5 Ideas for Empty Wall Decorating

Many of us have at least one in our homes – an empty wall.  We’ve tried several different things there and nothing seems to work, so after a short time and yet another attempt at wall decorating we find that wall empty once again.  If you’re like a lot of people, you’re getting progressively more impatient with your empty wall decorating mission, as you’re just not sure what’s going to work.  All you want is for something to go there that looks good and so that you can be done with it once and for all.  The team at Decorist understands this conundrum, as it is quite common.  Below you’ll find 5 ideas to consider with the hope that you’ll finally finish that wall decorating.


Yes, we’re sure you’ve already tried to put some type of art on that wall (along with the other ideas you’ll see below) but perhaps you should try something completely different than what you’ve tried in the past.  Wall decorating is an opportunity to get really creative, and you don’t necessarily have to match the motif of nearby rooms.  Try something a bit radical and see what happens.


Another idea for empty wall decorating follows the artwork idea, in that maybe it’s time to get a bit wild and overly creative.  Paint that empty wall a different shade, as in totally different from other nearby walls.  Doing so will give it a fresh look, but it could also inspire you to add other pieces to it when it’s done.


As we mentioned, we’re not going to present ideas that have never been tried before, but sometimes your wall decorating just needs a different touch or perhaps a combination of different touches.  Wallpaper tends to draw out strong opinions, but if you find the right pattern and combine it with the right hanging piece or pieces, you could change your entire look instantly.


If you don’t like your wall, turn your empty wall decorating project into a project that changes the entire essence of that wall.  Hang some textiles on that wall to give it an entirely different vibe.  This is actually a common practice in certain decorating disciplines, and once again it allows you to get really creative with what you add.


Finally, and not to sound repetitive, but it’s hardly unique to add photographs to your empty wall.  And once again, don’t be afraid to really go for it with this idea.  Have some of your favorite photos blown up into larger portrait-sized pieces and add them to the space.  That will really add some spice to your empty wall decorating.

Of course, every wall is different, so you still may need some specific input from professionals to finally put your wall decorating task behind you.  If you’re ready to make that move and get this done, feel free to contact our team at Decorist at any time with your questions.
