The furnishing or decoration of a wall in a house can make it feel homely. Whether you are a nature enthusiast, an art collector, a book lover or have other adoration, you can customize your walls however you want.

Below are some wall decor ideas to refresh your space.

Large scale art

Bigger pieces of art draw the attention away from the rest of the room, especially in a small space and set the tone. You can choose the colours of your art depending on your preference and the rest of the decor. For instance, if you are looking to achieve a minimalist look a monochrome piece of art would be best. You can also use split pieces of the art that make it whole.

Such pieces can be purchased online or in the local gift shops and art stores.

Hang up mirrors

Mirrors reflect light which gives the illusion of space even in a small room. Mirrors come in different shapes and sizes. Your choice will depend on preference and the rest of the decor.  

Showcase an embroidered fabric

There is a reason why tapestries have refused to disappear from home decor. Fabric whether non-woven, woven or knitted with embroidery adds a pop of colour and pattern to your space and also brings a sense of softness to a neutral space.

Create a gallery wall

A collection of photographs and art on your wall may be just the thing you need to breath new life into your otherwise drab and boring space. Galleries add colour to your space while giving you the option of personalizing your decor. The good thing is it is a cheap and easy look to create.

When trying to create the illusion of a large space, extend the gallery wall to the ceiling.

Paint a mural

A mural is a work of art that is directly displayed on the wall or ceiling surface.  If you are living in your own house, you can explore your creative side by painting a mural. Unfortunately, your options may be limited if your space is limited but you can still get a wall covering.

Install floating shelves

Floating shelves are not only perfect for storage but they also improve the look of your space. The best thing is that they are easy to make and can be used to store just about anything from toys to books.

You can add a few decor items to your shelves like sculptures and small souvenirscollected from your trips.

Hang potted plants

The green colour in plants gives a refreshing feel and lively look to the house. If you are a lover of nature, then it’s time you added a potted plant to your home decor. If you opt to get a love plant, remember that the plant needs care. Fortunately, if you are not able to care for one, you can get a fake one and enjoy the same results. For the best result, place your plant next to large-scale wall art.

Get a wall calendar

Gone are the days when calendars were essential for timing. Nowadays it is rare to find calendars in homes as technology has provided alternative ways of knowing the dates. However, a calendar can be used to decorate your office space or kitchen.

When getting a calendar for decor purposes, go for one with fancy fonts and bright colours for that modern look.

Add baskets to the wall

Baskets are also a cheap and creative way to accessorise your space. Nowadays there are different baskets available for your decor needs including tonga baskets.
