Looking for new and exciting ways to decorate your home? There are all kinds of ways you can refresh your home's look by hanging new items on your walls. With special picture hanging systems, the options are endless to help transform your home. Use a gallery hanging system
to make a feature wall or display your favorite objects. Let's look at some interesting ideas for decorating your walls.
This is the obvious first choice because there are so many ways you can go with different types of artwork
. Get a minimalist painting for a light and airy office, or get something impressionist for your den. Whatever your style is, there is always artwork out there to suit your tastes.
Want something more modern? Quote prints are a great look for home offices or living areas. Pick something inspiring or something humorous - whatever quote makes you smile when you read it.
If printed quotes don't quite suit your style, check out laser-cut quotes. These give a great raised effect and the lack of frame creates a more seamless look on your walls. You can often pick from wood, metal, or different colors of plastic.
We all have clocks on our smartphones these days, but a wall clock is still a great addition to your living space. A clock can be a central point of focus on a wall, helping tie together other ornaments and pictures. You don't need to settle for a boring traditional clock either there are a lot of great modern and abstract clocks.
Want to make your living area feel airy and bright? Use mirrors scattered across the room to add some light. Or have several mirrors on one wall for an interesting focal piece. While square mirrors are a classic look, round or shaped mirrors make for a great modern look.
Got collectables sitting hidden in boxes? Still got some of your favorite action figures from when you were a kid? You can get wall-mounted display cases that are ideal for displaying items. Cluster several together to make a feature out of them.
If you play any instruments, hanging them on your walls might seem obvious. You can get a lot of specialist hooks that let you take the instrument down for easy playing. Even if you don't play, you can score a musical instrument for cheap at a thrift sale and use it to jazz up your decor. Trumpets and other brass instruments are great for a funky modern look, while guitars and violins look great for more homely rooms. You can even repaint guitars
to fit your theme.
Got a nice set of dishes that you don't really use? You can display these on your wall for a cute, homely feel. Either pick dishes that match your color scheme for a refined look, or have splashes of color everywhere for something more vibrant.
If you're someone who has more silk scarves than you could ever wear, use them to decorate your walls. Lay them flat and put them in frames, or have them hanging from a bar along the top of your wall.
For a bit more of a DIY approach, you can easily cover a canvas in fabric
. This lets you create a kind of faux-feature wall without having to hang wallpaper. You can even match it to your curtains or your upholstery. A large canvas works best, but several small canvases in a staggered arrangement can look great too.
Most people either love or hate the industrial look, but road signs can be part of a vintage look as well. Find a sign from somewhere that means something to you, or pick a warning sign or a train sign for something niche and unique.
Neon has never truly fallen out of fashion. The huge upside to neon signs is that they can work as part of a mood lighting setup as well as being wall art.
Your walls, your choices
Almost anything can be hung on walls with the right hanging system. Decide if you want a cluttered look or a more minimalist look, and just go for it. Still, struggling for inspiration? Look through your cupboards and try thrift sales to find something unique.
