wall using shelving is that it is perfect for any room and can even be used to add décor to the walls leading up your staircase.
Hanging a mixture of prints, photographs and art work is perhaps one of the easiest ways in which to refresh the looks of your walls and means minimal damage to your walls – a significant issue that often comes with renting. Hanging a variety of pictures and even incorporating scraps of your favourite fabrics or framed letters can create a gorgeous feature on any wall, as long as it is done tastefully. If you’re decorating on a budget, you can collect frames from your local charity shop, vintage fair or carboot sale, and don’t worry if your frames don’t match, this all adds to the charm! Lay out your frames on a sheet of white paper first to see how they will look once they are hung.
No matter what the size of your home or budget, there are plenty of smart ideas for wall decoration available on the internet to help inspire you.
