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.
These days, you don`t have to go to salvage yards or dumps to find this type of wall decor. In fact, you can buy new items that are made to look like old architectural pieces. My personal favorite is wrought iron pieces that look like old gates or fences. These go with a wide range of decorating themes and look great on your walls.
