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.
For a smaller room, it`s best to keep the artwork on your walls smaller so that it appears balanced and doesn`t overwhelm the room. Think about hanging three related prints above your sofa, arranged in a level line straight across. Always use odd numbers of items, such as groups of 3 or 5 when decorating a wall.
The newest entry into the world of decorative wall decor used by the masses is metal wall art. Traditionally made of iron or other heavy metal, it`s easy to find unique pieces that perhaps weren`t originally used in this capacity in an antique or thrift store. Going to places such as that and looking at items with a different set of eyes makes it possible to turn any metal item from the past into decorative wall decor. From street signs to horseshoes, people are taking things from long ago and using them to create an interesting display on their walls. It`s also a less expensive way to decorate.
