Staring at a blank wall in your home or apartment can feel intimidating. Whether it’s a corner of your bathroom or an entire expanse in your living room, it can be hard to know where to start when decorating. While it can feel almost impossible at first blush to create anything nice out of such a blank canvas, you can design a masterpiece with just a few simple ideas. Here are a few of our favorite ways to spice up a blank wall in a home, apartment, or condo.
One of the easiest ways to add visual interest to a blank wall in a house or apartment is to hang a beautiful tapestry covering all or most of the space. It’s sort of like wallpaper without all the mess and stress. Simply choose a tapestry with similar or complementary colors to those found in the rest of your room’s decor.
Before purchasing a tapestry for your empty wall, make sure you take careful measurements. You don’t want one that is too big or too small for your space.
Put Up Floating Shelves
This design option may work better for those who can nail things to their walls. Floating shelves add style and function to a space. Hang the shelves in a row or stagger them across the blank wall and fill them with any knickknacks you have.
While the shelves themselves can add flair to your room, the things you display on them (and how you display the objects) can create visual interest, as well. Group your books by color or display only black and white photos. The best part of floating shelves is that you can try something out, and if you don’t like how it looks, you can swap out the items displayed on the shelves for something else!
Use Antique Mirrors
Vintage mirrors can be the perfect accessory for the bare walls in your home or apartment. Their distressed frames act as pieces of art, while their reflective surfaces make your entire room appear much larger than it is. And the best part is that creating a gallery wall of mirrors doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg — simply go to your local thrift store and pick up an assortment of mirrors you can arrange in any way you like.
Create a Wall Full of Plants
Do you have a green thumb? Consider decorating your blank wall with indoor plants. Whether you set tall potted plants on the floor in front of the bare wall or display them using floating shelves or hooks, your new living wall will capture the eye of everyone who walks into your home. Plus, it can set the stage for the rest of your room’s decor.
Display Your Own Artwork
Decorating a blank wall is all about making your space feel more like home. There’s no better way to do that than to create your own artwork. And the best thing is that you don’t have to be a skilled artist to paint a canvas worth displaying on a bare wall. With the right instructor (and a fun atmosphere), you can create a stunning work of art, whether you’ve painted in the past or never held a paintbrush before!
