Featured Image Caption: Wall Enhancement Tips
If home was a person, then the walls are the closest friend in our homes. We lean on them, paint them, drill holes in them and our kids use them as a blank canvas to colour their world (quite literally!). Walls are the most fundamental aspect of any space, be it homes or offices. How can we not make the most of them after all? Here are some awesome ways in which you can change the game of your homes through your walls!
Paint your walls
The easiest, most convenient and the most cost effective way to amp up the walls of your homes would be to paint them. This is the most apt option to consider if you’re heading a DIY project for your home. There are so many unique design ideas that you experiment with, patterned, stencil paint, textured paint, to name a few. They add more depth to your spaces and help in creating a focal point for that room.
Yet another convenient and easy way of facelifting your walls, wallpapers are super trending today. Wallpapers have been around for ages and are one of the best ways to create a custom wall. Available in a wide range of options in colour, design and size, there is something for everyone. If you’re looking for something less messy and time consuming, wallpapers is your go to.
Curate a gallery wall
A gallery wall is the best display you can have that showcases your personality in the best way possible. Display a collection of your souvenirs that you have got from the different places you have travelled to, or add wall hangings or photographs. Opt for cohesive frames that would stand out and would make a great collection to have on your walls.
Make it more fun with wall tiles
The most interesting part of designing your homes is to decorate the walls of your homes. If it is paint, then choosing the colour that works best for you and your home is one way to do it. Another great way of having fun with your walls is to go for wall tiles. With the vast ocean of variety that the market has to offer in wall tiles, you can choose one that clicks and gives your home a refreshing change.
Incorporate an accent wall
For most of us, having a feature wall that displays a mix of frames, artwork, etc. may not work. For starters, it is something that may need regular cleaning and maintenance that many homes may be too busy to sign up for. In that case, a great alternative and a trending one these days is to have an accent wall. Try out a bold paint or wallpaper or even till that one wall up to make that wall stand out. You could even bring in some patterns through wallpaper stencilling or decorative painting techniques. This is a great way to bring a bigger impact on small spaces.
Hang Up a mirror
Mirrors are a great option to have in homes to bring in the light and the reflection that your homes need to light up the space quite literally and make them look spacious. Consider hanging in an oversized mirror with a quaint frame so that it could double up as a beautiful display piece as well.
Feature it with wood panelling
A wooden element is a popular choice in most homes, be it the flooring or the wall tiles or furniture. Wood brings the right amount of sophistication and timelessness that you may aspire to have. Whilst maintaining wood as a flooring option may not seem as easy, you can consider installing wood in wall panels. Wooden wall panels are versatile and can make your homes look warm and tasteful. Again, there is a wide range of colour, texture and size available to choose the one that works best for your homes.
Mount your television
Gone are the days when we saw televisions sitting on undertables. Wall mounted televisions are the new thing these days. This is a great way to free up the space that would usually be occupied with a cabinet or an under-table and it instantly makes the spaces look more neat. Wall mounted televisions also create that clean frame on the walls that look great. Turn on ambient mode in your TVs and create the ambience of a zen living room!
Using your imagination with walls can really add to the beauty of your homes and spruce them up nice. Walls are such an important part of homes because they are the only thing that comes in your vision. These easy to incorporate wall enhancing ideas are surely going to up the interior design game on your homes and make heads turn.
