Interior walls comprise a large part of home design. The most obvious way to play up your walls is to select a painting or wall art from your local department store. However, there are other interesting ways of doing this. Get tips...
For a one-of-a-kind look with limitless possibilities, go for a mural painting. Murals are usually priced on a per-square-meter basis, and may differ in price depending on the complexity of the design and quality of paint. A mural can provide a custom-made design for your wall that will surely go with your room interiors.
For a less permanent wall design, try wall decal stickers. This works well for trendy designs you may want to incorporate at any given moment. These are also great for themed designs for children's bedrooms, because it’s easy to peel off once your child outgrows the style.
Fabric wall art
Consider the possibilities of fabric as a material for wall art. Stretch beautifully patterned fabric over a wooden frame and hang it on an accent wall. You may also do this in a diptych or triptych format, with two to three panels of patterned fabric. Another way to use fabric is by opting for a padded wall. This can be a stylish feature on the headboard or dining banquet seat all the way up to the ceiling.
Experiment with a combination of different materials. There is a myriad of options for wall cladding. Wood veneers and laminates may be paired with graphic coat glass and mirrors. Don’t just think of these materials in terms of panels. Cut-out designs on medium-density fiberboard, with a different material for the backing to create a beautiful focal point.
