5 Ways to Revamp Your Blank Walls

If the same old colorless, dull walls seem to characterize every part of your home, and friends and family politely glance away into the center of the room, you may want to begin thinking about raising the energy in your home by giving your blank walls a complete makeover.

Tranquility and even nostalgia can radiate from those familiar walls if you let them. Just imagine your guests stepping into your home, oohing and aahing in delighted adoration. The thing is, you really don’t have to be super wealthy to have beautiful walls that speak to your personal sense of style. They are achievable for any Singaporean home.

With just a little bit of thought, you can say goodbye to those boring walls once and for all. Here are 5 ways to put a creative spin on your blank walls:

Here’s something that can be a little easier than completely doing up the entire wall. There’s even a chance that it might look even better – do them up halfway. It may sound lazy, however, if done right, it can give you some interesting results. You may also not end up using as much paint or material.

First, pick out the kind of mood or style that you would like the room to have and then choose the color that is best for achieving the desired effect. The colour blue is great for creating a cool and clear environment, which is especially useful for the study area.

Other than paint, consider using materials such as long striped woods to add visual interest to your space and elevate the quotient of style. There’s no need to worry about putting the dividing line precisely in the middle of the wall because this look just seems to work no matter where it is place at.

It probably goes without saying that covering all your walls in a uniform color or material can leave your home looking a tad monotonous. Consider implementing a well-thought-out choice of different materials on the same wall.

Don’t be shy when it comes to getting a little creative. Select textures and materials that either match each other or form a juxtaposition that crafts an overall unique vibe. You can try fixing a wood panel on the bottom half of the wall and a contrasting fabricated texture on the upper-half.

You don’t need to be mathematically precise when it comes to placing a dividing line. There can be a slant in the division or a quirky transition from one material to the other on the same wall.

There are a variety of implementation options with regards to using decorations against blank walls. However, picking out the right types of decoration to suit the complete overtone of a space may be easier said than done. If you were to place a painting that is not relevant with regards to the rest of the room, you may throw off the quality of the entire space.

When placing art pieces on walls, try to be consistent with the setting. Go for elegant and sophisticated art work to exemplify the opulence of your abode. Alternatively, a valuable photo with your loved ones may also take precedence as the focal piece to bring life to your wall, while adding a doze of personalization to your overall space. One important thing to know is that these hanging frames should be in tune with the surrounding space.

Another way to go about incorporating decor is through the use of sculptural mirrors. With the right designs in the right places, these limelight-stealing mirrors can serve a greater purpose than simply being a means of checking your teeth or fixing your hair. They can put a stylish, classy spin on your space’s setting.

Consider adding some charm to your tired walls by spicing them up with geometric shapes. If you’d like, pair the chic attitude up with some soft furnishings. You may be pleasantly surprised by the results.

When decorating with multi-coloured geometric shapes, pay attention to correct colouring. There should be just enough contrast to make your design stand out nicely but not so much that it ends up becoming an unsightly composition. Don’t worry though, in order to pull this off, you may just need to rely on some simple good taste and a dash of imagination.

Cut back on the excessive clutter and jazz up your space with a good old, wacky wallpaper! Whether they feature leafy or geometric motifs or fun and quirky imagery, wallpaper can be found in a tremendous variety of different styles. This can make it quite a headache to get the one that suits your needs best. Keep at it though because selecting the right one can be the icing on the cake when it comes to making your space A+.

Wallpaper can dramatically amplify a theme through color and artwork. If you’re feeling that things may get a little repetitive from wrapping up the whole space in the same wallpaper, you can put it up on one or two walls only.

Apply what you believe best suits your space and don’t feel that you need to limit your creativity to only one or two approaches. Also, bear in mind that the approach you should take can depend on certain variables, such as the mood you’re going for, the resources you have available and the budget you have at hand.

If you are going to be doing all the work yourself, do not rush things. Try and make sure that you have all the necessary tools readily available. Lastly, be sure to keep an open mind. Listen to and consider the opinions of others, so that you don’t get tunnel vision and end up stuck in a rut. Stay flexible but be decisive at the same time. Bring your blank walls to life today!
