If you’re looking for ways to make the most of your wall space in a fun way, look no further. Here are some tips about how to create cool, conversational walls that also serve functional purposes.
Wallpaper and unique shelves
Accent walls add life to a room. To accomplish a great accent wall, find a patterned adhesive wallpaper that matches your room’s color scheme and theme. After applying the wallpaper, consider adding shelving. Shelving elevates both the look and functionality. Flat, traditional shelves are great, but try looks like funky honeycomb or tree cookie shelving if you’re searching for a unique way to display and hold items.
Kids love writing on walls. No matter how many times you tell them not to, they end up creating masterpieces using the room as their canvas. Give them, and yourself, a dedicated space for doodles and notes in a central place of the home. You could write schedules, display art, and jot down important notes by applying a few coats of chalkboard paint. This is best on small to medium sized walls with no other components like doors, windows, or furniture. Place a basket at a good height for both yourself and kids filled with different colored chalk.
Planks and plants
If you find yourself trying to locate good spots for your indoor plants, try displaying them on a wall all together. Whether you hang or shelve them, an interesting natural looking element you can add to the wall in the background is wooden planks. Wooden planks are relatively easy to install yourself and are budget friendly, especially using reclaimed wood. Now that your plants are displayed on one accent wall, it will be easier to water them all at once instead of going around to different spots in the house.
Creating an accent wall with flare can improve the look and functionality of your space. There are a lot of inspiration pictures online if you need design help. Regardless of your style and home layout, walls are always a place that needs a little TLC.
