4 Fun And Unexpected Ways To Dress Up Your Walls

Use things that you already have at home!

Shares

As much as we adore fine art and mirrors, sometimes walls are calling for something with a little more character. 

Since these panels are the first thing we notice when we enter a room, it's important that we keep it as chic and sharp as possible. Luckily, wall art is easy to experiment with—from family photographs to geometric pieces, you have the freedom to get creative. 

To inspire you to jazz up the blank spaces in your home, here are some clever design ideas you can play around with.

Use old magazine pages as wallpaper

Instead of letting your tall stack of magazines collect dust in a corner, consider turning your favorite pages into temporary wallpaper. You can take it to the next level by matching the photos with the room—for example, you can put up recipes in the dining room or kitchen. 

RL Tip: If you don't want to commit to this look, you can use temporary glue such as the Elmer's Spray Mounting Spray Adhesive so you can easily take the display down without ruining the paint.

Enclose scarves in a glass casing
 
Stylish scarves don't just complete outfits, they can look just as great when displayed on walls too, especially if your space is lacking in color. Liven up white walls with bright hues to give your bedroom a relaxing and Bohemian vibe. 

RL Tip: When shopping for glass cases, don't forget to measure the scarves you want to frame to make sure everything fits well.

Display your collection

Got a serious passion for collecting bespoke items? Let everyone see by making a display out of them. If you love statement hats, install a couple of hooks on the walls and start arranging your most precious pieces. This is also a nice way of giving your space a personal touch.

Make a collage with empty picture frames

Contrary to popular belief, hanging frames with nothing in them aren't silly. They are actually a very subtle way of upgrading a space. Mix and match different shapes and sizes or go with a theme—as long as you like the finished look and your set-up stands out.

RL Tip: To make your display more interesting, try visiting flea markets to score one-of-a-kind pieces instead of only sticking with store-bought designs.
