Don`t think you have to stick to framed pictures and mirrors to decorate a wall! Many people today even decorate a portion of the wall with tile. When it comes to your walls, think paint, stencils, wall murals, tapestries, tile, mirrors, wall sconces, and more! Unlike decades ago, decorating your walls is now an exciting and challenging task.
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.
It`s easy to update living areas by putting a fresh coat of paint on your walls and paint doesn`t have to be just a solid color anymore. There are also all kinds of faux decorating techniques you can try such as sponging, ragging, faux marble, faux wood, faux animal prints, just to name a few. Hand painting a wall mural or a faux scene is another creative wall decorating idea to add originality and interest to your walls.
