A boring and dull place looms negating thoughts. Sprucing up your living space is not just a way to beautify your abode, but also helps inspire healthy living.
However, when it comes to changing the mood of your space, including furniture and changing upholstery are the most common ideas that may swirl your mind. But, there’s another way to get it right, and that’s including wall art into your living space.
Wall arts are economical solutions to improve the appeal of just any room in your house, and it’s easier than most of the other ways to renovate. Moreover, you can expect a tidier place, by using your walls not just as a decorative piece, but also implementing functionality to it.
Here are the most desired picks when it comes to using wall arts.
When it comes to durability, textured paints excel all. They are easy to apply, come in a plethora of colors and designs, and are easily customizable. One of the best things about painting your interiors and exteriors with textures is they can eliminate the need for any further addition to the wall. You can very easily create any design of your choice, and textures can match it all. To add to all this, textures are great when it comes to resistance to weatherly effects. And they are also fungi and mold resistant. Moreover, they can easily hide any deformities, such as gaps or cracks in the walls. You can decide the design or artwork that you want in your space, say your bedroom, and using a brush, roller, or simply sprays, you can create a style reflecting your personality.
Paintings & Hangings
It is needless to say that paintings and hangings add life to just any room. Be it your bedroom, your washroom, or kitchen, paintings can justify every space in your abode. What you need to do is create a combination of striking colors in the background and contrasting paintings on top. For instance, if your wall is plain white painted, you can add paintings with more grayscale. This would bring about a sense of collaboration amongst the colors and turn your otherwise dull room into a lively space. To add more to it, you can also install sconces and wall lamps. Or, you can add a keychain hanger to keep your important keys safe. All of these elements mix up pretty well and fill up an otherwise boring wall with lots of energy. In other words, looking at a filled wall will put your mind’s thoughts to rest and think of the elements that are on the wall. Thus, allowing you the much-needed escape from daily monotony.
Wallpapers & Stickers
For intricate designs, that are a bit difficult to create, why not look for wallpapers and stickers? In fact, these items have long been used and preferred for designing living spaces, the most economical way. And to add more to this, wallpapers are replaceable, so you can change them, with your mood, if you wish to. For instance, your 7-year old’s can use frequent wallpaper upgrades, as it’s his/her growing age. And they’ll surely switch to new favorite characters every year. Owen Zaborny from Aspectwallart.com says that a simple, cute way to decorate your baby’s nursery is to use wall stickers. Unlike wallpapers, stickers do not cover the full height of the wall. So, you can paint the walls with uplifting colors and put up stickers for their favorite cartoon character.
If you’ve ever been to a party place, maybe a bar near your place, you might have noticed that these places have painted an entire wall with a landscape or a rustic doorway. The design has a pretty elaborate logic supporting its effectiveness in improving the mood. Why not, use the idea to enlighten your living room or your dining area? Since, these rooms are where most of your family and friends would gather to spend time together, putting up such rustic designs can soothe the mood and help everyone relax. Which is probably what everyone gathering in the room wishes for.
In case, you’re more likely a person who loves minimalistic designs, then we have an option in line for you as well. Paint your walls with a sober color adding a little tinge of decoratives, such as curtains, or sconces, or just a dream catcher. Or, there’s a great British accent descending from the medieval era, hanging old plates on the wall. Keeping the additions to a minimum is not at all a bad idea. In fact, it reflects how conservative or simplistic a lifestyle you prefer. There’s yet another way to keep the designs to the minimum by adding some old photographs, or just a small board mentioning a critical motif. After all, it’s your space, and you’d like to keep it suited to your mood and life mottos at all times.
Bare White Signs & Quotes
Lastly, signs and quotes are always great to add to any room. They enlighten the mood, clarify thoughts, and promote a sense of belongingness. For instance, if you’re a ‘travel junky’, you can add road signs or motivational travel quotes to your rooms. This would not only help you stay connected with your passion, but also drive you motivationally to work towards fulfilling your travel goals. So, no matter what your passion, you can always find some useful quotes and signs that can connect to it. And, if you wish it to be artistic, you can try using different materials, such as wooden planks or old plastic bottles to create an intriguing effect. And, of course, you’ll get to flaunt your artistic taste with it as well.
Decorating the walls in your home does not only improves the aesthetics but can also affect the psychology of the residents. So, adding elements that promote a positive attitude towards life is all the more important when you are introducing decors to your wall. To sum it up, you can go for any idea that suits your taste and integrate your style to give it a personalized touch. After all, you’re gonna be looking and admiring the wall you created for the time, till you plan to change it over again.
