When decorating, you sometimes get stumped on what to do with a blank wall. Should you hang a painting? Should you display photos? If you’re tired of these, check out what else you can do. Here are some suggestions: 

1. Add texture.

Use wall cladding to make a great focal point in your space. To add warmth, you can also work with wood or stone cladding. Want a faster way to add texture? Use wallpaper that looks like wall cladding, like the one seen in the photo above.

Find different wallpaper designs at Wallcrown, Unit CS 242 MC Home Depot Fort Bonifacio, 32nd St. cor. Bonifacio Blvd., Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City, tel. (02) 659-4576. 

2. Make a reminder board.

You can never go wrong with chalkboard paint on a wall, because having one makes your space hip. It is functional as well. Post your notes and lists, or have fun with lettering or calligraphy when you have a few hours to spare. 

3. Be creative in displaying your kids’ artworks.

Add more charm to your kids’ masterpieces by using blank frames when displaying them. You can even display their photos or small toys—all these make for delightful wall accessories. 

4. Display a DIY décor.

Mom blogger and DIY enthusiast Helene Santos of Mrs. Mommyholic made this sunburst mirror using only sheets of cartolina! Learn how to make one here.  

5. Make a statement on the façade of your house.

Who says wall décor is limited only to the house’s interiors? Make your façade interesting with a showstopping wall accessory. This old wheel repurposed into wooden wall clock made by artist Oly Sese does just that on the façade of Avellana Art Gallery at 2680 F.B. Harrison St., Pasay City.
