Adding a chair rail or opting for a wainscoting or paneling project, which will require a helper with a few carpentry skills, is still another way to dress up those tired old walls. Doing something simpler like covering a less than perfect wall with fabric or just making a decorative curtain wall to cover the entire space is another alternative. Walls decorated with an interesting fabric are practical, good-looking, and flexible and can also be used to complement other fabric items in your room.
If you really want to make a huge statement in your room, then you might want to opt for a wall stencil or mural. Some of these murals can take up the whole wall and have a realistic look to them. I love the ones that look like french doors opening up into a beautiful garden or view of the sea.
When considering wall treatments and the wall decorating ideas you have in mind, it is also important to keep in mind what the room will be used for and what type of ambiance you want to create. For example, when it comes to choosing a color scheme, research shows that red will not be calming, but will excite those who enter. Blue or tan walls are more calming and relaxing. With bold colors, you may choose to do all the walls or just one accent wall. Be careful about choosing lighter colors. You may want to splurge and purchase a washable paint if little hand prints might be a permanent part of your décor.
