How To Brighten Up Boring Walls In Your Home
Whether you’re opting to renovate your bathroom, kitchen, or bedroom, you must make creative use of the space available.
While your primary focus will likely be on sourcing and arranging furniture and fixtures, you should also pay close attention to the little finishing touches that make your home feel complete – especially when it comes to wall decor.
Wall art and decor are instrumental in making your house a home. After all, it:
- Allows you to show off your unique style/personality;
- It brings vibrancy and color into your home;
- Creates a focal point that ties together the rest of your furniture or theme for the room;
- Adds different textures to the space;
- Breaks up large chunks of ’empty’ space.
With that in mind, here are some tips you can use to brighten up the boring old walls in your home – without having to reach for that can of paint.
Hanging photographs is a great way to make any room in your home look more dynamic. Furthermore, when you display old photos, it generates a sense of nostalgia and allows you to share happy memories with other members of your household and any guests that come by.
Studies also suggest that displaying your photographs, as opposed to leaving them in a forgotten folder on your phone, can also reduce feelings of stress and anxiety. There are plenty of different ways in which you can display photographs on your walls. For example, you could create a gallery wall or have your favorite pics turned into canvases.
Make a statement with mosaic art
Displaying mosaic art is a great way to make a statement due to the fact that it adds a unique texture to your rooms or walls. They are also often bright and colorful, meaning they can quickly brighten up a room that feels otherwise dull or muted. Again, there are plenty of different styles of mosaic art for you to consider – such as mosaic renditions of scenery, wild animals, or geometric patterns.
When selecting art for your walls, the most important thing to consider is finding something that matches the theme you’ve chosen for the room in question. For example, if you are trying to get an industrial look, you should watch artwork made from ‘industrial’ materials such as metals. This will help you brighten up the space, but it will also create a sense of cohesivity.
Buy something you love
Perhaps the most important thing you can take from interior decorating tips is to remember that when redecorating your home, you’re designing a space for yourself.
This means that you don’t have to worry about whether or not other people will like the art you hang in your bedroom or living room – as if it’s your bedroom or living room. If you find some art that speaks to you, then display it proudly. You will feel much more comfortable and relaxed when you allow your home to reflect your style, interests, and personality.
