Sometimes, all it takes is a little change of scenery. Luckily, wallpapers can give you just that. They’re a quick and easy fix to your boring walls, and there are thousands of designs to choose from. Whether you’re looking for prints with intricate patterns or wall-length murals that look almost like paintings, there’s sure to be a wallpaper to suit your taste. Just make sure your choice matches the rest of the room.

2. Create some new storage options

If you want to convert that empty wall into a usable space, consider installing shelves and ledges that you can use to either display objects or store them away for future use. Ledges are a great way to show off your books or knick-knack collection. Shelves are more of a practical storage option, so remember to plan the layout before buying any materials.

3. Make your own wall art

Feeling artistic? Why not decorate the wall yourself? There are a lot of mediums to choose from — paints, fabrics, even paper cut-outs! A personal favorite of ours is this DIY Framed Family Hand Print Art. It’s a great way to showcase all the members of your family in a simple way. But if you’re feeling bolder, grab your art equipment and paint something yourself. You can even get the kids to help out if they’re old enough.

4. Curate a gallery wall

For a personal touch, you can put together a gallery wall. It’s a space where you can hang anything you want, from store-bought artwork to framed keepsakes. A guide to transforming your home by HomeServe Living, walks you through a few steps that are important when building your very own gallery wall. First, collect all the pieces you’d like to hang up and then get their measurements. Afterwards, finalize a theme and try out some new layouts. When you’re finished, take a step back to see if the design works. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t get it right the first time!

5. Grow a vertical garden

Do you need to flex your green thumb? Consider starting a vertical garden. All you need to do is choose a wall-mounted design for plants, then pick what you want to grow. Balcony Garden Web has fifteen different vertical garden setups that are sure to give you some inspiration. Anything from pots and pallets to even coconut shells can be used to give your wall a more natural look. While the popular choice is to care for ornamental plants like succulents, you can choose to grow herbs for cooking — stylish and functional!

Hopefully, these have given you some good ideas to help get rid of that boring white wall. So let your imagination and your inner interior designer run wild. Oh, and don’t feel bad about taking the time out of your day to do some home decorating. The Huffington Post claims that all the cleaning and organizing is actually a good stress reliever. It makes you feel in control and leaves you with a sense of accomplishment. So, get to it!
